The Workshop on EC FP6 NACRE Project held in France
The Workshop on EC FP6 NACRE (New Aircraft Concepts REsearch) Project was held in France July 21−25. Workshop participants considered the final stage of experiments on NACRE WP3.2.3 that would be performed in Faustovo under the coordination of TsAGI.
The NACRE project is targeted at three advanced airliners concept studies:
eco-aircraftwith reduced noise and emissions;
long-haulSimple Flying Bus.
Four major project partners contributed to the Workshop: Airbus, TsAGI,
The Workshop enabled the conclusive and the most complicated phase of joint experimental activities on modeling the impact of rotating fragments and tested structural components. The experimental and theoretical research on this issue is planned to be completed in April 2010.
