Active PROtection of multi-material assemblies for AIRcrafts

Active PROtection of multi-material assemblies for AIRcrafts

Objective

"The proposal is devoted to development of the novel active corrosion protection systems for multi-material combinations used in the aircraft design. The development of such new approaches is only possible via deep mechanistic investigation of the degradation processes in confined environments formed at multi-material joints. The second essential stage is finding the synergistic inhibiting combinations which can provide effective suppression of corrosion processes in the case of galvanically coupled dissimilar materials. The ultimate step is introduction of inhibiting compounds to the protective layers, adhesives and sealants used in multi-material design of aircrafts.
The proposal also aims in creation of stimulating and interdisciplinary R&D and training partnership, with actors from the academia and private sector, promoting the exchange of ideas, methods, techniques as well as enabling an accelerated technology transfer from science to industrial scale and of course a continuous collaborations between the stakeholders.
The topic demands strongly innovation and interdisciplinary skills, since there is a lot of pressure from the private sector to develop more sustainable solutions for light-weight design of “green aircrafts”. The developed protection solutions must be compliant with environmental regulations, must present reduced thickness/weight, and must promote energy saves, with longer lifetime. Moreover it has to be considered that the related processing and assembly steps have to be economically competitive. Thus, the actual times are very challenging for this field and new skills and trained people are an acknowledged need."
