Robust- and sustainable-by-design ultra-higH aspEct ratio wing and Airframe

Project description

Designing future-generation aircraft

The volume of passengers travelling by plane is constantly increasing. To address this phenomenon, the air travel sector needs to adopt sustainable technologies. The EU-funded RHEA project within the framework of the CS-Joint Undertaking, a public-private partnership set up to strengthen European aero-industry collaboration, global leadership and competitiveness, proposes to design future-generation aircraft with ultra-high aspect ratio wings. For this purpose, it will develop a methodology based on forward-looking technologies, physics-based multidisciplinary analysis and optimisation approaches. The project will also focus on selected technologies for the aero-structural design process of novel aircraft configurations. Eventually, RHEA will address short-, medium- and long-range missions and introduce a paradigm shift towards robust design methods.
