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.
