Important results from the project

This project aims to create improved opportunities for collaboration between industry and academia in the study of new aircraft concepts. This includes creating and improving communication between the parties involved and partly trying out the various work steps in the development process. The goal has been to create reference data on an existing concept for upcoming projects and to show proof-of-concept for fast manufacture of a wind tunnel model.

Expected long term effects

In the project, numerical calculations were performed on the existing geometry of the radio controlled aircraft, called GFF, available at LIU. In addition, a simplified wind tunnel model has been produced where 3D printing has largely been used. An initial design study of the main wing with a new planform has also been carried out. The expected effect is that the prerequisites for an upcoming research study are now in place and that the work with this will be more effective than if the preparations had not been carried out.

Approach and implementation

The organization and execution of the project has been to initially share, at LIU, existing geometry of the GFF demonstrator with all other project partners. After this, Saab has performed the part that deals with numerical calculations and wing design, KTH has shown the possibilities for quick design of a wind tunnel model and LIU has been responsible for the flying GFF demonstrator regarding how new technology could be implemented into this demonstrator.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
