Jet engine and gas turbine system simulation

System simulation for innovative aircraft propulsion design

Estimated Watching Time: 70 minutes


Aircraft propulsion system simulation model

In this webinar, you will learn how to use an integrated system simulation methodology for innovative and sustainable aircraft propulsion design. Find out why system simulation can provide an essential competitive advantage for jet engine and gas turbine manufacturers.

A hybrid-electric engine is a promising technology for aircraft propulsion, in alignment with sustainable mobility trends. Nevertheless, technology maturity combined with innovative architectures must be closely assessed to prevent thermal management from becoming a breaking point in the design cycle.

To help you address these key challenges, dedicated approaches are to be applied where simulation plays a central role all along the design process. From conceptual, preliminary and detailed design phases, the use of modeling and simulation at the system level results in shorter development time and reduced risk while removing silos between disciplines and applications.

Aircraft engine system simulation

Learn how to:

  • Size your gas turbine (on- and off-design) and automatically generate a transient behavioral model integrating control
  • Build innovative propulsion architectures and make trade-off studies
  • De-risk innovation by integrating your powerplant model to carry out thermal management studies
  • Adopt a digital twin approach to support all development phases – from early concept, trade-off studies and detailed design to verification and certification processes

Jet engine simulation software

Learn how you can address jet engine complexity with Simcenter system simulation solutions. Examine strategies to overcome common challenges to develop innovative propulsion systems. See how these solutions can help you manage environmental and regulatory constraints, develop new propulsion concepts, explore new business models and succeed in the face of increased competition.

Aircraft propulsion systems

Experts from Cranfield University and Hellenic Air Force Academy will showcase how multi-disciplinary tools and simulation platforms can be used to assess novel propulsion systems for aircraft and rotorcraft applications.

Key takeaways:

  • Explore and assess the performance of parallel hybrid-electric propulsion systems for two platforms
  • Learn how a hydrogen gas turbine-fuel cell propulsion system for tilt-rotor aircraft compares against gas turbine-only kerosene and hydrogen cases at the aircraft and mission level
  • Analyze and quantify the potential of a parallel hybrid-electric for a short/medium range aircraft focusing on performance and operability and identify thermal management challenges
  • Develop an engine model for a specific supersonic application based on on-wing measurements aiming for performance monitoring
