Abstract

Even though the theory of optimal control is quite fascinating and a great deal of research has been carried out since the time of Bernoulli and Newton, time and again it has been observed that it suffers from either the “curse of complexity” or the “curse of dimensionality”, making it virtually impossible to implement it in real time. However, several pioneering research has been done in last two decades which cuts through these bottlenecks. A variety of innovative ideas and algorithms have appeared in the literature to compute the optimal control history in real time, thereby opening a whole new possibility of limitless applications, especially in aerospace engineering and mobile robotics. Rapid advancement of computing power has also added positively to this cause. The first part of this keynote talk will contain a brief overview of optimal control theory as well as some of the recently-developed algorithms for fast computation of the optimal control history. This will be followed by an overview of a specific algorithm developed and used extensively by the speaker and his co-workers, named as “Model Predictive Static Programming (MPSP)”. Finally, a few selected challenging space mission problems, namely Autonomous Soft-Landing on Moon, Re-entry Guidance of Reusable Launch Vehicles, Formation Flying of Satellites and Autonomous Docking will be discussed and the utility of the MPSP technique will be outlined.

Abstract

In Education, Instruction, Facilitating and Training there are big differences on the how to use these different styles in teaching and learning. Of less interest is the fact that the to W H O M (personality and culture and age and previous fields of learning etc. ….) and W H A T (knowledge, skills, abilities, viewpoints, attitudes etc.….) play a very important role in the style of transmitting information. This style of instructing, teaching etc has to be adapted to the region of upbringing. In all countries and even within one country we find very different styles of education and upbringing of children. But this early experience is the foundation on which I later have to built my teaching and learning style. And this is the field of pedagogic, biology, neurology, psychology in which we teach theoretical models but not usable techniques for the daily problems. As a result of wrong training at schools, universities and later in the industry we have the human element as main cause for faults, mistakes, misunderstandings, wrong interpretations etc. So this presentation is not just for Pilots, Cabin Attendants, Maintenance/Airport Staff, ATCO, ATSEP and Accident Investigators and Civil Aviation Agencies, but also for doctors and nurses, insurances and bureaucratic organizations, lawyers and managers, as all those are human beings. And all human beings worldwide have some very old genetic programs, which secured our survival for millions of years. Some are absolutely excellent still in today’s technical world and some are dangerous, while some are only annoying. In addition these behavioral programs differ for manual skills and attitudes in different areas, at different times, in different weather because of our DIFFERENT STATE OF MIND!! Copied from EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) 1. Issue and reasoning for regulatory change. Operators and industry bodies have recognized that the traditional training processes do not guarantee that the trained pilots are competent, or they do not adequately address ‘human factors’ issues (IATA, 2013). So what could we learn from our mistakes of the past? If we simplify a bit and compare humans to robotics, than we humans have a hardware called body and a software that controls this hardware and it is called brain. If your PC or laptop does NOT do, what YOU want it to do, do you shout at him? Would you ever get angry at a robot – certainly you would or could, but such behavior is irrational, as we all know. So changing the acting of hardware requires and can only be done effectively, by changing the software. This software change requires the knowledge of a programmer. This programming requires some basic knowledge of hard- and software interaction. For human beings we call the basics of programming: pedagogics, biology, psychology, neurology etc. In aviation we train it as HF (human factors) and CRM (Crew Resource Management), without having good basic knowledge of body – mind interaction. In CRM and HF courses, as well as in instructors and teacher training we spread some theoretical models, later check the retained data in an exam and are astonished if a lot is misinterpreted, misunderstood and therefore cannot be practiced effectively or correctly. So my aim is to give you a very basic and proper knowledge of our CPU called brain. Thereafter you can start to control your CPU instead of trying to stop your body doing unsafe or stupid actions, as we know them from accident investigation (Air France 447/startle effect). So the training of Situational Awareness is a BRAIN TRAINING !!! and cannot be achieved with just manual skill training. Airmanship is skill plus knowledge plus experience. So Airmanship/Captaincy covers a broad range of desirable behaviors and abilities It is not simply a measure of skill or technique, but also a measure of a persons awareness of the aircraft, the boat, the car, the nuclear power station, the lorry etc. and in addition environment in which the person has to operate, and of his own capabilities. Especially of SELF – CONTROL / SELF - DISCIPLINE / SELF - AWARENESS

