ATTILA Project – Testing the complexity of a tiltrotor

The next generation of rotary-wing platforms is being developed to meet the challenges of civil mobility demands, providing increased speed, range and productivity to bridge the gap between conventional helicopters and fixed-wing platforms. The novelty and increased complexity of these platforms demand a great deal of testing. This is where the ATTILA project comes

ATTILA Project – Aeroelastic Tiltrotor Testbed in Action

An update on the ATTILA project as four weeks ago we published about the successful completion of dynamic characterization tests of the wind tunnel model. It's been a long road with many trials and a few errors, but in August the test team was finally able to see its aeroelastic tiltrotor testbed in action

Ground vibration test (GVT) of the ATTILA tiltrotor

Another milestone for the ATTILA project! The DLR-Institut für Aeroelastik from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Royal NLR recently completed a comprehensive ground vibration test (GVT) of the ATTILA tiltrotor wind tunnel model at the large low-speed facility (LLF) of DNW - German-Dutch Wind Tunnels. The GVTs are aimed at the dynamic

Alessandro Cocco successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis on tiltrotor aeroelasticity

We are all excited to share that Alessandro Cocco, who has been working at the multibody and coupled fluid-structure simulations of ATTILA for Politecnico di Milano since the beginning of the project, successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis cum laude on tiltrotor aeroelasticity. Alessandro made the best possible use of our multibody solver, MBDyn, and
