ONGOING ACTIVITIES

  • Refinement of cabin safety numerical models based on drop test campaign on specimens including subfloor, seta and anthopomorhic dummy.
  • Design of structures minimising the bird impact damage, based on FE analysis and gas gun shots; characterisation of suitable ballistic gel for future use in experimental testing in place of bird cadavers.
  • Use of hybrid models, based on mixed finite element and lumped mass parts, for the analysis of large rotorcraft sections including cabin, subfloor, seats and anthropomorphic devices; optimisation of energy absorption mechanical parameters, aimed at injury risk minimisation, by fast analysis techniques.
  • Use of human total body models for the study of injury criteria and comparison with anthropomorphic test dummy based criteria.

FUTURE PLANS

  • Improvement of bird strike modelling technique.
  • Co-operation with industrial partner for the refinement of an innovative helicopter crashworthy seat, finalised to EASA certification.
  • Study of new constitutive laws for Al alloys for a better finite element analysis of fracture propagation.
  • Experimental testing and finite element modelling of riveted junctions in static and dynamic conditions.
  • Experimental testing and finite element modelling of chiral structures in static and dynamic conditions, aimed at crash energy absorption.
  • Application of optimisation strategies to numerical models (hybrid and lumped masses) of more extended rotorcraft sections, including the three main energy absorbing stages of seat, subfloor and landing gear.
