CEN/WS 98 – Bionic Aircraft – ALM technology and bionic design  

The CEN Workshop is proposed by the BIONIC AIRCRAFT consortium. This research project is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 Programme. The proposers of the CEN Workshop are UNE and FRAUNHOFER IAPT, who is the coordinator in BIONIC AIRCRAFT. They specifically work on activities related to ALM technology at the process and material level through the development of novel component designs and system technologies to factory planning and digitization, for the purpose of aircraft manufacturing.

The CEN/WS intends to develop a CWA (CEN Workshop Agreement) on agreed well-defined specifications for:

Optimized ALM support structures made from AL alloys
Quality control of metal ALM parts using the Ultrasonic technique

Results of the research carried out so far by the BIONIC AIRCRAFT consortium will be transferred to the proposed CEN Workshop Agreements to disseminate these results to stakeholders.

The kick-off meeting will be held on 9th April 2019 in Brussels, CCMC premises (Rue de la Science, 23 - 1010 Brussels, Belgium).

All interested parties are invited to submit comments on the draft Project Plan to Workshop Secretary, Mr Francisco Luis Arribas Martin ( farribas@une.org ) by 2nd April 2019.

The final deliverable of this Workshop (CEN/CWA) is expected to be finalized in 2019.
