Abstract:

Turbine engine accessory drive techniques were investigated to establish potential systems for a lightweight low profile package. The frame of reference was provided by three classes of advanced engines for the 1975 to 1980 time period the 1 low bypass turbofan fighter, 2 high bypass turbofan transport, and 3 small turbofan remote-piloted vehicle. Design study information is presented and used to establish a ranking of candidate system attractiveness against defined and weighted criteria. Conceptual design drawings, depicting a selected system for each study engine class, are provided and development recommendations are given. Modified author abstract
