TILTOp

TILTOp aimed at developing a methodology to be used for an efficient multi-objective design optimization of the airframe-engine integration in the ERICA tiltrotor nacelle using advanced numerical methodologies. Both the engine intake and exhaust geometries were optimized in order to achieve a significant reduction in the installation losses.
