Strona: Scientific and research offer / Dept of Aerospace Engineering

Scientific and research offer

The Department of Aerospace Engineering can provide services and conduct research in the following areas of science:

  • Scanning spatial elements and creating their numerical models (using the ATOS white light scanner) with processing to CAD formats (IGES / STEP)
  • Conducting research related to digital image correlation (using the ARAMIS system)
  • Determination of the deformation distribution in elements made of or covered with a material with birefringent properties (using the Vishay elasto-optic test kit)
  • Determination of impact toughness using the Charpy method (taking into account the influence of temperature on the impact toughness)
  • Rockwell, Brinell and Vickers hardness measurement
  • Determination of strength data for plastics, composites, metals and alloys (using universal testing machine Zwick/Roell ProLine Z050)
  • Fatigue tests of thin-walled structures
  • Fatigue tests and observation of the development of fatigue cracks in elements working in the field of resonant vibrations
  • Fatigue tests of airframe components (wing, tail, fuselage)
  • Strength tests of aircraft structures (including complete aircraft airframes with a wingspan of up to 18 m)
  • Determination of the strain value using bonded wire strain gauges (HBM tensometric bridges) and optical strain gauges (fibers with Bragg grating)
  • Rapid prototyping of selected elements of aircraft structures using 3D printing (for model tests)
