Abstract

Tokyo Metropolitan University (TMU) and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) are investigating advanced composite structures and smart technology for the next generation aircraft. This project aims to educate the Asian students, and research on advanced aircraft technology. Manufacturing and structural test of the partial composite wing program is major topic of our research project. This partial composite wing program includes demonstration of materials, manufacturing technologies, and measurement techniques. A half wing span composite wing structure was designed to evaluate the novel technology for the next generation single aisle transport aircraft. Then 5m long Partial Composite Wing Structure (PCWS) was designed to demonstrate the full scale fabrication, assembly and structural test.
