UHBR Engine Technology for aircraft OPeration, Emissions and economic Assessments

Project description

Assessing the performance and economic viability of future engine architectures

To meet Flightpath 2050 environmental targets, CS2 research is targeting further improvement in overall aero-engine efficiency as an objective. This requires transition from traditional propulsion system design and hence includes introduction of ultra-high bypass ratios, higher core temperatures through utilisation of advanced CMC materials for the hot section and the utilisation of alternative fuels to reduce emissions. Through numerical simulations, UTOPEA will investigate impacts of these design change on the utilisation of the aircraft in terms of operational capabilities, economic competitiveness and potential for reduction in emissions through introduction of dual-fuel combustion systems and non-drop-in fuels. The key outcome of UTOPEA will be integration and delivery of multi-fidelity tools/methods for preliminary design of more economically and environmentally efficient UHBR engines.
