How do you put engines at the back and manage to prevent uncontained failure of one of the engines not taking out the other?
You have a point there. When this concept was created 15 yrs ago, most studies had 2-3 high BOR fans, CROR's at the back. Since then authorities took a safe road, stating a twin engines like confuguration should be certified as single engine because a uncontained failure could take out the other engine. With DC9 ect. There is a lot of structure between the two hp turbines..
