WING BOX BONDING

Project description

Handle with care but put the pressure on

Composites have largely replaced metals in many aircraft structures, significantly decreasing weight, fuel consumption and emissions while enhancing performance. The wingbox of an aircraft is one of those, a composite structural component from which the wing extends. It is subject to very large loads, and its integrity affects not only safety but also aerodynamics, so the bonding of the wingbox components is critical. The EU-funded WIBOND project will develop a bonding assembly tool that will be able to place the adhesive, apply the appropriate pressure and incorporate fibre optic sensors in the bonding line for structural health monitoring of the bond. The technology will support Clean Sky's airframe demonstrator and beyond.
