The aircraft on hydrogen fuel

The aircraft on hydrogen fuel.

Technology is in the process of development!

 

 

Develop wide-body passenger aircraft for 200-230 passengers on hydrogen fuel will have the original layout of the fuselage, the original electric traction and the tail engines, T-tail, and work on electricity obtained from hydrogen fuel cells.

The Tu-154 and Tu-154B

 


Description:

The construction of the main aircraft on hydrogen fuel actively developed in the last years of the Soviet Union. Was then built and flew the world’s first hydrogen aircraft Tu-155 (on the basis of the Tu-154B). Held in the Soviet era tests of the Tu-155 hydrogen confirmed the environmental and technical safety of this type of fuel. However, for long-haul flights needed a lot of hydrogen fuel, which was necessary for fuel tanks larger volume that was mounted inside the fuselage of the Tu-155 to preserve the aerodynamics of the aircraft, but to the detriment of the number of seats for passengers.

Currently the concept of creating a new wide-body passenger aircraft for 200-230 passengers with the original layout of the fuselage of the aircraft, the original electric traction and rear engines and T-tail. Proposes the creation of a double-Decker fuselage, where on the top floor fuel tanks with liquid hydrogen and the lower (main) – traditional interior with passenger Seating. Power to the electric motors will be provided with electricity generated by hydrogen fuel cellsthat are placed in the rear of the aircraft. Such a plane would be environmentally clean type of air transport.

 


The Tu-154 and Tu-154B:

Tu-154 is a Soviet trimotored jet passenger aircraft for medium-haul airlines, designed to carry passengers 152-180. Developed in 1960-ies in the USSR in a Tupolev. Produced until 2013 the Tu-154 is the most mass Soviet passenger jet, which until the end of 2000-ies has remained one of the main aircraft on medium-range routes in the country. All were produced 1026 Tu-154. Tu-154 is one of the world’s fastest commercial passenger liner, with a cruising speed of 900 km/h.

The Tu-154B has been reinforced wing design, the fuselage was installed additional fuel tank added as well, the emergency exits in the tail. Take — off weight is 98 tons.
