Sanad R&D Project

Call: FP7-PEOPLE-2012-IAPP

Synthesis of Advanced top Nano-coatings with improved Aerodynamic and De-icing behaviour

Project Number: 324443


The efficiency of modern transportation is severely compromised by the prevalence of turbulent drag and icing. The high level of turbulent skin-friction occurring, e.g. on the surface of an aircraft, is responsible for excess fuel consumption and increased carbon emissions.

The environmental, political, and economic pressure to improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions associated with transportation means that reducing turbulent skin-friction drag is a pressing engineering problem. SANAD will tackle this problem with the development of superhydrophobic nanostructured top aircraft coatings, which do not only exhibit improved aerodynamic efficiency but at the same time they prevent icing on the aircraft.