Biography

Born in Egypt, grew up in Germany. Wanted to become a pilot since the age of 11. After school went to University but disliked the way of teaching there as well. So became a commercial pilot and IFR instructor. After several bankruptcies of companies he worked for and the experience of what psychological stress in this situation employees (flight crew) have to go through, studied psychology. As the lecturing at universities still hadn't changed, he became a Lufthansa Flight Instructor. Thereafter he flew 737-100 up to 737-500 and Airbus 310 and 300. Because he disliked the way of instruction how to fly these jets, he started a company for psychological and brain adapted flight crew training and is in many different ways still active to inform about new and much more efficient ways of learning and of teaching safety awareness.

Abstract

As technology improves, our capacity to explore the solar system has excelled and space data is increasing exponentially. More and more academic institutions, federal agencies and industry leaders are looking to the “final frontier” for insights that can be put to use here on Earth and lead to further exploration. Improvements in multidisciplinary studies for big data analysis are continuously constructed, refined, and utilized. However, most new developments do not apply to issues unique to space data. Space-based big data analysis must consider, the associated physics, efficiency, the mystery, and visuals. Space physics experts ensure that the analysis is efficient and a proper analysis is poised to reveal any previously unknown mysteries through the data. Proper visuals created from said analysis can open the way for new understanding to even entry-level novices in the field.

Abstract

Fibrous composite materials have been used increasingly for aerospace structures because of their high specific strength and stiffness. However, fiber-reinforced composites have much more complex failure modes and failure strengths compared to conventional metallic materials. As a result, many different failure criteria have been proposed to predict failure of fibrous composite structures under combined loading. This lecture presents a newly developed failure criteria for fibrous composite materials. The new failure criteria are based on a multiscale scale approach which links the microscale representing fiber and /matrix materials to the macroscale representing smeared composite materials. The failure criteria use the stresses and strains at the fiber and matrix materials instead of those at the composite material level. There are four failure modes in the criteria; which are fiber fracture, fiber buckling, matrix cracking, and fiber-matrix interface debonding. The presentation includes validation of the new failure criteria against various experimental data.

Abstract

Electrodynamic Tether (EDT) system is a new type of spacecraft that is formed by connecting two satellites with a conductive tether. It possesses unique capabilities to lower or boost spacecraft orbits, power generation, and deorbit space debris, without consuming propellant. The EDT technology takes advantage of two fundamental principles of electromagnetism: electrical current is produced when a conductive wire moves through a magnetic field, and the field exerts a force on the current carrying wire. One of the most appealing application of EDT is the space debris removal due to the advantages of propellentless, low mass, compact size, ease of use and low cost. This paper introduces a current space mission – DESCENT (DEorbiting SpaceCrafts using ElectrodyNamic Tethers) from mission concept study, to mission objectives, nanosatellite design, hardware selection, and operation. The mission involves two 1U-CubeSats connected by a 100m long conductive EDT. Two CubeSats will be launched as one unit into orbit from the International Space Station and subsequently separated to deploy the EDT with gravity gradient. The mission is to demonstrate the deployment and stabilization of an EDT with an end-mass, electrical current generation and satellite deorbit in space. In addition, the mission will provide an innovative approach to improve the interpretation of convective motion in the F-region ionosphere at high latitudes.

