Inflatable wings are of interest for applications where low weight, compact transport volume, and easy set-up are important. Examples are unmanned aerial vehicles with inflatable wings, paragliders and softkites for sport or airborne wind-energy applications. In this paper, a new method of designing and fabricating conformable inflatable wings...

In recent years an exciting new era of space exploration has begun with the advent of the beyond Earth orbit CubeSat (BEOC) missions. However, utilizing the CubeSat platform for such missions gives rise to a series of significant technological challenges. Fortunately, the field of inflatable space structures offers some tantalizing solutions to...

In the Meuse seven weirs are located in the Dutch reaches, controlling the water level to enable inland navigation through the river. The weirs are being scheduled for replacement, where weir Grave is the first one in 2028. They are reaching their end-of-life time. One of the main issues that became of more importance in the recent years is ship...

The purpose of the thesis was to design a deployable thermal shielding baffle for the Deployable Space Telescope to reduce thermal gradients on the optical elements. As a result of a trade-off, the deployment was chosen to be based on an inflatable structure. The baffle consists of aluminium-kapton booms that form a cylindrical shape, and are...

Introduction In navigation locks levelling is executed under free flow. The net flow from the upper section into the lower section of the waterway is considered as a water loss. An innovative water saving concept is an IRS Lock. IRS stands for inflatable rubber structure. The concept consists of an air filled IRS applied in a lock chamber. In...

New space debris mitigation guidelines require satellites in low Earth orbit to de-orbit within 25 years after end of life. This effectively limits the orbital altitude of conventional CubeSat satellites to 400-700 km. For CubeSats employing the generic inflatable de-orbit device discussed here, this range is extended to 910 km by increasing the...
