Recent launches of satellite constellations in the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) region have increased the collision probability of existing debris objects with active satellites. Monitoring the trajectories of these debris objects is crucial for Space Situational Awareness (SSA) to prevent the creation of more debris due to unwanted collisions. Much...

Leading Edge Erosion is a major concern for the wind energy industry as it affects the aerodynamic efficiency of wind turbine blades and, therefore, the power generated. Hail impact on the leading edge could significantly damage the protective layer and the composite substrate. The focus of this research study is to investigate the effect of...

The objective of this master project is to improve the current SHM techniques for global damage identification of beam-like composite structures. The studied damage diagnosis method is based on structural vibrations from which the modal parameters are obtained. The literature study provides an overview of the most common vibration-based damage...

This work is a part of the Automated Rotor Blade Inspection (ARBI) project. ARBI aims to improve the rotorcraft RTB process with novel rotor blade measurement equipment. The objective of this research is to investigate how the variation in structural properties of the rotor blades composite structure affects the dynamical response during the RTB...

Impact on composite structures shows a different damage behaviour compared to metal structures. Due to the current short operational life time of composite aircraft the risks of impact damages on composite structures are unknown. This paper proposes a new method for quantitative risk analysis of low velocity impact damages on composite aircraft...

Debusscher, Charles (author)
Due to the limited availability of sites on both land and sea, there is a need to maximize the power density of wind farms whilst limiting the adverse wake effect between the wind turbines that cause power losses and/or increased load cases. The study focuses on analyzing the potential of combining yaw-based wake-steering and constant blade...
