LuFo V-3 Project LoCaRe
Title: Localisation and Characterisation of Flight Relevant Noise Sources on High Lift Systems &
Innovative Experimental Investigations on Natural Laminar Flow Control at Flight Reynolds numbers
Leader: ETW GmbH, Partners: DLR e.V., Embraer
The LuFo research project LoCaRe was based on an established and successful cooperation between ETW, DLR and Embraer. It sustainably improved the capabilities of ETW and DLR to support the development of particularly low-noise and fuel-efficient aircraft.
On the one hand, ETW was enabled to contribute to localising sources of noise that occur during take-off and landing on high lift systems at an early stage of development. DLR provided the measurement methodology and investigate the physics of typically occurring phenomena, and Embraer compared the results with its own flight test data, evaluate and confirmed the methodology. On the other hand, ETW and DLR expanded the technical and methodological basis for efficiently and effectively supporting the development and application of future low-drag laminar wings. Embraer validated the new methods by using a research configuration as a sample application.
In both areas, the cooperation with Embraer not only contributed toward further development of the capabilities at ETW and DLR, but also established them for application in aircraft research and development (R&D). LoCaRe increased the competitiveness of ETW and DLR and strengthened R&D capabilities in Germany, which are valuable and required to enable sustainable aviation.
