Project description

Optimised aero-engine nacelle design for a Clean Sky in Europe

Nacelles, which house the engines on an aircraft, require a complete facelift to keep up with the next generation of engines. The wider fan diameter of the ultra-high bypass ratio (UHBR) type engine – a conventional shrouded turbofan type configuration – requires a new design for nacelles. The EU-funded IVANHOE project will develop a new type of nacelle. It will use several fidelity level aerodynamic modelling tools to allow for fast iterations and the down selection of nacelle geometries and locations. Wing/nacelle interference will be taken into account. This method will be validated by wind tunnel experiments with new and advanced wind tunnel model and measuring techniques.
