HIT09 IS PARTNER IN NEXTTRIP, EU RESEARCH PROJECT IN THE FRAMEWORK OF CLEAN SKY 2
HIT09 is partner in NEXTTRIP, EU funded research project in the framework of Clean Sky 2 (https://www.cleansky.eu/).
The objective of the research project, started on 1st March 2018, and carried out in collaboration with NLR, DLR, DNW and Fokker, is twofold. On one hand, the aerodynamic configuration of Next Generation Civil TiltRotor will be assessed through wind tunnel tests on a large scale powered model with the aim of verifying the architectural key choices and providing guidelines for potential additional improvements. On the other hand, the empennage configuration will be optimized for enhanced aircraft stability using a multi-objective, multi-point aerodynamic optimization platform coupled with CFD.
