The optimization of interplanetary, low-­thrust trajectories is a computationally expensive aspect of preliminary mission design. To reduce the computational burden associated with it, surrogate models can be used as cheap approximations of the original fitness function. Training the surrogate models in a fully online manner can be done to...

Inspired by nature, smart morphing technologies enable the aircraft of tomorrow to sense their environment and adapt the shape of their wings in flight to minimize fuel consumption and emissions. A primary challenge on the road to this feature is how to use the knowledge gathered from sensory data to establish an optimal shape adaptively and...

Recent trends in aviation highlight the ever-increasing need for fuel economy and sustainability. Active morphing technology can offer significant benefits over conventional wing designs. Inspired by nature, smart morphing technologies enable the aircraft of tomorrow to sense their environment and adapt the shape of their wings in-flight to...

This thesis is about improving the workflow for applying the Performative Computational Architecture (PCA) framework to sun shading design. The PCA framework is a design approach consisting of three phases; form-finding, performance evaluation and optimisation. The conventional workflow in regard to sun shading design is defined as a combination...

This research presents the development and implementation of a methodology for rudder design optimization using front-loading. The project has been performed in cooperation with Fokker Aerostructure, which tries to keep up with the increasing competitiveness in the aviation industry. To support this goal, the Knowledge based Rudder and Interface...

The paper presents ongoing applied research on the development of a computational design tool addressing planning deficiencies in the city of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Because of increasing population pressure and a lack of planning resources, Addis Ababa is clearly in need of new efficient planning solutions. The tool proposed utilizes and...

This study investigates the evolutionary co-optimisation of fuzzy control and system parameters for the Resonating robot Arm (RA). The RA is a novel concept for a pick-and-place manipulator that uses a spring mechanism to reduce the required actuator torques. Since the performance of the total system depends on the combination of the spring...

Spaans, C.J. (author)
Optimization of spacecraft trajectories is an interesting area of research, where a lot of development takes place: in the past years, an optimizer called OPTIDUS was implemented at the chair of Astrodynamics at Delft Univierstiy. This tool is able to do optimization of spacecraft trajectories (and other problems) using an evolutionary algorithm...
