Analysis of an Intercooled Recuperated Aero-engine
Paper in proceedings, 2011

The multi-disciplinary tool TERA2020 is employed to explore the design space of the Intercooled Recuperated Aero-engine being studied in the NEWAC project. To have a better understanding of the design space, a parametric analysis was conducted. This allows selecting of an engine close to optimal performance. Within the constraints, a 4.61% of fuel saving was observed compared to the baseline engine.
