Swedish and European research collaboration in simulation supported POD
Paper in proceedings, 2013
This paper summarizes the main contributions
from GKN Aerospace Engine Systems (GKN)
and Chalmers University of Technology within
the European collaboration project PICASSO.
PICASSO is a recently finished research project
within the 7th European framework programme.
The project goal was to develop mathematical
models and methodologies in order to carry out
capability estimations of non-destructive testing
procedures regarding their probability to detect
defects of various sizes. Mathematical models
were developed and successfully validated
against representative experimental cases.
This paper starts with a description of the
overall objectives of the project and describes
the Swedish collaboration. We will then go
through the main results, conclusions and
finally discuss the continuation of GKN and
Chalmers research within the 6th Swedish
National Aeronautical Research Programme.
