NARI Selects RHRC for 2nd Phase of TeDP Research


March 26, 2014 - Rolling Hills Research Corporation has been awarded a Phase II research program by the NASA Aeronautics Research Institute, under the new Leading Edge Aeronautics Research for NASA (LEARN) program.  The RHRC program is entitled "Turbo-electric Distributed Propulsion Test Bed Aircraft," and will continue building a wind tunnel and CFD database for a test bed aircraft using TeDP.  The Phase I program involved CFD design studies and the design, fabrication, and wind tunnel testing of a TeDP concept with 3 independent electric ducted fans.  The Phase II program expands the study to include the 3D effects of a TeDP installation on a wing, including power affects on lift and pitching moment.


The results of the Phase I study can be downloaded here.
