The CleanEra project was initiated with the goal of developing revolutionary ideas for civil aviation. These ideas were to offer solutions which would limit and reduce some of the negative aspects of aviation, namely: emissions and the use of resources. This book presents you with the highlights of this journey in search of new technologies for...

Airborne wind energy is an emerging field in the renewable energy technologies that aims to replace the use of fossil fuels for energy production on an economical basis. A characteristic feature of the various concepts that are currently pursued is the use of tethered flying devices to access wind energy at higher altitudes where the wind is...

This book deals with the motion of the center of mass of a spacecraft; this discipline is generally called astrodynamics. The book focuses on an analytical treatment of the motion of spacecraft and provides insight into the fundamentals of spacecraft orbit dynamics. A large number of topics are treated in a uniform and consistent way. The text...

Symposium organised by Ghent University, Department of Structural Engineering and Delft University of Technology, Aerospace Structures & Materials. Materials play an extremely important role in our lives. These materials may be of a very different nature ranging from metals over concrete to polymers and composite materials. They all have in...

Air transport must evolve if it is to optimize its value in the 21st century. The mood in the aerospace industry is positive with regard to economic recovery, but the focus in this transitional time must be on sustaining value, without losing sight of environmental and safety priorities

The moisture content and migration in cementitious materials determine its time dependent response. Much research has been do ne over the last decades to gain insight in these phenomena and to distinguish between true and apparent mechanisms of creep and shrinkage. However, experimentally as well as computationally much remains to be done to...

Computer Assisted Design (CAD) environments have become important devices for the design and evaluation of flight control systems. For general use, different aircraft and operational conditions should be easily implemented in such a CAD environment and it should be equipped with a set of simulation and analysis tools. To extend its...

Residual stresses are present after elevated temperature cure of adhesively bonded patches to cracked aircraft structures. These residual stresses will affect the performance and the durability of the repair. Strain and temperature measurements were taken on a real aircraft fuselage section during and after repair at three locations. Thermal...

A new method is described to make foamable films for the production of in-situ foamed sandwiches. The method consists of placing a polymer film in a bath with a swelling agent and, when equilibrium swelling has been reached, placing the film in a bath with a second liquid. If the liquids are miscible the swelling agent in the film will be...

Mayer, R. (author)
Wall-shear stresses are highly important in the aerodynamic design of aircraft, because they determine the drag and thus the fuel consumption of an airplane. Due to this importance many different measurement techniques have been developed. Most of these techniques are intrusive, which means that the flow is disturbed by the presence of a...

The estimation of the autocorrelation function (act) or the spectral density function (sdt) from LDA data poses unique data-processing problems. The random sampling times in LDA preclude the use of the spectral methods for equi-spaced samples. As a consequence, special data-processing algorithms are used to process the LDA data. However, the...

An overview is given on the background of different turbulence models that can be used to compute boundary layers in external aerodynamics, such as for aircraft. The overview includes algebraic models (Cebeci-Smith, Baldwin-Lomax), a half-equation model (Johnson-King), two-equation models ( K-E-K-), and a differential Reynolds-stress model. The...

Fractographic observations on fatigue tested 2024 T3 clad aluminium riveted lap-splice joints indicate oblique fronts after the initial surface or corner crack at a rivet hole has penetrated through the sheet thichness. No stress intensity factor solutions are available for this geometry subjected to remote biaxial tension, remote bending, rivet...

The boundary layer along the fuselage, wings and tailplanes of aircraft will usually be laminar at the leading edge and will become unstable further downstream. Once the boundary layer has become unstable it will undergo transition to turbulence. Stability and transition can be considered as one of the most complex problems of fluid dynamics....
