1.) CO2: minus 50% per passenger kilometre by 2020, with an engine contribution of 15 to 20%,

2.) NOx: minus 80% by 2020 and

3.) Reduce other emissions: soot, CO, UHC, SOx, particulates.

The major technical subjects to be addressed by the project are:

1.) Innovative compressor for the ultra-high pressure ratio cycle (OPR 70) and associated thermal management technologies,

2.) Combustor-turbine interaction for higher turbine efficiency & ultra-high OPR cycles,

3.) Low NOx combustion systems for ultra-high OPR cycles,

4.) Advanced structures to enable high OPR engines & integration with heat exchangers,

5.) Reduced cooling requirements and stiffer structures for turbo-machinery efficiency, 6.) HP/IP compressor stability control.

The first four subjects will enable the engine industry to extend their design space beyond the overall pressure ratio of 50, which is the practical limit in the latest engines. Rig testing is required to validate the respective designs as well as the simulation tools to be developed.

The last two subjects have already been researched on the last two subjects by NEWAC. The technology developed in NEWAC (mainly component and / or breadboard validation in a laboratory environment) will be driven further in * LEMCOTEC *for UHPR core engines. These technologies will be validated at a higher readiness level of up to TRL 5 (component and / or breadboard validation in a relevant environment) for ultra-high OPR core-engines.

The objective of the research program is to design, optimize and develop a space plasma thruster based on helicon-radio-frequency technology and its application to a nano-satellite for attitude and position control. Moreover a detailed feasibility study will be also conducted to evaluate the possibility of using the plasma thruster to heat and decompose a secondary propellant. The feasibility study will asses the possibility of building up a combined-two-mode-thruster able to operate in the low-thrust high-efficiency plasma-mode and high-thrust low-efficiency secondary-propellant-plasma-enhanced mode. Only the plasma thruster will be developed and fully tested during this study. The main characteristics of the thruster are: Power 50 W Weight within 1.5 kg Thrust >1.5 mN Specific Impulse (Isp) >1200 s The program will develop thought the following steps:

- Deep numerical-theoretical investigation through dedicated plasma-simulation tools.

- Extensive experimental campaign to validate codes, to investigate the physics phenomena involved and to proof thruster performance.

- The development of a thruster-prototype to be mounted on board of a mini-satellite to demonstrate technology feasibility. -The study of all the critical issues related to the application to a mini-satellite.

- The design and manufacturing of the mini-satellite mock up including all critical components.

- Analysis of scaling law to lower and higher power. As a final results of the project, a detailed analysis will be conducted in order to evaluate the possible application of the thruster in space missions requiring low thrust accurate attitude and position control.

