A350 S19.1 -900&-1000 Step7 Front Firewall Static Strength


  • Client: ALESTIS AEROSPACE – Airbus SAS
  • Date: 2019 – 2020
  • Aircraft: XW-A350-900|XW-A350-1000


ICEMM has carried out several structural analysis of the section S19.1 of the A350XWB aircraft throughout the different steps of the airplane development, since the preliminary design, first flight and certifications of the different versions.

In this project, the static validation of the Front Firewall for the A350 XWB S19.1 Step 7 and on configuration has been carried out, where certification loads envelopes for -900 and -1000 have been used to perform the strength justification.
