WP5 – Aircraft Engines

The work package is devoted to the integration of the novel CAE technologies developed in WP2, WP3, WP4 into the design workflow for the MOTOR Product aircraft engines.



  • To apply the newly developed geometry modelling techniques from WP2 to optimize the shape of the flow passage within aircraft engines in a user-friendly and fully-automated manner
  • To redesign a Turning-Mid-Turbine-Frame (TMTF) with a significant axial shortening while maintaining the overall pressure loss and the influx for the downstream Low-Pressure-Turbine (LPT)

Description of work

  • Task 5.1: Volumetric parameterization of the flow passage making use of multivariate adaptive spline technologies and efficient and flexible transformation from topologically equivalent templates
  • Task 5.2: Integration of smooth free-form volumetric deformation technologies into MTU’s automated shape optimization framework
  • Task 5.3: Redesign of the Turning-Mid-Turbine-Frame (TMTF) using the fully-automated shape optimization framework and applying hot-cold-transformation to the operating-condition-optimized engine part to deform it to the corresponding initial ‘cold’ shape that is manufactured in the CAM process
