Bird strike simulations require accurate information about the nonlinear material properties of the bird and structure, dynamic changes in contact between bird and structure, and large displacements and rotations of the structural elements. The soft-body nature of birds allows it to flow fluidly upon impact, making accurate simulation validation...

The present study, which was carried out in collaboration with GKN Fokker, focuses on incorporating bird strike crashworthiness requirements within a multidisciplinary optimization (MDO) framework. During the preceding three-month internship in the same company, a pivotal contribution to this project was the development of an Abaqus interface...

The Flying-V aircraft concept promises better fuel-burn performance over conventional tube-and-wing configurations, integrating the passenger cabin and cargo volume into the lifting surface. However, the wing-fuselage and cockpit windows of the Flying-V are exposed to the flight direction, posing a new challenge to the design and...

Bird strikes are one major accident for aircraft engines and can inflict heavy casualties and economic losses. In this study, a smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) mallard model has been used to simulate bird impact to rotary aero-engine fan blades. The simulations were performed using the finite element method (FEM) at LS-DYNA. The...

Bird strike prevention in civil aviation has traditionally focused on the airport perimeter. Since the risk of especially damaging bird strikes outside the airport boundaries is rising, this PhD thesis researches the safety potential of operational bird strike prevention involving pilots and controllers. In such a concept, controllers would be...

Involving air traffic controllers and pilots into the bird strike prevention process is considered an essential step to increase aviation and avian safety. Prior to implementing operational measures such as real-time warning systems, it is vital to evaluate their feasibility. This paper studies the efficacy of a bird strike advisory system for...

To study the effect of a bird striking engine fan on the rotor system, a low-pressure rotor system dynamic model based on a real aero-engine structure was established. Dynamic equations were derived considering the case of the bird strike force which transferred to the rotor system. The bird strike force was obtained from the bird strike...

Collisions between birds and aircraft pose a severe threat to aviation and avian safety. To understand and prevent these bird strikes, knowledge about the factors leading to these bird strikes is vital. However, even though it is a global issue, data availability strongly varies and is difficult to put into a global picture. This paper aims...

This paper presents a collision avoidance algorithm to prevent bird strikes for aircraft departing from an airport. By using trajectory-information of aircraft and birds, the algorithm predicts potential collisions. Collision avoidance is performed by delaying departing aircraft until they can follow a collision-free trajectory. An...

Annually, thousands of birds collide with aircraft. The impact usually has lethal<br/>consequences for the bird, the involved aircraft can experience severe damage. The highest bird strike risk occurs at low altitudes. Therefore, aircraft within the airport area as well as the adjacent approach and departure corridors are especially vulnerable...
