Although several previous studies have reported a potential drag-reducing effect of dimpled surfaces in turbulent boundary layers, there is a lack of replicability across experiments performed by different research groups. To contribute to the dialogue, we scrutinize one of the most studied dimple geometries reported in the literature, which...

The aerodynamic behaviour of a pitched baseball depends on the combination of the translational velocity, the rotational velocity in combination with the rotation axis and the seam positions. For small spin parameters the effect of seam positions dominates the Magnus effect. This study focusses on a visual understanding of the seam position by...

The main objective of this master’s thesis is to experimentally investigate the effects of dynamic inflow conditions on the wake of an actuator disc. Dynamic inflow is the unsteady wake in momentum theory. Dynamic inflow can experimentally be generated by a gust generator. During the experiments, in which Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) was...

Nowadays, large wind turbines are installed and operated close to densely populated areas due to the growing need for renewable energy. Noise constraints are hampering this development. The most relevant wind turbine noise source is the so-called Turbulent Boundary Layer Trailing-Edge (TBL–TE) noise. Many passive TBL–TE noise reduction...

<br/>Aerodynamic noise produced by aircraft, wind turbines, and other objects subjected to airflow contribute to environmental noise pollution, which adversely affects human and animal health. Consequently, governments impose restrictions on aircraft and wind turbine noise levels. These restrictions can have an economic impact by limiting...

Trailing-edge noise can be the dominant noise source of diverse industrial applications, including wind turbines. Noise regulations may limit the power production and installation of new wind farms. There is a need to reduce it. In order to achieve so, we first need to predict it, and to do so we need experimental data to support and validate...

Wind loads acting on STS cranes are an important design parameter to be taken into account when designing STS cranes. Current calculation standards such as the EN13001-2 overestimate wind forces. The goal of this research is to propose an improvement on current calculation standards. Wind tunnel tests were performed to assess the results of...

This thesis is performed with the aim to investigate whether split flaps can be a feasible solution for increasing the Flying V directional control power. In order to do so, a set of wind tunnel experiments have been concluded with a 4.6% half wing model in the Open-Jet-Facility at the Delft University of Technology. Here, several split flap...

It is envisioned that the future generations of regional and short to medium-range aircraft employ a high level of propeller integration to achieve low-emission flight. The objectives of unconventional propeller installations include the enhancement of the airframe aerodynamic efficiency, increasing the propeller efficiency, improving cabin...

The technical advancements achieved during the last decade have permitted the implementation of low-fidelity numerical methods to analyze simplified aeroelastic problems. However, the available computational power is still incapable of dealing with more realistic events involving complex structural dynamics and flow regimes. For this reason,...

Mathijssen, Lucas (author)
Supersonic panel flutter is a self-excited vibration, where energy is transferred into thin flexible panels, such as skin panels in supersonic vehicles, from the (supersonic) flow around them, which can lead to their rapid fatigue failure. Relevant examples of this include the failure of skin panels in the X-15 vehicle, or violent oscillations...

With the increased focus on sustainability, aircraft are designed to reduce their emissions. One way to accomplish this is by increasing the wing aspect ratio, thereby increasing the aerodynamic efficiency, however this is not without consequences. Increased aspect ratio wings have a higher structural mass, are more susceptible to gust and...

Recent developments in the field of hybrid-electric propulsion (HEP) have opened the door to a wide range of novel aircraft configurations with improved energy efficiency. These electrically-driven powertrains enable “distributed propulsion” configurations, in which the aerodynamic interaction between the propulsive devices and the airframe is...

This paper proposes an incremental nonlinear control method for aeroelastic sys- tem gust load alleviation and active flutter suppression. These two control objectives can be achieved without modifying the control architecture or the control parameters. The proposed method has guaranteed stability in the Lyapunov sense and also has robustness...

This study describes a novel measurement approach for combined flow and structural measurements in wind tunnels using robotic volumetric particle tracking velocimetry (PTV). The measurement approach is based on the application of a particle tracking algorithm on images including flow or structure tracers, where the latter are implemented by...

This paper presents an experimental method to detect in-situ the location of transition on a multi-segmental trailing edge camber morphing wing during synchronous and asynchronous morphing. The wing consists of six independently morphing segments with two of the segments instrumented with eight embedded piezoelectric sensors distributed...

This paper presents the development and initial characterization of an active, para- metric wing section with aileron and spoiler control surfaces. This wing section is intended to replace the currently used passive wing section setup and facilitate research in active con- trol techniques of aeroelastic phenomena such as flutter, gust load...

Two piezoelectric series bimorph sensors were embedded below the skin of a NACA 0012 symmetrical airfoil to detect the local state of the boundary layer during wind tunnel testing. Small vanes piercing the airfoil skin were glued onto the bimorphs providing a mechanical coupling to the local mechanical force fluctuations imparted by the local...

The aeroelastic response of a highly flexible wing to periodic gust excitation is determined experimentally. The integrated optical measurement approach that is applied provides combined measurements of the structural response of the wing and the unsteady flow field around it. The aeroelastic loads acting on the wing are derived from these...
