The Delft University of Technology is developing an MDO tool for the conceptual design of transport aircraft. However, the current program is not able to investigate the influence of the undercarriage design on the weight, drag and geometry of transport aircraft. This research proposes a new design method for the undercarriage, for which a new...

The aim of this investigation is to provide an experimental volumetric visualization of the near wake topology of the vortex structures generated by a flapping-wing Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) by means of large-scale Robotic PIV. This novel technique implements coaxial illumination and imaging in combination with the use of Helium Filled Soap...

Despite widespread research into the possibilities of improving aerodynamic efficiency, a plateau seems to have been reached for the conventional configuration. Hence, the potential of unconventional configurations are being investigated in recent years. Flying V is one such configuration that promises a lift to drag ratio about 24 in cruise...

Aircraft manufacturers have to prove a flutter free design for all operational cases within the complete flight envelope plus a safety margin. This certification process relies on validated flutter computations which have to be made for all flight conditions including variations in the aircraft's loading and failure cases. The aerodynamic...

Prediction of heat loads during hypersonic re-entry is of great interest in space exploration and in the topic of space debris as well. To date, there is no accurate method to reproduce either experimentally or numerically the physics in re-entry conditions. On the numerical side, high-order discontinuous Galerkin methods have potential to...

Turbulence closure models will continue to be necessary in order to perform computationally affordable simulations in the foreseeable future. It is expected that Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) turbulence models will still be useful with the further development of the more accurate, but computationally expensive large eddy simulation (LES...

Mimetic discretisation techniques are a growing field in computational physics research. Among these techniques, the recently developed mimetic spectral element method allows for exact discretisation of metric independent relations. This has been proven numerically in various mixed formulations, for instance the mixed velocity-vorticity-pressure...

In this work, we model a multi-robot formation planning and control task as an optimization problem, which we solve on-line and in a decentralized manner using the Stochastic Optimal Control (SOC) framework. Typically, the solution of a SOC problem requires solving the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equation for all system states and controls....

In operational airline crew scheduling, one of the major tasks is to allocate flight activities to individual crew members. This task is referred to as the crew rostering problem; an optimization problem that aims to assign flights to crew members in a cost-effective way, while also considering preferences of crewmembers. Flights are combined...

Compressed natural gas (CNG) has been gaining attention in the automotive industry since it allows for a substantial reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. Recent advancements in direct-injection technology have contributed to an increase in volumetric efficiency and engine power, but the physical modeling of such gaseous injection with...

Aircraft base maintenance consists of hundreds of tasks including preventive, corrective and modification tasks which have to be scheduled to a few check moments per year. The allocation of tasks to checks represents a complex scheduling problem due to the constraints involved. A mixed integer linear programming model was developed to optimize...

The Deployable SpaceTelescope Project was started at Delft University of Technology in 2014. The projectaims to develop an ultra-high resolution Earth Observation telescope with aresolution of 0.25m, but with a much lower mass and volume than its competitorscurrently in operation. In order to meet the stringent mass...

This research focuses on GNSS users interested in a faster position fix in a situation where the receiver holds limited data. This occurs when turning on a mobile phone or sport watch to use a location-based service, driving out of a parking garage with a navigational device or activating a search & rescue beacon. In these cases, users care...

A high drop-out rate is present during current-day air traffic controller (ATCo) training, because the required expertise level is not reached. The determination of the expertise level of ATCo students is currently performed using subjective assessments at a late stage in the training by means of high-fidelity simulator sessions. It is desired...
