A new project led by the University of Southampton will explore the use of composites in aerostructures and seek to highlight the limitations in current certification procedures. Backed by an EPSRC grant of £6.9m, the research will focus on more structurally efficient and lightweight airframes. In doing so, the team hopes to challenge existing aerospace norms and seek step-changes that the regimented certification process may be preventing. By driving reduced weight, cost and development c...
