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...

Spaceplanes represent a new promising concept for space flight. A spaceplane is a reusable, safe, efficient and economical space transportation system that can generate lift during its atmospheric flight, analogously to an aircraft, and it is able to travel in space as a spacecraft. What makes spaceplanes so attractive is the possibility of...

Interplanetary missions use gravitational slingshots around planetary bodies to adjust their heliocentric velocity or inclination for quite some time. The momentum exchange that can be achieved during a so-called gravity assist is limited by the mass of the planetary body. To overcome this limitation, an aerogravity assist was proposed, a...

In a previous study, the optimal re-entry trajectory of Hyperion-2 has been derived. The mission of the vehicle is to measure hypersonic boundary-layer transition, a phenomena in which the laminar boundary layer turns into a turbulent boundary layer. This is an important feature in hypersonic flow to investigate, as it introduces peak heating...

The design and development of a small unmanned aerial vehicle is proposed in order to provide more accurate hypersonic flight data. The outcomes could improve the current shortage of hypersonic flight data and serve to understand and predict how test conditions may be different from actual test flight. Furthermore, the response of the structure...
