ENODISE is a low-to-mid-TRL enabler project, meant to develop the knowledge, data, tools, and methods that are necessary to understand, model, and optimize engine-airframe aerodynamic and acoustic installation effects. The focus is on the following innovative architectures bringing a tighter integration of the propulsive system with the wing, fuselage, or control surfaces:
- partly buried engines, where boundary layer ingestion affects the aerodynamic and acoustic performance;
- distributed propulsion systems mounted on fixed or tilted pylons, in puller/pusher configurations on a fixed-wing airframe or on a control surface to achieve vectorial thrust;
- multi-copter configurations with co- or contra-rotating tandem rotors.
