In 2022 the aviation sector accounted for 1.9%of global greenhouse gas emissions, 2.5% of global CO2 emissions, and 3.5% of effective radiative forcing. To reach the long-term target of net zero emissions, revolutionary aircraft designs, featuring electrified or hydrogen powered propulsion systems, are needed. At the same time, the...

The aircraft Environmental Control System (ECS) is the primary consumer of non-propulsive power at cruise conditions, hence, its performance optimization is crucial for the reduction of specific fuel consumption. A novel integrated system design optimization method is presented: thermodynamic cycle, component sizing and working fluid are...

This paper proposes a new active learning method named as optimum-pursuing method (OPM) from the viewpoint of optimization theory, which aims to provide an effective tool for solving constrained optimization and reliability-based design optimization (RBDO) problems with low computation cost. It uses the cheap Kriging metamodel to replace the...

Boundary Layer Ingestion (BLI) is a promising propulsion concept for aviation, aiming to reduce fuel burn. This configuration involves using the propulsor to ingest the boundary layer from the fuselage or wing. Typically, aircraft with BLI propulsors also integrate a hybrid-electric powertrain. This integrated setup has shown potential in fuel...

While nonlinear phenomena in mechanical systems are well understood, strategies for designing structures that exhibit certain nonlinear responses have received little attention. Design optimization is a systematic and iterative process aimed at improving the performance and efficiency of a system. It involves exploring various design choices and...

Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) have been widely utilised in aircraft structures for their specific strength, durability and damage tolerance. Most aircraft structures, due to their size, require joining, and FMLs allow for a special type of joint called the splice, a unique but a lesser known joint.<br/><br/>The bulk of research into the splice...

Increasing global parcel shipping volumes and just-in-time delivery force distribution centers to handle increasingly larger volumes of greatly varying parcel types. Automated material handling systems are essential to achieve these challenging requirements. A push divert sorter is one of these systems. This system uses a series of sliding...

The use of CFD-based optimizations is becoming a standard for turbomachinery design. Although the use of such optimizations can lead to great improvements of the machine performances, there are still several shortcomings in the common design procedure of turbomachines. In fact, this entails the optimization of the component shape, and only a...

During the aircraft conceptual design phase, many different design options need to be explored and compared in a short time frame. To speed up this process, efforts have been made in the past decades to digitalize parts of the design process, with a focus on the automation of the repetitive and non-creative tasks inherent to the iterative design...

The design of electrostatic electron lenses involves the choice of many geometrical parameters for the lens electrodes as well as the choice of voltages applied to the electrodes. The purpose of the design is to focus the electrons at a specific point and to minimize the aberrations of the lens. In a previous study, genetic algorithm...

Transition zones such as level crossing and bridge approaches are critical links in railway networks due to higher degradation rates and maintenance needs. In this context, parametric optimization has been applied to improve the design in transition zones; however, it requires a more computationally efficient tool to support repetitive...

The increasing popularity of offshore wind as a result of the demand for renewable energy, forces the industry to consider the development of wind farms in sub-arctic areas. One of these areas is the Baltic Sea, where the potential for wind energy is very large, but which is also prone to the occurrence of ice. For the design of offshore...

The paper proposes a generative design workflow for three major hospital layout planning steps to satisfy multiplex configurational requirements. The initial step is stacking through clustering functional spaces into floor plans, for which a spectral method is presented. Subsequently, a novel simultaneous process of zoning and routing is...

Within traditional design processes, decisions are often made based on individualistic values and late-stage assessments conducted on a predefined set of design alternatives potentially leading to suboptimal design decisions and conflicts. The issues are further amplified by the growing complexity of construction project management where an...

Compliant mechanisms have found their way in more and more applications in recent years, particularly in the aerospace and microsystems sectors. The benefits of compliant mechanisms stretch far, and can be exploited for large scale applications as well. Little research has been performed on the use of compliant mechanisms in large scale...

A tiltrotor has the features of both a fixed-wing aircraft and a helicopter, thereby blending the vertical flight capabilities of helicopters with the speed, altitude, and range of fixed-wing aircraft. However, as an important aspect of piloted aircraft, the handling qualities of tiltrotor aircraft have not been studied extensively. This thesis...
