van Empelen, Sjoerd (author)
An experimental investigation was done regarding the propulsion system and airframe integration issues associated with the novel Flying V configuration. The experimental investigations involved a series of wind tunnel tests with a 4.6% scale half model, conducted in the TU Delft OJF low speed wind tunnel. Balance measurements allowed significant...

Propellers have a high propulsive efficiency and can help in the reduction of fuel consumption of aircraft. For propellers which are mounted in front of the wing, the interaction of the slipstream with the lifting surfaces can alter the lift distribution significantly. In the use of modern optimization tools, fast and accurate analysis of the...

In early design stages of aircraft, component sizing is to a large extent based on semi empirical methods, which are generally lacking for unconventional aircraft configurations. This increases the uncertainty of the performances of the generated design, such as its stability and controllability. This work aims at using a more physics-based...

The Delft University of Technology is developing an MDO tool for the conceptual design of transport aircraft. However, the current program is not able to investigate the influence of the undercarriage design on the weight, drag and geometry of transport aircraft. This research proposes a new design method for the undercarriage, for which a new...

Despite widespread research into the possibilities of improving aerodynamic efficiency, a plateau seems to have been reached for the conventional configuration. Hence, the potential of unconventional configurations are being investigated in recent years. Flying V is one such configuration that promises a lift to drag ratio about 24 in cruise...

Bruggeman, Anne-Liza (author)
With Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO) a fully automated aircraft design analysis is set up and optimization algorithms are used to obtain better designs by balancing the synergy between components. In the EU project AGILE, a new methodology and framework were developed to make the MDAO approach more accessible to...

Aircraft manufacturers are increasingly exploring emission-free flight or emission reduction for larger passenger aircraft. The low energy density of state-of-the-art battery technology limits the application to small, electric, fixed wing aircraft up to a flight time of approximately one hour. To overcome these limits, a combination of fuel...
