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

    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.

    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 laws of thermodynamics, it is possible to understand how the performance parameters affect the component performance, but it is difficult to directly compare the magnitude of various loss sources.

  3. 3. On the Design of Energy Efficient Aero Engines: Some Recent Innovations

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Rickard Avellan; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; turbofan; aero engine; inter-turbine reheat; emissions; variable cycle; energy efficiency; propeller; NOx; MDO;

    Abstract : In the light of the energy crisis of the 1970s, the old aerospace paradigm of flying higher and faster shifted towards the development of more energy efficient air transport solutions. Today, the aeronautical research and development community is more prone to search for innovative solutions, in particular since the improvement rate of change is decelerating somewhat in terms of energy efficiency, which still is far from any physical limits of aero engine and aircraft design.

    Abstract : The prime mover in the world today is the Internal Combustion (IC) engine. The development and improvement of the internal combustion engines since Nicolaus August Otto and Rudolf Diesel has continued until today and will continue long into the future. No major competitor to the IC engine has yet emerged. READ MORE
