New tests on aircraft with distributed electric propulsion
Aircraft with distributed electric propulsion (DEP) could drastically reduce fuel consumption and harmful carbon emissions. The EU-funded VENUS project will contribute important knowledge on the aerodynamics and aeroacoustics performance of a wide range of DEP configurations through numerical simulations and experimental wind tunnel tests. The project's outcomes should enhance the future design of such new regional aircraft. All produced models, data and documents will be freely available to research institutions. More aerodynamic and quieter planes mean less fuel, which translates not only to cost benefits and competitiveness but also to a lower impact on the environment.
