This paper presents an experimental investigation into the aeroelastic behavior of an innovative wind turbine design featuring a downwind two-blade rotor with a teetering hub mounted on a tower with adjustable tilt. The rotor model incorporates two sets of elastic blades—stiff and flexible—for scaling purposes, each instrumented with strain...

This study explores the implementation of aeroelastic tailoring in the design of a regional aircraft featuring a strut-braced wing (SBW). Making use of the aeroelastic optimisation framework from Delft University of Technology, PROTEUS, the research addresses two distinct cases. The first case involves a simplified SBW geometry to validate the...

Design optimisation potentially leads to lightweight aircraft structures with lower environmental impact. Due to the high number of design variables and constraints, these problems are ordinarily solved using gradient-based optimisation methods, leading to a local solution in the design space while the global space is neglected. Bayesian...

Hybrid-electric aircraft represent a promising solution for the urgent need to decarbonize short-haul flights and bolster aviation sustainability. Nevertheless, the realization of hybrid-electric aircraft demands rigorous environmental impact analysis, given the substantial investments, time, and research required for technology development....

This research takes a further step towards the development of an autonomous aeroservoelastic wing concept with distributed flaps. The wing demonstrator, developed within the TU Delft SmartX project, aims to demonstrate in-flight performance optimization and multi-objective control using an over-actuated wing design. To address the challenges...

Previous numerical and experimental studies have shown the load alleviation capabilities of the flared folding wingtip. However, they have also shown the complex dynamics of the system and the limitations in the results obtained by modeling such an aeroelastic system using linear models, which cannot capture the effects of the large wingtip...

In this paper, an innovative design methodology is proposed to simultaneously optimize the size, layout, and number of stiffeners of a stiffened panel using a gradient-based optimizer. In the proposed method, CAD-based parameterization is used to parameterize the layout of the stiffeners. The location and orientation of each stiffener are...

This paper proposes an extension to the traditional flight path reconstruction filter to simultaneously reconstruct the aircraft rigid body states together with modal amplitudes and velocities of the structure. To achieve this, the filter makes use of additional accelerometers, gyroscopes and strain gauges placed across the aircraft structure....

This paper aims to explore the advantages offered by machine learning (ML) for dimensionality reduction of nonlinear transonic aerodynamics. Three ML techniques are evaluated in terms of their ability to generate interpretable low-dimensional manifolds of the transient pressure distributions over a NACA4412 airfoil equipped with a flap. These ML...

This study presents an aeroelastic wind-tunnel experiment to identify the influence of the wing stiffness and hinge release threshold on the gust load alleviation performance of a folding wingtip design. Five models with different stiffness and tailoring properties are tested, and the wing root bending moment at different conditions is compared...

Wing structures subjected to large deflections are prone to nonlinear load-deflection behavior. Geometric nonlinearities can arise due to the accompanying large rotations and in-plane deflections that manifest in the form of stiffening effects in the nonlinear static response. To account for these nonlinearities, reduced-order modeling...

This paper proposes an incremental nonlinear control method for an aeroelastic system’s gust load alleviation and active flutter suppression. These two control objectives can be achieved without modifying the control architecture or the control parameters. The proposed method has guaranteed stability in the Lyapunov sense and also has...

The paper proposes a methodology for increased-fidelity aeroelastic testing in a wind tunnel environment to improve the correlation between the aeroelastic response measured in a wind tunnel experiment and the aeroelastic response observed on an aircraft in flight. The focus of the current study is to assess the potential of the proposed...

This paper proposes a nonlinear control architecture for flexible aircraft simultaneous trajectory tracking and load alleviation. By exploiting the control redundancy, the gust and maneuver loads are alleviated without degrading the rigid-body command tracking performance. The proposed control architecture contains four cascaded loops:...
