Research Area

The primary activity of ASRC is to conduct research and development projects on aviation services. There are three major sources of research topic: The generic research projects funded through members’ fee; the projects funded by Innovation and Technology Commission or other government bodies; and the projects commissioned specifically by companies.

Major ASRC research areas are:

  • Adaptive Machining Technology

  • Methods to Detect and Access Bondline Quality and Performance

  • Environmentally Compliant Coating Removal and Installation Methods

  • Heat Damage Assessment Methods for Composites

  • Improved Thermal Control System for Bonded Repairs

  • Reduced Cure Time for Sealants and Adhesives

  • Fastener Hole Repair Methods for Composites Structures

  • Develop and Implement a Remote Expert Capability for NDI/Diagnostics and Repair
