The surveillance function plays a key-role within an Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) since it provides essential information to the air traffic controllers as well as to other A-SMGCS functions. This paper presents an overview of airport surveillance research at the National Aerospace Laboratory NLR of the...

Aerospace products are typically high-tech, high quality and low volume. They are produced by specialised geographically dispersed companies. The production is dominated by a large amount of engineering. In the engineering phase each company makes extensive use of real-time simulation for its own (sub) systems. At the same time the aerospace...

This millennium's Air Traffic Management (ATM) challenges can only be faced with a new paradigm for ATM research in Europe. The rising delays, the legitimate concerns over ATM safety (collision risk) in the air as well as on the ground and the growing environmental pressure necessitates the review of ATM R&D performance in Europe and the...

One of the most urgent problems of ATM is to reduce delays and to improve the punctuality of air traffic arriving at congested hub-airports. Layered planning with refinement and convergence in time and space, as proposed by EATMP [European ATM Programme], could give the required support for better use of these scarce resources. Refined Flow...

The steady increase in air traffic imposes a need for enhanced airport capacity, and the desire to safely reduce existing separation minima. An important capacity constraint factor is the risk imposed by wake vortices. In view of the uncertainties and the difficulties in understanding the wake vortex phenomena, a novel WAke Vortex Induced Risk...

The commercial aviation industry provides the safest form of transportation in the world. Nevertheless the pressure for continued improvement in safety will remain in response to the predicted growth in both passenger and freight traffic volumes. One of the most important tools to improve the safety of flight operations is to have a Flight Data...

A grid deformation method has been developed for the movement of multiblock, structured grids due to surface deformation arising from aeroelastics or design optimisation. The method uses a volume spline interpolation technique to compute the deformation of block vertices and block edges. After that, the deformation of block-faces is computed by...

In this paper we compare the structure of programs written in literate and traditional imperative programming styles. Considering literate programs as "webs" of interconnections, we model and analyze the patterns of connections particular to literate programs, and compare them to the call graph structures of traditional imperative programs. The...

A new and efficient quadrature rule for the flux integrals arising in the space-time discontinuous Galerkin discretization of the Euler equations in a moving and deforming space-time domain is presented and analyzed. The quadrature rule is a factor three more efficient than the commonly applied quadrature rule and does not affect the local...

A software project produces a number of items during its execution, including various documents, programs, data, and test artifacts. Configuration management (CM) is the aspect of project management that is concerned with identifying distinct variants of these items, and systematically controlling how they change. Configuration management is...

This paper develops a mathematical model for cognitive performance of a tactical air traffic controller in an en-route ATC context. The aim of this model-based approach is to enable the evaluation of both accident risk and aspects like cognitive workload and effectiveness of ATC in managing air traffic situations safely.Use is made of human...

By now, safety is recognised as a key quality on which to select/design advanced air traffic management (ATM) concepts, even when capacity and efficiency are the drivers of the development. The safety target is often described as 'equal or better' in comparison with existing practice, allowing a large freedom in how safety is expressed, let...

The effects of winglet type "fences" at the outboard flap tip, and a blunt flap trailing edge on the airframe noise have been measured in a low-speed wind tunnel on a 8.5% half model. Both a single (extending downward) and a double type "fence" configuration (extending upward as well as downward from the wing) have been investigated. An airframe...

In this paper four conflict prediction approaches are considered: a classical geometric approach, two variations of a probabilistic approach developed by Paielli ÖC Erzberger, based on conflict probability and overlap probability, and a novel probabilistic approach. The objective of all conflict prediction approaches is to evaluate a set of...

In the framework of the Brite Euram project HELIFLOW, research activities were conducted aimed at knowledge acquisition in the area of interactional aerodynamics, validation of wind tunnel test technologies and verification of related theoretical tools. This paper describes the ground vortex activities performed in Task 3 of the project, which...

Computations of three-dimensional unsteady supersonic cavity flow are performed for a freestream Mach number of 1.2. Two cavity geometries are considered: (i) a simple rectangular cavity of length-to-depth (L/D) and length-to-width (L/W) ratios of 4.5, and (ii) a cavity with a 45° ramp attached to the downstream wall of the simple rectangular...

This paper describes an engineering method developed for calculating the water spray and the precipitation drag for aircraft on water-contaminated runways. The spray is considered to consist of a large number of individual particle trajectories. A Monte Carlo approach is followed to obtain realistic spray characteristics. Precipitation drag is...

The simulation of certain time-dependent flow phenomena can pose a grand challenge to Computational Fluid Dynamics. In this paper, a multitime multigrid convergence acceleration algorithm is introduced which significantly reduces the turnaround time to reach time-periodic solutions. The application of this convergence acceleration algorithm will...