Abstract

The analysis of patented innovations in the aircraft, aviation and cosmonautics (AAC) industry is key in order to clearly depict the ongoing creative and knowledge flows between main player-countries at the national industry level. The objective of such an analysis is twofold: - for managers of companies operating in the AAC industry, exploiting the creative potential at the national level as well as anticipating the knowledge and technical advancements in that industry; - for policy makers operating in the industrial and economic policy field, understanding and addressing their policy-setting efforts in order to incentivize the growth of indivdual companies and, as a consequence, of the whole national AAC industry. In this context, it is possible to exploit the potential of patent analysis in order to shed some light on whether the transfer of patents between firms headquartered in different countries has been beneficial to the knowledge-recipient country or not (and, eventually, to design and implement some countermeasures)

Abstract

Conventionally technology flows from the defence sector to commercial applications. But, now in the digital age, many a time, commercial technologies have found their applications in the defence sector as well. The technology flow now is in both directions. Therefore, there is a vast scope of the technology developer(s), even the start-ups to find its utility in the defence sector. India has the third largest military in the world. However, India till now is the largest importer of defence equipment and systems. In the last decade, India has imported more than 10% of the total armament systems exported in the world. To reverse the trend, India has initiated ‘Make in India’ approach in all sectors and more so in the defence sector. The aim is to become the net exporter of armament-related systems within the next 10 years. In order to fulfil this dream, many policy changes have been initiated. Big thrust is given to bring SMEs in the defence sector. A new IDDM (Indigenously Design, Developed and Manufactured) category is added in defence purchase manual which is given the first priority for purchase. Make I and Make II categories are also part of the same where companies are encouraged to find Technology Partner and developed proto-type as per requirement of Indian armed forces. In all major purchases of more than 300 million USD worth, off-set clause is made mandatory, wherein the supplier is contractually obliged to buy/ manufacture minimum of 30% worth of the items from within India. Commercial aerospace is also growing fast. India is poised to be the third largest aviation market in next seven years after USA and China. All airlines put together today India flies about 550 aircraft. Against that more than 1200 aircraft are on order, which will increase aircraft strength in Indian airspace three times. Many companies are showing interest in design and manufacturing of commercial aircraft and components. There is also a big thrust to build and modernise aviation infrastructure connecting tier 2 and tier 3 cities with air link. General aviation is yet to take off in India. There is a large scope for gyrocopters, micro light and small aircraft manufacturing in India. MRO of aircraft and components is yet another opportunity being explored by Indian industries. All these and much more exciting developments are taking place, which in the view of the author, will surely change the industrial scenario in India within the next five to seven years. The paper discusses all these initiatives taken by the Government. This offers new opportunities for technology developers to find investing partner for their technology, products, and services in India. The author is a Defence and Aerospace Consultant and is associated with many industries of India, Defence parks, incubation centres and technical institutes. Many investors are ready to invest in the right technology and create product/systems required by Indian Armed Forces. The paper can thus become the starting point for all persons attending the conference and also for the technology developers presenting their paper here in their hunt for investor(s) to develop utility proto-type and then set up manufacturing facilities for the same.

Abstract

Experimental investigation on forced convection heat transfer is applied to vehicles radiator filled with AL2O3 water nanofloid with different concentrations; 0.1%, 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and 2% by volume. The experiments are done for three cases, each case correspondsto different heat load, coolant flow rate and air flow rate to simulate the vehicle engine cooling system. Electrical variable heat source is used to simulate the vehicle engine at various loads relevant to the cooling system of Toyota Yaris 2007 (Engine size/cylinder = 1.3L/4, fuel: petrol, max output = 62 kW, engine speed for max output (rpm)). This engine is chosen because it has a relatively small engine with easier to simulate cooling system. Thermocouples and pressure transmitters are installed at different positions in the system to measure the instantaneous local temperature and pressure where it's connected with data accusation system and stored in the computer with 3 sec intervals (time steps). The coolant and air heat transfer coefficients, Nusselt numbers, heat rate lost by the coolant and absorbed by the air, heat exchanger effectiveness, overall heat transfer coefficients, Reynolds number, and the pumping power are calculated. Log mean temperature difference (LMTD) and effectiveness-number of transfer units (ε-NTU) are used to determine the outside air heat transfer coefficient. Results show gradual enhancement in the heat transfer with concentrations 0.1%, 0.5%, and 1% by volume (optimum obtained at 1% by volume); however, deterioration in heat transfer rate occurs at concentrations 1.5% and 2% by volume.

