Fuel-efficient jet engines are developed by many companies. In the conventional design approach of a jet engine, many parameters are investigated independently. Consequently, a developed jet engine by this approach meets conventional design criteria but there is still room for improvement of engine performance. In this research, the new design approach of a jet engine that integrates these design objectives is developed and performance of a jet engine is evaluated. The goal is to develop the design approach of a fuel-efficient and robust jet engine.

In current design, a jet engine is developed with a focus on not only performance improvement but also robustness. Therefore, Taguchi method is adopted in order to assess robustness. By this method, a jet engine is optimized based on the analysis that minimizes deterioration and variation of SFC. As a result, more efficient engine design is realized with the new design approach that directly deals with SFC.
