Abstract: Infrared thermography is applied to measure the spiral vortices in the boundary layer over a rotating cone under axial inflow. The data sets are analysed using proper orthogonal decomposition (POD). A criterion based on the signal-to-noise ratio is defined for the selection of relevant POD modes, such that a low-order reconstruction...

Boundary layer instabilities and the formation of coherent spiral vortices over a rotating cone and ellipsoid are studied experimentally. It is found that under a non-axial inflow, the breaking of symmetry in the flow field significantly disturbs the coherence and delays the formation of spiral vortices to higher local Reynolds numbers (Re_l)...

In this paper we address a preliminary assessment of the aerodynamics and performance effects of a propeller based distributed propulsion that is positioned at the trailing edge of a wing. The proposed layout is a potential candidate for the application of hybrid-electric propulsion in a green aircraft design that is currently being developed in...

The aim of this research is to investigate the combined use of throttle and aerodynamic control vanes for aircraft optimal control. A new disruptive aircraft configuration concept is presented, featuring control vanes downstream of two rear-mounted ducted propellers. The aerodynamic interaction between the horizontal vane and the throttle is...

The wingtip-mounted pusher propeller, which experiences a performance benefit from the interaction with the wingtip flowfield, is an interesting concept for distributed propulsion. This paper examines a propeller design framework and provides verification with RANS CFD simulations by analyzing the wing of a 9-passenger commuter airplane with a...

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...

This paper presents an experimental and numerical study of the aerodynamic interaction between horizontal tail-mounted propellers and the airframe. A representative aircraft model was installed in a low-speed wind-tunnel and measurements were taken with an external balance to determine the e_ect of propeller installation on integral forces and...

This paper presents the results of a study into the effect of distributed hybrid-electric propulsion on aircraft performance and characteristics. To size these aircraft, a new preliminary sizing method for hybrid-electric aircraft with distributed propulsion, including aero-propulsive interaction, is combined with a modified Class-II weight...

Ducted propellers are an interesting design choice for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) concepts due to a potential increase of the propeller efficiency. In such designs, it is commonly assumed that introducing the duct also results in an overall noise reduction. The objective of this work is to experimentally analyze and quantify noise of a...

This paper presents an experimental and numerical study of the aerodynamic in-plane and out-of-plane loads of a propeller which are induced by the wake of an upstream wing impinging on the lower half of the propeller disk. A propeller was installed behind a wing model in a low-speed wind-tunnel and measurements were taken with an external...

Sub-scaled Physical Models (SPM) are often employed in wind-tunnel tests or in free-flight tests (physical tests) to predict flight behavior of aircraft Full-scale Design (FD). However, a quality prediction of both the static and dynamic behavior is to date an open challenge. In this research, a methodology for designing SPMs is proposed for...

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...

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...

Sub-scale Flight Testing (SFT) is potentially useful in predicting aircraft flight behaviour, especially in the case of unconventional designs for which legacy information is unavailable and wind tunnel tests are unable to predict aircraft dynamics. A necessary condition for SFT is the design of properly scaled models. However, even in case of...

Wingtip-mounted tractor propellers enhance aerodynamic performance by attenuating the wingtip vortex with the propeller slipstream and inducing a favorable upwash on the wing. However, the close coupling between propeller and wing means that wing performance may be degraded when the propeller produces negative thrust. This paper analyzes the...

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.

Installation effects of the lateral rotors for a compound helicopter were investigated by means of unsteady CFD simulations. The helicopter featured a box-wing design for additional lift in cruise and wingtip-mounted lateral rotors in pusher configuration for additional thrust in cruise and counter-torque in hover. It was found that propeller...

This paper examines the capability of a commercial RANS solver for the simulation of wingtip-mounted propellers. The applicability of actuator-disk and actuator-line models to reduce the cost of propeller modeling is investigated in its most accurate form, by extracting and applying propeller blade loading from full-blade simulations. The...
