Development of a multipurpose test rig and validation of an innovative rotorcraft vertical tail


In line with the Clean Sky 2 objectives, the main objective of this call is to contribute to the reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by lowering the structural weight of a rotorcraft tail through application of thermoplastics. The applicant will design and manufacture a test rig and a load application system, which simulates critical flight condition. Furthermore, the applicant will also execute the tests, including all test preparations such as strain and displacement measurement equipment and evaluation of the test data. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
