Alternative engine concepts to the advanced high bypass turbofan which have promise of reducing energy consumption including regenerative cycles and other engines with heat exchangers, unconventional engine arrangements such as geared fan engines, and high disc loading turboprops. After initial screening, several concepts were selected for a systematic evaluation of the merits of each relative to a high bypass turbofan based on advanced technology consistent with the mid 1980's time period. Both mission fuel and direct operating cost for typical long range transport missions were considered in the evaluation.
