Composite Nacelles

Rohr Industries, Inc. is currently researching composite jet nacelle engines. As composites can only tolerate heat up to 350 degrees, heat flow is a major concern. The company employs TRASYS to predict how much heat will be generated and how fast it will be dissipated under different conditions. Developed at JSC, TRASYS enables Rohr to realize considerable savings on nacelle design costs.
