The H2020 EXTREME Project: Composite Model Calibration for Impact Applications

Being a flagship project in the H2020 aviation programme implemented by INEA, the project EXTREME has pioneered experimental and numerical tools for the accurate and reliable design and manufacturing of aircraft composite structures under extreme dynamic loadings.


Novel material characterisation and in-situ measurement techniques, advanced multiscale simulation methods were developed to achieve a significant reduction of weight, design and certification cost, and environmental signature. The developed simulation tools lead to reduced physical testing by improving the accuracy of the predictions by 20%, and contributing to the reduction of the development costs by 10%. Advanced modelling algorithms were included in industrial software codes and novel optoelectronic devices were successfully commercialised up to TRL9.

EXTREME’s findings will allow lighter design of aeronautical structures in line with EU environmental goals set in FlighPath2050 and leading to a new “right at first time” design philosophy.
