Boundary Layer Ingestion (BLI) is a promising propulsion concept for aviation, aiming to reduce fuel burn. This configuration involves using the propulsor to ingest the boundary layer from the fuselage or wing. Typically, aircraft with BLI propulsors also integrate a hybrid-electric powertrain. This integrated setup has shown potential in fuel...

Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) have been widely utilised in aircraft structures for their specific strength, durability and damage tolerance. Most aircraft structures, due to their size, require joining, and FMLs allow for a special type of joint called the splice, a unique but a lesser known joint.<br/><br/>The bulk of research into the splice...

The use of CFD-based optimizations is becoming a standard for turbomachinery design. Although the use of such optimizations can lead to great improvements of the machine performances, there are still several shortcomings in the common design procedure of turbomachines. In fact, this entails the optimization of the component shape, and only a...

During the aircraft conceptual design phase, many different design options need to be explored and compared in a short time frame. To speed up this process, efforts have been made in the past decades to digitalize parts of the design process, with a focus on the automation of the repetitive and non-creative tasks inherent to the iterative design...

With an increasing complexity of systems, systematic design space exploration is required for fair analysis and comparison of architecture design options. However, there is still a need for a benchmark problem to support the development &amp; evaluation of optimization algorithms and system architecture design space modeling methods, and to...

The last 20 years has brought with it a surge in efforts toward the Red Planet as the next frontier is human space exploration draws closer. Many concepts have been proposed for a sustained human settlement on Mars, with NASA’s ISRU-to-the-wall campaign identifying the need for a shuttle vehicle between theMartian surface and a station in an...

There are two main challenges in the construction industry: carbon emissions and densification in cities. Timber high-rise might prove as a suitable solution to both these challenges. However, there is a lack of implementation of timber high-rise. This research argues that a lack of thorough analysis of timber design alternatives in the...

For decades the space domain has been used for military purposes. When enemy forces establish counter-space capabilities, this could become a weakness. Responsive Space is a concept that focuses on replenishing lost capabilities and/or granting additional capabilities from space assets quickly. The continuous miniaturization of technologies has...

The demand of small payload launch vehicles has been growing over the past years. Customers base their selection of launch vehicles on cost-effectiveness, flexibility, availability and reliability. A new launch vehicle, the Dawn Aerospace Mk-III, is proposed to be developed, while designed to take into account all these criteria.<br/><br/>For...

Recent years have seen a drastic increase in the number of small satellites launched per year, as these systems weighing less than 1000 kg have become less expensive alternatives to obtaining scientific data compared to satellites weighing multiple tons. A current drawback with these systems is their price to orbit, often reaching over $100k ...

With Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO) a fully automated aircraft design analysis is set up and optimization algorithms are used to obtain better designs by balancing the synergy between components. In the EU project AGILE, a new methodology and framework were developed to make the MDAO approach more accessible to...

Nowadays an increasing number of offshore wind farms (OWF) is getting built. Several disciplines are considered into this subject. The manual and sequential design approach used so far is not sufficient to guarantee optimized systems because interactions between the different components are disregarded. Therefore, engineering companies are...

Rodriguez Garcia, Alvaro (author)
One of the cutting-edge interests gaining relevance among design offices, notably in the sphere of architecture firms, is computational design. With its inception embedded in the 60s and later reformed through the CAD revolution that boomed in the 80s, the use of the computer as a design tool has evolved to such lengths that it became...

This paper presents a multi-disciplinary design optimization (MDO) framework for design of a general aviation aircraft wing considering the effects of tractor propellers on the wing aerodynamic characteristics. In pursuit of this objective, a wing–propeller full-interaction aerodynamic routine was developed and integrated with structural and...

Material bend-twist coupling has been widely studied in the research community as a passive control mechanism for a wind turbine. However, there is a lack of research in incorporating it in the rotor design process, with little research being conducted for its application to small wind turbines. The present study focuses on this issue by...

Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) frameworks, capable of performing overall aircraft design studies become too complex to be comprehended by a single team of experts. Therefore, there is an increasing need to develop distributed analysis frameworks in which both tools and experts are integrated in a single network. This poses great...
