The paper presents a possible roadmap for the definition of a European quality label for aerospace related higher education degrees. The proposal is the result of a two-years long Horizon 2020 project that has involved a great portion of the European stakeholders in aerospace: Universities, research centres, industries (both small and large)...

Blended education, or “flipping the classroom” is rapidly becoming a mainstream form of teaching within universities. Within Engineering Education, it is popular as it allows more time in-class to focus on hands on activities such as demonstrations and solving complex problems. This paper discusses the effort conducted to restructure, according...

The design synthesis exercise forms the closing piece of the third year of the Bachelor degree curriculum of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft. In this exercise the students learn to apply their acquired knowledge from all aerospace disciplines in one complete design. The object of this exercise is to improve the students’ design...

Over the past four years the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands has redeveloped its BSc curriculum to mimic an engineering design cycle. Each semester represents a step in the design cycle: exploration; system design; sub-system design; test, analysis & simulation; verification & validation.

Prior to being used in aviation, alternative fuels have to be tested thoroughly to ensure safe operation. At Delft University of Technology, a test programme was performed to evaluate the safety, performance and emissions of synthetic fuel blends. During test preparations, compatibility of the synthetic fuel with the aircraft, a Cessna Citation...

International jet fuel specifications permit up to 50% volume Fischer-Tropsch synthetic paraffinic kerosines (FT-SPKs), such as Gas-to-Liquids (GTL) Kerosine, in Jet A-1. Higher SPK-content fuels could, however, produce desirable fuels: lower density, higher SPK-content fuels may have benefits for Payload range (P/R) performance and their...

The radiative forcing caused by the emissions of jet aircraft is calculated using data from an aircraft performance model. Data from the performance model is needed to calculate the emissions of the aircraft. The sensitivity function and lifetime of the emitted gasses and particles are used to calculate the integrated radiative forcing of the...

The search for alternative fuels has lead to a number of possibilities. The most promising alternative fuels for the short term are drop-in fuels such as synthetic fuel and hydrotreated renewable jet. These fuels are similar to Jet A-1 but some differences are present. Synthetic fuels are produced using a process that results in a fuel without...

TU Delft in the Netherlands is performing research into the effects of the use of synthetic kerosene in aircraft. The research program consists of both desk research and tests. In the desk research gas turbine simulations will be combined with payload range performance calculations to show engine effects and fuel consumption changes. Ground and...

Since the year 2000 the Netherlands are using a new guideline for assessing the costs and benefits of transport systems. This guideline has been used several times now to assess transport systems using existing transport modes like trains. This paper reports on the first time this guideline was used to assess an innovative transport concept, the...
