Smart Morphing & Sensing for aeronautical configurations
EU: H2020-MG-1.1.2016: 2017-2020
The Smart Morphing & Sensing (SMS) project is a multi-disciplinary upstream project that employs intelligent electro-active actuators that will modify the lifting structure of an aircraft and to obtain the optimum shape with respect to the aerodynamic performance (high lift & low drag). This will be accomplished using a new generation of fiber optics based sensors allowing distributed pressure measurements and in-situ real-time optimisation of the aerodynamic characteristics. This will allow to attenuation of flow separation and nuisance instabilities such as aileron flutter and also to reduce trailing-edge noise and other vibration sources in flight, coming from interactions between wing and fuselage and engine or from critical meteorological phenomena as gusts, having major impact on safety. The SMS project associates the following methods that will be coupled in a multi-disciplinary environment:
- Advanced integrated aeroelastic design using High-Fidelity CFDSM (Computational Fluid Dynamics-Structural Mechanics)
- Advanced distributed sensing using a new generation of high-fidelity fiber optics sensors
- Advanced experimental techniques to provide data together with the high-fidelity simulations for the iterative feedback of the controller design to be used for the optimisation of the morphing flap of an A320 type wing. These experimental techniques will also be used as a basis for the validation of both the novel actuation and sensing systems via wind tunnel tests at subsonic (take-off and landing) and transonic (cruise) speeds.
- Controller Design by appropriate Flight Control Commands (FCC), to actuate the electro-active materials properties in order to enable a real-time in-situ optimisation of the final prototypes in reduced scale and large scale.
- The SMS project is unique thanks to its strong multidisciplinary character and degree of innovation.

Improve cooperation along the wood value chain through knowledge-based methods and mobile applications
BMEL: Bio energy - 2013-2015
The aim of the Wood Apps project is to develop a pilot solution of an information and communication service platform for connecting the partner of an international value chain from forest to factory.
The IT-based standard description of partner profiles, resources, materials and products such as the knowledge-based methods and algorithms improve partner communication and the exchange of relevant information. The use of mobile communications systems in the value chain supports a direct use of the communication platform in mobile- and outdoor use.
Intermodal Transport Routing Information System
As part of IMOTRIS an automated Intermodal Transport Routing Information System is developed. In this optimal routes for goods / Gutarten considering capacity, availability, speed, price, and environmental aspects are automatically calculated and offered.
Automated timber measurement
BioStruct is a large joint research project, which is funded by the European Commission. The aim of the project is to develop the next generation of wood and cellulose fiber-reinforced composites -. So-called "enhanced wood-plastic composites (eWPCs)
As part of GNSS-INDOOR are various technologies for positioning and navigation in different types of buildings and their direct environment extensively studied, tested and demon-strated. The focus is on different system architectures for logistics, security and mass-market applications.
The aim of the project is the development of methods for exchanging structured digital information by means of a system and location-independent information platform (EIP).
The main goal of this project is the creation of innovative tools for the product development (virtual reality, tele co-operation, simulation) and its integration and introduction in the ship building industry.
