Airbus has contracted The CT Engineering Group to provide it with Nacelle Stress Engineering Activities for the next three years.
CT Ingenierie, the French branch of The CT Engineering Group, explains that it will continue to support Airbus with the following aircrafts: A300, A320, A330, A340, A380, A350, A320neo and A330neo. According to CT Ingenierie, since 2000 it has provided these engineering services to Airbus in Toulouse and has completed over 400,000 engineering hours in nacelle engineering activities.
For over 15 years CT Ingenierie says it has provided engineering solutions in areas such as design engineering, stress engineering and structural testing of components and further explains that, thanks to its experience and continuous improvement, Airbus has awarded The CT Engineering Group a three-year extension of nacelle serial activities.
A nacelle is the encasing of an engine outside the plane, found on the wing. The nacelle serves many functions; it provides an aerodynamic shape to the propulsive assembly, it protects the engine against impacts, it reduces the volume of the engine, and helps the airplane brake during landing. It is therefore a key element in the performance of the aircraft.
