Innovation highlighted in 70 strong Seminar Programme at Aerospace Testing, Design & Manufacturing Expo

Over 70 technical presentations will be given by industry experts over two days from leading OEMs, suppliers and research centres, at the Aerospace Testing, Design & Manufacturing Expo, being held 21-23 April in Munich by organisers, Reed Exhibitions.

"The technical seminar programme is a strong draw, with 39% of our visitors attending the programme during the three day event," says Show Director Jonathan Heastie. "Our research confirms that this free educational programme meets the expectations of 91% of our attendees, providing them with essential new ideas and techniques; knowledge which they can take back to their workplace to help them improve their operations."

This year the latest developments will be revealed in areas spanning Avionics, Testing Software, Telemetry and Data Acquisition, Metrology & Quality Assurance, NDT, Engine Testing, Materials & Composites Testing, Design and Pre-Production. The Programme is structured into three morning and afternoon parallel streams of up to five presentations addressing innovation within these key subject areas.

The opening morning of 21 April includes Avionics, Telemetry and NDT. In Avionics, Nicholas Lesellier of TechSAT will give a presentation on a new Mobile all-in-one AFDX/A350 test tool suite, based around a standard laptop, to meet the needs of AFDX testers for the A350 programme. The afternoon streams are Data Acquisition, Design and Testing Software. Highlights include a presentation on the introduction of LAN-XI as a new concept for data acquisition systems by Niels-Jørgen Jacobsen of, Brüel & Kjaer Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S and an exploration of how CAE-based structural optimization technology can be used to assist the design of composite structures by Altair Engineering's Pietro Cervellera. The Testing Software stream includes a discussion of the Acoustic Data Analysis used in Airbus France by ORME's Nicolas Verbeke.

The three morning streams on 22 April are Engine Testing, Flight Testing and Composites & Materials Testing. Dmitry Golentsov of CIAM will be examining electrostatic monitoring and active charge compensation; checking of spark plugs in aircraft engines and Stefan Hedlin of NEAT will be explaining the advantages of flight testing UAVs over land. The afternoon Metrology & Quality Assurance stream will feature MTU Aero Engines' Michael Zielinski dealing with BSSM, the noncontact blade vibration and tip clearance measurement system used by MTU. In Pre-Production the challenging problems regarding aging metal components will be addressed by Robert S. Skillen of VX Aerospace Corp in a presentation on re-engineering aging helicopter components using lightweight composite materials.
