Aeropropulsive Design Optimization of a Turboelectric Boundary Layer Ingestion Propulsion System [STUB]

Abstract: Boundary Layer Ingestion (BLI) for aircraft applications was first proposed by Apollo Smith and Howard Roberts in a 1947 paper that studied the use of jet intakes embedded in the boundary layer as a means to maintain laminar flow and reduce aircraft drag. While the use of BLI in aviation didn’t catch on it was heavily studied and utilized for marine applications. In 1993 interest in BLI applications to aircraft design was renewed when Leyroy Smith published novel work using a boundary layer a…
