Abstract [en]

This final thesis is made by a student at Mälardalens högskola in Västerås from the academy of Innovation, Design and Engineering. This report examines the possibility of upgrading and modernizing current aircraft maintenance hangars by using the latest technologies.

 

Aircraft maintenance is essential to keep aircraft’s continuing airworthiness, and making sure it’s always declared fit for flight. But the maintenance procedures in hangars today can be seen as a bit old-fashioned. This report is therefore aiming to explore the possibilities of building the hangar of the future, where the latest technologies is used for an easier, more accurate and faster maintenance. A big problem that this project could solve in case that it could be a reality is damage assessment. In flight industry is it a bit tricky to assess a damage that had happened to an aircraft with the current methods that are used in today’s maintenance hangars. Taking measures for damages isn’t easy, and it’s even harder to look into the Structure Repair Manual (SRM) in theory and follow it in reality to assess the damage. It is something that technicians and engineers suffer from, because of the big responsibility that it withholds.

 

In the process of writing this thesis, and with the help of literature studies, an interview with the SAS engineer Anders Dalén, researches about the subject and the term of HOF at other companies the purpose of this thesis was reached. Which is exploring if HOF can be a reality in the near future. As for the technology of the project, it could be explained as a process or a chain that contains some steps. The idea is that an aircraft would roll into the hangar and get scanned by a stationary 3D scanner that is placed in the top of the hangar entrance. The data that the scanner later sends into a computer system gets processed by two or more programs in order to detect possible damage. If damage is found, then it would get measured with a portable 3D scanner. The analyzing programs would process its data and give an assessment on the damage, and also suggestions for reparations.

 

The conclusion for this thesis is that it is, in theory, possible that “Hangar of the future” can be a reality in the future. Because the technologies that is required for it do exist in our time, though they exist in other forms/ branches.
