Ultra High Aspect Ratio Wing Advanced Research and Designs

Project description

Advancing research and design of aircraft wings

It has long been considered that the easiest way to improve aerodynamic efficiency and performance of an aircraft is to increase the aspect ratio of its wings, which in turn impacts the induced drag. The EU-funded U-HARWARD project aims to investigate the use of innovative aerodynamic and aeroelastic designs in a multi-fidelity multi-disciplinary optimal design approach in order to facilitate the development of ultrahigh aspect ratio wings for large transport aircraft. This will be done largely through a design study to help determine the potential gains of different wing configurations depending on cargo weight.
