Welcome to the RAeS Structures & Materials Group
The aim of the Structures and Materials Group is to assist the Society and its members to understand the complex subjects of material use and structural design and analysis (including statics, dynamics and aeroelastics). It also covers the areas of manufacturing and testing in as much as this effects material and design requirements. The scope extends to cover advanced CAD, CAM and CAE tools and includes Multidisciplinary Design Optimisation methodology and application. New materials development is considered in relation to its influence on structural efficiency and integrity, aeroelastic performance and production processes.
The Group also supplies the UK representative on the CEAS Structures and Materials Technical Committee. The Group organises a number of national and international conferences which cover the various topics in its remit.

NEWS AND EVENTS
The European Rotorcraft Forum (ERF) is one of the premier events in the rotorcraft
community’s calendar, bringing together manufacturers, research centres, academia,
operators and regulatory agencies to discuss advances in research, development, design,
manufacturing, testing and operation of rotorcraft.
The Airlander combines the best of aeroplanes, helicopters, hovercraft and airship design to produce the largest, and one of the greenest and most innovative aircraft presently available.
