Pinto, Martino (author)
Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV) is an effective and non-intrusive flow measurement technique that is able to provide quantitative information of the full velocity field at a certain instant in time, by tracking each particle individually with high-speed cameras. This permits to have a very high precision in measuring the flow evolutions. The...

Developments in computational capabilities and the always increasing demand for higher performance of internal flow applications has meant that Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has become an essential tool within the design process. A key point of interest is to couple the fluid solver with numerical optimisation techniques in order to obtain...

A popular class of methods for solving Fluid-Structure Interactions (FSI) problems computationally are the moving mesh deformation methods. These methods generally involve deforming the fluid domain so that it conforms to the structure as it undergoes changes. An efficient and robust moving mesh technique involves interpolation of displacements...

This paper investigates the full variance–covariance (VC) matrix of two high-resolution regional quasi-geoid models, utilizing a spherical radial basis function parameterization. Model parameters were estimated using weighted least-squares techniques and variance component estimation (VCE) for data weighting. The first model, known as the ...

Andrade Castanheira, Francisco (author)
The optimization of interplanetary, low-­thrust trajectories is a computationally expensive aspect of preliminary mission design. To reduce the computational burden associated with it, surrogate models can be used as cheap approximations of the original fitness function. Training the surrogate models in a fully online manner can be done to...

Chiang, Y.-C. (author)
Shell structures carry loads with their thin yet curved shapes. Being thin means shells require little material, which is desirable for minimizing embodied carbon footprints. However, the feature of being curved implies shells require immense effort to design and fabricate. To address the challenges, this dissertation consists of three parts:...

The equilibrium of a membrane shell is governed by Pucher's equation that is described in terms of the relations among the external load, the shape of the shell, and the Airy stress function. Most of the existing funicular form-finding algorithms take a discretized stress network as the input and find the shape. When the resulting shape does...

Globalized dual heuristic programming (GDHP) is the most comprehensive adaptive critic design, which employs its critic to minimize the error with respect to both the cost-to-go and its derivatives simultaneously. Its implementation, however, confronts a dilemma of either introducing more computational load by explicitly calculating the...

High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) configurations have gained much popularity in the recent past. Although, HALE aircraft enable efficient and environmental-friendly flying, they necessitate a large Aspect-Ratio wing. These slender structures are prone to large, non-linear deformations which further increase the unsteady nature of aerodynamic...

<br/>Being a safe and healthy alternative for polluting and space-inefficient motorised vehicles, cycling can strongly improve living conditions in urban areas. Idling in front of traffic lights is seen as one of the major inconveniences of commuting by bicycle. By giving personalised speed advice, the probability of catching a green light can...

Xu, Fei (author), Kenjeres, S. (author)
We present a new numerical simulation framework for prediction of flow patterns in the human left ventricle model. In this study, a radial basis function (RBF) mesh morphing method is developed and applied within the finite-volume computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approach. The numerical simulations are designed to closely mimic details of...

Mathew, Maria (author)
This thesis studies a novel mesh deformation method based on radial basis functions to improve mesh quality in regions with small wall clearances. For fluid-structure interaction problems or imposed motion CFD problems, the usually fixed Eulerian fluid meshes have to undergo deformation to conform to the deforming structure. In such cases, it is...

This research was aimed to assess the potential of a radial basis function (RBF) approximation method against the dislocation substructure-based constitutive model in predicting high-temperature deformation behavior of the AA7020 aluminum alloy. Hot compression tests were performed over a range of strain rate of 0.1–100 s<sup>−1</sup> and a...

We present a local quasi-geoid (QG) model which combines a satellite-only global gravity model with local data sets using weighted least squares. The QG is computed for an area comprising the Netherlands, Belgium, and the southern North Sea. It uses a two-scale spherical radial basis function model complemented by bias parameters to account...

Loss of control-in flight (LOC-I) is one of the causes of catastrophic aircraft accidents. Fault-tolerant flight control (FTFC) systems can prevent LOC-I and recover aircraft from its precursors. One group of promising methods for developing Fault-Tolerant Control (FTC) system is the Adaptive Critic Designs (ACD). Recently one ACD algorithm,...

The use of tangential vector fields and thus the need for designing them has steadily been increasing over the years. In this master thesis, a method is proposed and implemented that defines localized tangential vector fields on a mesh surface, which allows for the designing of vector fields on the triangulated surfaces of these meshes....

The posed question arises for instance in regional gravity field modelling using weighted least-squares techniques if the gravity field functionals are synthesised from the spherical harmonic coefficients of a satellite-only global gravity model (GGM), and are used as one of the noisy datasets. The associated noise covariance matrix, appeared...

The paper is about a methodology to combine a noisy satellite-only global gravity field model (GGM) with other noisy datasets to estimate a local quasi-geoid model using weighted least-squares techniques. In this way, we attempt to improve the quality of the estimated quasi-geoid model and to complement it with a full noise covariance matrix...

The use of radial basis function (RBF) expansion as a means to represent the generalized pupil function for aberration retrieval from intensity point-spread function has been investigated in this research article. The optimal choice of RBF hyper-parameters is derived empirically to achieve an increased accuracy of approximation along with well...
