Aviation Fuels and Environment

Call for papers for: Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology

Submission deadline: 21st September 2020

Overview of Special Issue

In the last decade interest to air transportation has been increasing rapidly. Rises in the number of flights yields more energy consumption of the air transportation. According to the latest reports air transportation is responsible for approximately 2% of all human induced emissions whereas it has 12% share in transportation related emissions due to its high energy consumption. However 2% annual fuel efficiency improvement of air transportation until the end of 2050 is declared by the ICAO. As it is understood achieving more efficient and more sustainable propulsion systems has been the main goal of the scientists and researchers. For this purpose utilization of more environment friendly energy resources such as alternative and biofuel is the most effective way in addition to developing methods for reduction of environmental impacts of aviation.

The special issue entitled “Aviation Fuels and Environment” aims to present both theoretical and experimental studies as well as papers about industrial applications related to aviation fuels and their environmental aspects.

This special issue covers following topics:

  • Conventional aviation fuels
  • Alternative aviation fuels
  • Biofuels for aviation applications
  • Fuel additives for aviation fuels
  • Combustion science and technology in aviation
  • Aircraft emissions and pollutants
  • Environmental impact assessment of aviation induced pollutants
  • Environmental impact assessment of in-flight and ground operation pollutants
  • Carbon reduction policy for aviation
  • Aircraft and engine optimization for environmental impact reduction
  • Trajectory and route planning for environmental impact reduction
