Final Report - ACFA 2020 (Active Control for Flexible 2020 Aircraft)

Project ID: 213321
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

This is the final report of ACFA 2020, a collaborative research project funded by the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project deals with innovative active control concepts for ultra efficient 2020 aircraft configurations like the Blended wing body (BWB) aircraft. BWB type aircraft configurations are seen as the most promising future concept to fulfil the Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe (ACARE) vision 2020 goals.

The report provides an introduction of the project and also describes its workplan, partnership and major results.

The main objectives of ACFA 2020 are to provide robust as well as adaptive multi-channel control architectures for loads alleviation and improvement of ride comfort and handling qualities on BWB type aircrafts, as well as the design of a new ultra efficient 450 passenger BWB type aircraft.
