The need for better fuel efficiency within the growing aviation sector is increasing every day. Meanwhile conventional aircraft are reaching an asymptote regarding fuel efficiency and therefore the focus switches to unconventional aircraft. These aircraft have unique challenges whereof one is the structural connection between engine and aircraft...

The project aims to develop a co-creative approach to participatory urban planning and design for improved socio-spatial justice through co-creation. The project is situated within a broader context of ‘Them vs Us’ conflicts including rigid social hierarchies of coloniality, caste, class, and expertise that limit the extent to which and what...

Launch vehicle structures, such as payload adapters and interstages, are increasingly designed and constructed using composite materials due to their high stiffness- and strength-to-weight ratios. Therefore, it is important to develop a validated finite element modeling methodology for designing and analyzing composite launch-vehicle shell...

The Flying-V is a novel aircraft configuration that has shown a promising fuel saving potential compared to a conventional aircraft. The V-shaped configuration of the Flying-V integrates the passenger cabin and cargo volume into the lifting surface and has fins to provide lateral and directional stability. Several studies have been conducted...

Unconventional reservoir resources are important to supplement energy consumption and maintain the balance of supply and demand in the oil and gas market. However, due to the complex geological conditions, it is a significant challenge to develop unconventional reservoirs efficiently and economically. At present, unconventional reservoirs are...

Ten years after the initial sketches of the Flying V were made, we intend to give an overview of the development of this concept until the present day. The Flying V is a new concept for an efficient aircraft. It is a pure flying wing which includes a V-shaped passenger cabin. In this work, we describe how the concept developed - from the first...

The Netherlands faces the challenge, especially in the coming years, of coping with the continuous increase in traffic volumes and reducing the number of road casualties. A way to tackle this challenge is by constructing unconventional (American) designs, which aim to reduce travel time and improve traffic safety by rerouting left-turns. This...

A formulation based on the evaluation of power conversions within the system allows to overcome the limitations of conventional momentum analyses to study tightly coupled airframe-propulsion configurations such as Boundary Layer Ingestion. The so-called power balance method is applied in a CFD framework to gain insight about the application of...

This paper comprehensivelyinvestigates the design trade-offs of a Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) operations as an Arbitrary Wave shapesGenerator (AWG) to perform High Voltage (HV) dielectric testing of different grid assets. HV AWG applications pose unique operatingconditions to the MMC, which influences the selection of the various...

It is the aim of this research to assess the mission performance of a boxwing aircraft by developing a configurationagnostic, multifidelity optimal control toolbox for performance and mission analysis. The boxwing aircraft, sometimes named a PrandtlPlane (PrP), is an unconventional aircraft. An instance with redundant controls is designed within...

Traffic throughput at intersections can be improved by using exit lanes for left-turning (EFL), tidal flow lanes near an intersection, which has been recently introduced. This paper considers the operational robustness of the EFL intersection in relation to the control scheme applied to the traffic light setting. For safety and efficiency, it...

The geological history of the McArthur Basin (NT Australia) is poorly understood. It consists of five onshore Paleo- to Mesoproterozoic packages with mainly siliciclastic and carbonate rocks, with cumulative thicknesses up to 15km. The basin contains the world’s oldest hydrocarbons, principally hosted in unconventional...

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...
