Thanks to the tests carried out on the parts of the products using artificial intelligence, Turkish Aerospace Industries managed to reduce the fatigue tests applied to the structural components of the aircraft by 70 percent. In addition, with the commissioning of digital twin technology, the life of the material will be determined during the testing phase. Thus, besides saving time, effective use of human resources will be ensured, the rate of scrap material generated during the tests will be reduced and the energy consumption during the test will be reduced.
Turkish Aerospace Industries was able to verify the international scientific work, including the “Turkish Aerospace USA” office in the USA and academics from the world's leading universities. Thanks to the work involving TOBB University, the fatigue tests applied on the metals (Aluminum and Titanium) materials were scientifically verified with artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning. In the next stage, studies have been started for the application of materials such as metals, composite polymer materials and titanium alloys used in aircraft structures.
The company, which will also commission the Digital Twin technology, will start the test of the product's twin designed in the virtual environment as soon as the test phases of the product begin. Turkish Aerospace Industries, which has managed to shorten the test phase with artificial intelligence, will collect test data from the same piece that it will design in a virtual environment with Digital Twin technology. As a result of the test data obtained from here, it can be determined beforehand which areas will get tired and how much. Thus, the durability of the part will be known.
Sharing his views on the work carried out, Turkish Aerospace Industries General Manager Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil said, “Our efforts to develop our aircraft at world standards with tomorrow's technologies continue rapidly. Collaboration with our engineers in our company's office in the USA and academicians who are experts in their fields bore fruit. We have nationalized another talent and we have confirmed this with TOBB University, one of the respected universities of our country. We continue to work on the use of more advanced technologies. I would like to thank everyone who has made developments that will contribute to the aviation ecosystem of our country.”
