Janssen, M. (author)
This thesis was conducted at KVE Composites Group (The Hague, The Netherlands). The aim of this thesis is to create an aeroelastic model that can be used during the design phase of these rotor blade projects. An aeroelastic was created consisting of a Ritz-Hamilton structural model, a lifting line quasi steady aerodynamic model with two inflow...

The application of thrust vectoring on civil transport aircraft has only been studied by a few individuals. Quantified investigations need to be carried out to search for the potential benefits of the application of thrust vectoring control on a civil transport aircraft. Blended Wing Body configuration is a novel aircraft concept. Due to the...

The subject of this research is a new concept of modular aircraft designed to cope with the seasonal variation in passenger demand by opening the fuselage and increasing its length with extra bits of fuselages. The goal is to find out if this new aircraft concept is more profitable than the current alternatives. Previous work have looked at...

As circuit testing days are expensive and limited by regulations, racing teams are more and more dependent on simulation tools. Van Amersfoort Racing built their own racing simulator to train drivers in an fully controlled environment. This environment is based on commercially available simulation software rFactor. However, no research on the...

A research simulation model was created to perform extended research into formation flight dynamic behaviour. The principle of aircraft flying in formation is to lower the induced drag and fuel flow. A trail aircraft that flies within the wake vortex field of a lead aircraft encounters an increased effective angle of attack, reducing the induced...

Civil Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are outnumbered compared to the military equivalents. They could however be of great value to various organizations, companies and the general public. They currently seem to be on the verge of a breakthrough. An interesting technology that could help increase the flight performance of civil UAVs is the micro...

Because of the focus on weight minimization, aircraft are becoming more and more flexible. Therefore, the frequency separation between flight mechanics motion and structural vibration decreases. This calls for a flight mechanics model that includes aeroelasticity. The development of such a model was the subject of the current research. This...

Offshore wind energy is expected to generate a large part of Europe’s sustainable electrical energy by the year 2020. In the design of an offshore wind farm a large number of components interact with each other, resulting in a certain cost of electricity. In order to reduce these costs of electricity the design of an offshore wind farm can be...

The design of the landing gear is one of the prime aspects of aircraft design. Literature describes the design process thoroughly, however the integration of these design methods within an automated design framework has had little focus in literature. Landing gear design includes different engineering disciplines including structures, weights,...

The basic model of the principle of crosswind power as described by Miles M. Loyd in 1980 (Loyd, 1980), promises a high energy revenue from airborne wind energy. With a growing awareness of the need of sustainable energy resources and the current technological possibilities, different initiatives are undertaken to harvest the energy of wind at...

Kite power has only recently gained serious interest from industry and scientists, but the technology is advancing fast through various projects around the globe. The prospect of cheap wind energy is appealing to investors in the current political and social climate. One of the promising concepts is the Laddermill, which features a tether that...

Delft University of Technology (TU-Delft) is investigating the use of resistance heaters as a means to increase the specific impulse of cold nitrogen gas thrusters. There are currently envisaged for use on micro- and nano-sized spacecraft. To this effect, TU-Delft developed the Delft University Resistojet (DUR) thruster with the purpose to heat...
