Abstract
An increasing emphasis on energy eciency in aircraft systems has in recent<br/>years led to greater interest in integrated design and optimisation within<br/>the industry. New tools are needed to understand, compare and manage energy<br/>use of an aircraft throughout its design and operation. This thesis describes a new methodology to meet this need: aircraft exergy mapping.<br/>The choice of exergy, a 2nd law metric, to describe the energy ows is fundamental to the methodology, providing numerous advantages over energy alone.<br/>The basis for time-variant exergy analysis, a necessity when analysing aircraft systems in detail, is established. A set of software ...
