Winglets@Airbus

RAeS lecture in cooperation with DGLR, HAW-Hamburg & VDI.
Lecture in English if requested.

 

Winglets, the small "wings" at the tip of aircraft wings, have long been of particular interest. Do they only offer a convenient area for the airline logo, or are there any other good reasons for equipping a aircraft with winglets? In fact, winglets have a global influence on the flow field and can thus make a significant contribution to reducing air resistance.

But how does a winglet work in detail? How can aerodynamic mechanisms be used to generate a noticeable effect on the aircraft system in a severely restricted parameter space? It also requires profound knowledge of various interactions with other disciplines.

Is the integration of winglets the real challenge? There are clear differences between retrofitting existing aircraft or a new design.

Finally, all solutions, along with their respective motivations, will be presented on the basis of the complete Airbus fleet.

RAeS lecture in cooperation with DGLR, HAW-Hamburg & VDI

 

Featuring one of the most voluminous cargo holds of any civil or military aircraft flying today, the Airbus Beluga plays a key role in keeping Airbus production and assembly network operating at full capacity. The current fleet of 5 Beluga, based on A300-600, carries complete sections of Airbus aircraft from different production sites around Europe to the final assembly lines in Toulouse, France and Hamburg, Germany.

To support the A350 XWB ramp-up and other production rate increases, Airbus will gradually replace its current Beluga’s with six BelugaXL aircraft, derived from the company’s versatile A330 widebody product line. Veronique Roca, Chief Engineer of the BelugaXL, will tell us about the BelugaXL since its launch in Nov 2014. With the First Flight in July 2018, the BelugaXL is now completing the Flight Test Campaign and will achieve certification in Q4 2019.

 

Veronique has been BelugaXL Technical Director & Chief Engineer since 2016.  As part of her mission she holds the Technical Authority to define and validate the target configuration of the aircraft, in line with operational and certification requirements, and meeting highest safety standards. Previously, Veronique was A330 Chief Engineer for France for two years.

RAeS lecture in cooperation with DGLR, HAW-Hamburg & VDI

Lecture in English

 

Describing the life of a Royal Air Force fighter pilot in the 1970s with a focus on the exciting job of chasing Soviet Tu-95 'Bear' long-range reconnaissance aircraft over the North Sea as they approached UK airspace.

In addition Nick will also talk shortly about his experiences flying the A340-600 and other Airbus aircraft

 

During a 19 year career in the RAF, Nick moved from the Phantom to the Hawk T1 trainer as an A1 fast jet Qualified Flying Instructor, then back to the Phantom to become a Qualified Weapons Instructor.  He then moved to Australia on an exchange tour flying the F/A 18 for the No 77 Sqn RAAF, and finally back to the UK to fly the Panavia F3 Tornado Air Defence Variant.

After obtaining his Air Transport Pilot’s Licence and leaving the military, Capt. Nick joined Virgin Atlantic Airways flying the Airbus A340-300, Airbus A340-600, and the Airbus A330-300 on long haul flights.

RAeS Lecture in cooperation with HAW-Hamburg, DGLR, VDI & ZAL

(Lecture in English. This lecture replaces the original planned lecture which has had to be postponed until 2021)

 

There is nothing more international than air, yet most histories of aviation take a very national view. In this talk a contrast will be drawn between such narrow approaches and the actual experience of aerospace engineers in Germany and Britain since the middle of the twentieth century.

The detailed exploration of V/STOL aircraft, the Tornado and Typhoon programmes and the evolution of Airbus will show the ways in which German thinking about aircraft, project management and collaboration have shaped the development of the British industry.

Although recent events may seem to challenge the future of British integration with the European aerospace industry, the talk will show that the interdependence will likely continue, and will briefly explore future prospects, such as FCAS (Future Combat Air System).

DGLR lecture in cooperation with HAW Hamburg, RAeS Hamburg, VDI & ZAL

 

So alt wie die Raumfahrt ist die Idee von Raumfahrzeugen mit Flügeln für die Rückkehr nach ihrer Mission ins All. Vereinzelte Entwürfe benötigen Flügel auch für den Start. Insgesamt sollte damit eine Wiederverwendbarkeit von Raumflugkörpern etabliert werden. Allerdings erreichten zahlreiche Konzepte nie die Einsatzreife, obwohl z.B. das deutsche Transportsystem "Sänger" durchaus zukunftsträchtig erschien. Erfolgreich war hingegen der 30 Jahre lange Einsatz der Space Shuttles der NASA von 1981 bis 2011 als Multifunktions-Raumtransporter, welche u.a. zum Aufbau der Internationalen Raumstation ISS genutzt wurden. Für neue staatliche und private Raumfahrtprogramme kommt derzeit (z.B. für die X-37B) und künftig (z.B. für den "Dream Chaser" und die XS-1) auch wieder Shuttle-Technologie zur Anwendung.

