SUZANNE SALLES'S THESIS LABELLED BY ISA

Suzanne Salles's thesis focuses on the impact of changing atmospheric conditions, linked to climate change, on aircraft take-off performance.

The doctoral project is based on two pillars.

The first uses climate models to identify day-to-day weather and climate conditions at different airports around the world. The second aims to evaluate aircraft performance, and engine thrust,in particular, using a thermodynamic model that takes atmospheric conditions into account. These two coupled models are the subject of an effort to quantify the propagation of uncertainty on atmospheric input variables to aircraft performance. A sensitivity study is used to rank the performance-determining parameters and the probabilities of disruption to operational conditions under different climatic scenarios.

This thesis is co-directed by Nicolas Gourdain (ISAE-SUPAERO) and Sophie Ricci (CERFACS).

In March 2023, Suzanne took part in the EUROPEAN ACADEMIA @EASA 2023 conference in Cologne, where she was selected with three other European PhD students to further a partnership with EASA on the impact of climate change on aviation safety.
