A novel engine concept, for reducing the environmental impact of gas turbines, is the Geared Turbofan with Active Core technologies (GTAC), investigated in the context of the European program NEWAC (New Aero Engine Core Concepts). Two performance models of this engine are created for short and long range aircraft applications and matched to manufacturer specifications. The engine performance data are used in a mission analysis module simulating typical aircraft applications. Compared to missions using Year 2000 in service engines, the results show a significant reduction in fuel consumption and noise levels. A significant reduction in NOx emissions requires the application of new technology combustor designs as developed e.g. in NEWAC.
