System simulation for innovative aircraft propulsion design
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.
Learn how to:
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.
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.
