After waiting three decades for enabling technology to catch up with its design ideas, GE-Aviation is deeply embedding itself in composite. The GEnx-1B has won about a 65 percent share of the Boeing as well as its combustor lining and fuel nozzles— will offer operators of. TAPS II Combustor. Final Report.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Among the possible factors cited was “‘unique convective weather systems’ such as unusually large thunderstorms reaching high altitudes.

Once again, the Group is putting its full weight and the complementary benefits of its global MRO network at the disposal of its clients. Both engines enable the move towards the More Electric Aircraftthat is, the concept of replacing previously hydraulic and pneumatic systems with electrical ones to reduce weight, increase efficiency, and reduce maintenance requirements.

To reduce fuel burn, the Retrieved June 10, To reduce maintenance cost and increase engine life, spools with lower parts count combutsor achieved by using blisks in some stages, low blade counts in other stages and by using fewer stages; internal engine temperatures are reduced due to more efficient cooling techniques and debris extraction within the low-pressure compressor protects the high-pressure compressor.

General Electric GEnx

Boeing wanted to allow changing between alternative engines within 24 hours, but had not worked it out by In Marcha GEnx-powered Boeing had its first in-flight shut down in operation when a JAL flight had to divert to Honolulu after an oil pressure alert, bringing its in-flight shut down rate to 1 perhours.


The pilots were able to land the plane safely but the engines were found to have sustained damage.

The GEnx and the Rolls-Royce Trent were selected by Boeing following a run-off between the three ckmbustor engine manufacturers.

General Electric began initial test runs of the bleedless GEnx variant on 19 March During the spring and summer ofGE learned of four F freighters that suffered icing in their engines at altitudes of 40, feet and above. Worldwide the Dreamliner fleet is growing and therefore the GEnx engine share is increasing as well.


Fan blades have steel alloy leading edges and the composite fan case reduces thermal expansion. State-of-the-art industrial resources With this new-generation engine, disassembly and assembly operations require much stringency. This page was last edited on 27 Decembercombstor Retrieved from ” https: The engine carries composite technology [5] into the fan case.

High-bypass combsutor engines General Electric aircraft engines Turbofan engines — It will also have a smaller overall diameter than the initial model to accommodate installation on the The laser inspection carried out using the Faro 3D arm software that we have developed, which scans the targeted areas before modelling them in real time in 3D, is the perfect response to this requirement.

The GEnx uses some technology from the GE90 turbofan [4]including composite fan blades, and the smaller core featured in earlier variants of the engine. Introduced in late on a freighter, Cargolux surpassed one million flight hours in early As mentioned above, the company aims to ramp up repair processes for combustion chamber components, in addition to assembly and disassembly operations.

Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance – Engine Parts Repair

Located in northern France, the future site will implement high-tech metallurgical processes and innovative management principles that leave plenty of scope for staff empowerment and creativity. The most serious incident involved an AirBridgeCargo freighter; on July 31, while at an altitude of 41, feet over Chinathe flight crew noted two engines surging while a third lost substantial power.


General Electric aircraft engines. Unlike the initial version, for thethis version has a traditional bleed air system to power internal pneumatic and ventilation systems. One failure was caused by an assembly problem, which led to inspections of all other engines then in service.

In earlyof combuetor for the Bselected the GEnx Boeing Boeing Dreamliner. Retrieved 18 October Commons category link from Wikidata. Retrieved 6 October To reduce weight, it features 18 composite fan blades, a composite fan case and titanium cobmustor stage 6 and 7 low-pressure turbine blades. Consequently, CRMA has developed an innovative industrial resource, which is unique in the world, tailored to draconian inspection requirements.

GEnx Development Emphasizes Composites, Combustor Technology

In fact, triggered by offering its customers a wide repair capability, CRMA decided to dedicate a development engineer for this project and started working on developing GEnx repairs early The GEnx is derived from the GE90 with a fan diameter of Developing innovative repairs for engine parts is key when it comes to control engine maintenance costs.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. It has a 10 stage high-pressure compressor and is quieter, helped by larger, more efficient fan blades. In the near future CRMA will extend repairs capability to combustion chamber dome’s deflectors and replacement of the thermal barrier gnx.
