This paper presents the use of a new class of flight control actuators employing Post-Buckled Precompressed (PBP) piezoelectric elements in morphing wing Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The new actuator relieson axial compression to amplify deflections and control forces simultaneously. Two designs employing morphingwing panels based on PBP...

Currently, in medical ultrasound contrast agent (UCA) imaging the second harmonic scattering of the microbubbles is regularly used. This scattering is in competition with the signal that is caused by nonlinear wave propagation in tissue. It was reported that UCA imaging based on the third or higher harmonics, i.e. “superharmonic” imaging, shows...

It is critical to use a proper spatial sampling, otherwise images suffer from grating lobes. However, the cost of a medical ultrasound scanner is strongly related to the channel count of the receive electronics. This has led to channel reduction using multiplexing or in-probe pre-beamforming methods at the cost of image quality or frame rate....

Image registration of medical images in the presence of large intra-image signal fluctuations is a challenging task. Our paper addresses this problem by introducing a new concept based on the structure tensor of the local phase. The local phase is calculated from the monogenic signal representation of the images. The local phase image is hardly...

Many computer aided diagnosis (CAD) schemes have been developed for colon cancer detection using Virtual Colonoscopy (VC). In earlier work, we developed an automatic polyp detection method integrating flow visualization techniques, that forms part of the CAD functionality of an existing Virtual Colonoscopy pipeline. Curvature streamlines were...

A design method is presented that has been implemented in a software program to investigate the merits of conventional and unconventional transport airplanes. Design and analysis methods are implemented in a design tool capable of creating a conceptual design based on a set of toplevel requirements. In contrast to established design methods,...

Blended wing body (BWB) aircraft represent a paradigm shift in jet transport aircraft design that promise benefits over conventional aircraft. A method is presented to enable the conceptual design of BWB aircraft, enabling comparison studies with tube-and-wing aircraft (TAW) based on the same top-level requirements and analysis fidelity. The...

A new type of adaptive structure is presented that relies on pressurized honeycomb cells that extent a significant length with respect to the plane of the hexagons. By varying the pressure inside each of the cells, the stiffness can be altered. A variable stiffness in combination with an externally applied force field results in a fully embedded...

This paper details a new software tool to aid in the conceptual design of blended-wingbody aircraft. The tool consists of four main modules. In the preliminary sizing model a class I estimate of the maximum take-off weight, wing loading, and thrust-to-weight ratio is calculated. This information is used together with an initial guess of the 30...

Functional imaging of the respiratory system is a new domain where the respiratory dynamics (such as airflow in the lungs and particle deposition) are studied by means of modern engineering techniques. A three dimensional model of a patient specific bronchial tree is constructed from a computed tomography scan. By segmenting the desired region...

Evaluation and assessment of novel technologies for aerospace applications is essential for business strategy and decision making regarding development efforts. Since technology is evaluated in the conceptual design phase and little is known about the technology, large uncertainty is present. This uncertainty needs to be accurately assessed...

This paper outlines a new concept for a pressure cabin design for blended-wing-body aircraft. An overview is presented of the wide oval cabin and why it is believed to be a possible alternative to existing designs of non-circular pressurized cabins. The perimeter of the oval cross section is formed by four smoothly connecting arcs of different...

A new type of adaptive structure is presented that relies on a pressure derential to perform gross structural deformations. This structure relies on highly compliant honey-comb cells that can be pressurized externally or can rely on a pressure differential that exists at elevated altitudes. By pressurizing this honeycomb, its stiffness can be...
