The SARAH timeline is updated with the progress of WP4!!!

From the beginning of the project important technical work has been performed within WP4.  

In particular, from October 2016 (M1) till May 2017 (M8), the following achievements have been realized: 

  • In regards to local solutions, partners have started working and are setting up models/ analysis environment. Also, concepts are prepared for local components.
  • In regards to the global solutions, a model of BWB was generated by TUBS and provided to IBK. The model was implemented into DFTS-Tool and simulated using ditch-code as-is. The related results are currently analysed and the upgrade needs for DFTS/ ditch-tool are under review and in discussion with TUHH.
  • The methods used to create the ditch-model and simulate water impact are the following:
    • The Ditch-Code, which was developed by TUHH to simulate loads created during water impact of aircrafts, is able to perform simulation of the ditching event in time, taking into account the A/C geometry, mass-distribution and approach conditions.
    • The DFTS (Ditch/ Floatation Tool Suite), which was developed by IBK as pre-/ post-processing tool around ditch-code, enables the user to create ditch-models more efficiently, providing comparisons and visualisation of model and results.
  • The BWB Model was created and supplied by TUBS
  • The first ditching model was created and simulated by IBK: Results show expected behaviour
