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 study compares a hybrid-electric aircraft featuring a propulsive empennage and over-the- wing, distributed-propulsion to a conventional regional turboprop. The impact of multiple design parameters, mission requirements, and technology assumptions on maximum take-off mass and payload-range energy efficiency is evaluated, in order to...

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...

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...

The potential benefits of hybrid-electric propulsion (HEP) have led to an increased interest in this topic over the past decade. One promising advantage of HEP is the distribution of power along the airframe, which enables synergistic configurations with improved aerodynamic and propulsive efficiency. The purpose of this paper is to present a...

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...

This paper addresses the aerodynamic performance and numerical modeling of over-the-wing propellers. Installing the propeller above a wing has the potential to increase wing lift-to-drag ratio, high-lift capabilities, and to reduce flyover noise. However, the prediction of its performance is difficult, since research on the aerodynamic...

In the manual control of a dynamic system, the human controller (HC) is often required to follow a visible and predictable reference path. Using the predictable aspect of a reference signal, through applying feedforward control, the HC can significantly improve performance as compared to a purely feedback control strategy. A proper definition of...
