Advanced Control Design: Advanced Control design for load reduction, Advanced supervisory control design and Fault management working under dam. cond.
Advanced Materials: selection of hybrid composite configuration and experimental testing (both static and dynamic) on samples of the selected configuration.
Modelling, Co-simulation and Fatigue: flexible multibody modelling and simulation, stress recovery and Fatigue behaviour evaluation.
The main goal is to test and validate the control strategies in term of efficiency in responding to variable speed and capability to relieve dynamic loads.
Development of advanced techniques for damage detection using phased-array UT and SMArt thermography – experimental fatigue test with embedded sensors.
Co-ordination of technical activities and dissemination of results.
