Aerodynamic upgrade of Surface Air Cooled Oil Cooler (SACOC)

Objective

The next generation of Geared Turbofan, like the UHBR concept, requires larger heat exchangers to dissipate the heat generated in operation. The main aims of this project are:
- to develop a predictive numerical methodology to assess the performance of any new air heat exchanger concept. The methodology will be validated against an experimental database to be acquired in this project.
- to evaluate numerically but also experimentally new concepts like SACOC without fins to improve the current SACOC technology, resulting from the better understanding of physical phenomena.
