High-bypass engines of the future

02.2018 | In the EU technology program ENOVAL, MTU Aero Engines is developing innovative low-pressure turbine technology for the engines of tomorrow. Very high bypass ratios of up to 16:1 will make engines quieter and more efficient, with lower emissions.


The future is geared

11.2017 | MTU’s Director Engineering Advanced Programs talked about international knowledge sharing on the future of air-breathing engines at this year’s ISABE conference.


Coatings protect engine components

05.2017 | Ultra-thin layers of metallic or ceramic materials protect against heat, erosion and chemical agents. In the quest to design more efficient propulsion systems that can be operated efficiently with higher combustion temperatures, thermal coatings have become a key technology.


V2500: Minor repair job—major effect

05.2017 | In the case of the high-pressure compressor for the V2500 engine, thin vibration damping rings were significantly reducing the service life. This was solved with tongue-and-groove joints to connect the wire ends and applying a spark-free coating to the housing walls.
