TsAGI offers to protect elements of mesh composite structures
Within Gidroaviasalon 2014 a general meeting of members of the six-month EU-Russia joint project «PoLaRBEAR» (Production and Analysis Evolution For Lattice Related Barrel Elements Under Operations With Advanced Robustness) of the 7th European Framework Programme was held.
In this project, TsAGI acts as coordinator of the Russian side.
During the meeting, Russian and European participants presented the interim results and agreed on plans for further work, the press service of TsAGI informed. Project «PoLaRBEAR» is the actual continuation of the project «ALaSCA», devoted to the development of composite fuselage structures on the basis of net construction-power circuits. The success of the project «ALaSCA» became an essential foundation for further research within the project «PoLaRBEAR», which deals with the issues of long-term strength and durability of advanced mesh designs.
