Reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency of aeroplane engines
Air transportation greatly benefits society, but it also emits harmful greenhouse gases and contributes to global warming. The EU-funded ESTiMatE project aims to develop a smart modelling software tool that will be able to predict pollutant emissions and soot in aero-engine combustors. The advanced modelling strategy will use computational fluid dynamics in simulations to analyse the chemical transformation of jet fuel and particle composition in turbine engine combustors. It will play a significant role in the design of cleaner and more fuel-efficient aeroplane engines, not to mention the positive impact on the environment due to reduced emissions.
