Schelbergen, M. (author)
The potential of utility-scale airborne wind energy (AWE) systems to contribute significantly to the energy transition hinges on their large-scale deployment, which depends on the cost-competitiveness and complementarity with conventional wind turbines. Central to the assessment of these metrics is understanding long-term energy production,...

This study introduces a novel framework of metocean prediction and ship performance models that integrate multiple layers of modeling to evaluate the environmental impact of ship emissions. It enables scenario simulations that assess a ship's performance, estimates pollutant emissions, and simulate the fate of these pollutants in the...

Aero engines are critical components in aviation, relying on thermodynamics to convert fuel energy into thrust. Maintenance of these engines constitutes a significant portion of operational costs. Gas path analysis (GPA) is essential for engine health management, relying on performance modeling to simulate engine operations accurately. This...

Fuel-efficient flight operations and improved Air Traffic Management (ATM) operations are identified as one of the main pillars in achieving net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050. While considerable research has focused on airspace management and ATM operations, flight operations as managed by airlines have received little attention. <br/><br/>Accurate...

The validity of current prediction methods for the formation of contrails from modern turbofan engines is investigated. A modelling framework has been developed for estimating the impact of engine configurations on contrail formation by analyzing the physics of the mixing between core and bypass flow. Within this framework, Engine Performance...

Interest grows rapidly in electric and hybrid electric aircraft. To determine the optimal performance and energy management required with such novel powertrain configurations, a knowledge-based aircraft and powertrain performance model is developed. The model is then used to set up an optimal control problem, which is transcribed to a non-linear...

Testing novel concepts in the allocation and use of aircraft is commonly done in air traffic simulators. Current day simulators rely on proprietary models and often propose questionable solutions. This paper uses BlueSky as simulator, in cooperation with performance models OpenAP and BADA. BlueSky aims to provide the user with full freedom to...

Monitoring and evaluating the biofouling state and its effects on the vessel's hull and propeller performance is a crucial problem that attracts the attention of both academy and industry. Effective and reliable tools to address this would allow a timely cleaning procedure able to trade off costs, efficiency, and environmental impacts. In...

Generally, it is expected that the total power of N energy converters in an array will be less than N times the power of a single operative converter. The goal of this paper is to enhance the oscillation of the flap-type WEC and consequently the energy extraction of the whole array in front of a coastal structure. Flaps in an array show...

There are several factorizations of multidimensional tensors into lower-dimensional components, known as ``tensor networks."" We consider the popular ``tensor-train"" (TT) format and ask, How efficiently can we compute a low-rank approximation from a full tensor on current multicore CPUs? Compared to sparse and dense linear algebra, kernel...

Mavroudis, Stamatis (author)
In this thesis, it was examined how high-frequency operational data collected from an automated recording system, can be used to develop a vessel’s performance model. Both the traditional and the Machine Learning (ML) approach were examined. In the traditional approach, every component of the propulsion plant was examined separately, while...

Buildings don’t use energy: People do. Do highly efficient homes really save energy? Counter-intuitively, dwellings that use less energy have low energy efficiency, and those with higher energy consumption have higher efficiency. Moreover, even accurate building energy simulation for multiple buildings could not predict the actual energy...

Objective: Use Fitts’ law to compare accuracy and throughput of three flight deck interfaces for navigation. Background: Industry is proposing touch-based solutions to modernize the flight management system. However, research evaluating touchscreen effectiveness for navigation tasks in terms of accuracy and throughput on the flight deck is...

Aircraft mass is an important parameter in many ways, either to build aircraft performance models, to predict flight trajectories, or to simulate air traffic. Mass data is usually considered as sensitive information for airlines and is, therefore, not disclosed to researchers publicly. In this paper, we use two methods to infer the mass of an...

Heterogeneous platforms are mixes of different processing units in a compute node (e.g., CPUs+GPUs, CPU+MICs) or a chip package (e.g., APUs). This type of platforms keeps gaining popularity in various computer systems ranging from supercomputers to mobile devices. In this context, improving their efficiency and usability has become increasingly...

Producing an oil well is a transient process, and although we like to assume there is a steady state phase in the production life, it is a fragile situation. Due to the many unknowns in the reservoir, changes in well production performance cannot easily be predicted. Changes in the subsurface will influence the production and lifetime of the...

Gas turbine diagnostics is as old as the gas turbine itself. Over the years, performance based diagnostics allowed for a shift from time-based maintenance to more economical condition based maintenance playing a fundamental role in enhancing the availability and reliability of gas turbines. By monitoring the condition of the engine over time,...

A compiler for embedded platforms has many optimization flags providing code size and speed improvement. Traditional profiling methods take lot of time to identify the best combination of the compiler flags to suit the requirement especially if the software stack is very huge. AUTOSAR is one such growing software market in which there is a need...
