The goal of the REDISH project is the development and maturation of innovative shielding able to sustain impacts from high and low energy debris caused by Counter-Rotative Open Rotor (CROR) engine burst. A coupled experimental-numerical development approach at two structural scales (laminate/panel and component) is proposed that starts from a large pool of possible configurations that will be down selected in successive analysis steps of increasing detail. Virtual testing by means of high-fidelity simulation tools developed by the consortium will be used to decrease the need for costly physical testing as much as possible and accelerate the shielding development process. The specimens to be manufactured and tested are the ones strictly necessary to validate the numerical simulations and assure the highest educated selection of the actual solution to be implemented for CROR Engine Debris Impact Shielding.
The REDISH project will run from January 2016 to June 2018.
