Development of FEM fastener parametric/adaptable sizing tool including EMC impact, and manufacturing and EMC/LSP testing of demonstrators


The scope of the project is to develop FEM sizing methodology and parametric/adaptable sizing tool for CFRP-metal or CFRP-CFRP joint interfaces. The Topic manager will provide experimental data of tested specimens and appropriate CAD data to facilitate completion of FEM models and manufacturing of innovative composite part referring to the nose part of EV-55. The sizing tool shall be free-expandable for different fasteners, providing that developed sizing methodology will be kept together with appropriate strength/EMC test validation. Final evaluation of innovative joining solutions will be carried out by EMC tests on reference and innovative demonstrators conducted in relevant EMC test facilities. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
