Next generation movables for high speed aircraft.


To design and demonstrate multifunctionnal control surfaces for next generation aircraft, and also associated design, manufacturing, testing and certification processes. New control surfaces will have the objective of - adapting the geometry to the flight point (morphing) - reducing loads (more efficient loads alleviation) - reducing weight though optimized structures - reducing noise - reducing manufacturing costs (thermoplastics, 3D printing, ...). Improvements of validation and certification methods will address the integration of simulation as an accepted contribution to the means of compliance.
