Amritpal Singh Digital Publishing in Engineering Research and Development As an individual in a company or as part of the international science community the need arises to communicate/disseminate your work results among your peers. Today the communication and/or dissemination will primarily be digital, but in most cases still traditionally based on writing. Other means of digital communication (voice, graphical, video, data centered) are possible, but not the main focus of this task. A company would have (hopefully) defined its product centered communication strategies and standards. Information will primarily be pushed through the organization as need to know requires. Corporate research results are archived and kept secret, protected by patents, or shared with the international science community. In the international science community, the information is rather pulled by researchers in literature reviews. For this reason, researchers make their results publically available in established databases and/or consider alternative means of dissemination through the Internet. The project gives an overview of the various modern digital publishing concepts and provides students with a hands-on experience ranging from scientific writing to publishing strategies for their own career development, be it in industry or academia.

A proposed Table of Contents is already available. Your task is quite simple. You start writing from the first day. Based on the (mostly) Wikipedia articles given in the Table of Contents above you will find your way through the information presented on the Internet. As such, you will produce a report giving an introduction to all major aspects of "Digital Publishing in Engineering Research and Development".

Finn Briegert Aircraft Contrails - Observation and Prediction Aviation-induced cloudiness (due to contrails, persistent contrails and contrail cirrus) is responsible for about half of the warming effect of aviation (depending on the metric). We see contrails and contrail cirrus on the blue sky. Let's have a closer look: Collect pictures of contrails in all forms and measure (if possible) their life time. Use https://www.flightradar24.com, point your smart phone towards the aircraft and the application will identify the aircraft causing the contrail (type of aircraft, airline, destination, ...). To get all required data requires a "GOLD subscription" (4,50 EUR/month) and yields: GPS altitude, TAS, IAS, M, T (outside temperature), vertical speed (probably zero), aircraft type, airline. Also calculate T from a = V/M, a = a0θ1/2 and θ = T/T0. Compare with given temperature and with ICAO temperature at GPS altitude to give ΔT. Calculate pressure at altitude (accounting for ΔT). Compare with satellite data:

Predict the possibility of contrail formation with the Schmidt-Appleman Diagram (Fig. 4a). In order to do so, we need to have a rough value of the relative humidity from sattellite images showing water vapor. Alternatively, a relative humidity of 90% is assumed in case of apparent persistent contrails. A comparison can be made between the observed contrail and its physical possibility according to the Schmidt-Appleman Diagram. The ideas for this task came from a lecture (pages 20-26). The task may conclude, wether flying lower (or higher) could be a means to avoid contrails based on observation and prediction. What would this imply further related to aircraft operation and design?

Design of a Hydrogen Near Zero Emission Passenger Aircraft Requirements: 120 .. 200 pax, 2000 NM, cruise Mach number 0.78 (i.e. the reference are the A320 TLAR)
Technology options (and combinations): Hydrogen turbofan or turboprop, hybrid with fuel cell and embedded electric motor (for boost or cruise).
Fuel options: LH2 (new design), synthetic fuel (drop-in fuel).
Design for different objectives (minimum of ...): DOC, fuel, primary energy, climate impact, environmental impact (climate & resources).
Zero emission (zero climate impact) is impossible.
Burning hydrogen produces water and NOx.
It is primarily NOT about "decarbonization".
The major environmental effect depends on cruise altitude and Aviation Induced Cloudiness (AIC).
Aviation has a water problem more than a CO2 problem.
All considerations have to be based on a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and its "Single Score".

Preliminary Sizing of Propeller Aircraft (Part 23) 1.) The Preliminary Sizing Tool: PreSTo-Classic has been used by many more than 1000 students over two decades. Marlis Krull has produced a version for (large) Part25 propeller aircraft "PreSTo-Classic-Prop.xlsx". I have now published her work on http://bibliothek.profscholz.de. Your initial task is to make a little modification to Marlis' Excel table to make the code more efficient (I will tell you). Subsequently, you will modify her Excel-Table such that it takes care of Part23 certification requirements for small propeller aircraft. Joeri Heinemann produced a Master Thesis titled "Preliminary Sizing of FAR Part 23 and Part 25 Aircraft" (12.07.2012). Please find the thesis on http://library.ProfScholz.de. It has all been done in some way. What is missing: Marlis' standardized layout needs to be linked to Joeri's general results for Part23 aircraft. This tool should be tested with the redesign of a small propeller aircraft.

2.) Next, optimization capabilities are added to the tool from 1.). This task will add another Excel-Table to the project SAS (Simple Aircraft Sizing). The page has already a table for Part25-Jets and will soon get another table for Part25-Props produced by Marlis Krull. The next table to be produced is: SAS-Part23-Prop. To do so, modify SAS-Part25-Prop for small Part23 aircraft (see Joeri Heinemann). Again, physics are the same, but the certification requirements are different. This adaption should not be difficult with all foregoing work.

