SARISTU (Smart Intelligent Aircraft Structures) is a Level 2 large-scale integrating project, partially funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme.

Coordinated by AIRBUS, the SARISTU Consortium brings together 64 partners from 16 European countries. The 4-year running project (09/2011 to 08/2015) has a budget of appr. 51M€.

Project Description

The concept of Smart Intelligent Aircraft Structures is not limited to any individual aircraft programme or aircraft component, hence it develops both wing and fuselage applications. Moreover, the project focuses on integration activities in three distinct technological areas: airfoil morphing, self-sensing and multifunctional structures through the use of nanoreinforced resins. For the first time ever in smart material concepts, SARISTU offers the opportunity to physically assess the combinations of different technological solutions and their combined effect at full aircraft level. Morphing technologies, which already have significant capabilities on their own, may only be implemented in production aircraft if combined with further functionalities such as de-icing, independent shape assessment and, if used for active aeroelastic tailoring, wingbox strain assessment as offered by Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) techniques. Nanoreinforced resins used for damage tolerance improvements on the other hand, may be combined with damage detecting capabilities affecting design allowable to further increase potential weight savings.

Objectives

SARISTU main objective is to achieve significant improvements in aircraft total weight, aircraft availability, manufacturing cost and, above all, operational cost. Furthermore, it aims at decreasing airframe generated noise -up to 6Db(A)- and hence reducing the impact of air traffic noise in the vicinity of airports. In addition, morphing technology integration on a typical outboard wing is expected to achieve a total additional fuel consumption reduction of 6%, with a positive effect on fuel consumption and required take-off fuel load. Another important goal is to achieve operational cost reductions regarding structure inspection up to 1%, as well as Electrical Structure Network installation cost reductions up to 15%. Finally, the feasibility of combining Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) with nanoreinforced resins for Damage Tolerance improvement is expected to lead to weight savings of up to 3%.
