Abstract
Theoretical and numerical aspects of aerodynamic efficiency of propulsion systems coupled to the boundary layer of a fuselage are studied. We discuss the effects of local flow fields, which are affected both by conservative flow acceleration as well as total pressure losses, on the efficiency of boundary layer immersed propulsion devices. We introduce the concept of a boundary layer retardation turbine that helps reduce skin friction over the fuselage. We numerically investigate efficiency gains offered by boundary layer and wake interacting devices. We discuss the results in terms of a total energy consumption framework and show that efficiency gains of any device depend on all the other elements of the propulsion system.
