Within the ConcEpt validatioN sTudy foR fusElage wake-filLIng propulsioN integration (CENTRELINE) project, the proof of concept of the Propulsive Fuselage Concept (PFC) with an Entry Into Service (EIS) year of 2035 was demonstrated. The content of this paper describes the activities in Task 1.1 "Application scenario and reference aircraft" as part of the first work package in the European Union Horizon 2020 project CENTRELINE . In order to assess the PFC under realistic design and operational conditions, a well-suited application scenario was required. For the PFC, environmental benchmarking against the targets defined by the European Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) , a sound baseline representing typical year 2000 standards was necessary. An analysis of the air traffic demands and aircraft (A/C) market segment trends for a target propulsive fuselage A/C entering the market in the year 2035 is presented, showing the market forecast and a very strong influence of the intercontinental traffic between Europe and Asia. Broad potential for an application in 2035 was identified for a design mission with 340 passengers and 6500 NM range. A suitable set of Top-Level Aircraft Requirements (TLAR) was compiled, based on an existing A/C design with the best possible data availability and similarity concerning the design mission requirements. This A/C was determined to be the Airbus A330-300 equipped with Rolls-Royce Trent 700 series power plants. For a fair comparison, an appropriate model of the A330-300 was deduced in order to match the 2035 design mission. The resulting configuration represents a suitable year 2000 reference (R2000), including a propulsion system appropriate for SRIA benchmarking purposes. The year 2035 reference A/C (R2035) was derived from the R2000 by incorporation of advanced conventional technologies. Family concept considerations were taken into account, and a shrink, baseline, and stretch version of the R2000 and R2035 were designed. The members of each family share common components. An advanced propulsion system featuring geared turbofan engines with ultra-high bypass ratio greater than 16 together with advanced component technologies was created for the R2035. In results, the R2035 baseline design has a block fuel reduction for the design mission of 33% compared to the R2000 baseline A/C.
