Leveraging design space exploration to improve aircraft ECS system performance
Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Modern commercial aircraft environmental control systems (ECS) contain a complex and interrelated set of subsystems that must work together to ensure the performance of the aircraft. These systems are expensive to run, necessitating the need to improve energy efficiency while providing the best possible customer experience.

An example of this is the use of bleed air from the engine core flow to pressurize and heat the main cabin, as well as supply hot air to the aircraft's anti-icing system. Prior to distribution, this air is mixed with cold air from the engine bypass to achieve the appropriate temperature for these subsystems. Uniform and thorough mixing of the core and bypass air is critical to maintaining subsystem performance and is monitored via sensors.

For this On-Demand event, we will discuss this and other examples of how innovative organizations are using design space - including the parametric optimization of a proposed static mixer. Learn how you can leverage CATIA for the parametric CAD and STAR-CCM+® with the aid of Optimate+™ to perform the simulation and design exploration, respectively.
