The Environmental Control System (ECS) of passenger aircraft is the main consumer of non-propulsive power aboard. A computationally efficient and accurate thermal model of the fuselage is needed for future sustainable aircraft to address ECS preliminary sizing and control design, as the ECS should be re-designed to exploit possible synergies...

Boundary layer ingestion is an airframe-propulsion integration technology capable of enhancing aircraft propulsive efficiency. The Propulsive Fuselage Concept, a tube-and-wing layout with an rear-fuselage-mounted propulsor in the boundary layer ingestion configuration, especially takes advantage this. However, the relation between physical shape...

The safety of a commercial aircraft is a factor to consider from the early stages of its design to guarantee that this one's structure can protect the occupants inside in a low-speed crash. In an aircraft's primary structure such as a fuselage, where the occupants and cargo should be protected, the design regulations imposed by the EASA have...

Dotman, Thom (author)
The demand for sustainability in aviation is at a historical peak. Efforts from industry and institutions have made the conventional tube-and-wing aircraft greatly efficient, to the degree that a performance ceiling is being approached. Unconventional aircraft configurations promise to reduce fuel burn further, at the cost of design complexity...

Gkekas, Athanasios (author)
This study is an attempt to develop a preliminary composite fuselage sizing tool for the decision making process utilizing analytical structural analysis equations and a bottom-up cost approach to estimate weight and cost. Previous research by several authors and companies is reviewed in order to define the knowledge gaps that the project is...

Poorte, Victor (author)
This thesis aims to provide more insight into the crashworthiness behaviour of a composite aircraft fuselage. This is achieved by studying both analytically and numerically the crushing behaviour of composite energy absorbers. The analytical model, which is based on energy dissipation rates, generalises previously derived analytical models to...

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...

Isgro, Filippo (author)
With the growth of the aviation industry, aircraft designers are pressured for the development of sustainable solutions able to deal with the increase in traffic as well as congested airports. Turnaround time becomes an increasingly important factor contributing to the overall success of an aircraft design. A shorter turnaround time may allow...

This paper proposes an analytical model that uses historical damage dimension data to deduce physical impactor characteristics (size and energy) that has caused a certain resulting damage. Maintenance tasks occur in operations due to impact, however the source of the damage caused in the event remains in most cases unknown. Consequently, by...

This paper summarizes the implementation of a Virtual Testing methodology in an industrial environment to predict the mechanical behaviour of composite material through the different scales of the conventional physical testing pyramid. A robust Virtual Test Lab allows for the generation of virtual allowables, while advanced interface models...

Smeets, Thaïs (author)
Reducing turnaround time and increasing passenger comfort are requirements that should be tackled for medium range flights. Reducing turnaround time could be achieved by increasing the fuselage aisle width and increasing passenger comfort by increasing the space allocated to carry-on luggage. Because research is now looking at novel aircraft...

van der Schaft, Luuk (author)
The Flying V, a concept aircraft configuration, has been proposed by Airbus and TU Berlin. The initial indications of potential improvements in performance over conventional aircraft gave rise to a continuation of the research. For this, the mass characteristics of the configuration must be explored. <br/><br/>A primary structure concept is...

Blended wing body aircraft represent a paradigm shift in jet transport aircraft design. Stepping away from the conventional tube-and-wing philosophy, they promise benefits over existing or future conventional aircraft. The most significant challenge with the concept is the increased coupling between aircraft design disciplines that has...

The application of composites in aircraft structures has grown significantly in the past decade, and an increase in this growth in application has recently been achieved in fuselage designs for large civil aircraft such as the Boeing B787 and the Airbus A350. In conventional design philosophies, weight savings is the primary objective on a part...

Schmidt, R.K. (author)
Research in aircraft design is focusing on novel aircraft configurations in search for a step change in terms of overall transport efficiency. Aircraft design relies heavily on empirical methods, so-called Class 2 methods, to evaluate the performance of a design. Since these methods are based on statistical data their validity is limited when...
