Periodic Report - SARISTU (Smart intelligent aircraft structures)

Project ID: 284562
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT


This is the publishable summary from the first reporting period of the SARISTU project. Funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), SARISTU principal aims target a reduction of the manufacturing and in particular the operational cost of civil airliners. For this purpose, it matures and integrates different concepts which enable further fuel burn reductions through aircraft drag and weight reductions, reduces aircraft downtime in case of unscheduled inspections and improves the manufacturing times and subsequent performance of advanced fuselage structures.

The prime concern during this period was the successful launch of the programme and related activities, the completion of the initial requirements and specification phase, the launch of initial test activities and the start of specific design activities for the different test articles used for demonstration and performance validation testing.