Pierpaolo Marangon Analytical Balanced Field Length Calculation Calculation of the Balanced Field Length (BFL) traditionally involves a numerical calculation, where the various forces are evaluated as a function of speed, using a step-wise integration and an estimate for V1. The process is iterated with different values for the engine failure speed until the accelerate-stop and accelerate-go distances are equal. Dennis Lucht wrote a thesis: Numerical and Analytical Takeoff Field Length Calculations for Jet Aircraft. He performs a numeric integration with MATLAB (Chapter 5.2.4) to obtain BFL. The equations are also listed in the MATLAB m-files. Instead of using MATLAB with the function "ode45", now BFL is calculated with an equation obtained from solving the integral of the equation of motion. This is explained in Chapter 5.2.3. As such, all equations from Lucht can be inserted into Excel. A spread sheet with a friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) should be produced to allow eays and accurated BFL calculation. Instead of using the Oswald factor (span efficiency factor) from Howe (Chapter 2.4, Equation 2.38), the method from Nita 2012 should be included into Excel. See also here. Apply your Excel-Table to the Airbus A320 and A340 and compare your results with those from Lucht. A comparison with Take-Off Filed Length (TOFL) values from Airbus should also be included.

Madina Sultani From CAS to EAS – Calculating and Plotting the Compressibility Correction Chart The FM-Script from Trevor Young has all necessary equations. It is supplemented by Unterlagen zur Vorlesung Flugmechanik 1. Task is to produce a plot of the Compressibility Correction Chart. ΔVC = VC – VE. VC is the input value (x axis). VE is calculated from [1.4-20] (from page 25) with δ = f(h) from "Equations for the International Standard Atmosphere". h is taken as parameter producing the various curves in the Compressibility Correction Chart. See also Example 1.3 in the FM-Script from Trevor Young and consider ΔVC = VC – VE. Plotting can be done with gnuplot.

More difficult to produce is the Compressibility Correction Chart with Mach number, M as parameter producing the various curves. This is the way forward: ΔVC is calculated with [1.4-20] (from page 24) as function of M. Nondimensional pressure, δ is calculated from δ = (1 + 0.2 M2)-3.5. This equation is [1.4-15] (page 23). VC as value for the x-axis is obtained from VC = ΔVC + M a0 δ1/2. Again: δ = (1 + 0.2 M2)-3.5. Here values for the x-axis and the y-axis are calculated, stored in a file and introduced into the plot from the file. Again, gnuplot can be used.

The report should give an introduction into the topic similar to the section "Calibrated Airspeed" from FM-Script by Trevor Young. It should show the derivation of the equation used to produce the plot. A literature review should point to other publications, in which the production of the Compressibility Correction Chart is explained. One such example is Walter Bislin. Please note also the contribution of Dennis Lucht and his check of the rule of thumb (ROT) based on two equations:
VTAS = 6FL/10 + VCAS + TT (in kt, FL: Flight Level, TT in °C) and VTAS = VCAS + 2% h/1000 ft (valid only for low level and low speed).

Mohamed Kamel Haddar Calculating Parameters for the Double Trapezoidal Wing A double trapezoidal wing, i.e. a wing with a kink, becomes necessary for the integration of a wing mounted landing gear (and has several other advantages). The wing is where the center of gravity (CG) is located and the main landing gear needs to be positioned aft of the CG. If in this situation it is decided to attach the landing gear to the wing, a strong structural member (an additional inboard rear spar further aft) is needed for landing gear attachment. This additional rear spar needs to be integrated into the wing planform and leads to a "Yehudi". For "Yehudi" compare with Mason, Lissys, and Leeham. Once optimum parameters are found for the trapezoidal wing, the database needs to be extended to include also all parameters to describe the double trapezoidal wing. This has been programed in Excel in OpenVSP-Connect (http://openvsp.profscholz.de) and is described in Ramachandran 2017. However missing is a) a small separate Excel table for double trapezoidal wing layout, parameter calculation, and planform visualization, b) a simple explanation of the iterative(?) nature of this calculation. The project should also include a systematic literature review of the "Yehudi". Project, Master Inland WS22/23

