 ONGOING 
For decades, most of the aviation research activities have been focused on the reduction of noise and NOx and CO2 emissions. However, emissions from aircraft gas turbine engines of non-volatile PM, consisting primarily of soot particles, are of international concern today. Despite the lack of knowledge toward soot formation processes and characterization in terms of mass and size, engine manufactu ...

Low Emissions Core-Engine Technologies (LEMCOTEC)

Start date: Oct 1, 2011, End date: Jun 30, 2017,

The main objective of the LEMCOTEC project will be the improvement of core-engine thermal efficiency by increasing the overall pressure ratio (OPR) to up to 70 leading to a further reduction of CO2. Since NOx increases with OPR, combustion technologies have to be further developed, at the same time, to at least compensate for this effect. The project will attain and exceed the ACARE targets for 20 ...

Full Aero-thermal Combustor-Turbine interactiOn Research (FACTOR)

Start date: Dec 1, 2010, End date: Nov 30, 2016,

To achieve lower Specific Fuel Consumption (SFC) and CO2/NOx emissions, modern turbomachineries operate at high velocities and high temperature conditions. The lack of confidence in the prediction of combustor-turbine interactions leads to apply extra safety margins on components design. Therefore, the understanding of combustor-turbine flow field interactions is mandatory to preserve High Pressur ...

Turboshaft Engine Exhaust Noise Identification (TEENI)

Start date: Apr 1, 2008, End date: Mar 31, 2013,

"Helicopters can generate a large amount of external noise, as their traditional missions –rescue, medical, law enforcement– are very close to populated areas. As emphasised in ACARE SRA2, increasing rotorcraft missions in the public vicinity should not lead to increasing public disturbance. Turboshaft engine is known as a major contributor to exterior noise for take-off conditions. ACARE SRA2 ob ...
