EASN endorsed EU-funded projects: Latest news and achievements


The first year of the on-going Horizon 2020 funded project Quality Assurance Concepts for Adhesive Bonding of Aircraft Composite Structures by Advanced NDT (ComBoNDT) was successfully achieved. The achievements and next steps were presented in the ONE-YEAR COMBONDT PROJECT MEETING in Toulouse from 12.05. to 13.05.2016 hosted by the Airbus Group Innovation partner in France. In the first year the CFRP test coupon samples (flat samples) were successfully produced considering a series of single contaminations characterizing typical manufacturing and repair scenarios. The samples were tested via the extended non-destructive testing (ENDT) techniques for surface and bondline quality assurance. The ENDT techniques are explored, matured and optimized showing great capacity of detecting the presence of the single contaminants in both considered scenarios of manufacturing and repair. In the next steps, samples containing multiple contaminations will be produced and tested. In addition, pilot samples on more complex and realistic geometries will be produced and tested via the ENDT techniques, i.e. curved and scarfed samples for the manufacturing and repair scenarios, respectively.
For more information on the latest progress and project news, please subscribe to our newsletter at http://combondt.eu/

CORSAIR The end-users have provided selected samples and have defined the surface preparation and deposition parameters to be used for the repairs. Additional components are being used for the evaluation of the tooling and fixture capabilities, and the validation of the first deposition results. A different Al alloy C355 powder feedstock in the -45+20µm size range and spherical particle morphology was manufactured and utilized for Cold Spray trials at TWI Ltd. The trials concentrated on maximum process parameters in order to obtain higher density Al alloy coatings with improved mechanical properties. Indeed, the metallographic examination of coatings using this powder, confirmed previous findings that increasing gas temperature and pressure, significantly reduces the coating porosity levels to approx. 2.5%. Cold Spray trials on Titanium alloys were carried out at TWI, using the maximum range of available gas temperature and pressure of the Impact Innovations 5/11 system. Under selected conditions, the coating porosity was <2.0% and the coating adhesion was >70MPa with minimal surface preparation. The cohesive strength of the coatings increased to 819 MPa following heat treatment. The Cold Spray coating development activity and the extensive testing using selected powder feedstocks will help the decision making process towards achieving successful repair procedures of aircraft components. The evaluation of the repaired samples in terms of NDT, Structural and Microstructural examination, fatigue testing and surface protective treatments (anodizing) is expected in the next months.

i-VISION The i-VISION project is reaching the end of its lifetime and therefore is on the road to a successful project completion in its third and final year. In May 10th and 11th 2016, the last physical General Assembly Meeting was conducted, in Athens, Greece, where participants indicated that all project activities are well on track, advancing seamlessly towards their completion. More specifically, the main expected outcomes of the i-VISION developments are:

  1. the finalization of a common platform for Virtual Reality & Cockpit related upcoming projects,
  2. the reduction of authoring costs for the preparation of virtual cockpit experimentations, and
  3. a set of public interfaces for further developments.

The final results are expected to meet the requirements of the project’s concept, allowing for the successful conclusion of the i-VISION activities. Hence, the major impact of the i-VISION knowledge-based technologies is to accelerate the design process through the systematic reuse of knowledge while allowing for faster and more flexible creation of aircraft cockpit prototypes. In addition, the analysis of human operations will result in highly competitive cockpits from the end-user’s perspective and will increase the utilization of future aircraft by allowing human pilots to operate in extreme weather conditions.

Coordination and Support Actions: Latest news

CAPPADOCIA CAPPADOCIA (Coordination Action Pro “Production, Avionics, Design” on Cost-efficiency in Aeronautics) is now successfully running its third year of operations. Aiming to review the state of the art of research and innovation and provide strategic recommendations to address existing gaps and bottlenecks, the CAPPADOCIA 2nd Year recommendations report has been completed.
Cost efficiency aims at significantly reducing costs at all levels of the industrial supply chain so as to improve overall industry profitability. The associated approach implies that cost is reduced without significantly reducing the targeted product’s quality. To achieve this objective, an analysis has been made to compare both Cost (effort to provide the solution) and Value (a measure of the benefit). In line with this cost efficiency approach, the CAPPADOCIA yearly recommendations report looks at what is currently harming competitiveness of the European aviation sector. Its main objective is to provide improvement recommendations to the sector’s main stakeholders, including the European Commission and ACARE, aimed at increasing the European aviation industry competitiveness, as well as foreseeing its prospective impact towards how the whole supply chain operates. The full-length CAPPADOCIA second year Recommendations Report can be viewed and downloaded here.
Moreover, the 3rd CAPPADOCIA newsletter is now available for viewing and downloading through the project public website.

CIDETEC Development of surface pre-treatments on Ti6Al4V components to improve multi-material joining
Surface preparation is, perhaps, the most important process step governing the quality of an adhesive bond. In order to ensure the mechanical anchorage and chemical bonding of a film adhesive to a given material, the surface of the last must be clean and with a controlled macro/micro roughness. These surface properties could be achieved by different pre-treatments like laser, sanding, grinding, and in the case of lightweight alloys also by means of anodizing and plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO) processes.
Different investigations are currently under way in CIDETEC in order develop and apply surface pre-treatments like laser, grinding and PEO processes on titanium alloys with the aim of cleaning and creating a suitable roughness and surface structure to improve multimaterial joining.
For example, in the case of laser treatments, the influence of the laser parameters (beam power, scan speed, pulse frequency, focal distance, distance and overlapping between adjacent laser traces, etc) on the topographic characteristics of Ti6Al4V surfaces are been analyzed in order to find the most suitable process parameters to improve the adhesion to CFRP.
