October 23-27, 2023 The large aeroelastic model AE2 has been tested at POLIMI’s Large Wind tunnel under gust excitation. The model, representative of the U-HARWARD project Reference Aircraft with Aspect Ratio = 15, implements the Folding WingTip configuration, i.e. the outer 30% of the wing is connected to the central wing by means of a
AR20+ WORKSHOP ON HIGH ASPECT RATIO WINGS TECHNOLOGIES AND U-HARWARD FINAL DISSEMINATION EVENT (OCTOBER 5-6, 2023)
5-6 October 2023 The AR20+ workshop on high aspect ratio wings, organized by Imperial College at Brahmal Vasudevan Institute for Sustainable Aviation, Imperial College London, will kindly host the Final Dissemination Event of U-HARWARD project, Friday, October 6, from 13 to 15. It is possible to register for the event free of charge.
14 July 2023 Middle July 2023 the aerodynamic test campaign of model AA has been successfully completed. Different angle of attack and side, together with three angles of attack of htail, have been tested for a total of more than 500 test points.
3 July 2023 The aerodynamic model of SBW configuration proposed by ONERA designed by IBK and manufactured by Eligio Re Fraschini has been delivered to POLIMI. The rigid model represents the full aircraft, scaled 1:22. It will be tested at POLIMI to identify te low-speed stability derivatives.
24 May 2023 U-HARWARD second dissemination event took place online on 24 May 2023. A total of 9 presentation were given from three inolved projects: five from the U-HARWARD, three from the REHA and one from the UP Wing. We were pleased to share the results with more than 50 attendees. All the presentations
May 2023 The first week of May, 2023, the flutter test of aeroelastic model AE1 has been successfully completed at POLIMI’s Large Wind tunnel. Different velocities, angles of attack as well as chordwise positions of the strut- wing connection have been successfully tested. The identification phase has been carried out combining an air jet
May 2023 The aeroelastic wind tunnel model named AE1 represents a constant Froude scaled model of the strut-braced wing configuration including both wing and structure. It is conceived for the preliminary low speed flutter investigations and for a limited number of sensitivity analysis. The model has been conceived by ONERA, POLIMI and IBK, while
