This paper summarizes the results obtained in the framework of Clean Sky 2 REG-IADP, AIRGREEN on the development of a dedicated morphing device, i.e. a Leading Edge morphing. This device, designed so to be installed on a advanced, twin prop, regional aircraft, is conceived to guarantee high lift conditions together with a smoothed and continuous skin surface, especially important due to the presence of a laminar wing. The design of a such as complex devices required a multi-disciplinary approach, able to combine the aerodynamic performances and the structural ones related to the compliant structures concept adopted for the internal structure. The paper includes an overview of all the design challenges, the adopted solutions and finally the obtained numerical assessments.
