This proposal covers all actions from the university side required in the call JTI-CS-2010-1-SFWA-01-020 for the development and testing of two designs of an integration of active flow control concepts on a trailing edge of high lift devices, namely:
• the design, including an optimization of the structure
• the manufacturing of coupon specimens and a mock-up
• the structural testing of the specimens
The main technical challenge is the introduction of outlets in the highly loaded skin of the flap. Therefore, this is the main subject of the project, which leads beyond the state of the art.
For this purpose two universities are cooperating and rely on the work of EADS-IW as a partner within the Clean Sky consortium, making sure that new ideas on the integration of active flow control devices into the flap structure are investigated, and on the other hand that industrial manufacturing standards and certification rules are followed.
The DoW contains all work specified in the previously evaluated proposal but without the EADS-IW work share
