Huracan

Huracan is an open source, 0-dimensional, object-oriented airbreathing engine modelling package for preliminary analysis and design of airbreathing engines, divulgation and educational purposes.

At the moment Huracan is capable of modelling engines with an arbitrary number of components connected by an arbitrary number of shafts. It allows for a single combustion chamber per stream, reheating, intercooling and the addition of electrical system power requirements. Multiple-stream systems can be modelled, as well as splitting (such as the bypass flow of a turbofan) and mixing streams (such as in the nozzle of a mixed exhaust turbofan).

The inspiration for the project lies in traditional thermodynamic plant diagrams, and similar architectures are used in well known proprietary tools such as GasTurb and NLR's GSP.

The API reference is available here.
