Patented technology developed by leading researchers in the Department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London. A smart core fabricated from many layers of piezoceramic material, forming a honeycomb structure. Actuation of the walls, which can be performed independently for each cell, will morph the core shape. This enables, for example, an aircraft wing to change shape to match optimal conditions during flight.
Technology developed by fluid mechanics experts at Imperial College London. Fractal grids incorporated into blade design generates high turbulence intensities with low pressure drop, yielding energy efficiency improvements of up to 15% in laboratory testing.
Imperial College London Engineers have developed innovative driveline technology in novel series and parallel arrangements, reducing complexity, weight and volume and providing approx. 40% cost savings in the powetrain.
