  1. 1. Birds in the Flow: Flight Mechanics, Wake Dynamics and Flight Performance

    Författare :Mikael Rosén; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; Eleonora s falcon.; hunting; optimum wingspan; tail posture; wingbeat kinematics; wake topology; DPIV; flight performance; wake dynamics; flight mechanics; wind tunnel; Flight; bird;

    Sammanfattning : I share my fascination of bird flight with many others, and here I summarise my thesis on the subject. This thesis emphasises the mechanics of bird flight by focusing on flight mechanics, wake dynamics and flight performance. LÄS MER

    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; flow control; drag reduction; net energy saving; adaptive control; model-based control; optimal control; flat-plate boundary layer; laminar-to- turbulent transition; plasma actuator; direct numerical simulation; in-flight experiments; strömningsstyrning; friktionsreduktion; netto energibesparing; adaptiv styrning; modellbaserad styrning; optimal kontroll; gränsskikt öve en plan platta; laminärt till turbulent omslag; plasma aktuator; DNS; flyg prov; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Sammanfattning : Transition delay in boundary-layer flows is achieved via reactive control of flow instabilities, i.e. Tollmien-Schlichting (TS) waves. Adaptive and model-based control techniques are investigated by means of direct numerical simulations (DNS) and experiments. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Fatigue Performance of Additive Manufactured Ti6Al4V in Aerospace Applications

    Författare :Magnus Kahlin; Johan Moverare; Hans Ansell; Pavel Krakhmalev; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : Additive Manufacturing (AM) for metals includes is a group of production methodst hat use a layer-by-layer approach to directly manufacture final parts. In recent years, the production rate and material quality of additive manufactured materials have improved rapidly which has gained increased interest from the industry to use AM not only for prototyping, but for serial production.

  4. 4. A few aspects of aircraft noise

    Författare :Crispin Dickson; Shafiquzzaman Khan; Mendel Kleiner; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; paired comparison; sorting based paired comparison; sorting algorithms; mergesort; quicksort; aircraft sound synthesis; aircraft noise; sound quality; tonal effects; angle positions; flight conditions; methods of equalization; cognition; Acoustics; Akustik;

    Sammanfattning : A few aspects of aircraft noise were evaluated. These were (i) methods of subjective evaluations, (ii) effects of equalization and (iii) the effects of cognitive aspects.In the first paper, sorting algorithms were used instead of conventional paired comparison method in order to reduce the number of pairs in the evaluation of subjective judgments.

  5. 5. User Preferred Trajectories in Commercial Aircraft Operation: Design and Implementation

    Författare :Hanyo Vera Anders; Arthur Rizzi; Tobias Andersson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; aeronautics; air traffic management; aircraft operation; flygteknik; flygledning; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Sammanfattning : This report describes how an aircraft creates and flies its User Preferred Trajectory from take-off to landing, based on the objectives and constraints the aircraft is subjected to from a technological and operational viewpoint. A basic description of commercial aircraft operation is given, with an emphasis on identifying the different stakeholders (Air Navigation Service Providers, Airline Operation Center, Pilot/Aircraft, Airport and Civil Aviation Authority).