In 2019 EASA started work on a definition of a labeling system for the aviation industry. Work with students at HAW Hamburg lead to a definition of an Ecolabel for Aircraft already in 2017. The lecture reports on international progress with reporting and labeling schemes related to aircraft. The HAW Hamburg definition of an Ecolabel for Aircraft is explained, based on which commonly used passenger aircraft are evaluated. This leads to straight advice for travelers about what to observe when booking a flight in order to limit the environmental footprint.

More information about Rich Graham

 

The worlds fastest and highest flying aircraft was conceived as early as 1958 by the renowned aircraft engineer, Kelly Johnson. The gigantic leap in technology he and his engineers had to overcome at the Lockheed Skunk Works was phenomenal. Built in total secrecy, the first Blackbird flew on April 26, 1962. The Blackbirds only purpose was to gather highly classified intelligence on hostile countries around the world. Flying at Mach 3+ speeds and cruising at over 85,000 feet, the SR-71 could survey over 100,000 square miles every hour, gathering millions of bits of intelligence. When cruising at over 2,200 mph, with skin friction temperatures reaching 600 degrees F., the SR-71 performed at its very best.

Col. Richard Graham flew the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird from 1974-1981.

Vortrag auf Deutsch

Der Vortrag stellt den Flugversuch in den heutigen Kontext der Luftfahrt mit seinen Verknüpfungen zur Zulassung und Entwicklung des Luftfahrzeuges. Welche Anforderungen gibt es? Welche Vorgaben der EASA müssen beachtet werden. Was ist ein Entwicklungsbetrieb? Anhand von Beispielen aus der täglichen Arbeit wird die praktische Umsetzung der Flugversuche dargestellt. Zusammen mit den beteiligten Wissenschaftlern bereitet der Projekt- und Entwicklungsingenieurs die Flugversuche vor und übernimmt die Verantwortung für die strukturelle Implementierung der Flugversuchsinstallationen. Für einen sicheren Betrieb des Versuchsträgers bei sich ständig ändernden Versuchseinbauten ist die Konfigurationsdefinition und Konfigurationskontrolle unerlässlich.

Dipl.-Ing. Florian Antrack hat Flugzeugbau an der HAW Hamburg studiert und war von 2003 bis 2017 im Flugversuch des DLR tätig. In seinem Vortrag berichtet er über das Leben im Flugversuch. Exemplarisch werden verschiedene Flugversuchskampagnen des DLR und ihre Hintergründe dargestellt. Dabei wird auf die verschiedenen Versuchsträger eingegangen.

The dawn of the airship. John MurphyLecture in English

For a group of missions, airships can provide an answer to the goals set by Flightpath 2050 such as drastic emission reductions, safety, and cost reduction. Where slow and low flying as well as vertical take-off and landing are prerequisites, airships offer a tried and tested alternative with considerable fuel savings. The lecture is dedicated to the topic of eco-efficiency in aircraft design. Advantages of airships versus obstacles and boundary conditions in airship development are discussed.

Cosmology in Space

RAeS Lecture in cooperation with DGLR, HAW Hamburg, VDI & ZAL

 

An artist view of the Euclid Satellite – © ESADr. Markovic will introduce the current best picture we have of the history and constituents of our universe. She will describe the so-called Lambda-Cold-Dark-Matter cosmological model, which is supported most by evidence. She will also give an overview of some of the early ground-based observations as well as the space missions by ESA and NASA, which provided the evidence that speaks for this model. Finally, she will describe how we are submitting this model to more and more stringent tests using space telescopes like Euclid and Nancy Grace Roman.

 

 

Dr. Katarina (Dida) Markovic is a research scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. Her research in cosmology is to study apparent distortions in our maps of positions of distant galaxies, which contain information about the unknown components of the universe: dark energy and dark matter. She works on the preparations for the Euclid and the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescopes, which are to be launched in the 2020s. Before JPL, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation in the United Kingdom, after finishing her PhD in astrophysics at the LMU in Munich, Germany.