Abstract

The projected experimental work is for a design validation and hypothesis feasibility studies of first stage of Shivastra-I. The first stage of Shivastra-I consist of a propulsion system called as integrated rocket ramjet, and intermediate between solid rocket motor and solid fuel ramjet. This work involves a similar like air duct propulsion coupled with conventional of solid rocket motor. In this a duct alike system air intake from 3 diffusers are added into the exhaust product of conventional rocket system. This externally mixed atmospheric air flow is channelized into the combustion product at nozzle exit area section of the booster stage. This ducted rocket propulsion system is optimised for both: solid rocket motor and hybrid rocket engine. In this system the core engine exhaust is mechanically mixed with the stream of air is introduced from the bypass duct into the rocket exhaust. This bypass airflow flows down the side of the rocket motor where it encounters the narrower cross-sectional area to the flow passed. This restriction causes the bypass flow velocity to increase. Techniques of hyper mixing like vortex creator are utilized to enhance mixing object to flows. This mixing will reach completion inside a shorter tube. This additional tube length acting as an augmented tube becomes extremely hot. To deal with this high temperature phenolic liners and ceramic coating are used. This rocket augmented system is designed to be functioned at supersonic airspeeds at its burnout. The problem statements encountered in this projectare the air intake problems in diffuser and shock waves at inlet. Also Transient heat analysis and inhibitor calculation are performed. Tools and methods used to overcome the above stated problem are Ansys, CFX Ansys and the Performance prediction and estimation code were developed in MATLAB by the team itself. The added benefit of the projected rocket system in its booster phase is the increase added thrust, almost doubled, at low altitude.

Abstract

This paper aims to show how technological and engineering education and industrial development can be closely connected, as in the example of the aeronautical industry in Brazil. Social transformation is the process by which an individual alters the social status of their parents into a socially achieved status for themselves. The role of education as an agent or instrument of social change and social development is widely recognized today. Social change may take place – when humans need change.Patil (2012) bydiscussing social changeneeds in India, points out that (...) the role of education as an agent or instrument of social change and social development is widely recognized today. In this sense, Education has been chiefly instrumental in preparing the way for the development of science and technology and can be defined as a process which brings changes in the behavior of society. Engineering is an important activity in Brazil. Important examples and achievements of the Brazilian engineering are connected to the establishment of the Brazilian infra-structure, nonetheless innovations in deep sea production processes had the contribution of Petrobras and theBrazilianengineering. In the example of the Brazilian aeronautical industry, a success case, the first step to stablish a modern competitive industry was to invest in the formation of highly skilled engineers and technicians which was done with the creation of the Technological Institute of Aeronautics, an institution of higher education and advanced research with emphasis in aerospace science and technology maintained by the Brazilian Federal Government with the support of the Brazilian Air Force. It is located near Sao Paulo, Brazil. In the case of the aeronautical industry in Brazil, The Industry, the government and the University complemented each other to form the “triple helix”, which is necessary to an effective development of the engineering education in Brazil. According to Lall (1992), (…) of the larger emerging countries, Brazil has the biggest industrial sector, with an advanced technology in many areas of heavy industry”; still according to this same author, in case of Brazil and Mexico concerning the industrial efforts, these countries (…) are more inward-oriented, with large areas of high effective protection, but with export incentives to partially offset this bias.”

