My research project
Life cycle sustainability assessment of thermoplastic in the aircraft door structure
Under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research, there is a project named Thermoplastic on Door (TOD). This project aims to manufacture a new thermoplastic door to replace the conventional aluminium door for aircraft, using thermoforming and novel jointing techniques. My research conducts the sustainability assessments of both the thermoplastic and aluminium door to provide guidance for the manufacturers to choose a more sustainable material.
