Proesmans, Pieter-Jan (author)
The design and integration of the propulsion system is known to be an interesting, multi-disciplinary challenge in aircraft design projects. Especially for new aircraft configurations, it is important to gain a lot of knowledge in the preliminary design stages. An example of such an unconventional configuration is the box-wing aircraft examined...

Fundamental phase in the preliminary design of an aircraft is the load case choice. Historically, the manoeuvres have been considered as the principal critical loads, while in conceptual design the gusts have been not investigated since, being an intrinsically dynamic phenomenon, they are expensive to analyze. Nevertheless, they are a critical...

In the highly uncertain environment of conceptual aircraft design and technology assessment and selection, making good decisions is of utmost importance. Aiming to contribute to improving decision quality, the problem was researched from both a technical as well as a socio-psychological perspective. In the technical perspective, the uncertainty...

With Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO) a fully automated aircraft design analysis is set up and optimization algorithms are used to obtain better designs by balancing the synergy between components. In the EU project AGILE, a new methodology and framework were developed to make the MDAO approach more accessible to...

The Flying-V is a novel flying wing concept where the main lifting surface has been fully integrated with the passenger cabin. Previous studies have focused on the aerodynamic and structural design of the airframe; but, prior to determining which engine-airframe integration alternative is most beneficial (e.g. boundary layer ingestion, distributed...

The aviation sector and its associated activities contribute to climate change, damage to the environment, community noise, and local air pollution. As a consequence it affects the health and quality of life of citizens that live close to airports, and through climate change every person on earth. To reduce the impact of air travel and thereby...

To allow the incorporation of engine design in the Aircraft Initiator conceptual design tool, a modular engine design and performance estimation tool has been created, which is intended to allow the study of the effects of changes to engine architecture on the complete aircraft design. It generates estimates for engine thrust, specific fuel...

Improving the performance of large transport aircraft requires high aspect ratio and lightweight wings, making aeroelasticity an important factor in wing structural design. Active control of aeroelastic loads can be used to improve the aeroelastic behavior of the wing.<br/><br/>Two active load control techniques are considered: Maneuver Load...

Aircraft design methodologies have been significantly developing from the past few years with the advancements in knowledge based techniques. These methods enable the storage of design knowledge and rules, and reuse them to create different types of designs, thus preventing the designer to perform repetitive tasks. Tasks such as parametric...

The aircraft industry has seen many evolutionary changes in the past decades. Since the Boeing 707 however, the general shape and configuration of transport aircraft have remained similar and so has the aircraft design process. Since the aviation community is about to face a revolutionary breakthrough featuring new aircraft concepts like blended...

In the past decades a clear transition can be seen from fully human-based production techniques towards more automated systems. With the Product Development Process (PDP) being a potential source of competitive advantage the same trend of adopting more automation can be seen in the PDP. The application of automation can lead to large reductions...

Considering the fact that all large commercial aircraft have not changed significantly in their tube–and–wing shape during the past few decades, one would suggest that a completely different configuration is necessary to facilitate a new leap forward in aircraft performance. The blended–wing–body is potentially such an alternative configuration....
