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...

The increasing availability of condition monitoring data for aircraft components has incentivized the development of Remaining Useful Life (RUL) prognostics in the past years. However, only few studies consider the integration of such prognostics into maintenance planning. In this paper we propose a dynamic, predictive maintenance scheduling...

Reliability-based and risk-based methods for directing maintenance activities play a critical role in ensuring system safety and reducing unnecessary downtime. Those methods focus on preventive maintenance to avoid component failures and are applicable before unexpected disruptions occur. However, when disruptions are unavoidable, more attention...

Similarly to Maslow’s pyramid of human needs, we theorize that cities have a pyramid of bicycle network needs that depends on their level of bicycle culture. As an increasing number of data sources emerge for bicycle data collection, transport authorities face the challenge of understanding how to use the data and which data sources are fit for...

The interaction between forward-facing steps of several heights and a pre-existing critical stationary crossflow instability of a swept-wing boundary layer is analysed. Direct numerical simulations (DNS) are performed of the incompressible three-dimensional laminar base flow and the stationary distorted flow that arise from the interaction...

Satellite radar altimetry has been an important tool for cryospheric applications such as measuring ice-sheet height or assessing anomalies in snow and ice properties (e.g. the extensive melt in Greenland in 2012). Although accurate height measurements are key for such applications, slope-induced errors due to undulating topography within the...

In this paper, we propose open machine learning models that can provide airport delay predictions in a network with an error of around or less than five minutes. Due to the complexity of different components of air traffic networks, traditional flight performance model-based predictions fall short when dealing with numerous flights and often are...

Different Design Driving Load constraints (DDLs), are explored in this work to determine under which constraints and conditions a winglet can have an added value to the wind turbine blade design. Multi-objective Bayesian optimization is used to maximize the rotor's power production while minimizing the flapwise DDLs. Surrogate models, created...

The impact of aerodynamic loading on a serrated trailing edge is studied experimentally. Aerodynamic and acoustic measurements are conducted on a sawtooth-shaped trailing edge, retrofitted to a flat plate featuring a trailing-edge flap, and placed at incidence to the free-stream flow. The turbulent flow across the trailing edge is inspected...

This paper studies the climate impact of propeller aircraft which are optimized for either minimum direct operating costs, minimum fuel mass, or minimum average temperature response (ATR100). The latter parameter provides a measure of the global warming impact of the aircraft design, considering both CO2 and non-CO2 effects. We study turboprop...

The aerodynamic loads on a flexible wing in terms of the surface pressure distribution and the lift force along the span are determined experimentally based on non-intrusive Lagrangian particle tracking (LPT) measurements. As the flexible wing deforms under the aerodynamic loads, its deformed shape is first reconstructed based on structural LPT...

Quad-plane is a popular type of electric vertical and takeoff/landing (eVTOL) vehicle that hybridizes a quadrotor and a fixed-wing airplane. However, the mechanical simplicity of a quad-plane also makes it vulnerable to rotor failures. When a complete rotor fails, it becomes physically impossible to stop the quad-plane from fast yaw spinning,...

Aviation is the backbone of our modern society. In 2019, around 4.5 billion passengers travelled through the air. However, at the same time, aviation was also responsible for around 5% of anthropogenic causes of global warming. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the aviation sector in the short term is clearly very high, but the long-term...

Several morphing unmanned aircraft systems which can be deployed in-flight are currently being developed for a variety of missions. Key to a successful in-flight deployment of these aircraft is that they enter a stable and controllable flight phase following a potentially highly dynamic transition phase without exceeding structural limitations....

Most acoustic imaging methods assume the presence of point sound sources and, hence, may fail to correctly estimate the sound emissions of distributed sound sources, such as trailing-edge noise. In this contribution, three integration techniques are suggested to overcome this issue based on models considering a single point source, a line...

An experimental investigation of shock-shock interactions has been conducted with the aim of studying the transition between Regular (RI) and Mach (MI) interactions induced by a variation of the inflow Mach number. The experiments were conducted in the TST-27 wind tunnel at Delft University of Technology. For all cases, the wind tunnel runs were...

One of the geometrical restrictions associated with printed paste materials such as concrete, is that material must be self-supporting during printing. In this research paper a new methodology for 3D Printing Concrete onto a temporary freeform surface is presented. This is achieved by setting up a workflow for combining a Flexible Mould...

Fast and accurate computation of thermo-physical properties is essential in computationally expensive simulations involving fluid flows that significantly depart from the ideal gas or ideal liquid behavior. A look-up table algorithm based on unstructured grids is proposed and applied to non-ideal compressible fluid dynamics simulations. The...
