Progress Towards Adaptive Aircraft Engine Nacelles
2014 (English)In: 29th Congress of the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences, ICAS, International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences , 2014Conference paper (Other academic)
Emissions and noise of aircraft engineshave to be significantly further reduced andefficiency further increased in the future. Onemeans is the improvement of airflow though theengine and especially so in its inlet region byproper shapes. Due to changes in the flightconditions, the optimal nacelle shape varies. Itwould thus be beneficial to be able to change thenacelle shape. Evaluations on system and enginelevels including related flow simulations supportthe identification of proper shaping parameters.Initial concepts of possible morphingtechnologies are discussed as well.
