NICETRIP - Novel Innovative Competitive Effective Tilt Rotor Integrated Project

Contract Number 030944

6th FP European Research Project.

The research contribution from "Dipartimento di Ingegneria Aerospaziale" of "Politecnico di Milano" spans the entire project, from numerical analysis of aerodynamics, flight mechanics, aeroelasticity, structural dynamics, to wind-tunnel testing. MBDyn is used in the aeroservoelastic and structural dynamics analysis of up to the full-span tiltrotor.

Current POLIMI tasks involve:

MBDyn semispan model of the ERICA concept

The sizing of the tail is performed by Luca Cavagna and Giuseppe Quaranta using NeoCASS, a tool developed by POLIMI within the SimSAC project. Professor Sergio Ricci is POLIMI's coordinator of SimSAC.

NeoCASS conceptual model of the ERICA concept

Points of contact are Professor Marco Borri (POLIMI coordinator); Dr. Pierangelo Masarati (responsible for dynamics related tasks) and Dr. Giuseppe Quaranta, for aeroservoelasticity and structural dynamics.
