Frigate Ecojet announces second phase of aerodynamic testing in Germany
Frigate Ecojet and Thyssenkrupp System Engineering signed an agreement for the conclusion of an aerodynamic tests of the program at the’European Transonic Windtunnel (ETW) in Germany. The major goal of the tests is to identify the aerodynamic parameters that best represent the real flight conditions.
"The first stage of testing to Central Institute of Aerohydrodynamics in Moscow in 2013 He confirmed the first State-specific,” said Vladimir Chernousov, Chief Designer of Frigate program Ecojet. "We have improved aerodynamic design in order to improve these specifications. Throughout the project we've tried to use the most advanced technologies available in the field of current aeronautical engineering. This is why we chose to conduct the second phase of wind tunnel testing at low temperature in Germany.”
The tests will run at the European Transonic Windtunnel in Cologne, a structure with cutting edge systems. The tests that will be performed in Germany will lead to the use of a closed aerodynamic circuit contained within a pressurized casing in stainless steel internally insulated. A compressor with an output of approximately 50 MW nitrogen gases circulate inside the circuit to simulate typical temperatures of high altitude flight (-50
