The AMBEC project has received funding from the Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme

under grant agreement No 785493

ABOUT

The AMBEC project aims to develop a reliable experimentally validated methodology able to calculate heat transfer coefficients and fluid distribution in different zones of aircraft engine bearing chamber. The methodology will be used for improvement of the design of compact bearing chambers in hot environment.

Proposed concept consists in combination of advanced CFD simulation and experimental investigation of fluid flows and heat transfer phenomena in bearing chamber.

Application of AMBEC methodology will help aircraft manufacturers to cut time and efforts required for design and development of innovative compact bearing chambers and ensure reliable operation of bearings in hot environment at lower oil and secondary air flow rates.

The project outputs will feed the development of LP spool bearing chamber for UHPE Demonstrator developed by the Safran Aircraft Engines for SMR aircraft in the frame of CS2 Engine ITD activities.

The project is being implemented from     01 May 2018 till 30 April 2021
