As of present the Urban Air Mobility market has been dominated by fully electric aircraft. However, hydrogen vehicles have remained relatively undeveloped in this segment, also because hydrogen poses additional design complexities and uncertainties concerning crashworthiness, fuel cell cooling, and low volumetric density. Nevertheless, hydrogen...

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is a leading technique that allows flow velocity measurements in two- and three- dimensional domains. PIV is a full-field, non-intrusive and quantitative technique. However, due to the complexity of the measurement chain, PIV results are often affected by errors from various sources. It is therefore necessary to...

Gonzalez Saiz, G. (author)
Experimental aeroelasticity has been hindered by the intrusivity of measurement equipment and complexity of the experimental setups. Advancements in hardware development have been encouraging optical tracking techniques to replace cross correlation approaches in experimental aerodynamics. However, digital image correlation (DIC) is still the...

A flying aircraft consumes fuel to overcome air resistance during its motion. A significant part of this consumption (55%) is due to turbulent skin friction arising at the interface of the aircraft surface and the air. The current work aims to develop and investigate relevant turbulent skin-friction reduction techniques and assist in advancing...

Wind-turbine noise can restrict the growing implementation of renewable energy sources and their application close to urban environments. The largest contributor to the noise of modern turbines is the scattering of the turbulent fluctuations at the blade trailing edge. This source of noise is directly correlated with the turbine’s extracted...

The aerodynamic characteristics of a modern road cycling wheel in cross wind are studied through force- and planar PIV measurements in the TU Delft Open Jet Facility. The performance of the 62 mm deep rim is evaluated for three tire profiles, and yaw angles up to 24°. All measurements are executed at 12.5 m/s (45 km/h) freestream- and wheel...

The unsteady flow behaviour of two side-by-side rotors in ground proximity is experimentally investigated. The rotors induce a velocity distribution interacting with the ground causing the radial expansion of the rotor wakes. In between the rotors, an interaction of the two wakes takes place, resulting in an upward flow similar to a fountain....

A semi-emperical model is developed, able to capture the aeropropulsive performance characteristics of Over-The-Wing propellers at incidence. The model is based on an hypothesis on the interactions of the propeller- and wing-induced flow fields. Effects of these interactions on the both the thrust and lift are written in a form in which the...

This work discusses the physics of noise reduction achieved from serrated trailing–edges and its impact by the serration design. An experimental campaign is carried out with a benchmark 2D model based on a NACA 63<sub>3</sub>–018 airfoil. Different trailing-edge serrations are tested under several flow speeds and angles of attack conditions...

Volumetric particle tracking velocimetry measurements are performed in a low-speed wind tunnel to study the flow around a 1:12-scale aircraft model with jet engines operating with thrust reversers. The engine jet and freestream flow velocity are varied to yield a jet to freestream velocity ratio of V<sub>jet</sub>/V<sub>∞</sub> ranging from 1...

Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is the state of the art for quantitative, full-field, 3D flow diagnostics. Despite the maturity of the technique, two bottlenecks are identified which are addressed in this thesis: the achievable measurement volume size, and the optical access to geometrically complex objects. Both aspects are well illustrated...

The research presented in this thesis introduces a new measurement concept for on-site aerodynamic measurements based on large-scale stereoscopic particle image velocimetry (stereo-PIV) measurements past an athlete, a vehicle or an object travelling through a quiescent environment. The analysis of the momentumdeficit past the transit poses the...

The occurrence of data outliers in PIV measurements remains nowadays a problematic issue; their effective detection is relevant to the reliability of PIV experiments. This study proposes a novel approach to outliers detection from time-averaged three-dimensional PIV data. The principle is based on the agreement of the measured data to the...

This work describes a modelling approach to SARS-CoV-2 dispersion based on experiments. The main goal is the development of an application integrated in Ansys Fluent to enable computational fluid dynamics (CFD) users to set up, in a relatively short time, complex simulations of virion-laden droplet dispersion for calculating the probability...

A physical description of the flow mechanisms that govern the distribution of the wall-pressure fluctuations over the surface of a serrated trailing edge is proposed. Three main mechanisms that define the variation of turbulent pressure fluctuations across the serrated edge are discussed and semi-empirical models are formulated accordingly....

The wake recovery from planar porous actuators that surrogate the effect of wind turbines is investigated, focusing on rectangular shapes for vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs). We proposed an effective mixing diameter D∗ to scale the streamwise momentum recovery for actuators of arbitrary shape. The length-scale D∗ is given by the ratio...

An experimental investigation is conducted to study the aerodynamic behavior of a two-rotor system in ground proximity. The counter-rotating rotors are placed side-by-side in the hovering condition. The time-averaged and unsteady flow behavior is studied when the rotor-to-rotor lateral distance and the distance between the rotors and the...
