Thorough understanding of flexible wing structural and aerodynamic properties is crucial to reduce uncertainties in the design process of energy generating kite systems. A flexible leading edge inflatable (LEI) tethered kite connected to a drum-generator module is currently being developed by the Airborne Wind Energy research group at TU Delft...

Recent decades, an ongoing trend has emerged in the upscaling of wind turbines in order to compete with traditional energy resources. For conventional wind turbines, aside from improving safety, the driving factors for new designs have always been increased efficiency and performance. This has led to novel wind turbine designs comprising thin...

In dredging operation, the high-pressure water jet is widely used for the excavation of soil. To study the jetting process and optimize the dredging devices, the moving vertical water jet penetrating cohesive soil experiments were carried out by Nobel (2013). However, in terms of the design optimization for the dredging...

Flapping wings display complex flows which can be used to generate large lift forces. Flexibility in wings is widely used by natural flyers to increase the aerodynamic performance. The influence of wing flexibility on the flow can be computed using numerical analysis with Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI). However, there is a lack of open-source...

Pipeline networks are extensively used in the oil and gas industry to transport fluids under multiphase flow conditions from the wells to the production platforms or plants. Over time, the flow rate of the production fluid decreases as the reservoir pressure decreases. When the flow rate decreases to below a certain value, unstable flow with...

The aerodynamic drag force is a crucial factor for passenger cars and trucks, where fuel economy is of utmost importance. While a lot of research has been performed to optimize the design of the upper-body of the vehicle, the flow over a rotating wheel that is enclosed by a wheelhouse is not understood to the same level. Estimates show that the...

The continued grow of the wind industry has resulted in an increase in turbine cluster density in wind farms. This has made the topic of wind turbine and wind farm wake aerodynamics more relevant than ever. Wind turbine wake models are used to predict the deficit and recovery of the wind velocities in the wake. The currently used wake models in...
