Abstract

With the aim of reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, the CS2 HLFC on HTP project is investigating the replacement of a conventional leading edge on the horizontal tailplane of an Airbus A350 with a leading edge equipped with an active HLFC system. By extracting a part of the boundary layer through a perforated titanium outer skin, the laminar flow is stabilised and thus the aerodynamic drag is reduced. In order to prevent laminar-turbulent transition of the boundary layer behind the suction area at the leading edge, tight tolerances for gaps and steps must be maintained at the interface to the HTP box. With state-of-the-art technology, gaps between the components are closed with a filling compound. This is a time-consuming process and compliance with the exact geometry is not guaranteed due to the strong thermal expansion of the filler. Also, the bolt heads of the structural connection can disturb the laminar flow. A design concept is presented for the attachment of the leading edge to the HTP box, covering the bolts and the gap between the leading edge and the skin of the HTP box with a pre-curved steel foil, which is bonded onto the titanium leading edge skin after the leading edge has been assembled. This ensures both the accessibility of the fastening elements in the case of a necessary replacement if damage has occurred, as well as complying with the aerodynamic requirements
