Great documentary about the giant cargo plane BelugaXL: with “Megastructures: BelugaXL” the National Geographic Channel shows the successful story of an European project form the very vision to its maiden-flight. Deharde delivers the large 8x8 m super shells for the fuselage of the impressive airfreighter. See clip of the worth-seeing film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niFa23tnwpE .

International Exchange

Two Latvian students made an internship at Deharde

Taking part in the European “Erasmus-Program”, two Latvien students of the Riga State Technical School, division “Metal”, came to Germany for a 4-week-stay. During this time, they made an internship at Deharde for 2 weeks. Our training manager and one of our apprentice guided the two guests closely which turned out to be an inspiring experience for all. During their stay, the Latviens enhanced their professional as well as their intercultural skills. The high motivation of the trainees and the clear dedication of the Deharde staff led to a winning situation for both sides. Final review: a successful, positive experience and a great time!

80% time savings at tests in wind tunnels in cryogenic or high speed facilities

AIAA Scitech Conference, Orlando

At the AIAA Scitech Conference in Orlando, Boeing presented the results of a project for the development of Remote Control Actuation (RCA) in cryogenic wind tunnels. The project is a cooperation by Boeing, NASA, Deharde and the ETW, a company that operates a cryogenic wind tunnel to investigate the aerodynamic characteristics of airplanes.

Currently, the configuration changes cause expensive interruptions during each test phase especially under cryogenic and high speed conditions. The project aims to eliminate these interruptions and highly increase the efficiency of the test campaigns. Extreme cost saving is the direct result of the use of RCA.

For the project, Deharde built a new wing of a 787 half model with several remote-controlled control surfaces (spoiler and aileron). The results of the project was a successful use of RCA technology: up to 80% test time reduction could be achieved for tests under cryogenic and cruise conditions.

On the long term, the new RCA based technology shall be made standard for wind tunnel testing. This vision clearly has become closer to reality now. Due to this, the participants not only will continue their research work, but will also start to introduce the advantages of RCA technology to the industry and create surroundings to bring RCA into service on a standard basis.
