Leaving on a Jet Plane - Simulation of a Jet Engine Thrust Reverser

Leaving on a Jet Plane - Simulation of a Jet Engine Thrust Reverser

Sponsored by Mentor Graphics

Jet engines do not only propel a commercial plane to its cruising speed and maintain it at that speed, but are also used to slow it down again just after touch down on the runway. This is achieved by redirecting the airflow towards the flight direction, not fully, but to a certain degree. In this article we review CFD simulations of a jet engine thrust reverser.
