Development of SmarT Eco-friendly anticontamination technologies for LAminaR wings

Project description

Smart anticontamination technology for laminar flow in aircraft

Aircraft drag reduction is important to reduce fuel consumption and improve overall performance. The aircraft industry is seeking methods to secure natural laminar flow and reduce the risks of turbulent flows. It is recognised that insect debris on the wings represents a major operational concern because it affects laminar flow. The EU-funded STELLAR project intends to develop effective and permanent anticontamination and cleaning applications based on accurate knowledge of the insect remnants' characteristics. The project will investigate the biochemical transformation of haemolymph, the fluid equivalent to blood in most insects, during flight and assess its impact on the aircraft exterior. It will also identify the surface properties that attract the most insect remnant adhesion.