As numerical tests show, the new methods are more efficient, but maintaining the same order of convergence, than the conventional Lagrange?Galerkin (LG) methods when they are used with either P 1 or P 2 finite elements. The error analysis reveals that: (1) when the problem is diffusion dominated the convergence of the modified LG methods is of the form O(h m+1 + h 2 + ?t q ), q = 1 or 2 and m being the degree of the polynomials of the finite elements; (2) when the problem is convection dominated and the time step ?t is large enough the convergence is of the form O(hm+1?t+h2+?tq) ; (3) as in case (2) but with ?t small, then the order of convergence is now O(h m + h 2 + ?t q ); (4) when the problem is convection dominated the convergence is uniform with respect to the diffusion parameter ? (x, t), so that when ? ? 0 and the forcing term is also equal to zero the error tends to that of the pure convection problem. Our error analysis shows that the conventional LG methods exhibit the same error behavior as the MLG methods but without the term h 2. Numerical experiments support these theoretical results.Numerische Mathematik 0029-599X1,388Datos JCR del ao 2010601638ABRIL<Autor: Laura Saavedra Lago//Autor: Rodolfo Bermejo Bermejo//PSupersonic regime of the Hall-magnetohydrodynamics resistive tearing instabilityAn earlier analysis of the Hall-magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) tearing instability [E. Ahedo and J. J. Ramos, Plasma Phys. Controlled Fusion 51, 055018 (2009)] is extended to cover the regime where the growth rate becomes comparable or exceeds the sound frequency. Like in the previous subsonic work, a resistive, two-fluid Hall-MHD model with massless electrons and zero-Larmor-radius ions is adopted and a linear stability analysis about a force-free equilibrium in slab geometry is carried out. A salient feature of this supersonic regime is that the mode eigenfunctions become intrinsically complex, but the growth rate remains purely real. Even more interestingly, the dispersion relation remains of the same form as in the subsonic regime for any value of the instability Mach number, provided only that the ion skin depth is sufficiently small for the mode ion inertial layer width to be smaller than the macroscopic lengths, a generous bound that scales like a positive power of the Lundquist numberPhysics of Plasmas 1070-664X2,14719072519-1072519-7JULIOAutor: Eduardo Ahedo Galilea//YTwo-dimensional plasma expansion in a magnetic nozzle: Separation due to electron inertiaA previous axisymmetric model of the supersonic expansion of a collisionless, hot plasma in a divergent magnetic nozzle is extended here in order to include electron-inertia effects. Up to dominant order on all components of the electron velocity, electron momentum equations still reduce to three conservation laws. Electron inertia leads to outward electron separation from the magnetic streamtubes. The progressive plasma filling of the adjacent vacuum region is consistent with electron-inertia being part of finite electron Larmor radius effects, which increase downstream and eventually demagnetize the plasma. Current ambipolarity is not fulfilled and ion separation can be either outwards or inwards of magnetic streamtubes, depending on their magnetization. Electron separation penalizes slightly the plume efficiency and is larger for plasma beams injected with large pressure gradients. An alternative nonzero electron-inertia model [E. Hooper, J. Propul. Power 9, 757 (1993)] based on cold plasmas and current ambipolarity, which predicts inwards electron separation, is discussed critically. A possible competition of the gyroviscous force with electron-inertia effects is commented briefly.083501-1083501-9AGOSTOBUnsteady response of hydrogen and methane flames to pressure wavesCOMBUSTION AND FLAME 0010-21802,747159"10.1016/j.combustflame.2012.01.0175189419084/51 THERMODYNAMICS (SCI); 20/78 ENERGY & FUELS (SCI); 15/133 ENGINEERING, CHEMICAL (SCI); 3/86 ENGINEERING, MULTIDISCIPLINARY (SCI) Autor: Jose Carlos Graa Otero//[Autor: carmen jimenez //Autor: joel quinard //Autor: heiko schmidt //Autor: geoff searby //ISSN o ISBNEntidad relacionadaLugar del congresoIntellectual Property RocksEuropean Commission>European Enterprise Network Annual Conference, Paphos (Cyprus)Autor: Miguel Hermanns //PIntelliGlass ... o como emprender desde la universidad y no morir en el intento `Ponencia invitada presentada en el FORO DE UNIVERSIDADES: LA NEGOCIACIN EN LA CREACIN DE EBTS ,Parque Cientfico Universidad de Valladolid ValladolidXOn Global Linear Instability Analysis of Hypersonic Flow Around a Model Re-Entry Vehicle@Department of Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of ScienceINDIAZ1st International Symposium on Hypersonic Aerodynamics: Recent Advances, Bangalore (India)6Autor: Vassilios Theofilis //Autor: Miguel Hermanns //EstadoReferencia Patente PrioritariaEn explotacinLicenciatariosFecha solicitudReferencia PCTReferencia EPOReferencia EEUUReferencia JaponTitulares aparte de la UPMIActive transparent or translucent enclosures with energy control capacity ConcedidaP200700476 de EspaaIntelliGlass S.L. 21/08/2009 12/545,510>Autor: Juan Antonio Hernandez Ramos//Autor: Miguel Hermanns //iAutor: Fernando del Ama Gonzalo Universidad San Pablo CEU//Autor: Csar Javier Hernndez Jimnez Iberia//Entidad premiadaEntidad concedenteFechaLugar donde se premiKAccsit al premio Madri+d 2012 a la mejor patente de la Comunidad de Madrid!Universidad Politcnica de MadridComunidad de Madrid 15/06/2012MadridNombre Apellidos categoraentidadTutor ALEJANDROSEVILLA SANTIAGOBECARIO OFICIAL NO PIFAmable Lian MartinezSANTIAGO ENRIQUEIBAEZ LEON(PIF - PERSONAL INVESTIGADOR EN FORMACIONVICTOR MUNTEAN .LAURA SAAVEDRA LAGO L.D.
