Fan inlet advanced distortion simulator


Future aircraft architectures tend to higher level of distortion at the Fan inlet. The project intends first to develop a software aimed at finding out a design of a proper distortion device that would generate a pre-defined distortion map. Then, a second part will be devoted to the software validation, by performing wind tunnel tests (without any engines) onto various configurations to survey the real distortion charts obtained. This process will be first applied on steady distortion patterns and then on unsteady ones. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
