CFRP Fuselage comprises concepts for future aircraft fuselages, mainly based on carbon fibre composites. Special emphasis is placed upon the detailed design of large cut-outs, i.e. for the passenger and cargo doors. The major challenge is to reduce the weight of the primary fuselage structure at same or better safety as the predecessor but at lower costs. Different improved materials, designs and manufacturing processes will be developed, analysed, simulated and tested. The DLR project “CFRP Fuselage Next Generation” brings together all research topics. One demonstrator which is in production now will demonstrate improved impact resistance, integrated fire safety, new 3D stringers, and integral high performance hybrid Steel-CFRP connections. Technologies especially developed for high production rates at low recurring costs like inductive preforming and microwave resin heating will be enhanced. Experts from all Institute departments and partner institutes are working closely together to achieve a safer, more comfortable and highly efficient aircraft.
