  Topics:
The topics to be covered with this RSM will include the following subjects: - Ultra high bypass ration engines - Vectoring and variable area nozzle - Open Rotor - Intercooling / Recuperation - Active control concepts (ref to AVT-128) - More Electric Engine - Alternate Fuel / Fuel Cell - Alternate Cycles
Background:
Current propulsion system concepts have reached a peak in terms of efficiency and emissions and only minor improvements are expected with the current systems in future. Taking this into account, the scope of the proposed activity is to identify disruptive technologies / conceptual evolutions to allow step changes to propulsion systems by using a system approach rather than isolated and incremental improvements on component level. In Canada, USA and Europe several activities have been launched in the past to identify candidate concepts. This knowledge shall be the baseline for a Specialists Meeting summarizing and sharing the expected Technology steps within the timescales “less than 10 years” and “more than 10 years”. Specialists from the participating countries will present their vision of advanced A/C propulsion systems covering the areas as described under “Topics to be covered”. This shall allow to identify the benefits of different candidate concepts and assess the challenges to be answered prior to introduction of the next generation propulsion systems.
Objectives:
- Identify disruptive technologies / conceptual evolutions to allow step changes to propulsion systems by using a system approach rather than isolated and incremental improvements on component level – Summarize and share the expected technology steps within the timescales “less than 10 years” and “more than 10 years” – This shall allow to identify the benefits of different candidate concepts and assess the challenges to be answered prior to introduction of the next generation propulsion systems
