Final Report Summary - NACRE (New aircraft concepts research)
The ultimate aim of the NACRE project was to integrate and validate technologies that enabled new aircraft concepts to be assessed. As such, it did not concentrate on one specific aircraft concept, but it developed solutions at a generic aircraft component level (cabin, wing, ...
Programme: FP6-AEROSPACE
Record Number: 53021

Final Report Summary - NEWAC (New aero engine core concepts)
NEWAC focus was on thermal efficiency to further reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and fuel consumption. For a conventional gas turbine cycle the thermal efficiency is mainly a function of the overall pressure ratio and the turbine entry temperature. A further increase of ...
