Experimental and numerical data supporting open fan concepts

Open fan engine concepts could reduce weight and emissions relative to conventional ducted fans, but they may be noisier. The EU-funded PANDORA project will address this gap with experimental data and advanced models.

Climate, Energy and Mobility

The team will collect experimental noise and performance data from an unducted single fan for short/medium-range aircraft.

Towards a silent and ultra-low local air pollution aircraft

Regarding the reduction of local air quality (LAQ) from NOx and particulate matter (PM), the selected technologies may consider sustainable drop-in and non-drop-in fuel options.
