TOICA Stands for

"Thermal Overall Integrated Conception of Aircraft".

It is a 3-year European project co-ordinated by Airbus that started on 1st September 2013. Its Consortium gathers 32 partners from 8 countries for a global budget of 26.5M€.
Thermal behaviour of aircraft has recently become a crucial subject due to many factors: the increasing number of complex systems required by modern, more electric, commercial aircraft, the introduction of hotter engines with higher by-pass ratios, the increased use of composite material in aircraft structures, and the confinement of highly dissipative equipment and systems in smaller areas to gain space for passengers and cargo.
