CHAIRE CEDAR

The Chaire CEDAR, a response to environmental issues in the aeronautics sector.

CHAIR FOR ECO DESIGN OF AIRCRAFT

Signed: October 2013
Renewed: June 2019
Duration: 5 years

Chaire CEDAR

In 2013, ISAE-SUPAERO and Airbus created the CEDAR Chair "Chair for Eco-Design of Aircraft". This 5-year chair aimed to define disruptive concepts in air transport by introducing, from the start of the design, innovative technologies. In 2019, they renewed their partnership and adopted the main learnings of previous years all while integrating a more comprehensive environmental engineering approach. The CEDAR Chair thus participates in raising awareness and training future aeronautical engineers in the sustainable development of air transport.

The chair is made up of 4 major programs:

• ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING CERTIFICATE Offered to 3rd year students, the certificate focuses on the issues of sustainable development, offers an approach to aircraft design over the entire product life cycle, addresses eco-mobility and the economics of air transport. Since the certificate began, more than 95 students have been made aware of Eco Design.

• INTERNATIONAL EXCELLENCE SCHOLARSHIPS : The objective of the "International Excellence Scholarships" program is to attract and select foreign students of the best international level to join ISAE-SUPAERO training programs dedicated to aircraft design. Within the framework of the CEDAR 2 Chair, scholarships will no longer only be open to foreign students entering the Master Aerospace Engineering degree but also to those in the French Engineering program.

• AIRCRAFT DESIGN STUDENT PROJECT PORTFOLIO This interdisciplinary program of student projects, derives from concrete industrial cases around the theme of the Chair and focuses on the field of “Future Aircraft Design”. Each year, around twenty students participate, alone or in groups, in these projects whose length varies between 2 and 12 months. These projects revolve around 3 major orientations: design conception, technologies and operations.

• RESEARCH : One of the priorities of the Research component consists of proposing technological developments that will improve the implementation of air transport solutions, making it possible to reduce our global ecological footprint. Two large projects are currently underway and are continuing with CEDAR2. The first is the flying wing BWB (Blended Wing Body), i.e. with an integrated fuselage, the second project is a distributed propeller plane. It consists of a canopy on which eight small engines are arranged.

AIRBUS IN BRIEF

Airbus, one of the world’s leading aircraft manufacturers, offers the most modern and comprehensive product line in the 100 to 500 seats civil aircraft market. Airbus, a pioneer in innovative technologies, offers some of the quietest and most fuel-efficient aircrafts in the world. Airbus, headquartered in Toulouse, brings together aeronautical, space and military activities.



ZOOM ON THE RESEARCH WORK

PREMIER VOL RÉUSSI POUR LA MAQUETTE D’AÉRONEF À PROPULSION DISTRIBUÉE

Le jeudi 3 octobre sur l’aérodrome de Revel (31), le démonstrateur à propulsion distribuée développé dans le cadre de la chaire CEDAR, par les équipes d’essais du DCAS et DISC, a effectué son premier vol et vérifié en conditions réelles ses systèmes embarqués et ses caractéristiques de vol.

TRAVAUX DE RECHERCHE CHAIRE CEDAR – ZOOM SUR LA THÈSE DE ALESSANDRO SGUEGLIA

La Chaire CEDAR (Chaire for Eco-Design of AiRcraft) menée en partenariat avec AIRBUS a pour objectif d’apporter une réponse aux problématiques environnementales du secteur aéronautique en définissant des concepts disruptifs du transport aérien grâce à l’introduction, dès la conception de l’avion, de technologies innovantes. Dans ce cadre de nombreux travaux de recherche sont menés au sein de l’ISAE-SUPAERO et chaque année de nombreux doctorants travaillent sur ces problématiques. Interview d’Alessandro SGUEGLIA PhD, Ingénieur en Propulsion électrique chez AURA-AERO, ancien doctorant qui a réalisé sa thèse en 2019.
