Fluid Active Flow Control Enabled Variable Turbine Vane
TS-065423 — Turbine aircraft engines (jet engines) are a type of propulsion system commonly used in aviation. These engines operate on jet propulsion, where air is drawn into the engine, mixed with fuel, ignited, and then expelled at high speed to generate thrust. Jet engines are used in commercial and military aircraft, as well as helicopters.
While turbine aircraft engines offer higher efficiency and performance than their counterparts, there is still a need to improve efficiency and reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gases. It’s estimated that jet engines account for over 2.5% of all CO2 emissions, and there are substantial …
