Project Objectives and main Results

The ARROW project aims at developing a numerical methodology and a CAE tool (hereafter referred as “ALEEN-L Modelling Tool”) suited to model user defined cable-harness configurations installed aboard an aircraft made of composite and conductive materials, equipped with an Almost Equipotential Electrical Network.

In particular the ALEEN-L Tool has to be suited to evaluate the Voc(t) and Isc(t) waveforms (Voc=Open Circuit voltage; Isc=Short Circuit current) at equipment loads, induced by lightning strikes on the aircraft, in order to allow the verification of their compatibility with the design and qualification values.


Here below the main Expected Results:
