Advanced High Bypass Ratio Low-Speed Composite Fan Design and Validation


The objectives of this topic would be to:
• Establish a state-of-the-art review in composite low-speed fan design methods and available experiments. Both at the level of composite fan manufacturing and design methods.
• Provide a specific design, able to highlight expected instability phenomena, suitable for experimental validation of complex multi-physical phenomena in view of establishing a European test case (experimental database) available under open access for other institutions to validate their design methods.
• Manufacture and test the low-speed composite fan model and establish an exhaustive experimental database as an open test case, with aerodynamic, aero-elastic and aero-acoustic data.
