Untersuchung von PIO-Tendenzen bei plötzlichen Umschaltungen in der Flugdynamik

Schönfeld, Andrej (2019)

Bisher wurden Kopplungsphänomene des Gesamtsystems Pilot-Flugzeug (Piloteninduzierte Schwingungen, PIO) nach einer Umschaltung im Flugregelungssystem nur unzureichend systematisch untersucht. In den letzten Jahren traten jedoch einige Vorfälle in der zivilen Luftfahrt auf, die zeigten, dass schwere Vorfälle entstehen können, wenn Umschaltungen der Flugregelungsgesetze involviert sind. Die vorli...

Methodik zur Bewertung von Flugverfahren hinsichtlich Fluglärm und weiteren Kriterien

Müller, Marvin ; Strümpfel, Christoph (2019-01)

Geänderte Betriebsverfahren an Flughäfen können für Bewohner von flughafennahen Gebieten verminderten Fluglärm und verbesserte Luftqualität bedeuten, während in anderen Gebieten im Umkreis von Flughäfen gegensätzliche Effekte zu beobachten sind. Folglich ist an Flughäfen, insbesondere jenen in Industrieländern, ein massiver Interessenkonflikt während des Flugbetriebs und in Hinblick auf Änderun...

Control of secondary flow structures on a highly loaded compressor cascade

Zander, Vincent ; Nitsche, W. (2013)

This paper presents detailed flow-field measurements for a compressor cascade equipped with synthetic jet actuators for active flow control. The synthetic jets are mounted on the cascade sidewall and the suction side surface of the blade to reduce the total pressure loss caused by strong secondary flow structures developing in the passage. There are certain articles reporting that synthetic jet...

Experimental investigations on a large-scale compressor cascade equipped with 30 synthetic jet actuators mounted to the sidewalls and the blades themselves have been carried out. Results for a variation of the inflow angle, the jet amplitude, and ...

Studies on conventional cutting of intermetallic nickel and titanium aluminides

Uhlmann, Eckart ; Herter, S. (2006)

Owing to the high percentage of covalent bonds, intermetallic nickel and titanium aluminides have specific physical and chemical characteristics that predestine them for components under high thermal and mechanical load. However, the relatively low ductility and thermal conductivity at room temperature, linked to high tensile strength, impede the machining with geometrically defined cutting edg...

Monitoring of slowly progressing deterioration of computer numerical control machine axes

Uhlmann, Eckart ; Geisert, C. ; Hohwieler, E. (2008)

The feed axes of computer numerical control (CNC) grinding machine tools are among the most mechanically stressed components of machine tools owing to the high process forces and rough manufacturing environment which they encounter. The resulting wear and tear depends strongly on the product range and the manner of machine operation. To counteract a functional deficiency of these central machin...

A wall shear stress measurement technique using the thermal wakes of small heated spots

Rudolph, I. ; Reyer, M. ; Nitsche, W. (2009)

A new thermo-optical method for the measurement of wall shear stresses is presented. The technique exploits that the surface temperature field and the near wall flow are closely linked by correlating the thermal wakes of small heated spots with the wall shear stress. Numerical as well as experimental results are presented and different correlation and design parameters are examined. In contrast...

Aeroelastic assessment of a highly loaded high pressure compressor exposed to pressure gain combustion disturbances

Bicalho Civinelli de Almeida, Victor ; Peitsch, Dieter (2018-10-15)

A numerical aeroelastic assessment of a highly loaded high pressure compressor exposed to flow disturbances is presented in this paper. The disturbances originate from novel, inherently unsteady, pressure gain combustion processes, such as pulse detonation, shockless explosion, wave rotor or piston topping composite cycles. All these arrangements promise to reduce substantially the specific fue...
