Mendes Fernandes, Fábio (author)
Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) is a particularly relevant technology for addressing the increasing complexity of engineering systems, the need for rapid time-to-market, and the need for achieving reductions in the costs of product development. KBE applications can be effective means of automating repetitive engineering design tasks, enabling...

By 2050, the aviation industry is expected to grow by 250-300% of its current air traffic. If left unchecked, the corresponding increase in atmospheric and noise pollution will have a catastrophic impact on the environment. Thus, improvements in aircraft design are urgently needed for a sustainable growth of the aviation industry. The...

As Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) is gaining in popularity in the industry, the models developed with the technology grow in complexity. The larger KBE models suffer from long (re)generation times and outgrow the memory resources of standard desktop computer. In the meantime, the number of cores present in computer’s processors is steadily...

To optimize steel halls for this thesis, an optimization tool is created. This tool creates a parametric model and optimizes this model to its costs. The connections in the tool are limited to beam-column connections. <br/>The optimization starts with the input variables of the model, the most important input variable is the type of the beam...

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...

de Ruiter, Luc (author)
Unconventional aircraft designs have the potential to lower the impact of aviation on emissions and climate as compared to conventional aircraft designs. However, the flight dynamics behaviour of such unconventional configurations must be carefully evaluated by studying Stability and Control (S&amp;C) characteristics to design safe aircraft and...

This thesis aims in the development of a parametric modelling method for the preliminary ship design based on Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE). The research work was conducted in cooperation with C-Job Naval Architects. Nowadays, parametric models can be seen as the core of the design practice since they facilitate the exploration of the...

Alglave, Arthur (author)
In the aerospace industry, demanding time constraints make it practically impossible to fully explore the design space of aircraft movable surfaces. The hinges, located at the interface of the movable surface, require a time-consuming analysis. This thesis presents a methodology enabling the near instantaneous selection of an optimal hinge. An...

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...

Harness 3D routing is one of the most challenging steps in the design of aircraft Electrical Wiring Interconnection System (EWIS). This is due not only to the intrinsic complexity of the EWIS, but also to the increasing number of applying design constraints and its dependency on any change in the design of the airframe and installed systems....

Brown, M.T.H. (author)
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...

Zaccai, D. (author)
In today’s highly competitive aviation industry, continuous efforts are being directed towards reducing design time and simplifying systems. One of the prime aspects of aircraft design is the development of high-lift systems, which are used to obtain satisfactory performance in low-speed flight. The associated design and integration of high-lift...

In the last 60 years many new technologies have entered the aerospace industry, but the overall aircraft design remained virtually unchanged. If we compare an aircraft built in the 1960's with the latest generation, they look strikingly similar. Only small evolutionary changes entered the commercial aircraft market. A lot of these changes are...

In the aerospace domain, manufacturers and operators constantly seek to improve their products and processes. Increasingly, knowledge-based applications are developed to support or automate knowledge-intensive engineering tasks, saving time and money. However, engineering knowledge changes over time, which has implications for the usability and...

One of the main challenges in Multi-disciplinary Design Optimisation (MDO) is the interoperability of heterogeneous simulation tools. Some researches have reported that, due to these interoperability issues, only around 20% of the product development time is spent on analyses and creative design tasks. Clearly, there is a lot to gain, when it...

Reijnders, A.W. (author)
Because the amount of knowledge in the engineering domain nowadays is huge, while being opaque, heterogeneous, distributed and informal at the same time, it is incredibly time-consuming for an engineer to find the knowledge (s)he is looking for and to reuse that knowledge. Furthermore, the amount of knowledge is growing exponentially, while the...
