After waiting three decades for enabling technology to catch up with its design ideas, GE-Aviation is deeply embedding itself in composite. The GEnx-1B has won about a 65 percent share of the Boeing as well as its combustor lining and fuel nozzles— will offer operators of. TAPS II Combustor. Final Report.

Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance – Engine Parts Repair
The GEnx and the Rolls-Royce Trent were selected by Boeing following a run-off between the three big engine manufacturers. The GEnx uses some technology from the GE90 turbofan including composite fan gnx, and the smaller core featured in earlier variants of the engine.
The engine carries composite technology  into the fan case. Boeing wanted to allow changing between alternative engines within 24 hours, but had not worked it out by Both engines enable the move towards the More Electric Aircraftthat is, the concept of replacing previously hydraulic and pneumatic systems with electrical ones to reduce weight, increase efficiency, and reduce maintenance requirements. Unlike the initial version, for the comubstor, this version has a traditional bleed air system to power internal pneumatic and ventilation systems.
It will also have a smaller overall diameter than the initial model to accommodate installation on the General Electric began initial test runs of the bleedless GEnx variant on 19 March Introduced in late on a freighter, Cargolux surpassed one million flight hours in early One failure was caused by an assembly problem, which led to inspections of all other engines then in service.
During the spring and summer benxGE learned of four F freighters that suffered icing in their engines at altitudes of 40, feet and above. The most serious incident involved an AirBridgeCargo freighter; on July 31, while at an altitude of 41, feet over Chinathe flight crew noted two engines surging while a third lost substantial power.
GEnx Development Emphasizes Composites, Combustor Technology
The pilots were able to land gsnx plane safely but the engines were found to have sustained damage. Among the possible factors cited was “‘unique convective weather systems’ such as unusually large thunderstorms reaching high altitudes. In Marcha GEnx-powered Boeing had its first in-flight shut down in operation when a JAL flight had to divert to Honolulu after an oil pressure alert, bringing its in-flight shut down rate to 1 perhours. In earlyof orders for the Bselected the GEnx The GEnx is derived from the GE90 with a fan diameter of To reduce weight, it features 18 composite fan blades, a composite fan case and titanium aluminide stage 6 and 7 low-pressure turbine blades.
It has a 10 stage high-pressure compressor and is quieter, helped by larger, more efficient fan blades. Fan blades have steel alloy leading edges and the composite fan case reduces thermal expansion.
To reduce fuel burn, the To reduce maintenance cost and increase engine life, spools with lower parts count are achieved by using blisks in some stages, low blade counts in other stages and by using ocmbustor stages; internal engine temperatures are comnustor due to more efficient cooling techniques and debris extraction within the low-pressure compressor protects the high-pressure compressor.
