The aviation industry has grown at a steady rate of 5% per year over the past decades and is projected to continue this growth over the coming years. In sharp contrast stands the increasing concern with the reduction of the environmental impact of flying in the short term. To this end, a fuselage boundary layer ingesting propulsor powered using...

van Arnhem, N. (author)
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...

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...

The aviation sector accounted for 3.4 to 4.0% of the total anthropogenic radiative forcing in 2015. The sectors’growth is several percentage points larger than the annual fuel efficiency gain, resulting in an increasing climatechange impact. The world formulated goals for 2050 to limit anthropogenic climate change, the aviation sectorrequires a...

Zero-carbon-dioxide-emitting hydrogen-powered aircraft have, in recent decades, come back on the stage as promising protagonists in the fight against global warming. Nevertheless, most recent studies agree that hydrogen aircraft would underperform their kerosene counterparts in terms of operative empty mass and specific energy consumption. The...

The demand for air travel is increasing as more people gain access to commercial aviation. As the current generation of aircraft makes use of fossil fuel combustion, this growth results in an increase in the global emissions. This is at odds with the worldwide efforts of reducing the adverse effects of climate change. Therefore, advanced...

van der Leer, Quinty (author)
The current focus in the aviation industry for more sustainable designs, could mean the revive of propeller propulsion, due to their relative high propulsion efficiency compared to jets. In addition, the application of wingtip-mounted propellers installed in tractor configuration can be used as tip-vortex attenuating devices, reducing the wing...

Due to strong demand for air travel before the COVID-19 pandemic, major airports were constrained in capacity and this issue was expected to worsen in the coming decades. Novel aircraft (concepts) could help to alleviate these capacity constraints. However, the market competitiveness and impact of novel aircraft is often challenging to assess,...

In air traffic management research, aircraft performance models are often used to generate and analyze aircraft trajectories. Although a crucial part of the aircraft performance model, the aerodynamic property of aircraft is rarely available for public research purposes, as it is protected by aircraft manufacturers for commercial reasons. In...

Air traffic simulations serve as common practice to evaluate different concepts and methods for air transportation studies. The aircraft performance model is a key element that supports these simulation-based studies. It is also an important component for simulation-independent studies, such as air traffic optimization and prediction studies....

A large number of stakeholders exist in the modern air traffic management ecosystem. Air transportation studies benefit from collaboration and the sharing of knowledge and findings between these different players. However, not all parties have equal access to information. Due to the lack of open-source tools and models, it is not always possible...

The Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data has become one of the most popular sources of data for trajectory-based ATM studies. It is can be received in most of the world without restrictions. Extended coverage can be achieved with a network of low-cost receivers and satellites. However, the fact that ADS-B is designed to...

The aerodynamic properties of an aircraft determine a crucial part of the aircraft performance model. Deriving accurate aerodynamic coefficients requires detailed knowledge of the aircraft’s design. These designs and parameters are well protected by aircraft manufacturers. They rarely can be used in public research. Very detailed aerodynamic...

During today’s aircraft descents, Air Traf?c Control (ATC) commands aircraft to descend to specific altitudes and directions to maintain separation and spacing from other aircraft. When the aircraft is instructed to maintain an intermediate descent altitude, it requires engine thrust to maintain speed, leading to increased fuel burn and noise...

The STALINS method for measuring take-off and landing trajectories is briefly described and results of flight tests made in 1978-80 are discussed. The method now meets the requirements to which it was designed, and a few improvements in the hardware and software are being finalized. The method is expected to be ready for operational use in the...
