Corrections: July 2014 HPC

Corrections to two articles from the May 2014 issue of HPC.

HPC guest columnist Rani Richardson (Dassault Systèmes, Waltham, Mass.), in her Market Trends offering (HPC May 2014, p. 7) titled, “An Internet aid for acceleration of aerospace composites certification,” referenced comments made by Dr. Waruna P. Seneviratne, technical director/scientist at the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR, Wichita, Kan.). Unfortunately, we misspelled the good doctor’s last name. Our apologies to Dr. Seneviratne. HPC regrets the error.

And in HPC’s recent JEC Europe 2014 Review (HPC May 2014, pp. 30-35), our special-focus sidebar on p. 31, titled, “One-shot nose landing gear door demonstrator,” outlined the unique design and manufacturing techniques used by Coexpair SA (Namur, Belgium) on re-engineered composite nose landing gear doors representative of those currently used on the Airbus (Toulouse, France) A350 XWB commercial passenger jet. The part was molded out of the autoclave, using Salt Lake City-based Radius Engineering’s same-qualified resin transfer molding (SQRTM) process. HPC neglected to mention, however, that the development was the result of collaboration with SLCA, a division of the Safran Group (Paris, France) and was funded under the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), which was the European Union’s chief instrument for research funding, during the period 2007 to 2013. HPC regrets the omission.
