The most effective way to decrease the cost of energy of wind turbines is to increase the rotor diameter. Therefore, this calls for the need of aerodynamic research on large wind turbines. This thesis project will tackle the topics addressed by the IEA Wind Task 47 which is focused on the aerodynamic analysis and comparison of the newly proposed...

The healthcare systems of developed countries are getting more centralized and specialized. In order for this trend to continue one requires a reliable medical emergency delivery system. Both governments and private companies recognize that drones might be a good fit for this job. Previous qualitative studies suggest benefits of an Unmanned...

Distant Retrograde Orbits (DROs) are special orbits for third bodies in two-body systems. The third body revolves around the secondary – the smaller of the two primaries – in a retrograde way, meaning the direction is opposite to the direction that the primaries revolve around each other. DROs are not close to either of the primaries, making it...

Propeller technology offers high efficiency and therefore it is increasingly attractive for sustainable aviation concepts. Leading edge mounted propellers blow the wing and thus can augment the wing lift however they also introduce undesirable interaction effects. This study focuses on understanding and addressing the interaction effects...

To reduce the environmental impact of the aviation sector in Europe, climate goals have been set as stated in the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal. This reduction can be achieved by fleet replacement with electrified aircraft. Challenging is that electrified aircraft are yet in a conceptual phase and most likely suitable for smaller...

The Flying-V novel aircraft design aims at reducing fuel consumption by an innovative low-drag, fuselage-free geometry. However, possible issues related to certification requirements have been noted regarding longitudinal handling qualities at low speed, the pull-up manoeuver, and the flight path angle response. This study aims at investigating...

The increased pressure to reduce aircraft emissions and the growing demand for air travel causes airports to consider alternatives for fuel-inefficient aircraft taxiing. External towing tugs can be deployed to effectively reduce on-ground fuel burn of outbound aircraft. These new operations are likely to aggravate ground delays as a result of...

Interest grows rapidly in electric and hybrid electric aircraft. To determine the optimal performance and energy management required with such novel powertrain configurations, a knowledge-based aircraft and powertrain performance model is developed. The model is then used to set up an optimal control problem, which is transcribed to a non-linear...

Research and development of thermoplastic composites has been ever increasing owing to the advantages brought by it over conventional materials such as metals and thermoset composites. Higher processing rates, automation, the possibility to recycle, weldability and better mechanical and chemical properties are some of them. Fusion bonding of...

Self-healing of creep-induced damage in newly designed 12Cr self-healing ferritic steels is studied. The damage healing is achieved by the segregation of supersaturated solute atoms at the free surface of the creep-induced cavities, and in this research, the healing phase is the W-riched Laves phase. Two kinds of self-healing steel with...

With the maturization of the cubesat market, the requirements for finer control over satellite attitude drives the development of higher performance Attitude Determination and Control Systems. (ADCS)<br/><br/>The ADCS uses reaction wheels as an actuation method, which in turn use brushless DC (BLDC) motors to rotate a heavy rotor wheel. BLDC...

The applications for which the data from Earth observation satellites can be used are dependent on the precision and accuracy of the position of the satellite. Hence, precise orbit determination of satellites is crucial for the success of Earth observation satellites like the Sentinel family of satellites. TU Delft is an analysis center of the...

Aviation activity results in around 5% of global climate impact, for which both the sources and the manner to improve through technology, operations, and policy need to be better understood. Therefore, a Scenario-based assessment through AirClim is done, assessing future efforts and their support for the Paris Agreement goals. The baseline...

Context: The Galilean moons are expected to have formed in a circumplanetary disk (CPD) and exhibit a characteristic compositional gradient: an increasing ice mass fraction with increasing distance from Jupiter. Ice released from hydrated silicates formed inside planetesimals might be the cause of this compositional gradient. One of the...

Reduced-order models (ROMs) are commonly used to reduce the complexity of large-scale fluid dynamics problems. The main technique to obtain their basis is proper orthogonal decomposition (POD), where an energy-based basis is obtained. Such a basis is derived without considering the governing equations. Moreover, if the flow dynamics are not...
