ABSTRACT
This article reports that a British team is to examine how aircraft engines will look in 50 years' time and investigate the potential of advanced concepts such as hydrogen fuel, constant volume combustion and intelligent engines. Professor Pericles Pilidis of Cranfield's gas turbine engineering group, which is leading the research, said the work is essential for reducing aviation pollution. The researchers will test a range of concepts using advanced computer modelling, including the potential of hydrogen fuel, blended wing bodies, combustion at a constant volume, intelligent engines that maximise performance, and distributed propulsion with engine and propulsor separated.
