Proceedings from Aeronautics Forum  (JEC Paris 2011)

 

Introducing next generation integrated composites aerostructures
 

Almost 26,000 new passenger and freighter aircraft valued at US$3.2 trillion will be needed between 2010 and 2029, to satisfy demand according to Airbus’ Global Market Forecast (GMF).


This demand is primarily driven by replacement of aircraft for newer more eco-effi cient models in mature markets, dynamic growth in new emerging markets, low-cost carriers particularly in Asia, further market liberalisation and capacity growth on existing routes.

 

In order to meet this need, the two Aerospace giants Airbus and Boeing have already announced increased production rates in the coming months and years. Despite the tremendous increase in composites use in aerostructures in the past years, there are still many issues to improve upon in order to prove benefi ts compared to metallic structures.

 

You will discover advancements for a wide range of applications for the next generation of integrated composites aerostructures. The topics cover the spectrum of aerostructures including fuselage and airframe barrels, doors with advanced stitched performs and main landing gear fi ttings with ultra thick laminates.

 

  • A One-Shot Infused Fuselage / Airframe Barrel.
  • A Door Composite Structure with Advanced Stitched Preforms.
  • Ultra Thick Laminates for Main Landing Gear Fittings.
  • Next Generation Non Crimp Fabrics For All Structural¬Parts.
  • New Possibilities in Automation.
  • A Composite Answer to On-board Explosion.
