Composite fan Aerodynamic, Aeroelastic, and Aeroacoustic VAlidation Rig

Project description

Ultra-high bypass aircraft engines put to the test

Ultra-high bypass ratio (UHBR) turbofan engines are an emerging aircraft solution that allows for advances in propulsion efficiency. The technology works by increasing the bypass ratio of the air drawn-in through the fan disk, which then passes through the nacelle without the need for more energy. Although it is an appealing prospect, it requires overcoming a number of design and integration challenges. The aim of the EU-funded CA3ViAR project is to design a test-case fan geometry that will develop instability mechanism representative of UHBR fans. Researchers will then measure its aerodynamic, aeroelastic and aero-acoustic performance in a wide range of operational conditions. Results from experimental tests will help engineers ensure effective engine operation.
