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...

Flying wings are known for their limited lateral-directional stability and handling qualities. This study aims at assessing the lateral-directional handling qualities of a conceptual flying wing aircraft currently in development at TU Delft, the Flying-V. It focuses on two aspects: First assess the lateral-directional handling qualities of the...

Increased susceptibility to motion sickness, due to the transition away from driving, will be one of the major hurdles in the widespread use of automated vehicles. Sustained exposure to motion sickness can lead to the disuse of automated vehicle technology among users. Thus, there is a need to mitigate motion sickness. To do so, a robust model...

Phenomena like sea level rise, global warming and erosion together contribute to increasing flood risk in vulnerable coastal areas. As this flood risk increases, initiatives to mitigate the effects of climate change in the coastal zone are also increasingly sought. During recent years, the view that these measures should be circular has gained...

Incremental Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion has shown increases in performance and robustness to model mismatches and uncertainties in hydraulic control as compared to other model-based controllers. This work will expand on hydraulic Incremental Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion force control and discuss three of its challenges and accompanying solutions....

Haptic feedback on the side stick has been used in previous research on assisting pilots in recognising flight envelope limits. Pilots indicated, however, that it was not always clear what the haptics were trying to tell them, leading to a lower system acceptance. This paper describes the design and evaluation of a visual display in...

Industry is proposing touch-based solutions to modernize the flight management system, a necessary step to cope with increasing demands on lateral navigation as airspace congestion grows. However, research evaluating touchscreen effectiveness for navigation tasks on the flight deck is lacking. The SIMONA Research Simulator was used, with 12...

Landing is one of the most difficult tasks of flying an aircraft and a majority of the incidents and accidents is related to the final approach and landing phase of flight. Comprehensive training programs are required to prepare (novice) pilots for this last phase of flight, and facilitate the development of robust manual flying skills. Various...

Bij het modelleren van rivieren leveren de bochten over het algemeen een uitdaging. Deze vormen dan ook uitstekend testmateriaal voor een model. Al jaren maakt Rijkswaterstaat in verschillende projecten gebruik van het modelleringspakket SIMONA. Dit is een eindige-volume modelpakket gebaseerd op de shallow-water-equations, bedoeld voor het...

Proceeding a short overview of the Navigation simulation (NAVSIM) within the SIMONA research simulator, a detailed description of NAVSIM will be given. For NAVSIM, a modular schematic has been developed. The models of the navigation system must comply to this schematic. In this report, the following radionavigation systems will be discussed: VOR...
