The Stage Of Static Tests Of The Caisson Of The Composite Wing Ms-21-300 Was Successfully Completed

 In the laboratory of the Testing Center "Strength" of FSUE TsAGI, an important stage of static testing of the caisson (power section) of the composite wing, created using innovative domestic technology for the MS-21-300 aircraft, was successfully completed. The manufacturer is JSC Aerocomposite.

During the tests on the strength of the load on the caisson, the wing panels were brought to the limit - with "bending up", down to the destruction of the structure. As a result, it was experimentally confirmed that the design has an additional margin of safety in relation to design loads - this will ensure the safety of the composite wing when operating the MS-21-300 aircraft.

Thus, the tests confirmed the correctness of the technical solutions adopted in the design of the composite wing design and the readiness of the Russian aviation science and industry to produce modern competitive aircraft on the world market.

The conducted researches show that our aviation science and our industry have created an innovative reserve, which for 2-3 years is ahead of existing world technologies in the field of composite aircraft structures. The experience gained in the project MS-21, I'm sure, will be in demand in the world, -

the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov said.

"To tell the truth, we were very worried, watching the progress of the loading of the wing," says the general director of TsAGI, the academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Sergei Chernyshev. - And we are glad that the result exceeded our expectations. Thus, the most important technological milestone on the way to creating an innovative aircraft has been successfully passed.
