Rolls-Royce completes construction of the fuel-efficient UltraFan engine

Rolls-Royce has finished building its UltraFan demonstration engine, which could improve jet fuel efficiency by up to 10 percent.

The engine features a 12-foot (140-inch) propeller system, the largest in the world, and is designed to run on 100 percent sustainable aviation fuel.

It has now been moved from the workshop to Testbed 80 – a £90 million ($109.5 million) facility in Derby, built specifically for the UltraFan.

The British company now hopes to conduct its first test run early next year, which could lead to the technology being applied in its existing family of Trent engines.

What is the Ultravan drive?

The Ultrafan is a demonstration engine with a 12-foot (140 in) propeller system that cost over £500 million to build.

It is designed to run on sustainable aviation fuels, and may help improve aviation fuel efficiency by up to 10 percent when installed.

The UltraFan features carbon composite fan blades with a titanium shell to help protect them from object damage and bird strikes.

These materials help reduce its weight and increase fuel efficiency.

It also has a new power gearbox, a lighter combustion afterburner and an Advance3 core architecture that helps deliver very high propulsion efficiency.

“Seeing an UltraFan demonstrator get together and get ready for testing in the Testbed 80 is a great way to end the year,” said Chris Chorlton, President, Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace.

We have all been waiting for this moment, which is an important milestone for the program and for the team that worked on it.

The next phase will be to power the UltraFan for the first time with 100 percent sustainable aviation fuel in 2023, proving that the technology is ready to support more sustainable flight in the future.

UltraFan cost more than £500m to complete, thanks to its combination of the latest technology and materials.

The UltraFan delivered 64 megawatts of power in tests, an aviation industry record, and equal to the requirements of a city the size of Bath.

Once increased, it will be capable of a thrust range of between 25,000 lb (11,000 kg) and more than 100,000 lb (45,000 kg).

Rolls-Royce intends to begin building narrow-body and wide-body aircraft equipped with UltraFan engines in the 2030s.

Rolls-Royce intends to begin building narrow-body and wide-body aircraft equipped with UltraFan engines in the 2030s.

Before that, the manufacturer plans to start equipping the engines of existing Trent aircraft with UltraFan technologies to reduce emissions.

The new engine provides a 25 percent increase in fuel efficiency compared to the first generation turbofans.

It also produces 40 percent less NOx, 35 percent less noise, and almost zero non-volatile particulate matter on cruises.

The sustainable aviation fuel that the UltraFan will run on uses 80 percent less carbon throughout its life cycle than conventional jet fuel.

Rolls-Royce is currently testing its other engines with 10 percent blends of this fuel, to help run them in stages.

This isn’t Rolls-Royce’s first attempt to improve the sustainability of its aircraft.

Last month, the company successfully trialled a hydrogen-powered jet engine.

The engine used was a converted Rolls-Royce AE 2100-A, and was powered and powered by hydrogen extracted from water using renewable energy.

Hydrogen itself is considered a “green” fuel, because when it is burned in air it only produces water, unlike greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide.

Although there are still some unresolved issues before planes take off with green fuels, the experiment is the first of its kind in the world and is considered a “new landmark for aviation”.

Airplanes are typically powered by fossil fuel kerosene, and the Boeing 737-400 currently produces about 200 pounds (90 kg) of carbon dioxide per passenger per hour.

Air travel is responsible for 3.5 percent of human impact on global warming, which is why many companies are looking for environmentally friendly solutions.

Rolls-Royce is also studying battery technology for its all-electric plane, which can fly for 30 minutes on a single charge.

These projects were likely prompted by the “Race to Zero” campaign in which the company was involved.

This means it has committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 by meeting a set of stringent criteria, including taking immediate action.

Achieving net zero by 2050 “at the latest” is in line with the scientific consensus on limiting warming to 2.7°F (1.5°C), set out in the Paris Agreement in 2015.

Santa’s sleigh would need an engine like NASA’s Saturn V rocket

If there are any unbelieving kids out there who don’t believe in Father Christmas, a new scientific study might change their minds.

Physicists say Santa’s sleigh could fly if it had some key modifications, including a pair of wings similar to those of a commercial airliner.

Santa’s sleigh might need an engine with thrust equivalent to that produced by NASA’s Saturn V rocket or 150 Boeing 747-400s, they calculated.

It would also have to be moving at 12,300 mph (5,500 meters per second) — about 10 times the speed of sound — in order to generate enough lift.
