NASA REFAN PROGRAM STATUS

1975-02-01
750592
The objective of the refan program is to demonstrate the technical feasibility of substantially reducing the noise levels of existing JT8D powered aircraft. The program consists of the design, manufacturing and testing of the refan engines and modified nacelles and airplanes. Experimental testing has been completed for the refan engine both at sea level and at altitude conditions. Ground testing for the B727 side- and center-engine installations and flight testing of the DC-9 with refan engines and acoustic nacelles have been performed. Analyses of the test results are in progress. Preliminary results presented in this paper show that substantial noise reductions were achieved.
