Flying characteristics of a multi-engined light general aviation (GA) aircraft during and after an engine failure is often a major safety consideration when both designing and operating the aircraft. In the meantime, the propellers, being large rotating masses, can exert considerable gyroscopic effect on the aircraft during flight, itself...

Kuijpers, Jan-Willem (author)
With standard aircraft configurations reaching their limits in efficiency, new aircraft configurations are being theorized and analyzed. One type of analysis is remotely piloted scaled flight tests. One of the aspects that can be analyzed through remotely piloted scaled flight tests is the dynamic behavior of the aircraft. This thesis shows a...

Directional flight handling and stability characteristics of the Delft University Unconventional Configuration (DUUC) were assessed by means of an inhouse designed and built mobile wind tunnel setup. The DUUC aircraft features an integrated ducted fan propulsive empennage (DFPE) that replaces the entire horizontal and vertical tails for...

Juffermans, Stefan (author)
For decades the physical appearance of aircraft remained more or less unchanged. The increase in efficiency which still can be made by improving this design, is limited. More researchers have started to investigate new design options that represent a departure from established concepts. The main drivers behind these endeavors are the tightening...

An experimental investigation was done regarding the propulsion system and airframe integration issues associated with the novel Flying V configuration. The experimental investigations involved a series of wind tunnel tests with a 4.6% scale half model, conducted in the TU Delft OJF low speed wind tunnel. Balance measurements allowed significant...

The Flying V is a concept proposed and patented by Benad and Airbus Operations GmbH, which is a flying wing aircraft in the shape of the letter V. Multiple researches already showed promising results, with a 25% increased lift over drag ratio compared to conventional aircraft like the Airbus A350-900. Before research of sub-scale flight testing...

The application of Active Control Technology concepts and in particular the Relaxed Static Stability principle in certain categories of future transport aircraft will lead to the introduction of primary flight control systems incorporating full-time stability augmentation. For this category of transport aircraft adequate handling quality...

A description is given of flight tests related to the effect of various levels of (artificial) positive stick force stability on the longitudinal controllability in the landing approach of an attitudestabilized aircraft. Approach performance and pilot commentary of 60 ILS/VASIS approaches flown with a twin-engined jet transport have been...

Hofman, C.F.G.M. (author)
Aircraft noise perceived on the ground can be reduced by decelerating the aircraft during the landing approach. As an additional benefit the lower thrust settings existing during a part of the approach and the shorter approach time result in a reduced fuel consumption as compared to a conventional approach. This report deals with an experiment...
