Mertens, C. (author)
This thesis presents a novel measurement approach for aeroelastic wind tunnel testing. The key novelty of this approach is the integrated measurement of aerodynamic and structural quantities using an optical technique. The considered approach consists of combined measurements of flow tracer particles and structural markers using a Lagrangian...

D'Aguanno, A. (author)
The flight envelope of an aircraft operating at high subsonic velocities is bounded by several limitations, one of these consists in thewing experiencing oscillations of a shockwave on its suction side for a certain range ofMach number (Ma), angle of attack (®) and Reynolds number (Re). This phenomenon is referred to as transonic buffet and it...

Hu, W. (author)
The backward/forward-facing step (BFS/FFS) is one of the canonical geometries in aerospace engineering applications, the flow field over which has attracted extensive attention in the past decades. In a supersonic flow, laminar-to-turbulent transition and shock wave/boundary layer interaction (SWBLI) can occur over these configurations, which...

De Oliveira Andrade, G.L. (author)
This thesis investigates the efficiency of wind energy conversion from three aerodynamic perspectives. The first, purely theoretical, assumes steady inviscid flow conditions to identify multi-rotor setups that can extract more power per unit area than isolated rotors. The second, more practical perspective, assesses the extent to which site...

Groot, K.J. (author)
Laminar-turbulent transition dictates an increase in skin friction. The resulting turbulent skin friction contributes to approximately 40% of the total drag of commercial aircraft. Reducing the turbulent flow region by postponing transition can therefore significantly reduce the carbon footprint and costs of flying. Transition prediction is...

van Gent, P.L. (author)
Pressure reconstruction based on particle image velocimetry (PIV) refers to the determination of pressure data from pictures of small tracer particles added to a flow. The technique possesses a unique combination of beneficial characteristics in that it non-intrusively provides simultaneous pressure and velocity data in the flow field without...

Humble, R.A. (author)
A fundamental experimental study is carried out to investigate the unsteady flow organization of an incident shock wave/turbulent boundary layer interaction at Mach 2.1. Planar and tomographic particle image velocimetry (PIV) are used in combination with data processing using the proper orthogonal decomposition (POD), complemented with hot-wire...
