New Energy Technologies at Airports

TRB

TRB conducted a webinar on April 29, 2015, from 2:00pm to 3:30pm ET that featured research conducted by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) on new energy technologies at airports. Webinar presenters provided guidance for airport practitioners who are considering implementation of these new technologies, including electric vehicle charging stations at parking facilities and the compatibility of sustainable energy technologies at airport settings.

The unbundling of rate structures and ancillary services, combined with escalating demands of the “always connected” consumer, have made the similarities between airlines and retail more significant than ever. Retail and airline customers are influenced by many of the same factors. The two are increasingly comparing and contrasting products and researching their options before making purchases.

DEMAND for UNMANNED® presents: Aircraft and Rotorcraft System Identification Engineering Methods for UAV Applications

aiaa

System identification methods are ideally suited for rapidly determining bare-airframe simulation models of fixed-wing and rotorcraft UAVs, since UAV configurations change widely throughout their development process. Also the parameters needed for a physics-based model are often poorly known for UAVs, or the modeling assumptions do to correspond well to the physical characteristics of modern UAV configurations. A full-flight envelope UAV simulation can be obtained from “stitching” together only a few point identification models, obtained from a very limited flight-testing program. This webinar will review the fundamentals of the frequency-response method for UAV aircraft and rotorcraft system identification. Special methods are needed for modern multi-copter or eVTOL configurations with highly redundant controls. Identifications methods and results are illustrated with many recent UAV examples. Particular emphasis is given to the important role of system identification in UAV flight control development, implementation verification, and documentation of performance. The course will review key methods, computational tools, and complimentary reference material. The lecture material will be followed by a question and answer period.

Gaining insight into aircraft aeroacoustics through efficient wind tunnel testing

Siemens

When designing a new aircraft configuration, predicting the aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance early in the program is important. Numerical procedures such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can help addressing this challenge. However, wind tunnel testing is necessary to validate these predictions for single aircraft components as well as the overall configuration. Testing the aircraft configuration on a scaled model can bring additional engineering insights long before the aircraft can actually fly.
