Abstract

See full text

An aircraft nacelle includes a lip whose surface contacts with the aerodynamic streams extends inside the nacelle by an inside wall that delimits a layer that empties at a power plant and outside of the nacelle by an outside wall, a first front frame connects the inside and outside walls, delimiting an annular pipe with the lip, and a rear frame connects the inside and outside walls at a junction zone between the inside pipe and power plant pipe, for a given cross-section of the nacelle along a plane that contains the longitudinal axis of the nacelle, a point A at the intersection between the rear frame and the inside wall, and a point B at the intersection between the rear frame and the outside wall, with B being offset toward the rear of the nacelle relative to A over more than 50% of the rear frame's periphery.
