Objectives

The main objective of Genial can be summarized as:

To have available a numerical methodology and a SW tool to model the current networks installed aboard composite aircrafts.

Five expected results will lead to the achievement of the project objective:

  1. Definition of an accurate and effective 3D numerical modelling methodology applicable to any ALEEN configuration installed aboard composite aircrafts, including any structural parts of the aircraft (e.g. parts of the body, rails used to fix passengers seats etc.), at least in the frequency range DC-100 kHz
  2. Development of a numerical code (hereafter referred to as the “computational module”) implementing the above mentioned modelling methodology
  3. Development of a SW module implementing a set of pre-processing functions to input the modelling data (CAD models, material properties, EWIS configuration, measured data,…) and to prepare the electromagnetic model (generally referred to as “meshing functions”) to be evaluated by the ER1 code
  4. Development of a SW module implementing a set of post-processing functions that will act on the data provided by the computational module (i.e. ALEEN impedance matrix); in particular, development of an interface between this matrix and an electrical design database to provide the impedance between 2 interconnection points of the EWIS
  5. Consistency verification with respect to data measured on the SGO WP Leader mock-up

The five main outputs of the project will be:

  1. Technical Note describing the modelling methodology
  2. Modelling tool
  3. User manual for each modelling module
  4. Validation Report
  5. Modelling data (input and results) relevant to basic tests and to the SGO mock-up
