  1. 1. Aero Engine Intercooling

    Author : Xin Zhao; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : PIV; CFD; porous media; aero engine; pressure measurements; intercooling control; system performance; intercooler; variable flow path;

    Abstract : Intercooling has the potential to provide a shortcut to the next generation aero engines with higher bypass ratio (BPR), higher overall pressure ratio (OPR) and higher turbine inlet temperature (TIT) by lowering the high pressure compressor (HPC) delivery temperature. To be able to establish a systematic understanding of aero engine intercooling, the heat transfer and pressure loss characteristics of a given intercooler architecture need to be known in the parameter range anticipated for the engine optimization.

  2. 2. On Aero Engine Intercooling

    Author : Xin Zhao; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aero engine; CFD; porous media; coolant flow control; system performance; intercooler;

    Abstract : Establishing an optimal intercooled aero engine constitutes a coupled problem where the conceptual design of the intercooler and the engine has to be considered simultaneously. The heat transfer and pressure loss characteristics will depend on the choice of the intercooler architecture. READ MORE

  3. 3. Challenges in aero engine performance modeling

    Author : Sebastian Samuelsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; part-load modeling; Aero engine; conceptual design; performance modeling; multidisciplinary design;

    Abstract : There is a continuous drive for ever more efficient aero engines due to environmental as well as economical concerns. As the technology of conventional turbofan engines matures, there is a need for new aero engine concepts as well as incremental improvement of existing technologies. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Exergy and Aero Engine Applications

    Author : Oskar Thulin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Installed propulsion unit performance; Turbofan; Aero engine; Performance modelling; Exergy analysis;

    Abstract : Aero engine performance analysis is highly multidimensional using various measures of component performance such as turbomachinery and mechanical efficiencies, and pressure loss coefficients. Using conventional performance analysis, relying on only the first law of thermodynamics, it is possible to understand how the performance parameters affect the component performance, but not how the component performance relates to the system performance.

  5. 5. Analysis and Evaluation of Innovative Aero Engine Core Concepts

    Author : Lei Xu; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; intercooled recuperated cycle; intercooler; intercooled cycle; multidisciplinary optimization; turbofan; innovative core; variable core cycle; thermal efficiency; aero engine;

    Abstract : Turbofan engines, which power the majority of the modern aircraft today, have achieved such a high maturity that small improvements of the engine performance requires a large investment. More innovative technologies, including those related to the engine cores, become increasinglyattractive due to the high fuel price in recent years as well as the strict regulations on emissions.
