  • High machining technology is needed for manufacturing jet engines for use in aircrafts. To reduce errors in the jet engine machining process, the machining companies of aircraft engines have introduced the CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) technology. However, to create a CAM model, the operator must manually conduct machining operations based on a CAD (computer-aided design) model, which can take several days or weeks. To solve this problem, this study proposes a method for automatically generating a CAM model for machining holes in the parts, using a CAD model. In this method, the features of the hole are recognized from the CAD model and translated into machining operations to be used with the CATIA program. Additionally, a prototype system was implemented and the proposed method was experimentally verified.

  • Manufacturers of aircraft engines have introduced computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software to operate and control computerized numerical control (CNC) machine tools. However, the generation of a CAM model is a time consuming and error-prone task since machining procedure and operational details are manually defined. For the automatic generation of a CAM model, feature recognition techniques have been widely studied. However, their recognition coverage is limited so that complex shapes such as a jet engine cannot be fully developed. This study presents a novel approach to quickly generate a CAM model from a CAD model using shape search techniques. Once an operator sets a machining operation as a reference operation, the same shapes as the shapes referenced by the operation are searched. The reference operation is copied to the positions of the searched shapes. The proposed method was verified through experiments with a jet engine compressor case.

  • On the basis of the paper described herein, rotor blade failure in the compressor, gas generator turbine, and power turbine and the resulting internal damage is contained within the peripheral hardware and engine casings. For the safety reason, the blade containment was regulated by aviation authority. For reducing the weight of the case, a heaviest single component of a jet engine, the blade containment capability was analyzed by engine manufacturer. The procedure established for containment design involves an energy balance method based on the comparison of the kinetic energy of released blade and the strain energy of the containment zone. The LS-DYNA simulation can also be introduced to predict behavior of released blade and case. All of the analytic and numerical result are described ${\ldots}$.

  • Performance analysis of the turboshaft engines for combined rotorcraft was executed. A tip jet and a ducted fan aircraft were selected for combined rotorcraft application. Gasturb 12 software was used for turboshaft engine performance analysis. In the results, maximum required power for the tip jet engine is about 1,600 hp class and maximum required power for the ducted fan engine is about 1,000 hp class at the required aircraft mission. This is due to the additional power of the auxiliary compressor to get a bleed air mass flow rate for the tip jet operation. At the same time, fuel consumption of the tip jet aircraft is 2.8 times larger than ducted fan case. Therefore ducted fan type aircraft is more efficient than tip jet aircraft in terms of fuel economy.
