The CENTRELINE consortium is formed by a strong, balanced and complementary partnership of academic, research and industrial institutions. The CENTRELINE partners bring extensive experience in the fields of innovative, energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable aircraft and propulsion system design, computational and experimental aerodynamics, structural analysis, and electric component design to the project.
TECHNICAL ADVISORY BOARD
The CENTRELINE Technical Advisory Board (TAB) works in close interaction with WP1 to ensure the industrial feasibility of the CENTRELINE developments. The TAB consists of senior experts from the aeronautical field, including airframe and engine manufacturers, key technical component suppliers, and research institutes.
André-Denis Bord, Dip.Engineer in aeronautical sciences (SupAéro Paris, Stanford, California). From 1967 onwards, he was employed by Aérospatiale then Airbus until 2001, as an aerothermodynamicist expert for an hypersonic research glider, followed by a late contribution to the Concorde program as power plant installation specialist before leading Aérospatiale contribution to the different Airbus projects (B9, B10,B11) and becoming A320 chief engineer
from preliminary design to certification. He then joined the ATR organization as Technical Director. Since 2001, he worked for Latécoere as head of the certification office before establishing his own consultancy agency working for the main aeronautical European firms. He is honorary member of the Air and Space Academy in Toulouse.
Michaël Méheut, Dr., is a senior aerospace engineer in the Aerodynamics, Aeroelasticity and Acoustics Department of ONERA. He made his PhD on the far-field drag extraction techniques applied to civil aircraft configurations. He worked for 1.5 years at Dassault Aviation in the advanced aerodynamic unit and joined the Civil Aircraft Unit at ONERA in 2008. His works have mainly been devoted to the application of advanced optimisation techniques
to the design of innovative aircraft configurations or engine integration concepts (Boxwing, Blended Wing Body or Boundary Layer Ingestion concepts). In the frame of Clean Sky 2, he coordinates ONERA activities related to the integration of UHBR engine and the design of disruptive configurations (aircraft architectures and engine integration).
Anders Lundbladh, Dr., Company Specialist for whole engine analysis and GKN Engineering Fellow. He has a M.Sc. in Engineering Physics and a PhD on transition to turbulence from KTH, Stockholm. Since 1995, Anders was employed by Volvo Aero Corporation (now GKN Aerospace) for research and management of projects on engine components and systems. Since 1999, he has worked on
analysis of system performance and studies of structural component design for current and future air transport engines. Ever since 2004, Anders Lundbladh has been a GKN representative initiating and executing the FP6 project NEWAC and the FP7 project LEMCOTEC. Anders has lead and is leading the “future engine concepts” work in NEWAC, LEMCOTEC and ENOVAL.
Daniel Reckzeh, Dipl.-Ing., is head of Research & Technology Platue Bremen at AIRBUS and a senior technical manager in the Research & Technology Program at AIRBUS. Since 20 years he is working in the field of Overall Aircraft Design & Integration and Flight Physics. His technical roots are in aerodynamic design (e.g. for A380,
A400M and A350) and he is an expert in multidisciplinary wing/high-lift design. Besides his work for AIRBUS he is a lecturer for Aircraft Design at Jade University Wilhelmshaven. He is the author of publications focusing high-lift wing design and the inventor of numerous patents.
Olaf Brodersen, Dr.-Ing., DLR Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology, Vice Director & Head of Department Transport Aircraft. Dr. Brodersen is working since more than 20 years in the field of applied computational aerodynamics including software as well as
aircraft design aspects. He has experience from several DLR, LuFo, EU, and industry projects. He worked for Airbus Commercial from 2006 to 2008 in Flight Physics. Since 2003 he is a member of the international AIAA CFD Drag Prediction Workshop committee.
