Low speed handling quality and innovative engine integration of a new configuration aircraft


The purpose of this topic is to design, manufacture (using Additive Layer manufacturing technology) and test at low speed a model representative of a new configuration. This model will consist of a new fuselage, new tails and new nacelle and an existing wing in high-lift configuration (that will set the model scaling). Wind tunnel tests will be performed to analyse the handling quality, air intake distortion and flow topology (using PIV for example) of this new configuration in low speed configuration. Different geometries will be tested on the fuselage and the tail. New measurement techniques as PSP and PIV will be applied to low speed wind tunnel tests in order to better understand local phenomena. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
