Off-Design Installed Nacelles

Project description

Optimising novel engine designs to reduce fuel consumption, noise and emissions

Decreasing aircraft fuel consumption reduces emissions and operating costs. One of the most promising solutions is the ultra-high bypass ratio (UHBR) turbofan engine. The bypass ratio of a turbofan engine is the ratio of air bypassing the engine core versus going through it and, subsequently, the contribution of each of these to thrust. Increasing the bypass flux has generally involved larger diameter engine housings, which can increase drag as well as vibration and noise in the airframe, and negate some of the benefits of the additional thrust. The EU-funded ODIN project is characterising aerodynamic flows in compact UHBR engine models during various flight conditions and scenarios using computational and experimental methods.
