Abstract

This paper describes an effort to investigate and better define the capabilities of a modern mathematical solver in predicting the in on-design performance of a turbo fan engine PW4000. The results will validate the use of commercially available Object Oriented Programming (OOP) with C++ software tools for these problems and lead to a better understanding of the flow phenomenon within the inlet to the outlet in the engine. Better engine designs that enhance design-point operation and improve performance could result once confidence is gained in applying performance analysis tools to the component section of the PW4000 engine design process.
