Derwent Aviation has introduced a redesign of existing aircraft engines which could reduce carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions. The new design is called the Dual Drive Booster (DDB).
In conventional aircraft engines, a low-pressure shaft directly drives the booster compressor. The DDB uses both the low-pressure shaft and a high-pressure shaft to drive the booster. The shafts provide input through an epicyclic gearbox, while the output drives the booster compressor.
The design i…
