As the Flying-V goes through subsequent design iterations, each new model requires dedicated handling qualities research. A part of that work, namely obtaining the handling qualities predictions, is highly repetitive and can be automated. To address that issue, a Python library for automated handling qualities prediction evaluations of the...

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...

To reduce the environmental impact of aircraft, technological innovations are required. The Flying-V could be one of these technical innovations, as research shows it could be up to 20 % more efficient than regular aircraft of the same size. The Flying-V however has low lateral control authority, and pitch<br/>break-up could occur for high...

Recent research on the Flying V - a flying-wing long-range passenger aircraft - shows that its airframe design is 25% more aerodynamically efficient than a conventional tube-and-wing airframe. The Flying V is therefore a promising contribution towards reduction in climate impact of long-haul flights. However, some design aspects of the Flying V...

Houwing, Daniel (author)
During the redesign of the interior of the Flying-V, especially the Chaise Longue, it is investigated how Virtual Reality (VR) can be used within the design process as an evaluation tool. Can test subjects use VR to provide feedback on conceptual designs? And what are the pros and cons? While these questions are being explored, the results of...

Torelli, Riccardo (author)
The Flying-V novel aircraft design aims at reducing fuel consumption by an innovative low-drag, fuselage-free geometry. However, possible issues related to certification requirements have been noted regarding longitudinal handling qualities at low speed, the pull-up manoeuver, and the flight path angle response. This study aims at investigating...
