CIAM to present developments in future engine technologies at MAKS-2019
22 August 2019From 27 August to 1 September 2019, the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2019 will take place in Zhukovsky, Moscow region.
The Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM) will present its latest developments at the joint exposition of the National Research Center "Zhukovsky Institute".
CIAM will demonstrate scientific and engineering solutions for improvement of modern engines as well as technologies of the future.
The main theme of the CIAM’s exposition is electric aircraft engines and hybrid power plants. The Institute will showcase a flying laboratory model for testing a hybrid power plant demonstrator, a 500 kW (679 hp) electric motor and a 60 kW (80 hp) all-electric hydrogen fuel cell power plant demonstrator.
One of the CIAM’s ‘premieres’ at MAKS-2019 is an experimental TRD-60 gas turbine engine demonstrator of a modular design with a small quantity of components. New technologies are being tested on it to ensure the competitiveness of advanced small-size gas turbine engines. With the TRD-60 core engine as the baseline, engine designs for light aircraft and helicopters have already been developed. The light weight of the engine will allow the aircraft to take on board more payload and, due to the engine characteristics, to rise higher and move faster.
A part of the CIAM exhibition will be dedicated to components, modules and structures of aircraft engines made from new materials. These solutions provide significant gains in weight, size and service life. A wide range of products from composite materials and additively manufactured structures will be demonstrated.
An interactive program will allow the Airshow visitors to look into a digital prototype of a 1:1 scale air intake device of an aircraft engine using VR technology. Combining results of supercomputer modeling of gas-dynamic processes with the 3D model of the air intake allows to demonstrate the influence of geometry on gas-dynamic flows in the engine.
We invite you to visit the joint exposition of the National Research Center “Zhukovsky Institute” in D2 Hall to get acquainted with the latest developments in aviation technology.
