Aircraft LRU (Line Replaceable Unit) MROs (Maintenance, Repair Organization) struggle to meet service levels. To stay competitive, literature describes two strategies; increasing contracted fleet size and not reaching projected repair turn around times. Besides these two strategies, literature does not describe the use of triple echelon order...

Widespread usage of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) has led to various airspace safety breaches, including near mid-air collisions with other aircraft. To ensure safe integration into general aviation, it is paramount that MAVs are equipped with an autonomous detect and avoid system when flying beyond the visual line-of-sight of the operator. The...

This research focused on the techno-economic implementation of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF). Carbon reduction in commercial aviation could be done via four key levers; technological efficiency improvement (aircraft or engine replacement), operational efficiency improvement (air traffic management or airline operations), the implementation of...

The demand for air travel is increasing as more people gain access to commercial aviation. As the current generation of aircraft makes use of fossil fuel combustion, this growth results in an increase in the global emissions. This is at odds with the worldwide efforts of reducing the adverse effects of climate change. Therefore, advanced...

The current focus in the aviation industry for more sustainable designs, could mean the revive of propeller propulsion, due to their relative high propulsion efficiency compared to jets. In addition, the application of wingtip-mounted propellers installed in tractor configuration can be used as tip-vortex attenuating devices, reducing the wing...

The environmental impact of aviation is a well-known issue scientists all around the world are desperate to tackle. The population that can afford air travel is growing and this demand is likely to double within the next 20 years. This increasing demand comes at a hefty price: the emissions of greenhouse gases cause climate change and local air...

BACKGROUND: Recent research indicated that an 18′′ ×30′′ aircraft seat resulted in nearly the same level of comfort as a 17′′ ×34′′ seat. However, it took less space in the floor plan. OBJECTIVES: This study explores seat layouts preferred by experts regarding different criteria. Those results of the experts are later compared to layouts...

BACKGROUND: Scents may influence the perceived comfort of an environment. There are only a few studies conducted on the relationship between scent and comfort in aircraft cabin. OBJECTIVES: The goal of this research is to explore whether relationships between scents and perceived comfort can be found for passengers in an aircraft cabin....

BACKGROUND: The Human-Centered Design methodology advocates VR prototyping, as an effective tool to evaluate concepts in a cost-efficient, time-saving way. It is the question of whether it works in the development of a product intended to increase privacy while flying. OBJECTIVE: The current study aims at the application of virtual reality on...

Airline disruption management is an active field of research. In recent years, there has been an increase in publications, in particular, in of works integrating two or more resources (i.e., aircraft, crew, passengers) in the recovery analysis. Given that more than 50% of the papers have been published after the last literature review paper ...

This paper investigates whether spring-foam technology in an aircraft seat-pan can reduce weight and at the same time provide equal or better comfort. Firstly, through literature studies and using an iterative design process a prototype seat-pan was designed and developed using spring-foam technology. The (dis)comfort of this seat was...

The aerodynamic formation flight, which is also known as aircraft wake-surfing for efficiency (AWSE), enables aircraft to harvest the energy inherent in another aircraft’s wake vortex. As the thrust of the trailing aircraft can be reduced during cruise flight, the resulting benefit can be traded for longer flight time, larger range, less fuel...

Key results from the EU H2020 project CENTRELINE are presented. The research activities undertaken to demonstrate the proof of concept (technology readiness level-TRL 3) for the so-called propulsive fuselage concept (PFC) for fuselage wake-filling propulsion integration are discussed. The technology application case in the wide-body market...

To investigate how an unmanned air vehicle can detect manned aircraft with a single microphone, an audio data set is created in which unmanned air vehicle ego-sound and recorded aircraft sound are mixed together. A convolutional neural network is used to perform air traffic detection. Due to restrictions on flying unmanned air vehicles close to...

Aviation is seeking for ways to reduce its climate impact caused by CO<sub>2</sub> emissions and non-CO<sub>2</sub> effects. Operational measures which change overall flight altitude have the potential to reduce climate impact of individual effects, comprising CO<sub>2</sub> but in particular non-CO<sub>2</sub> effects. We study the impact of...

Because of the expected return of civil supersonic flight, research is required to update supersonic noise regulations to allow public acceptance of civil supersonic flights. To advise ICAO on whether future supersonic aircraft will be able to comply with current regulations this thesis predicts the noise production of future supersonic...

The world is faced with two concurrent trends. The first is the growing demand for air travel in the long term. The second is the need to cut aircraft emissions due to environmental goals and ambitions set by authorities. Fully-electric aircraft are currently infeasible due to the limited battery specific energy and power. Hybrid-electric...

Due to strong demand for air travel before the COVID-19 pandemic, major airports were constrained in capacity and this issue was expected to worsen in the coming decades. Novel aircraft (concepts) could help to alleviate these capacity constraints. However, the market competitiveness and impact of novel aircraft is often challenging to assess,...

In this thesis project, it is investigated to what extent the energy consumption of an electric aircraft can be improved by using a variable pitch and RPM propeller, including energy recuperation during the descent, with respect to a constant pitch propeller. The largest percentage of total mission energy saved using the variable pitch propeller...

The highly fuel-inefficient aircraft taxi-phase causes the industry to consider alternative ground propulsion systems. External systems like the Taxibot are preferred over onboard systems as they do not require aircraft structural additions and recertifications. However, the operational implementation of external taxi-systems is expected to...
