 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'With aging engines and the increase of air traffic in the next 20 years, a central challenge in the aeronautical industry will concern the increase of the efficiency of maintenance which still represents around 20% of an operator’s indirect operating costs. This challenge is particularly important for metallic parts within the engine aircraft industry, because of the criticity of rotative components and the high temperature environment. Maintenance is directly related to the concept of Probability of Detection (POD) curves which are obtained by expensive experimental campaigns. Within the PICASSO project, we propose to evaluate the concept of using Non Destructive Testing low cost simulations to obtain Probability of Detection (POD) curves. The aim of PICASSO is therefore to build a new and original way to get simulation supported POD curves and to establish basis and recommendations for a future European standard for Qualification and Reliability of inspection for aircraft industry. The main economic impacts will be to ensure savings in costs concerning aircraft maintenance and engine development, improvements of time maintenance and elimination of unscheduled maintenance.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Advances in software and simulation technology are empowering aeronautics manufacturers to lower the costs of testing for structural safety.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

An ongoing drive to increase safety in the aeronautics industry has the potential to save lives and maintain Europe's position as a pioneer in the industry. In principle, aeronautical components are designed based on the damage tolerance concept, which requires very accurate knowledge on fracture resistance and crack growth rate, among other crucial indications.

One new high-tech approach in this direction embraces the introduction of simulation-supported probability of detection (POD) and non-destructive testing (NDT) simulation. In this context, the EU-funded project 'Improved reliability inspection of aeronautic structure through simulation supported POD' (PICASSO) built powerful new NDT software to detect structural flaws of components more efficiently.

In more specific terms, the project team worked on advanced ways to determine the curve that calculates the probability to detect defects (probability vs. defect size). This generally requires complicated and costly POD procedures, an issue that PICASSO has overcome using novel NDT simulation tools, to yield less costly and more reliable POD determinations.

To achieve its aims, the project team characterised defects and described components in question. It employed three-dimensional (3D) tools and computer-assisted design (CAD) technology to create the NDT software, integrating a modelling strategy for uncertainties and validating their observations through simulation runs. Results of the project so far have been the successful validation of simulation supported POD, including implementation strategy and involved methodology. This advanced technology is expected to contribute to the European standard in testing damage tolerance and advancing safety. The end results will be increased safety for passengers and crew, as well as a stronger and more competitive industry.
