Clean Sky 2 is a Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) that aims to develop and mature breakthrough ‘clean technologies’ for Air Transport. Clean Sky 2 will deliver breakthrough technologies for incorporation into the next generations of aircraft from 2025 onwards. By spearheading European aeronautics research culminating in demonstrations of game-changing new vehicle configurations, Clean Sky 2 will enable the aeronautics industry to introduce innovations in timescales that would otherwise be unachievable. In so doing, it will drive environmental improvements, increase transport efficiency, and create jobs and growth for Europe.
The scope of the project is to develop FEM sizing methodology and parametric/adaptable sizing tool for CFRP-metal or CFRP-CFRP joint interfaces. The Topic manager will provide experimental data of tested specimens and appropriate CAD data to facilitate completion of FEM models and manufacturing of innovative composite part referring to the nose part of EV-55. The sizing tool shall be free-expandable for different fasteners, providing that developed sizing methodology will be kept together with appropriate strength/EMC test validation. Final evaluation of innovative joining solutions will be carried out by EMC tests on reference and innovative demonstrators conducted in relevant EMC test facilities.
