Research summary

Design of a three-dimensional camber morphing composite wing using the Fishbone Active Camber (FishBAC) concept.  

Traditional fixed wing aircraft (i.e. commercial airliners) are usually designed, aerodynamically, for optimal performance at one specific cruise condition. As consequence, the performance of aircraft at flight stages and scenarios that do not occur at cruise condition (e.g. takeoff, climb, landing, unexpected gust, etc.) is far from optimal. This results in lower profit margins for airlines due to fuel consumption and noise, as well as higher emissions, per distance travelled, of carbon dioxide (CO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), among others greenhouse gases ...
