Fatigue Test


In reply to the call released by the CleanSky team, named “Fatigue test of sensor integrated CFRP aircraft panels with stiffeners – JTI-CS-2009-2-GRA-01-025”, a consortium has been assembled to perform this project.

This consortium encompasses Optimal Structural Solutions Lda ( and ISQ – Instituto de Soldadura e Qualidade ( Acting as as sub-contractor, and to guarantee the specimen will be manufactured to aeronautical standards, OGMA – Industria Aeronautica de Portugal S. A. ( will also participate. This team has a wide experience in composite aeronautical structures within their fields of expertise.

This project requires 3 core sets of competences, which are covered by each of the involved companies, 1) Engineering of aeronautical composite structures and test campaigns definition and coordination - Optimal Structural Solutions; 2) Testing of composite structures and NDT inspections - ISQ; and 3) Manufacturing composite structures to aeronautical standards - OGMA.
These competences have been acquired working in projects for leading aerospace companies. Details on the relevant projects are presented in this document.

Together, this consortium is confident it has all the required knowledge and experience to successfully perform the task in hand.
