Schipper, Jurrien (author)
Modelling of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is challenging due to the strong coupling between the aerodynamics of the turbine and the hydrodynamics of the floating structure, which makes the dynamic response of the whole system highly complex. A variety of numerical approaches can be used to predict this response.<br/><br/>The frequency...

The advent of distributed electric propulsion aircraft concepts requires novel physics-based analysis methods for the modeling of the complex aerodynamic interactions between the closely coupled rotor, wing, and flap. For this purpose, the analysis tool Open Rotor-Wing-Flap Interaction Solver (ORWFIS) is developed with existing and novel low...

Since 2019, the FAA and the EASA impose to all airline pilots to follow, as part of their training, a stall and recovery training. To mitigate the risks, this training takes place in ground-based simulators. To make it happen, models of the aircraft behaviour at high angle of attack need to be developed. Among the different modeling approaches...

This paper investigates the problems of modeling and control of the morphing aircraft. Henceforth, a nonlinear dynamic model of a wing-sweep morphing aircraft is first established in this work. This model is suitable for larger envelopes by elaborating the variation of aerodynamic coefficients, air density, mass distribution at different...

This chapter highlights the main aerodynamic phenomena and challenges of vertical-axis wind turbines. First, an introduction is provided on the VAWT history and (dis-)advantages. The basics of VAWT aerodynamics and the various rotor simplifications/representations are presented. Further, the state-of-the art aerodynamic modeling techniques,...

Satellite drag modeling remains the largest source of uncertainty affecting space operations in low Earth orbit. The uncertainty stems from inaccurate models for mass density and drag coefficient. Drag coefficient modeling also impacts scientific knowledge on the physics and dynamics of the upper atmosphere through the estimation of high...

The commercialization of the space industry has led to a reduction in size and weight of satellites and launching vehicles, which have effectively reduced the cost of space services. The costs of launching payloads to space can be significantly reduced when the launching vehicles are reusable. The two-stage-to-orbit system with a winged,...

Doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) based wind turbines are most employed for onshore applications because of their cost-effectiveness. The drivetrain improvement is barely studied due to the maturity of the DFIG based systems. This paper investigates two methods for improving the annual energy production (AEP) of the DFIG based wind...

Quad-plane is a popular type of electric vertical and takeoff/landing (eVTOL) vehicle that hybridizes a quadrotor and a fixed-wing airplane. However, the mechanical simplicity of a quad-plane also makes it vulnerable to rotor failures. When a complete rotor fails, it becomes physically impossible to stop the quad-plane from fast yaw spinning,...

The vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) concept in its current, fixed-pitch iteration is hindered by lower aerodynamic efficiency compared to existing horizontal axis wind turbines. Implementing a form of circulation control on the VAWT by actively pitching the blades throughout the turbine’s rotation could potentially enhance power capture...

Aeroelastic stability must be maintained for the entire flight duration. Of the vast phenomena that fall under the field of aeroelasticity, flutter is the most studied and influential in terms of driving aircraft design. As such, it is the main topic of analysis of this Master Thesis. For flutter analysis, it is of critical importance to...

Despite significant interest in tailless flapping-wing micro aerial vehicle designs, tailed configurations are often favoured, as they offer many benefits, such as static stability and a simpler control strategy, separating wing and tail control. However, the tail aerodynamics are highly complex due to the interaction between the unsteady...

High performance control allocation methods for the Innovative Control Effectors (ICE) aircraft require accurate onboard aerodynamic models, with preferably first order continuity. Simplotope B-Splines, an extension on Simplex B-Splines, have a high approximation power by using local basis functions. However, enforcing global continuity produces...

The demand for always smaller, more manoeuvrable and versatile unmanned aerial vehicles cannot be met with conventional manned flight approaches. This has led engineers to seek inspiration in nature, giving rise to the bio-inspired flapping-wing micro aerial vehicle (FWMAV). FWMAVs achieve a remarkable flight performance at small scales, however...

Huisman, Florian (author)
A new aviation legislation makes it mandatory for air-carrier pilots to go through stall recovery training on simulators. As a result, new aerodynamic modeling techniques are required to model complex non-linear behavior of the aircraft flight envelope. In 2005, the Multivariate Simplex B-Splines method was developed. MSBS are a true general...

Inspired by insect flights, flapping wing micro air vehicles (FWMAVs) keep attracting attention from the scientific community. One of the design objectives is to reproduce the high power efficiency of insect flight. However, there is no clear answer yet to the question of how to design flapping wings and their kinematics for power-efficient...

As a result of new aviation legislation, from 2019 on all air-carrier pilots are obliged to go through flight simulator-based stall recovery training. For this reason the Control and Simulation division at Delft University of Technology has set up a task force to develop a new methodology for high-fidelity aircraft stall behavior modeling and...

Consensus exists that many loss-of-control (LOC) in flight accidents caused by severe aircraft damage or system failure could be prevented if flight performance could be recovered using the valid and remaining control authorities. However, the safe maneuverability of a post-failure aircraft will inevitably be reduced due to the malfunction. Non...

Avoiding high computational loads is essential to online aerodynamic model identi- fication algorithms, which are at the heart of any model-based adaptive flight control system. Multivariate simplex B-spline (MVSB) methods are excellent function approximation tools for modeling the nonlinear aerodynamics of high performance aircraft. However,...