Abstract

This research investigated the relationship between restricted sleep and Heightened Emotional Activity (HEA) during normal flight operations, and whether sleep patterns influence the strength of HEA as a response to threats. Accident investigation reports continue to highlight the relationship between restricted sleep and poor safety outcomes. However, to date, we have a limited understanding of how sleep and HEA interact. A total of 302 sectors of normal airline flight operations were observed, and instances of HEA were recorded. Crews were asked about their sleep totals in the previous 24 and 48 hours. Chi-square analyses of 535 observed instances of HEA across 302 sectors of normal flight operations and sleep hours were undertaken. The analysis showed a significant relationship between the occurrence of HEA and recent sleep. The relationship between restricted sleep and HEA suggests that there may well be further implications with respect to operational safety.

Abstract

The international Italian-Canadian multidisciplinary project called “Morphing Architectures and Related Technologies for Wing Efficiency Improvement” was led at the ÉTS in Canada, in collaboration with other Canadian partners from Bombardier, Thales, IAR-NRC and Ècole Polytechnique, and with Italian partners from Alenia, CIRA, and University Federico II in Naples. In this project, a new morphing technology was used to change the shape of the upper surface composite skin of a transport aircraft wing-tip with the aim to improve its aerodynamic performances (drag reduction, increase in lift to drag ratio, flow transition delay). The upper surface skin of the morphing wing-tip was equipped with thirty-two piezoelectric kulite type pressure sensors; they were used to measure pressures, and thus, aerodynamic loads acting on the morphing wing-tip for different flight cases expressed in terms of Mach numbers between 0.15 and 0.25, wing angles of attack between – 3 deg. and 3 deg., and aileron deflection angles between – 6 deg. and 6 deg. Therefore, optimal airfoils shapes were designed for almost 100 flight cases. Four actuators were used to obtain the morphed optimized wing-tip shapes. The optimal shapes for aerodynamic performances increase were obtained using aero-structural design studies. The flow transition point position for each optimal shape was evaluated experimentally using the infra-red thermography. The designed optimal shapes of the wing-tip were validated using various controller techniques that were applied during wind tunnel tests at the IAR-NRC. The experimentally results were found to be promising for all flow cases tested in the wind tunnel during this project, therefore the morphing wing technology was found to be feasible.

Abstract

Wings aviation school, Brazil The importance of the aeronautical scientist in contemporary society. What drives people to turn their lives into intense years of study and dedication, a life for a goal? Flying ... Give wings to your own dreams and give everyone the opportunity to get around the air quickly, safely and comfortably. Create the impossible, shorten the time of the displacement in space. The challenge of compiling all the exact sciences so that we can bridge the barriers and distances between people and their needs. This is the fuel that feeds the minds of the most dedicated experts around the world. This desire to overcome gravity makes the aeronautical scientist an individual with singular characteristics in his ways of observing all the phenomena of physics. Time, however, opens gaps in which all technology intersects through those people who transcend their cultural barriers by tirelessly pursuing the same goal, be it innovation or an enhancement of some existing technology. Aeronautical Scientists in turn do not measure the efforts, but the result. Aeronautical scientists are responsible and accountable for most innovation technologies in all sectors and segments, whether technological, such as the automotive, naval, telecommunications and war industries or even in human and social sciences such as medicine, nutrition and tourism. Everything on a scale even reduced has its beginning or improvement through professionals who transform their lives into pure learning, hoping to develop something new, better, unique. In the infinite will to break the laws of gravity by using the laws of aerodynamics.

