Anti-Crash lightweight fuel bladder Tank Integrated on a new RotorCraft

Periodic Reporting for period 2 - ACTIonRCraft (Anti-Crash lightweight fuel bladder Tank Integrated on a new RotorCraft)

Reporting period: 2017-12-20 to 2019-06-19

The objectives of the ACTIonRCraft project are to design, develop and manufacture seven anti-crash lightweight fuel bladder tanks which will integrate for the very first time ASY robust, light and ecofriendly innovative technologies:
ASY functionalized liner,
ASY lighter fabric,
ASY solvents without pictogram
These anti-crash lightweight fuel bladder tanks with limited environmental footprint will be tested, verified and validated for the high speed compound helicopter
At this step of the study, ASY used the time to:
- Stabilize the specification of the fuel storage by adjusting it between the real need for the major functions according to what can be technically produced.
- Design the 7 tanks according to the structure
- Adjust the right quantity of material to respect the minimal resistance according to the max weight.
The ambition of ACTIonRCraft is to be a showcase project to demonstrate in a relevant environment (i.e. flight tested) the installation of the combined ASY technological breakthrough (i.e. the ASY functionalized liner with the ASY lighter fabric and with the ASY solvents without pictogram) integrated into new products (i.e. the next generation of crash resistant lightweight fuel bladder tanks).
