CIDAUT Develops an Accurate Mould Design Methodology for Composite Parts Through the Simulation of Process-Induced Distortions

09/05/2014 by cidaut

Within the scope of the Cleansky Programme, CIDAUT leads a research project aimed at the manufacturing of composite rotorcraft blades with very tight tolerances that will incorporate an Active Gurney Flap mechanism. Active Gurney Flap (AGF) systems enable the rotorcraft to safely operate with reduced tip speeds whilst preserving high performances with reduced fuel consumption and noise; something that constitutes one of the most challenging research areas leaded by the Green Rotorcraft Consortium in the Cleansky Programme: the development of Active Rotor Technologies.
