Consideration of Performance and Cost in Future Military Aircraft Engines 700272

Development of methods for reducing engine costs may offer better opportunities for improving the cost effectiveness of future military aircraft than do projected engine performance improvements. A technique for evaluating the worth of both cost and performance parameters is described and a review given of methods currently used for optimizing these parameters during the engine design process. Several areas where development effort may offer considerable potential for cost reduction are identified.
