Reduce Fuel Burn With a Dose of BLI
Washington DC (SPX) Mar 15, 2017
It sounds like a cause of heart burn. Instead, Boundary Layer Ingestion - or BLI - is a promising idea NASA researchers are studying to reduce fuel burn in jet engines, thus reducing emissions and the cost of operating the aircraft. At its simplest: With BLI, an airplane's engines are located near the rear of the aircraft so that air flowing over the aircraft body becomes part of the mix o ... more
