Public annoyances due to noise emission in aviation and wind energy sectors are expected to become more severe in the near future with increasing number of civilian flights and wind turbine installations. Such trend demands for deeper investigations into the noise generation mechanisms and the means to mitigate them. This dissertation addresses...

Growing interest in unconventional aircraft designs coupled with miniaturization of electronics and advancements in manufacturing techniques have revived the interest in the use of Sub-scale Flight Testing (SFT) to study the flight behaviour of full-scale aircraft in the early stages of design process by means of free-flying sub-scale models....

Boundary-layer ingestion (BLI) is a propulsor–airframe integration technology that promises substantial fuel consumption benefits for future civil aircraft. This paper discusses an experimental study, conducted within the European Union–funded Horizon 2020 CENTRELINE project, on the aerodynamic performance of an aircraft with a BLI propulsor...

We present ultrabroadband two-beam femtosecond/picosecond coherent Raman spectroscopy on the ro-vibrational spectra of CO<sub>2</sub> and O<sub>2</sub>, applied for multispecies thermometry and relative concentration measurements in a standard laminar premixed hydrocarbon flame. The experimental system employs fs-laser-induced filamentation...

This article describes an experimental investigation of the aerodynamic interaction that occurs between distributed propellers in forward flight. To this end, three propellers were installed in close proximity in a wind tunnel, and the changes in their performance, flow-field characteristics, and noise production were quantified using...

Boundary Layer Ingestion (BLI) is a promising propulsion integration technology capable of enhancing aircraft propulsive efficiency. The Propulsive Fuselage Concept (PFC), a tube-and-wing configuration with an aft-fuselage-mounted BLI propulsor, is particularly suited for BLI. Although extensively studied on a system level, the aerodynamic...

In this combined experimental and numerical study, the propeller–airframe aerodynamic interaction is characterized for an aircraft configuration with propellers mounted to the horizontal tailplane. The contributions of the propeller and airframe to the overall loading are distinguished in the experimental analyses by using a combination of...

The Reynolds number effects on body limbs of a cyclist model, namely leg and arm, are investigated via robotic volumetric Particle Image Velocimetry measurements in the velocity range from 5 ​m/s to 25 ​m/s. The near wakes of such body limbs feature recirculation regions whose width and length are governed not only by the taper of the body...

Abstract: Measurements of distributed surface pressure fluctuations over trailing-edge serrations at a Reynolds number Re <sub>θ</sub> = 4900 are performed with time-resolved 3D particle imaging velocimetry using helium filled soap bubbles as flow tracers. The sparse velocity vector field obtained with Lagrangian particle tracking is densely...

This work evaluates the use of helium-filled soap bubbles (HFSB) for Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements at high Reynolds numbers (up to 3.2 million) in aeronautics. The measurements are performed in the Low Speed Tunnel (LST) of the German-Dutch Wind Tunnels (DNW) using a high-lift airfoil in close-to-stall conditions up to 70 m/s....

A multi-model method for static pressure evaluations based on 3D PTV data is presented. The volumetric measurement domain is partitioned into an irrotational part where pressure is evaluated in a point-wise manner through Bernoulli’s equation, and a rotational domain where the pressure gradient is spatially integrated. In a third step, the field...

The time-segment assimilation (TSA) method levers upon the spatio-temporal information from a finite number of successive time samples of particle velocity, coming from PTV and STB, into a refined spatial reconstruction of the velocity field of the flow. The method recently introduced by Schneiders and Scarano (2018) is elaborated here further...

A novel approach to the measurement of large-scale complex aerodynamic flows is presented, based on the combination of coaxial volumetric velocimetry and robotics. Volumetric flow field measurements are obtained to determine the time-averaged properties of the velocity field developing around a three-dimensional full-scale reproduction of a...

The power spectral density and coherence of temporal pressure fluctuations are obtained from low-repetition-rate tomographic PIV measurements. This is achieved by extension of recent single-snapshot pressure evaluation techniques based upon the Taylor’s hypothesis (TH) of frozen turbulence and vortex-in-cell (VIC) simulation. Finite time...

The variation of transitional flow features past a micro-ramp is investigated when the Reynolds number is decreased approaching the critical regime. Experiments are conducted in the incompressible flow spanning from supercritical to subcritical roughness-height-based Reynolds number ( , 730, 460 and 320) with tomographic particle image...

The accuracy of the “PIV wake rake” method to measure the drag of transiting objects is evaluated. Tomographic Particle Image Velocimetry measurements are conducted on a sphere towed at different speeds, within a Reynolds number range where the drag coefficient is constant. In contrast to PIV wake rake application on steady models in wind...

Some recent trends in the development of PIV techniques are leading to the realization of velocity measurement at large scale. Moreover, methods for evaluating the fluid flow pressure from PIV data have been successfully demonstrated at small scale and for simple geometries.
