CH-47 Chinook under floor frame

Under floor frames of CH-47 Chinook were investigated, and topology optimized by Boeing and NCDMM (link). Possibility of using monolithic “one-piece machining” structures, which is an increasing trend in aviation and topology optimization of such structures were  studied. Ramp downs in the ribs … Continue reading
