Chemical risk integration in aeronautic products design
In a restrictive context (REACh regulation), this project aims at developping a method enabling one to evaluate, as soon as possible in the design process, the potential chemical risk related to any aeronautic equipment' s part during their different life cycle steps (from delivery to end of life). Assesment results is integrated among the numerous data that are by designers, in order to improve hazardous substances traceability and equipment's chemical risk control. The method's development lays on the analysis of different chemical risk assessments modes (different perimeters) and the understanding of aeronautical design practices. In situ tests (design offices) have been run in an iterative way, in order to define assessment ans decision making tools responding to designers identified needs. The work done leads to the proposal of a method which enables the designer to cope with chemical risk problematics, only from the data resulting from design process : this new approach can be considered as miscible in designer's daily activities.
