Some Aspects of Prop-Fan Propulsion Systems Analysis 821358

Optimization of a Prop-Fan propulsion system for a Mach 0.8, 120 passenger commercial transport has shown the need for relatively high levels of overall pressure ratio, combustor exit temperature, propeller tip speed and propeller disk loading to achieve lowest fuel burn and direct operating costs. Comparison of this optimized Prop-Fan propulsion system with an equivalent technology turbofan showed it to have significant mission fuel burn and direct operating cost advantages.
