Three major research centers involving the production and development of domestic aircraft engines opened in Shanghai on Sept. 19.

The unveiling of the China Airplane Engine Whole Structure Analysis Engineering Research Center, the Structural Integrity Engineering Research Center, and the joint Shanghai Supercomputer Center and China National Aviation Industrial Group (AVIC) Commercial Aircraft Engine Corporation Branch Center is a sign of the significant progress of the research and development of key technologies of the Chinese airplane engine "China Heart."

China's homegrown airliner CJ-1000A is scheduled to finish its training plane in 2016 and will be officially delivered in 2020.

Wang Zhiqiang, the vice director of the technology department of AVIC Commercial Aircraft Engine Co., Ltd., said that the Whole Structure Analysis Engineering Research Center could provide whole process support for the research and development of civil airplane engines.

The core task of the Structure Integrity Engineering Research Center was setting up a design system for advanced engine structure strength. The supercomputer center, a combination of AVIC Commercial Aircraft Engine Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Supercomputer Center, could become a high-performance computing platform for the research and development of airplane engines in China.
