Description of the company Airbus is an international pioneer in the aerospace industry. We are a leader in designing, manufacturing and delivering aerospace products, services and solutions to customers on a global scale. We aim for a better-connected, safer and more prosperous world.
Situation The worldwide logistic system is based upon the utilization of standard ISO 8ft containers. Within the global aircraft logistic system it could be more cost effective if major components could be transported by standard 40ft ISO containers.
Problem No current fuselage panel elements are design to fit inside ISO standard 40ft.
Aims of the project Develop longitudinal junction for fuselage sections: Develop a set of industrial concepts to allow the manufacture of fuselage elements that fit inside standard 40ft ISO containers.
Scopes Longitudinal junction concept for the assembly of fuselage sections into a complete barrel. (Target aircraft geometry should be the A320)
Concept to quickly junction the longitudinal joint of the skins.
Solution to join the frame elements
Target group (students) Students with an engineering background