Abstract

1. Air Launched Missiles (ALMs) are crucial and expensive assets for any country. They are indicative of the war waging potential of the nation. These assets are generally procured and kept in explosive warehouses for their life time, for meeting any contingency requirements and are rarely used even for training purposes because of their high costs. Quite often these weapons are assigned conservative life by the manufacturers due to reasons of their design complexities as well as for commercial reasons. They are required to be highly reliable to deliver their stated performance when called for. It is not easy to discard these weapons on completion of their life which is generally around 10 years or so, owing to their prohibitive cost and constraints in their procurement. Therefore every user always looks for a feasibility to use these assets beyond their specified life through life extension. However at the same time it is of utmost importance that the life extended weapon is safe to use and meets the desired performance criteria. It should also meet the airworthiness requirement given by regulatory bodies. This calls for evolving a proper methodology for carrying out life extension of these missiles. 2. In broad terms, the major sub assemblies of an ALM are Safety & Arming Mechanism, Thermal Batteries, Rocket Motor, Warhead, Gas Generators, Homing Head and the control surfaces. Though it is possible to test most of the sub assemblies at the specified test benches, very often the bench mark values from which the parameters are required to be compared are not available. In absence of the reference values it becomes difficult to predict the safe and satisfactory performance of the weapon though every sub assembly may appear serviceable during testing. Cases have been reported where a life extended missile failed to leave the launcher, when loaded and activated on aircraft, thus putting the parent aircraft itself in an emergency situation. 3. Therefore it is mandatorily required to study all aspects of the subject carefully, carry out necessary testing and develop a methodology for life extension of the weapon. The subject study starts right from analyzing the usage record of the missile viz., how many hours it was carried on a weapon platform, time period for which it was energized during its life time, number of landings carried out with the article on board, storage conditions specifically those of temperature and humidity and record of its periodic testings on the specified test facility during its life time. However, once the analysis is done it is feasible to extend the life by a quantum which is equal to the original stipulated life or may be even more, and hence, in the long run it saves huge expenditure and effort which otherwise would have gone in procurement of similar weapons. 4. The proposed paper ‘Life Extension Methodology for Air Launched Missiles’, will address all issues on the subject in detail with information collected from theoretical as well as practical studies carried out in this area and will make an attempt to lay down a standard methodology/template which will be applicable for carrying out life extension of various types/origins of Air Launched Missiles.

Abstract

Most developing countries are looking for possible ways to transfer technology. Aerospace industry is one of the sectors that can contribute in breaking the barriers of technology and hence upgrading the technological level of those countries. This idea was exactly behind a research project funded by the Libyan Authority for Research and Technology. It deals with a full plan to design and build a two-seat trainer aircraft locally. Only the first stage of design (conceptual design, and partially the preliminary design) were considered and covered in a paper published previously. In this paper the emphases is put on the requirements of manufacturing and certification. This part represents the most challenging requirement of the proposed aircraft development project. The main requirements of building the aircraft such as manufacturing workshops, manpower specialization and man power build up with time are presented and discussed. Manufacturing and testing requirements were presented too. Requirements of certification were also discussed and presented. Flight test procedures were introduced. Suggestions for international regulations to be applied to make sure that the performance of the designed aircraft meets the international certification requirements were introduced. Other aspects related to the levels of the responsibility and overall management of the project were also introduced. Reference to the most recent quality control techniques was also discussed. At last, the research team tried to present a full comprehensive plane ready to implement, for producing the trainer aircraft locally. However, solutions suggested may not be unique and they are open for discussion and amendment. Even though, there is a strong believe that this is the first time were such full design and development plane is introduced in one piece of research.

Abstract

The development of Computational Wind Engineering (CWE) from obscurity in the past to a well-established field today has been no small feat. The pioneering works from various authors have contributed to the progression of this field, however the cases that have been studied so far are limited. The insufficient complexity of the studied geometries means that CWE application to actual practical urban environments are limited and insufficiently represented. Therefore, a study into the various aspects of simulating a dense complex urban environment is much needed and will be one of the primary objectives of this project. The other objective is to translate the obtained data from Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) of the urban environment to a practical use case. The use case here is optimizing the path planning for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). Verification is first done a simple geometry to verify the solver which was deemed adequate before simulation of the complex environment was commenced. The results showed that overprediction was an issue in the complex environment. Inaccuracies in the results for the complex environment stem from the grid quality and the difficulty for convergence. The applied environment is simulated next and the critical data point, the Turbulent Kinetic Energy (TKE) is extracted and applied to determine the optimal drone path or response to the turbulent intensity in the region.

