Snelders, Jeffrey (author)
The aviation industry confronts challenges from increased air traffic and environmental concerns. Enhancing engine efficiency becomes crucial due to persistent greenhouse gas emissions from air travel, particularly in long flights with high CO2 emissions. Higher by-pass ratios (BPR) can address this by boosting engine propulsive efficiency, yet...

Boundary layer ingestion is an airframe-propulsion integration technology capable of enhancing aircraft propulsive efficiency. The Propulsive Fuselage Concept, a tube-and-wing layout with an rear-fuselage-mounted propulsor in the boundary layer ingestion configuration, especially takes advantage this. However, the relation between physical shape...

Kilkiş, San (author)
Present Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) applications do not facilitate collaborative processes due to lack of process formalization and orchestration capabilities, leading to ad-hoc solutions. This increases application development time, reduces re-usability, and increases the cognitive burden of users leading to decreased design efficiency....

Heimans, Colin (author)
To reduce the environmental impact of aviation, new aircraft configurations are investigated. One of these researches is the PARSIFAL project, that investigates an efficient box-wing aircraft for passenger transport. In previous work, an engine sizing tool is developed to design the engines of the PARSIFAL aircraft. The tool is developed as part...

Proesmans, Pieter-Jan (author)
The design and integration of the propulsion system is known to be an interesting, multi-disciplinary challenge in aircraft design projects. Especially for new aircraft configurations, it is important to gain a lot of knowledge in the preliminary design stages. An example of such an unconventional configuration is the box-wing aircraft examined...

Vazquez Bustelo, Jaime (author)
In the last ten years, the airlines are demanding lower aircraft prices and fuel consumption. Aircraft manufacturers as well as component and sub-assembly manufacturers are adapting to this situation by optimizing existing aircraft configurations. Traditional design processes, due to their inability to capture multidisciplinarity at the early...

Smeets, Thaïs (author)
Reducing turnaround time and increasing passenger comfort are requirements that should be tackled for medium range flights. Reducing turnaround time could be achieved by increasing the fuselage aisle width and increasing passenger comfort by increasing the space allocated to carry-on luggage. Because research is now looking at novel aircraft...

The Flying V, a concept aircraft configuration, has been proposed by Airbus and TU Berlin. The initial indications of potential improvements in performance over conventional aircraft gave rise to a continuation of the research. For this, the mass characteristics of the configuration must be explored. <br/><br/>A primary structure concept is...

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...
