Installation effects on engine design
Other conference contribution, 2020

Increasing the engine bypass ratio is one way to improve propulsive efficiency. However, an increase in the bypass ratio (BPR) has usually been associated with an increase in the fan diameter. Consequently, there can be a notable increase in the impact of the engine installation on the overall aircraft performance. In order to achieve a better balance between those factors, it requires novel nacelle and engine design concepts. This report mainly reviews installation effects on engine design. Firstly, the installation effects assessment methods are introduced. Then, the installation effects on engine cycle design, intake design and exhaust design are sequentially reviewed.
