This engine incorporates twin fuel injectors for improved fuel economy; Dualjet technology positions the fuel injectors very close to the engine inlet valves and allows for a finer fuel mixture which in turn provides a more effective transfer into the engine.
Presolicitation: Sole source announcement to support the v-22 improved inlet solution engine inlet barrier filter effort
It is a technology leader in the manufacture of aircraft engine inlet lip skins with legacy programme positions on the Boeing 747-8 and KC-46 tanker.
Using Dualjet technology, that positions the fuel injectors very close to the engine inlet valves, allows for a finer fuel atomisation (or mixture) which in turn provides a more effective transfer into the engine.
Though partially automated health assessment systems have been integrated into daily maintenance routines, many inspections are still conducted manually, including inspecting engine inlet and exhaust cavities.
The current aerodynamic design for hypersonic vehicles is mainly for the demonstration vehicles which focused on minimizing resistance and the optimal matching between airframe and engine, and the forebody and engine inlet integrated design is the key issues for the configuration design.
During a daily inspection, found a three inch and four inch crack at the 6 o'clock position of the engine inlet cowling on the #2 engine of aircraft 388.
Inspection revealed significant hail damage; radome, nose cameras, wings, tails, engine inlet, and radiator all experienced extensive weather damage.
The results confer that the differential pressure controller producer gas carburetor is able to maintain optimal air to fuel ratio even at 100% load throw off condition and can deliver stoichiometric ratio to engine inlet manifold at transient load operation.
The impeller compresses air entering the engine inlet and delivers it to the combustion chamber.
Airframe tests include airframe/drive system/rotor stability and development; power plant and airframe structure performance; load and vibration limits; drive system torsion stability; fuel, fire detection and extinguishing systems; maximum and minimum temperature monitoring plus heat and cooling surveys; icing systems development; engine inlet distortion; ground and air resonance; and radar cross section testing.
Similarly, engine designers would like to have a quick transition to turbulence to have a turbulent flow at an engine inlet.
