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...

The advent of distributed electric propulsion aircraft concepts requires novel physics-based analysis methods for the modeling of the complex aerodynamic interactions between the closely coupled rotor, wing, and flap. For this purpose, the analysis tool Open Rotor-Wing-Flap Interaction Solver (ORWFIS) is developed with existing and novel low...

A method is presented for concurrent aerostructural optimization of wing planform, airfoil and high lift devices. The optimization is defined to minimize the aircraft fuel consumption for cruise, while satisfying the field performance requirements. A coupled adjoint aerostructural tool, that couples a quasi-three-dimensional aerodynamic...

As the complexity of high-tech systems continuously increases, engineers look for possibilities to reduce time and cost of the development of these systems. Architecture-based design enables a front-loaded design process with knowledge reuse. By enabling the automatic synthesis of simulation models, different configurations of an architecture...

Current wing design processes are strongly governed by cruise design requirements. This approach to wing design leaves little room for high-lift device design optimization where trade-offs may be required between cruise wing and high-lift wing design. Moreover, the optimization of high-lift devices typically focuses on optimizing flap/slat...

A new methodology has been developed that integrates the preliminary wing design with trailing edge high-lift systems and accounts for three-dimensional flap kinematics. The high-lift system in the developed application includes the kinematic synthesis of four common mechanisms (dropped-hinge, four-bar, link-track and hooked-track) and a...

Optimization of a single slotted flap with dropped hinge is performed with the objective of increasing the payload of a propeller driven 4-seater general aviation aircraft. Within the optimization loop, two-dimensional aerodynamic characteristics are evaluated using the MSES code, while three-dimensional aerodynamic characteristics and weight...

The application of morphing structures in conventional aircraft is a method to improve aircraft performance by both reducing the total fuel consumption for a given mission profile, or by allowing one type of aircraft to perform a wider range of missions. The current generation of aircraft does not widely use morphing technology to optimize...

The design of complex aircraft elements such as high-lift devices has large influence on the performance of modern transport airplanes. At the cost of increased wing weight, these devices are included in the wing to ensure safe takeoff and landing. In order to meet sustainability challenges on future air transportation systems, high-lift devices...
