Final Report - BEARINGS (New generation of aeronautical bearings for extreme environmental constraints)

Project ID: 30937
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


Bleed systems are of major importance for the aircraft industry, since their failures have noticeable economic, traffic and time management consequences. The European Commission (EC)-funded 'BEARINGS' project aimed to propose innovative materials and adapted processes, as well as novel bearings designs through the improved understanding of the encountered degradations using recent advances in contact modelling.

This final activity report provides a brief overview of the project background and objectives and presents the consortium and the implemented methodology. It also analyses the activities that were undertaken and the results that were obtained by the various Work packages (WPs). Finally, the implemented plan for knowledge dissemination and innovation protection is summarised and a list of the produced communication material is provided.
