  1. 1. Towards Environmentally Friendly Aero Engines

    Author : Rickard Avellan; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; geared turbofan; energy efficiency; turbofan; environmentally friendly; DDTF; aero engines; GTF; aircraft;

    Abstract : Since the introduction of subsonic jet driven commercial aircraft, incremental improvements in overall efficiency has been a driving requirement as well as a selling argument for the engine industry. The historical overall efficiency improvement is the result of continuous advances in aerodynamic design, increase of overall pressure ratios, turbine inlet temperatures and propulsive efficiencies in parallel with the development of stronger and lighter materials.

  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. Multi-Disciplinary Conceptual Design of Future Jet Engine Systems

    University dissertation from Cranfield : Cranfield University

    Author : Konstantinos G. Kyprianidis; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gas Turbine; Intercooled; Recuperated; Turbofan; Future; Simulation; Performance; Aircraft; Emissions; Multi-disciplinary; Jet Engine; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis describes various aspects of the development of a multi-disciplinary aero engine conceptual design tool, TERA2020 (Techno-economic, Environmental and Risk Assessment for 2020), based on an explicit algorithm that considers: engine performance, engine aerodynamic and mechanical design, aircraft design and performance, emissions prediction and environmental impact, engine and airframe noise, and production, maintenance and direct operating costs.As part of this research effort, a newly-derived semi-empirical NOx correlation for modern rich-burn single-annular combustors is proposed.

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

    University dissertation from Cranfield : Cranfield University

    Author : Lei Xu; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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.
