The impact of the ICAO code C gate span limit is assessed on the sizing of a serial Hybrid Electric Aircraft (HEA) of increasing Degree of Hybridization (DoH). For a set of Top Level Aircraft Requirements (TLARs) similar to the ATR-42, it is shown that the increase in MTOM due to the presence of the battery is such that only a maximum DoH under...

Recent developments in the field of hybrid-electric propulsion (HEP) have opened the door to a wide range of novel aircraft configurations with improved energy efficiency. These electrically-driven powertrains enable “distributed propulsion” configurations, in which the aerodynamic interaction between the propulsive devices and the airframe is...

In the assessment of existing infrastructure performing only a desk study is often not sufficient to determine the structural reliability of a bridge or viaduct. For concrete structures gathering field data by performing a proof load test offers detailed information about the structural performance. However, the relation between the magnitude of...

The goal of this study is to analyze how the aero-propulsive benefits of an over-the-wing distributed-propulsion (OTWDP) system at component level translate into an aero-propulsive benefit at aircraft level, and to determine whether this enhancement is sufficient to lead to a reduction in overall energy consumption. For this, the preliminary...

The number of studies on hybrid-electric aircraft is steadily increasing because these configurations can lead to lower operating costs and environmental impact than traditional aircraft. However, due to the lack of reference data of actual hybrid-electric aircraft, the design tools and results are difficult to validate. This paper analyzes...

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...

This article describes an experimental investigation of the aerodynamic interaction that occurs between distributed propellers in forward flight. To this end, three propellers were installed in close proximity in a wind tunnel, and the changes in their performance, flow-field characteristics, and noise production were quantified using...

In this study, unsteady RANS simulations are performed to investigate the effect of over-the-wing (OTW) propeller inclination on the aerodynamic interaction with a wing featuring a plain flap. A comparison to experimental data shows that the numerical approach is capable of modeling the wing and propeller separately and can capture the effect of...

In this combined experimental and numerical study, the propeller–airframe aerodynamic interaction is characterized for an aircraft configuration with propellers mounted to the horizontal tailplane. The contributions of the propeller and airframe to the overall loading are distinguished in the experimental analyses by using a combination of...

Ducted propellers constitute an efficient propulsion-system alternative to reduce the environmental impact of aircraft. These systems are able to increase the thrust-to-power ratio of a propeller system by both producing thrust and by lowering tip losses of propellers. In this research, steady and unsteady RANS CFD simulations were used to...

In the Clean Sky 2 Large Passenger Aircraft (LPA) program the potential of innovative hybrid electric propulsion (HEP) air vehicle concepts has been investigated by the projects ADEC (Advanced Engine and Aircraft Configuration) and NOVAIR (Novel Aircraft Configurations and Scaled Flight Testing Instrumentation). In a combined effort the members...
