The continuous evolution in the design of aircraft engines
increasingly aimed at optimizing the power / weight ratio required
to support the design of pure computational tools that make it both
more immediate results, trying to optimize the computation time,
both the interpretation of the results with a set of objective data
obtained on the dyno. E 'be a need for appropriate tools that
become part of the design stessa.Per ensure containment of the
weights, necessary objective in aviation, it is essential to focus
on the manufacturing techniques and materials to be used. It is
therefore of high priority to optimize the processes that underlie
the production of aircraft components.
The success in automotive diesel engines of latest generation
common rail direct injection, suggested the idea of using this
type of engines in the aeronautical field, thanks to the following
advantages: first, these engines have a specific weight, frontal
area and power consumption lower than gasoline
They are also characterized by low CO2 and NOx, the diesel does not
contain lead or other toxic substances and there are problems of
The high efficiency at part load combined with a fuel cost
significantly less than that of the gasoline allow a considerable
economy of operation.
However, the use at high altitude in low pressure of the combustion
air inlet is a condition of abnormal operation compared to the use
automotive and requires careful consideration.
This application presents a number of issues to be resolved, which
focuses on the research in question.
First, the automobile engine requires structural adjustments and
the level of external components to be subjected to severe tests,
for which you must create an ad hoc test structures.
Furthermore, the operation at high altitude has some issues that
need to be simulated using a sophisticated exhaust system /
By implementing a sophisticated data acquisition system will be
possible to measure the quantities of interest in the game and then
optimize the response of centralina.Nell 'scope of work for
materials used in aircraft, it is a strong need to optimize
'use of machines and systems for industrial processes using the
most advanced technologies, mechanical, electronic, software and
This also in view of the growing attention from major markets
around the world who appreciate its advanced technology,
reliability, security, processing precision, efficiency, care and
attention to construction details aesthetics.
