Transcript of Copy of The Design and Manufacturing of Airplane Wings

Based on The Natural Flow Wing-Design Concept / Richard M. Wood
and Steven X.S. Bauer. Wing Design: Five types of stress affect airplane wings: 1. Tension
2. Compression
3. Torsion
4. Shear
5. Bending Increased drag = Higher compression and shear forces http://etc.usf.edu Wings are subjected to bending stresses in flight Shear, tensile, and compression stresses in bolts, rivets and spars. Longer wings are subjected to higher bending stresses Other factors such as aerial maneuvers, sudden wind gusts, and hard landings can increase the stresses on the wings. http://bayourenaissanceman.blogspot.com/ RAAF F-111 wing displacement of 7 feet under 7.33g force Aluminum Criteria:
Materials need to be lightweight
Strong and resistant to stress in flight
Durable for extended use Aerospace Aluminum, Al 7075
has a comparable strength to other metals
corrosion resistance
cost effective for manufacturers http://www.makeitfrom.com/material-data/?for=7075-AlZn5.5MgCu-Aluminum Boeing 787 vs. Boeing 777 Composites: engineered material made from fibers of more than one kind

More resistant to tension than to compressive forces

Commonly used near fuselages to reduce maintenance for tension

Average 20% in weight savings http://www.boeing.com/commercial/aeromagazine/articles/qtr_4_06/article_04_2.html Composite Materials vs. Aluminum Alloy Boeing 787 Airbus 380 Wing Failure By January 2012, Type 1 cracks were found in almost all of the first 20 A380s in service.

In February 2012, more serious Type 2 cracks were found in 2 Qantas A380s.

European Aviation Safety Agency ordered all 67 A380s in service to be inspected. How it happened: Composite aluminum bracket: Airbus engineers used 7449 Aluminum for brackets.
Reduced weight of aircraft by 300kg Wing area: 9000 square ft, large enough to park 70 cars

Total weight of aircraft: 300,000 kg.

2000 brackets used to attach each wing exterior to wing ribcage Type 1 cracks in bolt hole: Around 2 cm in length
First discovered on Nov. 4th, 2010 in Singapore Type 2 cracks in rib feet: Forced airlines to inspect all 67 A380s in service Proposed solution: Retrofit all A380s in service
Replace 23 hybrid ribs with ribs of 7010 aluminum
Redesign and replace rib feet
Fix will be available in 2013
Estimated cost: Upwards of 500 million euro http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Titan-crystal_bar.JPG Materials http://www.matter.org.uk/matscicdrom/manual/co.html Different steps aimed at establishing at first a standard model and then modifying that model based on changes in different parameters. Take home? 1) Preliminary design: establish base-line standard wing
2) Initial design: aerodynamics characteristics of baseline wings and modified airfoil thickness
3) Final design: best wing configurations of initial designs and wing asymmetries. 3 Design Steps Major Principle:
To take maximum advantage of naturally occurring flow fields and the resultant pressure distribution.
In practice?
Lower surface geometry to have as large of an area as possible Design Philosophy Using Euler’s analysis: different predictions of lift and drag are generated corresponding to different asymmetries

Modified thickness

Combination of different
modifications/finalization Final Design Variations in airfoil thickness

Variations in max thickness

Airfoil symmetry from
0 to 90 reduces drag Initial Design Zero-lift wave drag assumed
Determine angle of wing
Near-conical geometry Preliminary Design 1) Manufacture Components

2) Assembly of Structural Components

3) Addition of Other Components Airplane manufacturing over the years... Parts of the Wing Manufacturing the Parts Creep Forming A380 has 25,500 parts from over 50 manufacturers Automated machining cell for stringers - 200 km per year Milling machines produce the skins New "strip milling" heat and pressure stress material into desired shape Template -> Vacuum Packing -> Autoclave Wing Testing Why are wings tested? Assembly of Parts Separate components are brought together
Rivets and bolts to fasten them
750,000 fasteners on the A380
