Wang, H. (author)
The outsourcing that has taken place in the aircraft industry over the last few decades has created a globalized supply chain from and to a limited number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). This has led to multi-level design due to the shift from airframe subsystem design to suppliers. Increasingly OEMs focus on requirement allocation...

Van den Berg, T. (author)
An increase in productivity is required for the European aviation industry to remain competitive in a world with rising competition, shorter development timescales, more complex products and decreasing numbers of technically skilled personnel. Fokker Elmo, a Dutch aircraft electrical wiring harness manufacturer, is facing these challenges. At...

Van Hoydonck, W.R.M. (author)
This thesis contains the results of research in the area of rotorcraft aerodynamics with a focus on method development related to the vortical wake generated by rotor blades. It is applied to a vortex tube representation of the wake (using a single NURBS surface) and a simplified filament wake model where only the tip vortices are taken into...

Low drag bluff road vehicle design can be obtained effectively and efficiently with a three phase approach that uses numerical simulations, scaled wind tunnel experiments and full-scale road testing. By applying this generalised method, SideWings were developed for an improved trailer underbody flow and tails for the trailer's rear-end. A...

Straathof, M.H. (author)
This thesis introduces a new parameterization technique based on the Class-Shape-Transformation (CST) method. The new technique consists of an extension to the CST method in the form of a refinement function based on B-splines. This Class-Shape-Refinement-Transformation (CSRT) method has the same advantages as the original CST method, while also...

The design of complex systems in today’s aerospace domain requires a balance between the ever-increasing complexity of the supporting technology and the drive to develop those systems in a compressed timeframe. The performance knowledge of a preliminary design must shift backwards in the lifecycle in order to exploit that knowledge when there is...

Schroijen, M.J.T. (author)
Anthropogenic environmental impact is growing despite large technical efforts to reduce it. Its dependency on technology induced human behaviour makes designing for environmental impact reduction particularly difficult. Despite the fact that the sustainable conundrum is characterized as a “no technical solution problem”, a framework is proposed...

Since the 1960s, the demand for air transportation has doubled every 15 years, resilient to every oil crises and international events. However, the current capability of the air transport management system, the demand of increasingly growing levels of quality, comfort, safety and security, and, above all, an environmental sensitivity as high as...

Nowadays, many modern countries are relying heavily on non-renewable resources. One common example of non-renewable resources is fossil fuel. Non-renewable resources are ?nite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, renewable energy resources, like wind energy, are...

Schut, E.J. (author)
In order to keep innovating, engineers are working more and more with engineering software, providing them a way to cut away their routine and repetitive activities. Computer aided design and simulation software are for instance considered standard tools in most engineering companies. Today, to solve complex engineering design problems,...

Carpentieri, G. (author)
This thesis presents a shape optimization framework for problems that are encountered routinely in Aerodynamic Design. The nature of the framework is numerical. Its focus is wide as different aspects of the shape optimization practice are treated, e.g., the solution of the flow equations, the sensitivity analysis and the parameterization of the...

Krakers, L.A. (author)
Designing a fuselage is a very complex process, which involves many different aspects like strength and stability, fatigue, damage tolerance, fire resistance, thermal and acoustic insulation but also inspection, maintenance, production and repair aspects. It is difficult to include all design aspects from the start of the design process. In this...

Baluch, H.A. (author)
With regard to the simulation of structural vibrations and consequent aeroelastic loads in aircraft components, the use of elastic axis e.a as reference of vibrations is quite common. The e.a decouples the bending and torsion degrees of freedom (D.o.F) during the dynamic analysis. The use of the e.a to decouple the bending and torsion in...

Vermeulen, B. (author)
The process of design aircraft systems is becoming more and more complex, due to an increasing amount of requirements. Moreover, the knowledge on how to solve these complex design problems becomes less readily available, because of a decrease in availability of intellectual resources and reduced knowledge transfer opportunities. Aerospace...

Growing number of applications of composites materials in aerospace and naval structures along with advancements in manufacturing technologies demand continuous innovations in design of composite structures. In the traditional design of composite laminates, fiber orientation angles are constant for each layer and are usually limited to 0, 90,...

Fibre Metal Laminate Glare consists of thin aluminium layers bonded together with pre-impregnated glass fibre layers and shows an excellent fatigue crack growth behaviour compared to monolithic aluminium. The fibres are insensitive to the occurring fatigue loads and remain intact while the fatigue cracks occur in the aluminium layers. As a...
