Airbus to collaborate with Dutch partners on advanced thermoplastics

  • 01-May-2009 04:20 EDT
Airbus and the Dutch aerospace industry signed an extension to their memorandum of understanding for strategic cooperation in research and technology (R&T) in place since 2005, and initiated a specific collaboration agreement on advanced thermoplastic composites. The collaboration project will demonstrate the design techniques, manufacturing, and assembly processes of continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastics to show the applicability of the material to large primary aircraft structures. The project will be an integral part of the Airbus R&T strategy and will involve Dutch private-sector participants as well as research institutes and universities.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
