Biphasic Heat Transport integration for efficient heat exchange within Composite materials Nacelle

Project description

Novel heat exchange technology will also lighten the load on big 'birds'

An airplane comprises the fuselage – the main body of an airplane, wings, tail, engines and other parts. The nacelle is the smooth cover that houses a jet engine. This aerodynamic shell minimises drag and also reduces noise and serves a de-icing function. Since the 1970s, nacelles made from composites have decreased the weight, noise, and emissions associated with engine function. Now BISANCE is making green greener with an autonomous biphasic system to simultaneously cool engine oil and provide ice protection. Heat from the engine oil will be used to de-ice the nacelle. Even better, the new system will significantly decrease the weight, CO2 emissions, and lifetime operating costs of a turboprop aircraft.
