Engine Module Validators (ENOVAL)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

The ENOVAL project will provide the next step of engine technologies to achieve and surpass the ACARE 2020 goals on the way towards Flightpath 2050. ENOVAL completes the European 7th Framework Programme (FP7) roadmap of Level 2 aero engine projects. ENOVAL will focus on the low pressure system of ultra-high by-pass ratio propulsion systems (12 < BPR < 20) in conjunction with ultra high overall pre ...

Engine Breakthrough Components and Subsystems (E-BREAK)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Mar 31, 2017,

Future aero engines will need to be more efficient and contribute to the reduction on environmental impact of air transportation. They must reach some standards of performance by reducing emissions and creating some savings on operation costs.EIMG consortium has launched since several years some initiatives to develop future engines in the frame of the European Committee research programmes.Within ...

Even though composite materials are more and more used in modern airframes, many significant improvements are still achievable. Firstly, the substitution of the assembly of many small composite parts by a single one-shot large part provides additional weight reduction. Secondly, the final assembly line process must be adapted to composite properties (lack of ductility, stiffness). Thirdly, if the ...

Thermal Overall Integrated Conception of Aircraft (TOICA)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2016,

Thermal behaviour of aircraft has recently become a crucial subject due to many factors: increasing number of complex systems required by modern, more electric, commercial aircraft, the introduction of hotter engines with higher by-pass ratios, the increased use of composite material in aircraft structures, or the confinement of highly dissipative equipment and systems in smaller areas to earn spa ...

Boltless assembling Of Primary Aerospace Composite Structures (BOPACS)

Start date: Sep 1, 2012, End date: Feb 29, 2016,

"The main challenge of the BOPACS project is to reduce the weight and costs of primary aerospace structures by developing bolt free adhesive bonded joints that comply with the airworthiness requirements.Until today thin walled composite primary aerospace structures are joined by using a large number of fasteners. Bolt free joining would considerably contribute to the weight and cost reduction of a ...

High Integrity Low Distortion Assembly (HILDA)

Start date: Sep 1, 2012, End date: Aug 31, 2015,

"HILDA will deliver a cost effective, low distortion welding process for EU shipyards to allow them to maintain competitiveness and produce light, strong, more fuel efficient vessels. The solid state technique will enable the modular construction of dimensionally accurate, high strength, corrosion resistant fabrications across the entire range of steels, enabling the introduction of stronger, toug ...

"The goal of ERICKA is to directly contribute to reductions in aircraft engine fuel consumption with a targeted contribution of 1% reduction in SFC relative to engines currently in service. The fuel efficiency of a jet engine used for aircraft propulsion is dependent on the performance of many key engine components. One of the most important is the turbine whose efficiency has a large influence ...

Low Emission Gas Turbine Technology for Hydrogen-rich Syngas (H2-IGCC)

Start date: Nov 1, 2009, End date: Apr 30, 2014,

The overall objective of this project is to provide and demonstrate technical solutions which will allow the use of state-of-the-art highly efficient, reliable gas turbines in the next generation of IGCC plants, suitable for combusting undiluted hydrogen-rich syngas derived from a pre-combustion CO2 capture process, with high fuel flexibility. The recognised challenge is to operate a stable and co ...

Long-Term Advanced Propulsion Concepts and Technologies II (LAPCAT-II)

Start date: Oct 1, 2008, End date: Dec 31, 2013,

"Lacpat II is a logical follow-up of the previous EC-project which has as objective to reduce antipodal flights to less than 2 to 4 hours. Among the several studied vehicles, only two novel aircraft for a Mach 5 and 8 flight are retained in the present proposal. Starting from the available Mach 5 vehicle and its related precooled turboramjet, assumed performance figures of different components ...

"NEEDS and CONCEPTS: Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) will be very important for Aeronautics. A study from Goodrich stated: "Structural Health Monitoring shows a great potential in terms of cost savings coming from the benefits it would have on inspections which are currently about 25% of the Life Cycle Cost of an airline". Some applications are intended to explore the “out-of-flight domain” con ...

Engine LUBrication SYStem technologies (ELUBSYS)

Start date: Jun 1, 2009, End date: Nov 30, 2012,

"In aeronautics, gas turbine engines are equipped with lubrication systems whose function is to cool and lubricate the highly loaded rolling bearings and gearboxes. Current lubrication systems are based on architectures and technologies that have not much evolved for the last 30 years and that, despite advances made on components, have reached their technological limit. Future aero-engine requirem ...

Future High-Altitude High-Speed Transport 20XX (FAST20XX)

Start date: Dec 1, 2009, End date: Nov 30, 2012,

"The current project aims at the investigation and development of technologies and steps necessary for approaches to conquer the grey zone between aeronautics and space in Europe, and thus to set the foundation of a new paradigm for transportation in the long term. The underlying concepts considered are a) a European space plane based on an airplane launch approach to advance European know how in ...

valiDation of Radical Engine Architecture systeMs (DREAM)

Start date: Feb 1, 2008, End date: Jan 31, 2012,

"Since the publication of the ACARE goals, the commercial and political pressure to reduce CO2 has increased considerably. DREAM is the response of the aero-engine community to this pressure. The first major DREAM objective is to design, integrate and validate new engine concepts based on open rotor contra-rotating architectures to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions 7% beyond the ACARE 2020 ...
