Development and evaluation of a manufacturing process for a lightweight aircraft wheel made of CFRP


Based on an innovative design of an aircraft nose wheel made of CFRP, the objective of this project is the development and evaluation of a manufacturing process for the composite wheel via low-pressure RTM (LP-RTM). The project involves tasks such as manufacturing related advice during the design process of the wheel, development of a manufacturing process, collection of life cycle inventory data of the process, evaluation of fibre lay-up and manufacturing and testing of wheel prototypes. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
