New Technologies with IMPACT-AE

Technological key-features

Automation of the combustion aero-design process, coupling of different levels of combustor preliminary design tools from 1D combustor sizing models up to full 3D-CFD combustor simulations
Improved parameterisation of the combustion system allowing scaling
Increased accuracy of simulation tools through improved combustor wall cooling and NOx models
Design and experimental validation of new combustor cooling schemes suitable for low emission combustion
Generation of improved low NOx combustor designs based on optimisation techniques and improved knowledge based design rules
Establishment of rapid-prototype design processes
Generation of comprehensive design rules for low emission high efficient combustion via detailed non-intrusive and intrusive measurements inside the combustors as well as multi-sector and TRL 5 full-annular combustor tests to validate the design methods
