Flying characteristics of a multi-engined light general aviation (GA) aircraft during and after an engine failure is often a major safety consideration when both designing and operating the aircraft. In the meantime, the propellers, being large rotating masses, can exert considerable gyroscopic effect on the aircraft during flight, itself...

The global emission of harmful greenhouse gasses has to be reduced. Commercial shipping contributes to these emissions by using fossil fuel as the only energy source to provide propulsion and power auxiliary systems. In order to reduce fuel consumption, much research is focused on increasing the efficiency of the propulsion system and reducing...

This thesis is performed with the aim to investigate whether split flaps can be a feasible solution for increasing the Flying V directional control power. In order to do so, a set of wind tunnel experiments have been concluded with a 4.6% half wing model in the Open-Jet-Facility at the Delft University of Technology. Here, several split flap...

Testing novel concepts in the allocation and use of aircraft is commonly done in air traffic simulators. Current day simulators rely on proprietary models and often propose questionable solutions. This paper uses BlueSky as simulator, in cooperation with performance models OpenAP and BADA. BlueSky aims to provide the user with full freedom to...

A new aircraft configuration, the Delft University Unconventional Configuration (DUUC), was recently invented by the Flight Performance and Propulsion group at TU Delft. As a solution to the concerns regarding the environmental and health impact due to increasing demand of air travel. The DUUC has a characteristic feature which consist of two...

Optimal design of a lift dumping assembly (LDA) has been found utilizing a gapped spoiler design that consists of two separate surfaces that are placed at 0.06b-0.17b and 0.28b-0.038b spanwise locations. The gapped design allows the cross flow amplified at the hingeline of the inboard spoiler to escape through the middle gap increasing the lift...

Turbulent drag is the largest source of fuel consumption in aviation and forms a significant contribution to climate warming. Recent numerical studies have suggested the ability of surfaces with streamwise-preferential permeability to reduce turbulent friction, and a theoretical framework behind the working mechanism has been proposed. This work...

A collaborative group comprising of the TU Delft, Deltion College and Dutch Electric Aviation Centre aim to develop a flying test bed for sustainable aviation. The collaborative group has acquired a Cessna 337F Skymaster with the intent to replace one of the engines with a retrofit hydrogen internal combustion engine. An ancillary engine will...

As part of a project to modify one of the engines of a Cessna Skymaster to operate on hydrogen, a test set-up is designed. A crucial part of this design is the Safety Analysis, for which a risk analysis must be performed. In this thesis, an in depth analysis of the probability of one of the risks involved in engine testing with hydrogen is...

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 such as 3D scanning, thermography and shearography. The research aims to quantify the effects of changes in blade properties on rotor vibration levels for CH-47 Chinook. This is...

To reduce the environmental impact of aviation, new aircraft configurations are investigated. One of these researches is the PARSIFAL project, that investigates an efficient box-wing aircraft for passenger transport. In previous work, an engine sizing tool is developed to design the engines of the PARSIFAL aircraft. The tool is developed as part...

The current focus in the aviation industry for more sustainable designs, could mean the revive of propeller propulsion, due to their relative high propulsion efficiency compared to jets. In addition, the application of wingtip-mounted propellers installed in tractor configuration can be used as tip-vortex attenuating devices, reducing the wing...

van Uitert, Jeroen (author)
This research has been performed with the purpose of understanding the cause of the unstable pitch break experienced by the Flying V at a lift coefficient of CL = 0.95. Without understanding and possibly elimination of the pitch break, the flying V’s usable maximum lift coefficient is lower and the pitching moment behavior and gust response...

Because of the expected return of civil supersonic flight, research is required to update supersonic noise regulations to allow public acceptance of civil supersonic flights. To advise ICAO on whether future supersonic aircraft will be able to comply with current regulations this thesis predicts the noise production of future supersonic...

Wingtip-mounted propellers have the ability to enhance the propeller-wing system performance. For inboard-up rotating tractor propellers, the swirl in the propeller slipstream can be used on the wing to reduce the influence of the wingtip vortex, decreasing drag. Furthermore, lift is enhanced by increasing dynamic pressure and angle of attack...

With the global increase in passenger traffic and growing popularity of long-haul routes over the Asia Pacific region and Atlantic Ocean, the possibility for hypersonic transport could become an attractive option to reduce flight time over long distance from 16-20 hours down to around 4-5 hours. In this thesis, a Multi-Disciplinary Optimisation...

The Flying-V is a novel flying wing concept where the main lifting surface has been fully integrated with the passenger cabin. Previous studies have focused on the aerodynamic and structural design of the airframe; but, prior to determining which engine-airframe integration alternative is most beneficial (e.g. boundary layer ingestion, distributed...

An unexploited rotational momentum, i.e. swirl, is present in the slipstream of propellers. Stationary vanes, called swirl recovery vanes (SRVs), have been proven to be effective in increasing the propulsive efficiency of propellers. There is however no conclusive answer in literature on the noise effect of SRVs. Additionally, as the propeller...
