Rear End Aerodynamic and Aeroelastic Studies


Exploration of innovative aerodynamic and aeroelastic devices, technologies and concepts of tail surfaces by means of CFD and validation by Wind Tunnel Testing aimed at improving the stability and control function of the empennage and thus reducing the size of the tails. Development, analysis, design and testing of specific aerodynamic devices and concepts to address identified physical phenomena in order to enable a significant increase in the aerodynamic and aeroelastic performance of tail surfaces. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
