The AeroCity is a new form of transportation concept that has been developed to provide high-speed ground transportation at a much lower cost than the existing high-speed railway. Utilizing the Wing-in-Ground (WIG) effect, the AeroCity vehicle does not require complex infrastructures like other contemporary concepts, such as the Hyperloop or...

The increasing demand for short-range passenger air transport and the strong push for aircraft with electric propulsion has renewed research interest in propellers. Despite the unmatched aerodynamic efficiency of propellers, their relatively high noise emissions limit widespread application on aircraft. Previous research has not systematically...

This experimental study focuses on the aerodynamic interaction between an over-the-wing (OTW) propeller and a wing boundary layer. An OTW propeller is positioned above the hinge line of a wing with a trailing-edge flap. Measurements are carried out with and without axial pressure gradients by deflecting the flap and by extending the flat upper...

An anti-fairing is a concave deformation of the wall around a wing-body junction that can decrease the aerodynamic drag through the activation of a propulsive force generated by the interaction of the curved concave shape and the high-pressure region in proximity of the wing leading-edge. Although this mechanism is well understood, the...

A numerical investigation of a propeller with swirl recovery vanes, for which experimental data exist, is performed. A second swirl recovery vane geometry, with shorter vanes to avoid the impingement of the propeller tip vortices, is also investigated. For the baseline swirl recovery vanes, the efficiency of the propulsive system increases by 2...

Despite a steady decrease in the overall usage of wind tunnels due to the increasing reliability and speed of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), ground testing remains a fundamental part of the development of an air vehicle. In this context, one of the new trends is represented by data assimilation (DA), whereby experimental and numerical...

Wingtip-mounted propellers installed in a tractor configuration can decrease the wing induced drag by attenuating the wingtip vortex by the propeller slipstream. This paper presents an aerodynamic analysis of the propeller-wing interaction effects for the wingtip-mounted propeller configuration, including a comparison with a conventional...

This experimental study focuses on the aerodynamic interaction effects that occur between an over-the-wing (OTW) propeller and a wing boundary-layer. An OTW propeller is positioned above the hinge-line of a wing featuring a plain flap. The measurements are carried out with and without axial pressure gradients by deflecting the flap and by...

The impingement of a propeller slipstream on a downstream surface causes unsteady loading, which may lead to vibrations responsible for structure-borne noise. A low-speed wind-tunnel experiment was performed to quantify the potential of a flow-permeable leading edge to alleviate the slipstream-induced unsteady loading. For this purpose, a...

This paper addresses the effects of propeller installation on the aerodynamic performance of a tailplane featuring tip-mounted propellers. A model of a low aspect ratio tailplane equipped with an elevator and a tip-mounted propeller was installed in a low-speed wind-tunnel. Measurements were taken with an external balance and surface pressure...

Swirl-recovery vanes (SRVs) enhance propulsive efficiency by converting the rotational kinetic energy in a propeller slipstream into additional thrust. This paper discusses the aerodynamic and aeroacoustic impact of the installation of a set of SRVs downstream of a single-rotating propeller. Experiments were carried out in a large low-speed wind...

An experimental analysis was performed of the unsteady aerodynamic loading caused by the impingement of a propeller slipstream on a downstream lifting surface. When installed on an aircraft, this unsteady loading results in vibrations that are transmitted to the fuselage and are perceived inside the cabin as structure-borne noise. A pylon...

The momentum transferred to the fluid by a running propeller contains not only the desired axial component but also a rotational component that does not contribute to the propeller thrust. By introducing a set of swirl-recovery vanes (SRVs) downstream of the propeller, part of the rotational flow in the slipstream can be redirected into the...

Abstract: During the ground operation of aircraft, the interaction between the propulsor-induced flow field and the ground may lead to the generation of ground vortices. Utilizing numerical approaches, the source of vorticity entering ground vortices is investigated. The results show that the production of wall-parallel components of...

Abstract: The interaction between a propeller and its self-induced vortices originating on the ground is investigated in a scaled experiment. The velocity distribution in the flow field in two different planes containing the self-induced vortices is measured by particle image velocimetry (PIV). These planes are a wall–parallel plane in close...