Antonio Martínez Cano Fuselage Tank Location Trade-Off for Passenger Aircraft Powered with Liquid Hydrogen It seems to be advantageous, to store Liquid Hydrogen (LH2) in future passenger aircraft in the fuselage and to make the fuselage longer according to the required fuel volume. Two solutions are possible: 1.) a balanced aircraft configuration with one tank in the back of the fuselage and on tank aft of the cockpit, 2.) a less well balanced aircraft configuration (page 6) with two tanks (for reduncancy) both in the back of the fuselage . In solution 1.) the integration of the forward tank outside of the pressure cabin (for safety reasons) is difficult. Show solutions how this could be done. Estimate the increase in mass due to additional pressure bulk heads and similar additions related to the baseline. How does this translate to increased fuel consumption? In solution 2.) the shift in CG location will be larger. Start with a simple calculation to show the CG shift from full to empty tank expressed in percent MAC. Look at the chapter Empennage Sizing from the Aircraft Design lecture notes. Estimate by what percentage the horizontal tail will be larger on a less well balanced aircraft configuration (2) related to the baseline. How does this translate to mass and drag increase (and L/D reduction)? How does this translate to increased fuel consumption? Calculate with an Excel Table. Keep your calculations general, so that it is based on a set of input parameters. What is the better solution (1) or (2)? Master Thesis Ausland SS22

Shirin Salehi Comparing Modes of Transportation with an Improved Kármán–Gabrielli Diagram

The start of the considerations is:

GABRIELLI, G., von KARMAN, Th., 1950: What price speed? Specific power required for propulsion of vehicles. Mechanical Engineering, vol. 72 (1950), no.10, pp. 775-781. Available from: https://perma.cc/5FZH-YGTR

Three parameters are collected for each mode of tranportation: total weight (W), max. power (P) and max. speed (V). P/(W*V) is called "specific power". The idea was revisited in 2005 (https://perma.cc/43XQ-BJRW). Now P/(W*V) is called "specific resistance". The concept is discussed further e.g. on Wikipedia. Now the inverse is used: (W*V)/P = W/D = L/D, with lift (L) and drag (D) we get the well know glide ratio (L over D). In this new way, the "Kármán Gabrielli Diagram" (KG Diagram) may be plotted like this. Moreover, P/(W*V) with V=s/t can also be understood as a proxy of (P*t)/(s*W) can be understood as fuel consumption per weight. The plot shows a technology limit. Specific resistance is proportional to speed. This means, we have to pay for speed. This is the answer to the original question: "What price speed". But for the same speed some modes of transportation are better than others. Which modes of transportation are better in general? Which in aviation? Task is to look at the critique of the KG Diagram:

  • Only the percentage of power should be considered which is used in cruise. 
  • Cruise speed should be used not max. speed.
  • Payload should be used instead of total weight.
  • Instead of shaft power and speed, fuel consumption should be used, or even better primary energy consumption.

Ways to overcome the KG simplifications should be proposed as well as applied and the results should be discussed.

David Delgado del Río Revealing the Technical Secrets of the 40 Most Used Passenger Aircraft with Reverse Engineering Am Excel-File is available with a program that facilitates to reverse engineer aircraft (at the level of aircraft design). The program was the outcome of a Master Thesis. The program is well documented. A big secret of an engine manufacturer is the Specific Fuel Consumption (SFC) of the jet engine. A big secret of an aircraft manufacturer is the aerodynamic efficiency expressed by the maximum ratio of lift over drag (L/D)_max. Another secret of the aircraft manufacturer is the maximum lift coefficient of the aircraft. We want to offer the aircraft design community a very good assumption of mainly these three parameters (and some "byproducts"). The 40 most used passenger aircraft types together serve over 90% of all the passenger flights in the world. Master Thesis Ausland SS20

Niklas Brüge, Felix Kranich Estimation of an Aircraft's Effective Perceived Noise Level from Its Basic Parameters A realistic simulation of aircraft noise during take-off and landing is impossible with simple methods. Nevertheless, simple methods are needed in preliminary aircraft design, if aircraft parameters should be optimized early on - also to the benefit of designing a low(er) noise aircraft. A suitable approach is, to estimate Effective Perceived Noise Levels based on established correlations between basic aircraft parameters and the aircraft's noise level. Proposals can be found in the literature (here and here). Task is to make a literature review to get an overview of such methods, select a simple method and build a spreadsheet (Excel) with which the selected method can be used with ease.

Taner Ayan Analyse der Liegezeiten von Passagierflugzeugen nach Fume Events mittels Flugverfolgung Fume Events präziser Cabin Air Contamination Events (CACE) sind Ereignisse bei denen die Kabinenluft von Passagierflugzeugen kontaminiert wird. In schweren Fällen ist die Kabine durch Rauch (fumes) erfüllt. Die Kontamination kann durch giftige Stoffe aus dem Triebwerksöl verursacht sein. Dadurch können Besatzung und Passagiere kurzfristige und chronische Gesundheitsschäden erleiden. Die Kontamination der Kabinenluft kann zur Flugunfähigkeit der Piloten führen und stellt dadurch eine Gefahr für die Flugsicherheit dar. Flugzeughersteller haben Anweisungen herausgegeben, wie ein Flugzeug nach einem Fume Event zu reinigen sei. Ziel dieser Untersuchung ist, eine Liste mit aktuellen Fume Events zu erstellen, die entsprechenden Flüge mit Onlinediensten zur Flugverfolung zu identifizieren, die Dauer einer eventuellen sich anschließenden Liegezeit zu erfassen und diese mit den Reinigungsanweisungen zu vergleichen.

