PROJECT ACRONYM: “EINSTAIN”
Title: Engine INSTallation And INtegration
Call Reference: CS2-CFP01-2014-01
Topic Title : JTI-CS2-2014-CFP01-ENG-04-04 Engine Installation Optimization
Grant Agreement number: 687132
Start Date: 1 January 2016
Planned project duration: 60 months
The general objective of EINSTAIN project is to demonstrate the feasibility of an efficient “diesel” engine installation on a FAR/EASA Part23, 9 to 11 seats twin engine aircraft configuration and reduce as much as possible the related increase in drag, respect to a conventional engine, by using Computational Fluid Dynamics in the design phase.
In order to achieve this goal the SR460, a six-cylinders, air/oil-cooled turbo-diesel engine produced by SMA, will be used as reference and installed on the TECNAM P2012 TRAVELLER aircraft.
With the introduction of SMA SR460 program, the scenario is completely opened to the P2012 variant powered by heavy fuels and all related advantages are reported as following:

Topic Identification Code: JTI-CS2-CPW01-REG-01-02
Topic Title : Advanced wing for regional A/C
Proposal Number: 671420
Start Date: 1 October 2015
Planned project duration: 84 months
The Project aims at developing and demonstrating, in relevant environment, innovative concepts and methodologies, enabling the realization of a wing of new generation. Key aspects of this wing will be:
the innovative structure, result of an improved life cycle design
the adaptivity, enabling load control and alleviation strategies and enhancing the aerodynamic performance at the different flight regimes
the innovative aerodynamic design, oriented to natural laminar flow preservation and drag reduction
complementary activities key aspects:
electromechanical actuation system oriented to reduce envelope and weight, improve reliability, increase safety margins
increase aircraft safety and reduce aircraft development costs by improving certification process of turboprop in icing conditions
advanced design of ribs and hinges according to innovative process technologies
