Blended wing body aircraft represent a paradigm shift in jet transport aircraft design. Stepping away from the conventional tube-and-wing philosophy, they promise benefits over existing or future conventional aircraft. The most significant challenge with the concept is the increased coupling between aircraft design disciplines that has...

In aeroengine design, predicting the effects of design parameters on total engine performance is extremely difficult, as all engine components are interrelated. Therefore, engine design tools are needed which provide the designer with more insight on the design process. This thesis focusses on the design of the fan and booster stages of a high...

For conceptual aircraft design to include accurate laminar flow prediction, a link between modern computational tools to determine laminar-to-turbulent boundary layer transition and fast sizing methods is required. For swept wings, it is crucial to include the highly unstable three-dimensional crossflow component of the boundary layer. These...

The Center for Quantum Technologies (CQT), which belongs to the National University of Singapore (NUS) is developing a nanosatellite to host their miniaturized Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) payload called SPEQS. QKD makes it possible to generate encryption keys through the use of strongly correlated photons. This would allow two parties to...

Hypresearch is a project that has been under development with the collaboration of ATG Europe, TU Delft, TNO for the past 7+ years. The eventual goal of the project is to fly a hypersonic research vehicle at Mach 6 (2 km/s) at an altitude of 42km for a continuous time interval of 360 seconds. Before this goal can be attained, however, several...

For modern transonic transport aeroplanes, it is important to produce low drag at high cruise speeds. The root effect, caused by effects of symmetry on swept wings, decreases the performance of these aeroplanes. During aeroplane design, root modifications are applied to counteract this decrease in performance. Most conceptual aeroplane design...

The design methodology and testing of an aeroelastically tailored wing subjected to manoeuvre loads is presented in this paper. The wing is designed using an aeroelastic analysis tool that is composed of a closely coupled nonlinear beam model and a vortex lattice aerodynamic model. The globally convergent method of moving asymptotes is used to...

A large number of wind energy installations exist on rich wind resource sites. Nevertheless, estimates show that about 50% of the world’s wind energy resource has a wind speed of 7 m/s or less. For these low wind speed resource areas, low wind turbine technology is required. For this reason, this DTU Wind Energy master project, in cooperation...

To improve the pointing capabilities of nanosatellites a fast response attitude control system is required. Reaction wheels are an effective solution and rely on the simple principle of conservation of angular momentum. Also they can be developed within the stringent budgets of nanosatellites with current technologies. The Delfi-n3Xt satellite...

This thesis introduces a new parameterization technique based on the Class-Shape-Transformation (CST) method. The new technique consists of an extension to the CST method in the form of a refinement function based on B-splines. This Class-Shape-Refinement-Transformation (CSRT) method has the same advantages as the original CST method, while also...

Traditionally, the aircraft design process is divided into three phases: conceptual, preliminary and detailed design. In each subsequent phase, the fidelity of the analysis tools increases and more and more details of the design geometry are frozen. In each phase a number of design variants is generated, fully analyzing them with the tools...

Kites have seen substantial development in the last 10 years, going from mostly toys to high-performance sports-related equipment for e.g. kite surfing. The design process of these kites, however, is mostly a trial-and-error affair. Ten years after the sports-related kite revolution a new development is is emerging: Industrial applications for...

The process of developing a tool aiming for conceptual design of nano- and microsatellites is described. The various challenges and derived solutions are discussed. The final product offers systems engineers a fast way to analyze the feasibility of a particular design concept. The tool differs from existing tools in that it is specifically...

The shoulder joint provides us with a large range of motion. This is enabled by the shallowness of the glenoid cavity and the cooperation of many bone elements of the shoulder girdle. This results in complex biomechanics and dependency to surrounding soft tissues for its stability. Due to a fracture or joint diseases, a shoulder replacement may...

Like most other types of instrumentation systems, flight test instrumentation is not produced in series; its development is a one-time achievement by a test department. With the introduction of powerful digital computers, instrumentation systems have included data analysis tasks that were previously limited to post-experiment processing. However...
