Delamination is an important damage mechanism in composite materials. A correct prediction of its behaviour is of great importance in the design of aerospace composite structures. Nevertheless, when using simple numerical models which do not account for the delamination migrating to other interfaces or other intralaminar damage mechanisms, the...

The research phase starts with an extensive literature study. To this end, a research question was drawn up, which reads as follows: What possibilities does Additive Manufacturing (AM) offer in airworthy aircraft part production and in what way can suitable parts be selected and redesigned? The most interesting findings from this literature...

Additive manufacturing allows material structuring, supporting the fabrication of multiple-level structures or metamaterials. Through the lens of classical stress reduction, nature’s cellular solid structures feature stress-homogenizing nodal topologies. Avian long bones are an example. Research into the mechanics of open cell cellular solids...

Recent studies and accident investigations show the detrimental effects of startle and (automation) surprise on flight crew performance in terms of cognitive reasoning and sensemaking. Previous research conducted at Delft University of Technology shows a positive effect of training variability on crew performance in surprising tasks related to...

To launch a rocket to the edge of space using a pressure fed rocket system with liquid oxygen as propellant, you need to know exactly how much pressurant gas (helium) you need to take along. In this thesis a practical investigation on cryogenic tank pressurization is conducted together with DARE. The measurement results are used to validate...

Efficient design of woven composite structures is limited by a knowledge gap in predictive modeling of their behaviour. Fatigue modeling in particular is difficult and limited by a lack of experimental data. For compression-compression (C-C) or tension-compression (T-C) fatigue, experimental results in literature are uncommon. In this master...

The Flying V, a concept aircraft configuration, has been proposed by Airbus and TU Berlin. The initial indications of potential improvements in performance over conventional aircraft gave rise to a continuation of the research. For this, the mass characteristics of the configuration must be explored. <br/><br/>A primary structure concept is...

Within the aeronautical industry product quality is an inevitable key factor to guarantee safety and customer satisfaction. In the last years the increasing complexity of modern aircraft, however, has led to an immense demand for collaboration of different manufacturers in order to stay competitive. Therefore, there is an increasing interest in...

Following the EU-28 targets, in 2050 a reduction in total energy consumption of 70% compared to the 2008 consumption is required driven by weight reduction in the road transportation industry. Because of the high specific strength and stiffness of composite materials, introduction of advanced composites in the vehicle design is observed. However...

An opportunity was identified to improve the traditional landing gear design process. Especially in the conceptual design phase, lots of man-hours are consumed by making the same calculations over and over again, for different concepts. Often, an existing gear is therefore used as initial starting point, to simplify the design process. This...

The continuous development of power electronic converters has opened new opportunities for the More-Electrical Aircraft (MEA) concept, where the conventional power sources (pneumatic, hydraulic, mechanical) are replaced with electric sources to support secondary loads in the aircrafts. It is expected that more efficient, lighter and lower...

The thesis presents a feasibility study of a proposed combustion methodology by means of two-dimensional Computational Fluid Dynamics on the application of Flameless Combustion to an aircraft engine with the objective to achieve ultra-low pollutant emissions. The geometrical design started from scratch while taking the philosophy of the proposed...

Additive Manufacturing (AM) can create a lot of unique opportunities within the aerospace industry. But AM is also a relative new production process, that needs knowledge, a new way of thinking and experience to be successful. To help the company Zodiac Aerospace (ZA) start a new journey into AM, this project was conducted. Phase I - Analysis AM...

Aviation has a significant impact on the global atmosphere. Next to particle and gas emissions, the increase of cloud cover might increasingly contribute to aviation induced climate change. Water contained in the exhaust of jet engines locally raises the relative humidity levels sufficiently for contrail formation to occur. These contrails can...

In today’s market environment benefits are rising when traveling lightweight by plane. More and more people are traveling with cabin luggage only. (1) It is quicker because there is no need to check-in or drop your luggage. (2) It is safer because you have your luggage with you all the time and (3) it is cheaper because you avoid check-in...

The deployment of passive, spherical lander pods provides a low-cost, low-risk technique for measuring the (sub-)surface of asteroids and comets. In this masters thesis, we numerically investigate the feasibility of such pods through the development of simulation software. This software models the complex gravity field of asteroids, as well as...

The aerospace industry progressively develops alternatives for chromic acid anodizing, since Cr6+ is known to be toxic and carcinogenic. In this work, potentiodynamic anodizing of aluminum alloys AA1050 and AA2024-T3 clad was performed in phosphoric sulfuric acid (PSA) and sulfuric acid (SAA). I has been shown that anodic film morphologies can...
