A 3D panel method code, named AWSM3D, is developed as an extension to the AeroModule aerodynamic software suite of TNO which includes a Blade Element Momentum theory (BEM) and a Lifting Line (LL) code. The underlying panel code method is presented along with a gradual process of simulation validation culminating in validating the code against...

One of the novel methodologies in computational physics research is to use mimetic discretisation techniques. Among these, the mimetic spectral element method holds special promise as it not only has the benefits of mimetic methods but also the additional benefit of higher-order discretisations using higher polynomial degrees. These methods are...

Hydrofoils can under certain circumstances cause a phase change from liquid water to water vapor. This phenomenon is called cavitation and is caused by the low pressure over the hydrofoil when the vessel exceeds a certain velocity though the water. Cavitation can take different forms depending the angle of attack α and the flow conditions which...

The purpose of this study has been to develop an aerodynamic load model for the energy harvesting (traction) phase of leading-edge inflatable (LEI) kites operating in an airborne wind energy (AWE) context. The load model stems from multivariate polynomial regression analyses expressing the airfoil lift, drag and moment coefficients as polynomial...

The hunt for new methods to harness wind energy is at an all-time high as wind energy quickly overtakes other renewable energy sources. Deep waters are promising alternatives with higher average wind speed (thus, higher yields) and also due to lesser availability of land on shore. Even though the design of the blades and rotor of a FOWT is...

With an ever increasing demand for sustainable energy, limitations of current sustainable technologies are studied widely. In wind farms, the so-called wake effect provides the biggest limitation on wind farm total power output. Using wind from the unaffected boundary layer to re-energize the wind flow in the wake provides a method of limiting...

It is the need of the hour to focus research and development towards curbing emissions due to the growing aviation industry. Employing boundary layer Ingesting(BLI) propellers for development of propulsive fuselage concept(PFC) aircraft while utilizing hydrogen as an alternative energy source, is the idea behind project APPU(Advanced Propulsion...

Aerodynamics has played a significant role in the industry of motorsports in improving the performance and handling of the race car. Rob Smedley, the former head of vehicle performance at Williams Racing stated that - "Where teams have problems is when their development or simulation environment – so CFD [Computational Fluid Dynamics] or wind...

Several investigations have been undertaken to study the velocity and temperature fields associated with the thermal mixing of fluids, and resulting thermal striping in a T-junction. The T-junction thermal mixing and fatigue phenomenon is a major area of study for the purposes of safety, maintenance and operational life in the nuclear industry,...

Due to the increasing interest in modelling floating offshore wind turbines, simulation tools need to be adapted from fixed-base applications to surge applications. In this study, an open-source inviscid 3D panel method named Vortexje was adapted for surge motion and its ability to capture the physics of severe surge motion (when the rotor...

During a severe accident in a water­-cooled nuclear power plant, large quantities of hydrogen can be generated in the reactor core. The hydrogen mixed with air presents a potential risk of combustion when the hydrogen concentration reaches flammability limits. If combustion occurs, pressure loads can damage safety systems and even compromise the...

The supersonic split line (SSSL) nozzle has been considered for years in the use of solid rocket motors. The SSSL nozzle is an attractive alternative to the more conventional submerged movable (SM) nozzle. The SSSL nozzle can save up to 43% on nozzle mass and 25% on the thrust vector control (TVC) system mass. The SSSL nozzle also has the...

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 increasing importance of climate change and stricter regulations for greenhouse gas emissions raise the pressure on the automotive industry to develop more efficient products. Besides a reduction of emissions by new combustion engines, electric vehicles are being introduced to lower the fleet fuel economy. Especially this new drivetrain...

In order to assess the span-wise load distribution in an aeroelastic gust encounter, a novel method is developed which makes use of marker-based optical tracking. This allows for the prediction of the elastic force and the computation of the inertial force such that Collar's triangle may be quantified during the encounter through an iFEM...

A crosswind pumping kite power system is an Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) system that uses a flying tethered device for energy generation through a ground-based generator. The AWE research group of the TU Delft was one of the first to demonstrate the functioning of such a system. The spin-off Kitepower later on continued the technological...

Resonance ignition devices utilize the gas dynamic phenomenon to heat propellant gases to their auto-ignition temperature in order to initiate combustion. These devices are a promising alternative to current rocket engine ignition systems. In this thesis a python code was developed to generate a resonance ignition system design. The design was...

Due to the limited availability of sites on both land and sea, there is a need to maximize the power density of wind farms whilst limiting the adverse wake effect between the wind turbines that cause power losses and/or increased load cases. The study focuses on analyzing the potential of combining yaw-based wake-steering and constant blade...

Wind energy has emerged as a promising alternative to fossil fuel energy sources over the last two decades partly due to considerable reductions in the cost of power production. A common trend towards cost reduction has been to build larger and lighter wind turbines. These produce more power per unit and use less material. Another strategy for...
