A propulsion assembly for an aircraft, the assembly including a turbojet having at least one unducted propulsive propeller, and an attachment pylon for attaching the turbojet to a structural element of the aircraft, the pylon being positioned on the turbojet upstream from the propeller and having a streamlined profile defined by two opposite side faces extending transversely between a leading edge and a trailing edge. The pylon includes a plurality of blow nozzles situated in the vicinity of its trailing edge and configured to blow air taken from a pressurized portion of the turbojet, the blow nozzles being positioned over at least a fraction of the trailing edge of the pylon that extends longitudinally facing at least a portion of the propeller. A method of reducing the noise generated by a pylon attaching a turbojet to an aircraft is presented.


A fiber structure made as a single piece by multilayer weaving using a method including weaving warp yarns of at least a first set of layers of warp yarns with weft yarns including at least some that are woven with extra length so as to have warp yarn end portions available that extend beyond the zone of weaving, the warp yarn end portions being returned to be woven with warp yarns by being reinserted in layers of warp yarns, and a hollow, or tubular, portion being formed by looping the first woven set of layers of warp yarns back onto itself and applying traction to the ends of the reinserted weft yarns so that a fiber preform for a part including a hollow portion can be obtained as a single piece.

A feed system for feeding a rocket engine with a liquid propellant includes a feed circuit, and a device to vary a volume of gas in the feed circuit. The device is configured to cause a volume of gas in the feed circuit to vary while the rocket engine is in operation. The device to vary gas volume includes at least one variable-flow-rate gas injector to inject gas into the liquid propellant in the feed circuit. Methods of suppressing a POGO effect are also provided.


A preform for a turbine engine blade, comprising a main fiber preform obtained by three-dimensional weaving and comprising: a first longitudinal segment, suitable for forming a blade root; a second longitudinal segment, extending upwards from the first longitudinal segment and suitable for forming an airfoil portion; and a first transverse segment, extending transversely from the junction between the first and second longitudinal segments to a substantially linear distal edge and suitable for forming a first platform; the preform further including at least one attachment tab provided under the first transverse segment at its distal edge, suitable for forming an attachment portion of the platform.

A turbine ring assembly includes a ring support structure and a plurality of CMC ring sectors forming a turbine ring. Each ring sector is K-shaped in radial section, with tabs extending from the outside face of the annular base over end portions of the annular base, the tabs and the end portions of each ring sector being held respectively facing tabs and end portions of ring sectors that are adjacent in the ring. The turbine ring assembly has a plurality of rigid gaskets, each extending axially between adjacent ring sectors, and resilient holder devices exerting a force suitable for holding the gaskets in contact with the end portions or the tabs of two adjacent ring sectors.

A turbine ring assembly includes a ring support structure and a plurality of ring sectors made of CMC material and forming a turbine ring, each ring sector including an annular base with respective end portions having edges that are held facing an edge of the end portion of the annular base of a sector that is adjacent in the turbine ring. The assembly includes resilient holder devices for holding the ring sectors in position on the ring support structure, and each resilient holder device includes a spring element present beside the outside face of the ring support structure.


A combustion chamber (18) for aircraft turbomachine, comprising an annular chamber end wall (40), an annular row of injection systems (42) mounted in the annular chamber end wall (40), each injection system comprising at least one air inlet swirler (56, 58) and a main fuel injection nozzle (54) configured to output a fuel stream centred on an injection axis (44) and comprising a central recirculation zone (62) and a corner recirculation zone (64) extending as an annulus around the central recirculation zone (62) chamber, and a plurality of additional fuel injection devices (70) mounted in the chamber end wall (40) and configured to inject fuel (71) directly into the corresponding corner recirculation zones (64) produced by the corresponding injection systems (42) at an operating speed less than or equal to the idling speed.


A method of estimating future change in operation of a monitored aircraft (A), including the following steps performed by a computer on board the monitored aircraft, to calculate a current state of the monitored aircraft (E_(CA)) from measurements (VF_(A)) of variables related to operation of the monitored aircraft, to send a request to analyse the similarity of the calculated current state with previous states (E_(PB)) of similar aircraft, and to analyse change in operation (S_(PB)) of each similar aircraft having a similar previous state to determine a probable change (F_(PA)) in operation of the monitored aircraft. The method includes a step performed by a computer (B) on board each aircraft, to compare the calculated current state (E_(CA)) with previous states (E_(PB)) of similar aircraft, and send the change in operation (S_(PB)) corresponding to an identified similar previous state. The invention includes an on board system capable of implementing the method.


A warp yarn take-up system includes a clamping device for holding a plurality of layers of warp yarns, the clamping device being movable at least in a direction corresponding to the advance direction of the warp yarns. The clamping device includes a bottom clamp, a top clamp, and at least one intermediate clamping element present between the bottom clamp and the top clamp. The bottom clamp, the top clamp, and the at least one intermediate clamping element are held together by clamping.


A core for the moulding of a turbine engine blade, this blade including a vane extending along a spanwise direction and ending in a top, this core including a first core element to delimit a first internal cavity and a second core element of which at least one portion delimits a second internal cavity. The second cavity is situated between the first cavity and the top of the blade along the spanwise direction, and the portion of the second core element delimiting the second cavity includes a through hole, which emerges in line with an end face of the first core element to constitute a de-dusting conduit of the first cavity, this conduit traversing the second cavity from end to end while emerging in the top of the blade.
