Design of ACHEON Thrust and Vector Propulsion System 2015-01-2425

This paper focuses on the calculation methodology of the thrust of a ACHEON propulsion system, which is based on Coanda effect deflection of thrust. It defines a calculation methodology based on integral equations. The proposed methodology allows an effective calculation of the performances and the force applied on the airplane by such a propulsion system. It will also allow an effective design of the nozzle system and will implement also internal elements with an accurate definition of frictional losses. Outstanding results have been obtained together with general rules for implanting ACHEON propulsion inside an aircraft.
