  • Miao, Zhisong. (Cranfield University, 2012-01)
    The increasing demand of more economical and environmentally friendly aero engines leads to the proposal of a new concept – geared turbofan. In this thesis, the characteristics of this kind of engine and relevant ...

    Future turbo-fan engines are expected to operate at low specific thrust with high bypass ratios to improve propulsive efficiency. Typically, this can result in an increase in fan diameter and nacelle size with the associated ...
  • Robinson, Matthew; MacManus, David G.; Christie, Robert; Sheaf, Christopher; Grech, Nicholas (Elsevier, 2020-09-09)
    As the size of aero-engines has increased in recent years, the need for slimmer and shorter nacelles has become more pressing. A more aggressive design space must therefore be explored for nacelle designs which are expected ...
  • Tejero, Fernando; MacManus, David G.; Sheaf, Christopher (Elsevier, 2019-05-29)
    Genetic algorithms are a powerful optimisation technique for the design of complex engineering systems. Although computing power continuously grows, methods purely based on expensive numerical simulations are still challenging ...
