Themed ‘Shaping the Future of Flight’, this years event highlights Airbus’ interest in learning about cross-sector innovation. UK corporate, SME, academic and research organisations focused on developing new innovation across aerospace, defence, automotive, energy and utilities are invited to submit presentation abstracts covering the following specific themes:
From Product to Platform: How can we go from isolated modelling & simulation tools with traditional delivery cycles to a cloud based “service” which allows access to stakeholders (e.g. stress office, loads, aero etc) to directly interrogate our models?
Configuration and Active Flow Control: Small amount of energy for large changes in the flow-field 2) Applications of flow control unlock design space.
Friction Drag Control: Laminarity is a must to reduce drastically friction drag 2) A brand new a/c can be designed with laminar shapes and surfaces: particularly efficient to provide range and fuel consumption efficiency 3) Challenges: manufacturing costs & operational maintenance.
Aerodynamic Design and Optimisation: Shape parameterisation, adjoint approaches, processes for aerodynamic / aero-structural optimisation.
Loads and Aerolastics: Loads Control - Winglet flap (Winglet flap for loads alleviation) and Passive solution enabling more outboard loaded wing 2) Aeroelastic Control - Active control of wing shape 3) Flutter Control - Active wing flutter control enabling large span wing.
Sensors: Monitoring (sensors & big data) 2) Weight & CG Monitoring (On-board weight and balance system) 3) Loads Monitoring (Use of component smart sensors) 4) New Performance Monitoring (customized performance model).
Electric Aircraft: The idea is to significantly reduce fuel consumption by improving overall energy efficiency. This means reducing the weight of the aircraft, reducing drag with improved aerodynamics and optimising the flight profile to use less fuel. But though these improvements can save on fuel there still needs to be a shift to more sustainable aircraft requires major, longer-term solutions.
A title and a short description (maximum of 500 words) of your proposed presentation can be submitted by clicking here.
Bringing together the UK Flight Physics R&T community to share research and learn about industry developments, the three day event commences on 26th November 2018 with a series of keynote talks addressing Flight Physics R&T at a UK and European level, followed by an evening reception and networking.
The deadline for the receipt of submissions is on Sunday 7th October, 2018.
