  1. 1. Simulation and Analysis of a Novel Open Rotor Propeller - the Boxprop

    Author : Alexandre Capitao Patrao; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wake Analysis Method; CFD; Open Rotors; Propfans; Tip vortex; CROR; Propellers;

    Abstract : Economic factors and environmental awareness is driving the evolution of aircraft engines towards increasingly higher efficiencies, reaching for lower fuel consumption and lower emissions. The Counter-Rotating Open Rotor (CROR) is actively being researched around the world, promising a significantly increased propulsion efficiency relative to existing turbofans by employing two, counter-rotating propeller blade rows, thereby increasing the bypass ratio of the engine.

  2. 2. Analysis of concepts to reduce the environmental impact of aviation

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Linda Larsson; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Turboprop; Contrails; Turbofan; Aviation; Open rotor; Aircraft engine; Environment;

    Abstract : The average yearly increase in passenger kilometres travelled by air has been 5.8 % over the last 40 years. Fortunately the fuel consumption has not increased at the same rate. Over the same time period the average increase in fuel sold has been 2. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aviation and the Environment- Evaluation of High Propulsive Efficiency Engines

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Linda Larsson; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aircraft engine; Environment; Open rotor; Turbofan; Aviation;

    Abstract : There has been more than a tenfold increase in passenger kilometers traveled over the last 40 years. The highest rate of growth today is in developing countries such as China and India. These countries also have the two largest populations in the world. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental Investigation of Performance, Flow Interactions and Rotor Forcing in Axial Partial Admission Turbines

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jens Fridh; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; axial turbine; partial admission; part loads; experimental investigation; turbine performance; losses; dynamic rotor forces; forced response; unsteady flow; axialturbin; partialpådrag; dellaster; reglersteg; experimentell undersökning; turbinprestanda; förluster; dynamiska krafter; rotorvibration; instationär strömning;

    Abstract : The thesis comprises a collection of four papers with preceding summary and supplementary appendices. The core investigation solely is of experimental nature although reference and comparisons with numerical models will be addressed. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Aerodynamic Design of the Boxprop

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alexandre Capitao Patrao; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CFD; Open Rotors; Wake Analysis Method; Propeller Design; Propellers; CROR; Optimization; Tip vortex; Propfans;

    Abstract : Economic factors and environmental awareness are driving the evolution of aircraft engines towards increasingly lower fuel consumption and emissions. The Counter-Rotating Open Rotor (CROR) is actively being researched around the world, promising a significantly increased propulsion efficiency relative to existing turbofans by employing two, unducted, counter-rotating propeller blade rows, thereby increasing the bypass ratio of the engine and decreasing nacelle drag.
