Our activities on the theme of morphing, which consists of optimizing the shape and vibrational behaviour of aircraft using intelligent electroactive materials and advanced aerodynamic concepts, have proven the effectiveness of new designs of the aircraft wings of the future. Inspired by the multi-scale nature of the turbulence surrounding the wing of an aircraft and the movements of the wing, fins and feathers of large predatory birds, we have developed, in collaboration between the Institute of Fluid Mechanics in Toulouse and the Plasma and Energy Conversion Laboratory, the electroactive hybrid morphing and demonstrated the increase in aerodynamic performance on prototypes of the wind-powered wings in the www.smartwing.org/SMS/EU European Coordinate.
Free admission in the limit of available seats.
