Austrian Competences in Aeronautics Technology

AAC research

AAC provides research, development and engineering capabilities in materials and process technology. It operates an ESA-certified materials test house.The research is focused on polymer and inorganic composites and coatings, novel test and monitoring methods and materials and components testing especially in extreme environment (load, temperature, atmosphere)

Technologies and competences

Materials: Process modelling and verification of resin infusion, modification of curable resins, functionalisation of ceramic nano powders, coatings for improved thermal and wear resistance. Testing: Non destructive methods and Structural Health Monitoring, friction, wear, mechanics, fatigue, life cycle, extreme environments, microstructure (SEM, EBSD, FIB).
