Towards the Industrialization of MDAO: Evolving 1st Generation MDAO to an Industry Ready Level of Maturityde Vries, Daniël (author)Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO) promises major advances in aircraft design. However, judging from todays aircraft, MDAO is clearly not fully embraced by the industry yet. This is due to technical difficulties (coupling incompatible tools) and non-technical barriers (intellectual property).master thesis 2017

Numerical and experimental investigations of bend-twist coupling effects for a small wind turbine bladeDicholkar, Antariksh (author)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...master thesis 2017
