Development of Measurement Techniques for Visualisation and Evaluation of Reverse Flow Interactions with Fan


Reverse flows generated by the thrust reverser unit (TRU) are of significant complexity. In order to ensure reliable fan performance when the TRU is deployed, the flow topologies up- and down-stream of the fan module need to be investigated and understood. For this purpose, advanced measurement techniques for a novel level of visualisation and evaluation of reverse flow interactions with fan aerodynamics need to be developed. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
