Protection of aircraft engines against particles (incl. volcanic ash)
|Coordinator||Volvo Aero Aktiebolag|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 785 000|
|Project duration||December 2010 - June 2012|
Purpose and goal
Air traffic problems due to volcanic ash have shown the need to detect particles in aero engine air intake. The project is a short and innovative project with the aim to find solutions to this problem. The project will investigate the possibilities to detect particles and how the aero engine should handle the problem with particles in the air intake. The expected results from the project are study reports with review of potential technologies and concept proposal.
