EVA Project: Development of Highly Accelerated Life Test to be applied in structural components
One of the most outstanding R&D&I initiatives is the EVA project, in which CATEC is working internally with the objective of introducing, developing and implementing HALT-HASS methodology in the processes of validation of aerospace structural components of composite, taking this technology further its current field of application.

The project, which is two years long and has a budget of 250.000 Euros, has been financed through the Regional Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Science as Application of Knowledge Project for 2010, with the support of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) and Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS), are outstanding methods for the detection and elimination of manufacturing defects, due to several reasons but need to be validated and developed and EVA is intended to answer this deficiency. These methods have positive impacts in the aeronautical sector since it saves time and costs when designing aerostructures

This project is being developed by the Materials and Processes Area under the responsibility of the Dr. Fernando Lasagni.
