Colloquium Tom Van Hemelen (FPP)

25 april 2017 | 10:30 - 14 december 2016
plaats: Room H, Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Kluyverweg 1, Delft.

Investigation of Aircraft NoiseAircraft noise is quantified in the aviation industry using the Effective Perceived Noise Level (EPNL) metric. In contrast to this community noise planning makes use of A-weighted decibel metrics such as LA and SEL. This research investigated the relationship between EPNL and the A-weighted metrics LA and SEL. This project was coupled with a need for aircraft...Lees verder

 

Colloquium Jesper van Manen (FPP)

25 april 2017 | 14:30 - 17:45
plaats: room CZ-J, Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Kluyverweg 1, Delft.

Aviation H2O and NOx climate cost functions based on local weatherOne promising possibility for mitigation of aviation climate impact is climate-optimised routing. For the REACT4C project the variation of aviation climate impact with location and weather in the North-Atlantic was simulated, but this method is too computationally expensive to apply beyond initial research. This research...Lees verder

PIV pressure reconstruction using mimetic isogeometric analysisThesis Abstract: From Particle Image Velocimetry data, pressure and velocity fields are reconstructed using mimetic isogeometric analysis. This technique allows for high order divergence free reconstructions on complex CAD geometry, and automatic filtering of noise in the data. Noise filtering performance is investigated using a...Lees verder

Improving the orbit accuracy of the Swarm satellite constellation using Higher Order Ionospheric CorrectionsGPS-based orbit determination is becoming more popular for Earth centred missions. The system's reliability is affected by several error sources, one of which is the Earth's atmosphere. With the aim of achieving an improved precise orbit determination (POD) for ESA's...Lees verder
