As turbofan technology advances, periodic engine inspection and maintenance still remain a significant part of aircraft operational costs. Operators are thus looking to engine condition-based maintenance (ECBM), leveraging sensor data and numerical engine models for continuous diagnostics. KLM Engine Services developed a surrogate model based on...

The demand for wind energy has led to the need for larger offshore wind turbines, which require larger monopiles for support. Vibratory pile driving is a common technique for installing these monopiles, but current engineering models are designed for smaller diameter monopiles and may not be applicable to larger ones. Additionally, the vibratory...

In this article, I focus on the role of computer simulations as exploratory strategies. I begin by establishing the non-theory-driven nature of simulations. This refers to their ability to characterize phenomena without relying on a predefined conceptual framework that is provided by an implemented mathematical model. Drawing on Steinle’s notion...

Over the years, aero engines have evolved into the efficient turbofans present on commercial airliners today. Although these engines are very reliable, they still experience degradations in performance and reductions in component health. The degradation affects the operation of the engine, which can be measured using the pressure, temperature,...

Research into Aerodynamic Stall Model Identification (ASMI) is an ongoing endeavor to create a model that achieves the highest fidelity, that aids in upset recovery training of pilots in Flight Simulator Training Devices (FSTD). Aircraft come in various configurations, one aircraft stall model cannot sufficiently provide a full understanding...

<br/><br/>This article proposes an efficient correction model that enables the extension of the blade element momentum method (BEM) for swept blades. Standard BEM algorithms, assuming a straight blade in the rotor plane, cannot account for the changes in the induction system introduced by blade sweep. The proposed extension corrects the axial...

The shipping industry, which remains the backbone of international merchandise trade, is striving to reduce its operational cost and more importantly its environment impact. New ships need meet the EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) requirements of IMO (International Maritime Organization). However, the current EEDI is not able to accurately...

Two new engineering models are presented for the aerodynamic induction of a wind turbine under dynamic thrust. The models are developed using the differential form of Duhamel integrals of indicial responses of actuator disc type vortex models. The time constants of the indicial functions are obtained by the indicial responses of a linear and...

With the global increase in passenger traffic and growing popularity of long-haul routes over the Asia Pacific region and Atlantic Ocean, the possibility for hypersonic transport could become an attractive option to reduce flight time over long distance from 16-20 hours down to around 4-5 hours. In this thesis, a Multi-Disciplinary Optimisation...

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...

Blade Element Momentum (BEM) is the most important aerodynamic analysis method for wind turbines. BEM is derived assuming stationary conditions, which limits its ability to model the unsteady aerodynamic effects. This becomes increasingly relevant for the flexible blades of current large-scale turbines, and the employment of passive and active...

Rotating wickless and stationary capillary cylindrical heat pipes are widely used heat transfer devices. Transient behavior of such heat pipes has been investigated numerically with computational fluid dynamics and lumped parameter models. In this paper, the advantages of both methods are combined into a novel engineering model that is low in...

After-treatment technologies are adopted in automobiles and ships to meet strict emission regulations, which increase exhaust back pressure. Furthermore, underwater exhaust systems are employed on board ships to save space, and reduce noise and pollution on working decks. However, water at exhaust outlet creates a flow resistance for the...

Civil air transportation has undergone significant expansion over the past decades and is continuing to grow. Nevertheless, the tendency of energy depletion and the severe environmental problems yield challenges in its further development. To mitigate the climate impact of civil aviation, the Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe ...

The subject of aerodynamics is of major importance for the successful deployment of wind energy. As a matter of fact there are two aerodynamic areas in the wind energy technology: Rotor aerodynamics and wind farm aerodynamics. The first subject considers the flow around the rotor and the second subject considers the (wake) flow within a wind...