Abstract

Thrust Vector Control (TVC) or Thrust Vectoring is a technology that deflects the mean flow of an engine jet from the centerline in order to transfer some force to the desired axis, developing moment which is used to maneuver as well as for attitude change of the flight vehicle. A number of thrust vectoring concepts such as gimbaled engine, flexible nozzle joint or concept of jet vanes already exist, but all of them needs a bulky, complex and high-precision mechanism. Compare to the existing Thrust Vector Control (TVC) technologies, this new type of light weight nozzle technology is able to perform TVC with minimum mechanical effort and adequate performance. This light weight technology can reduce the weight of an aerospace vehicle by 5-10%, which has potential to result in 15-20% cost reduction of a mission. The project has vast field of application in all aerospace vehicles which demands higher maneuverability. Under the development of this project for subsonic regime, 3D designing was done in Fusion 360 and CFD analysis has been done in ANSYS Fluent and results were verified with experimental results. The innovative nozzle has shown more than 97% efficiency for TVC.

Abstract

Air transport is the fastest, efficient and safest mode of transportation worldwide. It plays an integral part in achieving economic growth and development globally. But to many in Third World countries, this mode of transportation is only associated with aircraft, pilots and airports leaving behind another important aspect, air traffic control. Air traffic control (ATC) is a service provided by ground-based air traffic controllers who direct aircraft on the ground and through controlled airspace, and can provide advisory services to aircraft in non-controlled airspace. Lack of proper career guidance and aviation education from elementary through tertiary education has led air traffic control to be an unfamiliar, neglected service or a “mysterious career” among many youths and people in general in many developing countries. It is therefore common to see many people confusing air traffic control with aircraft marshalling hence marshallers are often mistakenly regarded as air traffic controllers. Therefore, as people appreciate the beauty of air transport and enjoy boarding, viewing aircraft cruising, taking off, landing and taxiing, collective efforts by all stakeholders in the aviation industry should be made to publicize and elevate the status of air traffic control as a career in developing nations. Without that, air traffic control will still remain a mystery for generations to come in countries in question.

Abstract

The aim of this research is to develop a high pressure ratio and air mass flow rate centrifugal compressor, as well as compare it to existing NASA design. In this paper a design and analysis of 8:1 pressure ratio centrifugal compressor has been conducted. A centrifugal stage was designed by using CompAero design code for mean-line performance calculation, and ANSYS for 3D Computational Fluid Dynamic Analysis. Two new diffusers were designed, each with different vane geometry. The static-to-static pressure ratio over the radial diffuser was improved. Numerical computations were validated against the experimental data of NASA design. A Finite Element Analysis (FEA) was done on the optimized impeller geometry to ensure that failure would not occur during operation. According to CFD results, the final design delivered good performance at the design speed with regards to pressure ratio, efficiency, and stall margin. The mechanical stresses experienced during operation were also within limits. Keywords— Gas turbine engine, centrifugal compressor, impeller, diffuser, CFD, FEA

