Fundamentals of High Lift for Future Civil Aircraft

The Coordinated Research Centre 88o develops the fundamentals of active high-lift for environmentally friendly future transport aircraft.

The research is motivated by growing demands for air travel in economic zones like Europe. Sustainable growth can only be achieved here by using new means of transport, which enable efficient point-to-point connections, short runways for take-off and landing, drastic reductions of aircraft noise, and low fuel consumption. This requires fundamental research in aeroacoustics, in methodology for efficient active high-lift, and in flight dynamics.