Dennis Tietke Comparison of Potential Oil Leakage of Jet Engines - Evaluation of Design Parameters Cabin Air Contamination (details here) is caused by leakage through the seals of jet engines. Jet engines have heavy shafts supported by bearings. They are lubricated and sealed. These seals leak small amounts of oil by design. The leackage related concentration of hydrocarbons in the cabin depends not only on the amount of oil leaving the seals, but also on a set of engine and aircraft parameters, because not all of the oil can reach the cabin. The parameters are combined in one simple equation. We look at a number of dominant jet aircraft and their engines in order to calculate the cabin air contamination potential. A comparison may reveal aircraft-engine-combinations more prone to cabin air contamination than others based already on external design parameters. Project Inland WS19-20

Mia Eder G. Corning's Airplane Design Methodology As early as 1953 Gerald Corning, professor at the University of Maryland, devised a method for his students for the layout of subsonic passenger aircraft. Starting from requirements and ending at Direct Operating Costs. The method is given in his book Supersonic and subsonic airplane design (published by the author, in 1953 and 1960) in Chapter II. Task is to put the method in a clear and easy understandable sequence, to update some of the parameters to current technology levels, and to make the method available in form of a spreadsheet.

Karim Drews Bulk or Containerized Loading of Narrow-Body and Wide-Body Aircraft - What to Prefer? Airlines have the choice if they want to use container to load baggage or if suitcases are stored one by one in the cargo compartment. Cargo is mostly loaded in container. Smaller aircraft do not offer containerized loading. MD90 and Dash8 aircraft may operate with bulk baggage container. Wide-body aircraft use mostly the LD-3 type container. The narrow-body Airbus A320 can accommodate LD-3 container with reduced height. Hence some interline compatibility is offered between narrow- and wide-body aircraft. Container allow a quicker turn around of the aircraft leading to a higher utilization and potentially reducing Direct Operation Costs (DOC). Nevertheless, container add weight that reduces payload. Container require additional investment leading to depreciation and additional costs. In the end the preferred choice is a trade-off between depreciation, payload, and turn around time respectively turn around costs. See also: SKYbrary. This task may lead to an exchange of ideas with Etihad Airways. Project Inland --- --- nein J DS
Johann Metzger Analyse des Sinkfluges von Germanwings 4U9525 I started with calculations of the Airbus A320's flight based only on a few points in time during the descent. A more detailed calculation will include more time steps, investigate more parameters (wind speed), and put everything in a comprehensive table. This table will be based on elementary data from FlightRadar24 or other available data at the time of writing. It will calculate depending parameters and compare these with published data. The result will be a set of parameters consistently describing the descent of 4U9525 also including parameters of the aircraft's aerodynamics and flight modes according to the autopilot logic and Fly-by-Wire flight control laws.

Aqib Khan Fuel Consumption during Extreme Long and Short Flights The average fuel consumption expressed in kg/100 km is relatively high for very long flights, but also for very short flights. Plotting fuel consumption versus flight distance we expect to get a typical "bath tub curve". This curve should be analyzed and discussed. Bachelor Thesis Ausland SS15

Veselin Pavlov Aircraft 3D-Modeling with OpenVSP-Connect NASA offers the tool Open Vehicle Sketch Pad (OpenVSP). OpenVSP-Connect from AERO at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences Hamburg is an interface tool between any Excel based aircraft design tool and OpenVSP. OpenVSP-Connect is an Excel based tool which uses Visual Basic Macros. It needs 46 aircraft (geometry) parameters in order to provide a 3D visualization of a designed aircraft. The software never asks for a parameter without suggesting one first or giving a value by default. First objective is to improve OpenVSP-Connect such that it can be used as a self-contained tool which estimates all necessary 46 parameters from an hand full of requirements to visualize an aircraft. Second objective is to show how to incorporate OpenVSP-Connect in any already existing tool chain. In this way OpenVSP-Connect should also provide the missing link between any other aircraft design tool made by the AERO, i.e. Aircraft Preliminary Sizing Tool (PreSTo) and OpenVSP.

Sowmya Thyagarajan Mass Estimation with the LTH/DLR-Method The German Aerospace Center (DLR) has published a simple, parametric method in the German Aeronautical Handbook (Luftfahrt Technisches Handbuch - LTH) to estimate the mass of major aircraft components. The method is called: "Large Civil Jet Transport (MTOM > 40t), Statistical Mass Estimation, MA401". The project compares the method with the one given in "Torenbeek" with respect to approach and accuracy.
