Multidisciplinary Design Optimization of Aero Engines: Environmental Performance-Based Methodology
Paper in proceedings, 2008
A methodology and tool that allows evaluating and quantifying aero engines design trade-offs originated as a consequence of addressing conflicting objectives such as low environmental impact and low operating costs is presented, and applied to a general case study to assess the
feasibility of using new highly efficient engine configurations: intercooled recuperated (ICR) engines. The case study results show that according to the ICR systems performance (heat exchangers effectiveness, pressure
losses, and weight penalty) they could find usage in practical applications.
