Rapid EF Enablers: less lead and cycling time, no down time

Thursday, 30 September 2021 10:00 - 10:30

In the context of PDP 5 years (Product Development Plan), the time from project start to certification of an aircraft shall be reduced from 8 to 5 years. Therefore, a significant acceleration of the full-scale fatigue test (EF, essais de fatigue) is crucial. The goal is a Rapid EF performing the first life of an aircraft with minimized lead time, increased testing speed and no down time. This includes novel measurement technology and digital methods as well as AI algorithms: virtual sensors, automated monitoring during testing, early identification of damage and handling bid data amounts. Learn how a team of HBK, GOM Metrology, Airbus, and others transform the aspiration into reality.
