Rear fuselage and empennage shape optimization including anti-icing technologies


The purpose of this research proposal is to develop numerical methods for the prediction of 3D ice-accretion on empennage surfaces which will support and will be validated by the design and execution of experimental testing of passive, low cost and high durability anti-ice coatings. Additionally this project covers the development of computational methods for the aerostructural optimization of a large aircraft component, in this case an advanced rear-end taking into consideration anti-ice technologies and devices. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
