ENODISE (ENabling Optimized Disruptive Airframe-Propulsion Integration Concepts) is an enabler project aimed at reducing aircraft gaseous and noise emissions by improving the integration of the propulsion system with the airframe. ENODISE will investigate the main propulsion-airframe integration issues at low TRL and build a solid basis of knowledge and methods based on simplified but representative configurations, permitting to assess a variety of integration concepts.
Pipistrel Vertical Solutions is a project partner and WP7 leader, and our role is to construct a multidisciplinary (Aero-Acoustic) optimization routine using a combination of in-house, partners’ and proprietary code.
In the second step we will use this procedure to design and optimize a Distribured Electric Propulsion (DEP) system of a wing and three propellers.
The third step will be to build a 1:1 scale of such DEP system and measure it’s acoustic footprint.
The fourth and final step will be to lead an effort of consolidating all the acquired knowledge in the project and to scale and extrapolate it toward the future full-scale aircraft.
