The implementation of morphing wings technology has the potential to significantly improve aircraft performance. However, due to the complex interplay between aerodynamics and structural integrity, it requires an aerostructural analysis. 3DExperience by Dassault Systèmes is a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) - based software with integrated...

Current design methods for oblique manifolds were first presented in the paper of London et al. in 1968. This method presents a single equation to shape the dividing manifold of several manifold configurations. However, current literature shows a potential to improve the current design method by implementing advanced techniques. This paper aims...

Decarbonization is an important step to achieve the goals set by the Paris Agreement. Greenhouse gas emissions should be reduced to zero, and therefore, the reliability of fossil fuels should be reduced. This causes a shift of interest towards more renewable solutions. However, the intermittent nature<br/>of renewable energy sources such as...

Aerodynamics has been an important aspect of the automotive industry for decades with the wheels being a notable contributing factor. They are responsible for up to 25% of the drag in the case of a general passenger car and up to 30%-50% for an open-wheeled race car.<br/> In this research, the aerodynamic characteristics of an isolated rotating...

The offshore wind industry is increasingly constructing wind turbines farther from the coast, in deeper water, and under more extreme conditions. This requires larger (monopile) foundations and necessitates new installation methods. An important factor affecting workability is the dynamic behavior of the monopile during installation. <br/>The...

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations for residential areas are becoming increasingly important as the urban population keeps growing and extreme weather conditions due to climate change are becoming more prevalent. Since CFD simulations simulate and visualise fluid flows, users can analyse and predict air flows in urban environments,...

Due to lack of information and long geometry generation times, tree geometries are usually oversimplified or even ignored in Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations that predict wind and pollutant dispersion in urban areas. Nevertheless, trees are known to impact local wind patterns and air quality levels. Thus, in this paper we explore...

The presence of mud layers on the bottom of ports and waterways can have negative effects on the hydrodynamic behaviour of marine vessels. This numerical study investigates the effect of muddy seabeds on the full-scale resistance of an oil tanker sailing straight ahead. The objective is to determine the influence of factors such as the...

The agglomeration of cohesive particles can deteriorate fluidization quality and cause the defluidization of a bed, which is a common issue found in the applications of fluidized beds. This study aims to gain a better understanding of particle cohesion on agglomeration/fluidization behaviors and the effective methods for achieving a better...

This thesis investigates the aerodynamics of a propeller-wing-flap system, spurred by the growing interest in propeller-driven aircraft and the potential introduction of distributed electric propulsion. The research focuses on the complex flowfield involving the interaction of the propeller slipstream with the main wing and flap at high-lift...

Beyne, Egon (author)
The aerodynamic performance of a regional, propeller-powered strut-braced wing is investigated. The main wing planform and operating conditions are based on an ATR72, to which a strut and jury strut are added. The research focuses on the different drag components in cruise. The first research objective is to quantify the effect the different...

Small satellites require efficient propulsion systems for attitude and orbit control. This thesis focuses on the development and characterization of two distinct types of micro-resistojet thrusters, namely Vaporizing Liquid Micro-resistojet (VLM) and Low Pressure Micro-resistojet (LPM). Both concepts are developed at TU Delft and are designed to...

As market growth projections for Urban Air Mobility vehicles (UAMs) skyrocket, their presence in urban environments is likely to become increasingly prevalent, as will their noise. This creates a disturbance to both humans and wildlife, previously unaffected by aircraft noise. Further reinforcing the concern is the new multi-rotor designs, which...

The mimetic spectral element method (MSEM) is a structure-preserving discretization scheme based on the Galerkin Method, which strongly constrains the topology relations by discretizing and reconstructing variables in specific function spaces in order to preserve certain critical structures of the PDE in the numerical solution. In studying the...

The vast majority of energy conversion systems currently makes use of fossil fuels, whose combustion generates harmful greenhouse gases. Transitioning to renewable energy sources is thus paramount to limiting the environmental impact of human activities on the climate. In this regard, the harvesting of wasted thermal energy constitutes a...
