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.
