The Coordinator of U-HARWARD was invited to present the project in a dedicated session to illustrate the winners of the 2020 THT calls. U-HARWARD project, in response to the call JTI-CS2-2019-CFP10-THT-07: Ultra-High Aspect ratio wings, will consider the use of innovative aerodynamic and aeroelastic designs in a multi-fidelity multi-disciplinary optimal design approach to facilitate the development of Ultra-High aspect ratio wings for medium and large transport aircraft. A conceptual design study, building on the current state of the art, will perform trade-off studies to determine the potential gains of different wing configurations, including strut-braced and folding wingtip wings, and loads alleviation concepts, in terms of aerodynamics, weight, noise, fuel-burn and range. Scaled model wind tunnel tests will be used to validate parametric variations in the aerodynamic and acoustic characteristics. Starting from a reference aircraft, the preliminary design of the best candidate configuration will be completed and the estimated gains validated using high fidelity tools and a larger scale aeroelastic test. The consortium is composed by six partners, i.e. Politecnico di Milano, the coordinator, IBK-Innovation GmbH & Co. KG, University of Bristol, Office National d’Etudes et de Recherches Aérospatiales, Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace and Siemens Industry Software SAS.
