ADVANCED ENVIRONMENTAL COOLING CONCEPTS FOR SUPERSONIC AIRCRAFT
A study was conducted to compare the operating penalty of advanced closed-loop and regenerative open-loop air cycle concepts using fuel heat sinks with current technology bootstrap air cycle systems utilizing ram air heat sinks. The results indicate substantial reductions in fuel operating penalty can be attained with associated lower aircraft design gross weight.
