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...

This paper presents an experimental and numerical study of composite plates, analyzing the interaction between mechanical and thermal loads related to buckling and the occurrence of mode jumping. A novel experimental setup for thermomechanical testing was developed. The setup is conceived around a frame with a low coefficient of thermal...

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...

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...

To counter the climate effects of flying, we must start a revolution in aviation.<br/>Solutions must and will be found. I believe we’re at a new dawn of aviation.

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...

Objective: This study tested whether simulator-based training of pilot responses to unexpected or novel events can be improved by including unpredictability and variability in training scenarios. Background: Current regulations allow for highly predictable and invariable training, which may not be sufficient to prepare pilots for unexpected...

Airborne wind energy is an evolving renewable energy technology with the potential to reduce material as well as energy investments and to harvest wind resources that have so far not been accessible. Ground generation systems use the pulling force of a kite to generate a linear traction motion driving a drum connected to a generator. To...

Two-matrix composites combine fibers with two distinct matrices. This is achieved by impregnating fiber bundles with a high-stiffness matrix and embedding the cured bundles in a flexible matrix. Two-matrix composites have been shown to offer unprecedented combinations of transverse flexibility and longitudinal tensile strength, and could offer...

The momentum transferred to the fluid by a running propeller contains not only the desired axial component but also a rotational component that does not contribute to the propeller thrust. By introducing a set of swirl-recovery vanes (SRVs) downstream of the propeller, part of the rotational flow in the slipstream can be redirected into the...

This paper presents an approach for updating the epistemic uncertainty of ultrasonic flow meter measurements under non-ideal flow conditions. Instead of re-calibrating the instrument to correct its behavior in these difficult working conditions, a Bayesian calibration of a computer model of the real process is used. The numerical model is...