Abstract

The meaning of title might be quit interesting as well as quit interesting to all after reading. The term SDI I coined first time and freshly which is I hypothesis to showcase you what are the possibilities in future aerospace domain and how it would be take place, what is the turning point where aerospace of earth seems to be like alien technologies (Assumption). Now what I intended with this communication I would like to understand with intriguing model. Before to explaining model further I would like to define terms SDI as “Self-Dimensional Change Intelligence (SDI) is hybrid engineering of smart materials with additional Artificial Intelligence control to change geometrical dimensions/coordinates of aerospace craft”. Where as Smart Material can be define as “the range and verity of materials which sense physical/space/environmental stimuli itself and after sensation actuate themselves according to geometry controlled by AI, example conductive polymers, shape memory alloy (SMA). In above model I showed how this happen would be possible in near future with dividing model into two segments as Intelligent/Smart Materials and Artificial Intelligence with two parallel design lines Advanced Aerodynamics and craft engineering and Self-Dimensional Change Intelligence (SDI) Engineering. These two technologies need to cascade using these two design lines. The first segment based on genuine engineering of material science like Shape Memory Alloy (SMA), Photonic Crystals based materials, transitional semiconductors mix materials, conductive polymers coated materials etc. these materials not only sense and actuate but also has self-replication, self-healing mechanism engineer in them. This segment hence further distributed as Transfer Matrix Methods (TMM)/ Density Functional Theories and Martensite transformation of lattices (Stimuli sense and actuate/response) where materials growth according to nature means whether its photonics based or electronics based. To regularize, process, monitoring and triggering SDI second segment would be supportive named Artificial Intelligence which stabilize, channelize and precision control of stimuli’s on which materials sensation and actuation depend and how mach they need to transform from one to another form using SDI. This unit further has two important parts as Advanced Processor for SDI pattern generation, command, process and control with time and condition management and second Shape Change pattern Engineering/ Shape Geometry Commands to Aerospace body to generate and available SDI dimensional data to Advanced Processor for execution for example for high speed disc type aerospace craft which spinning has high velocity as compare to traditional line flying, for SDI Curvilinear or Cartesian or Cylindrical coordinates which fit best also take such decision and available to Processor. Keywords: SDI, SMA, Aerodynamics, Aerospace Engineering Acknowledgement I would like to credit this work to my loving wife Safeena Khan, my angels Md. Nameer Shaikh, Md. Shadaan Shaikh and my close friend Tanveer Sayyed.

Abstract

Resource selection (RS) is one of the prime phases of product design that have substantiating impact on the manufacturing of products. Material and manufacturing process selection are considered an important ingredient of RS and must be dealt with in early stages of design. Since, emerging technologies such as Additive Manufacturing (AM) have re-defined the potentials of manufacturing by re-orienting market drivers such as high part-complexity needs, individualization, shorter product development cycles, abundant materials and manufacturing processes, diverse streams of applications, etc., it is imperative to select the right compromise of materials, manufacturing processes and associated machines in early stages of design considering the Design for Additive Manufacturing guidelines. As several criteria, material attributes and process functionality requirements are involved for decision making in the industries today, an integrated design-oriented framework is discussed in this talk for RS in AM to structure design knowledge pertaining to each stage of design process; conceptual, embodiment and detail designs. However, more focus will be kept on the conceptual and embodiment design phases. The framework is aimed to act as a guideline for designers in the AM industry to provide design oriented and feasible material-machine-process combinations. A case study from the aerospace industry is used for validation of the proposed framework.

Abstract

Unmanned Vehicles, Drones, Self Driving Cars and other sorts of advanced autonomous vehicles are being announced on an almost daily basis. Uber is working on flying taxis, every car company has self-driving car in the works, and drones are the hottest Christmas toy for people of all ages. Inside these autonomous vehicles are systems based on advanced artificial intelligence, including artifical neural networks (ANN), machine learning, probabilistic reasoning, and monte-carlo models provding support for complex decision making. One of the major concerns about autonomous vehicles, be they flying or driving, is for safety. Safety testing is usually based around deterministic behavior – the aircraft or car or boat, when faced with a hazardous situation, behaves the same way every time. But what happens when the vehicle is learning from its environment, just as we humans do? Then it may behave differently each time based on experience. How then to predict in advance how safe an autonomous system might be, given this behavior? This paper will present three complementary approches to this problem. One is a stochastic model for predicting how an autonomous system might behave as it learns over time, providing a range of behavioral responses, to be used as a risk assessment tool. The second is a set of methods and standards for writing test procedures for such vehicles. The third is using a watchdog or safety observier process to guard the aircraft performance and to revert to a lower level of autonomy if safety goes out of bounds.
