Project overview

Morson Projects were appointed by BAE Systems to support them with the Structural Design & Analysis, Systems Engineering & Integration and Software Development for the CFD model of a VIP aircraft.


Our expert team worked closely with BAE Systems to meet their requirements of:

  • The retro-fit of inerting system on VIP aircraft
  • Minimisation of time-to-inert
  • Maintenance of inert ullage under emergency descent condition
  • Minimisation of flight test programme
  • CFD modelling

Project execution included:

  • Perfect mixing model used for initial sizing
  • CFD using CAD geometry for accurate O2 conc. prediction
  • CFD meshes using up to 15 million cells
  • Output – Number and position of inert gas nozzles & optimisation of gas flow from each nozzle.
  • Accuracy of Fuel Burn Modelling and Inert Gas insertion reduced Flight tests and helped achieve Certification.
