Title (EN) SUPPORT MEMBER FOR A LOAD-BEARING STRUCTURE
(FR) ÉLÉMENT SUPPORT POUR STRUCTURE PORTANTE
Abstract:
(EN) A load-bearing structure, such as an aircraft wing, is proposed including a light redirection mechanism, such that light incident at any point of a light collection region of the structure, is redirected along a guide path, which may be along the surface (i.e. substantially parallel to the surface), to at least one photoelectric element. Thus, the light is collected throughout the collection region and concentrated into a photoelectric element which has a size which does not scale with the area of the collection area. The light redirection mechanism is part of a support member which defines the shape of at least a portion of the structure by the rigidity of the support member. The support member typically includes a load-bearing portion which maintains the profile of the structure, and the guide path is inward (i.e. towards the centre of the wing) relative to the surface of the structure defined by the support member.
(FR) L'invention a trait à une structure portante, telle qu'une aile d'aéronef, comprenant un mécanisme de redirection de lumière, de sorte que la lumière incidente en un point quelconque d'une région de collecte de lumière de la structure soit redirigée le long d'un chemin de guidage, qui peut se situer le long de la surface (c'est-à-dire sensiblement parallèle à la surface), vers au moins un élément photoélectrique. Ainsi, la lumière est collectée dans toute la région de collecte et concentrée dans un élément photoélectrique dont la taille n'est pas à l'échelle de la superficie de la zone de collecte. Le mécanisme de redirection de lumière fait partie d'un élément support qui définit par sa rigidité la forme d'au moins une partie de la structure. L'élément support comporte habituellement une partie porteuse qui maintient le profil de la structure, et le trajet de guidage est orienté vers l'intérieur (c'est-à-dire vers le centre de l'aile) par rapport à la surface de la structure définie par l'élément support.
