    A comprehensive investigation of evolvability and design reuse in new and historical civil jet transport aircraft was undertaken. The main purpose was to characterise the techniques and strategies used by aircraft manufacturers to evolve their designs. Such knowledge is essential to devise improved design methods for promoting the evolvability of new aircraft. To perform the study, jet aircraft from

    This review provides a systematical description of the inverse heat transfer solutions applied to global heat-flux measurements using temperature-sensitive-coating techniques in hypersonic wind tunnels. The analytical inverse heat transfer solutions for a two-layer structure (typically a polymer sensor coating on a base) are focused to elucidate the effects of the relevant parameters including the

    The historical failure data of launched spacecraft are very useful to improve the designing and manufacturing of spacecraft, optimize ground tests and reduce the flight risks of spacecraft. In 2010, the study of spacecraft failure data was initiated in China. Since 2017, 2593 on-orbit failure data and 1298 ground failure data for 120 spacecraft launched from 2000 to 2017 have been identified and collected

  • Quantification of model uncertainty in RANS simulations: A review
    Prog. Aerosp. Sci. (IF 8.94) Pub Date : 2019-04-16
    Heng Xiao, Paola Cinnella

    In computational fluid dynamics simulations of industrial flows, models based on the Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) equations are expected to play an important role in decades to come. However, model uncertainties are still a major obstacle for the predictive capability of RANS simulations. This review examines both the parametric and structural uncertainties in turbulence models. We review

  • Research progress on ejector mode of rocket-based combined-cycle engines
    Prog. Aerosp. Sci. (IF 8.94) Pub Date : 2019-04-13
    Lei Shi, Guojun Zhao, Yiyan Yang, Da Gao, Fei Qin, Xianggeng Wei, Guoqiang He

    The Rocket-based Combined-cycle (RBCC) engine is regarded as one of the most efficient propulsion systems for reusable space transportation vehicles and hypersonic cruise vehicles. It can perform excellently over a very broad range of Mach numbers and flight altitudes through multi-mode operations by effectively integrating the high thrust-to-weight ratio of the rocket engine and the high specific

  • Hypersonic wavecatcher intakes and variable-geometry turbine based combined cycle engines
    Prog. Aerosp. Sci. (IF 8.94) Pub Date : 2019-03-16
    Feng-Yuan Zuo, Sannu Mölder

    A summary is presented of research progress in the design and technology of hypersonic air intakes and variable-geometry turbine based combined cycle (TBCC) intakes. Development of hypersonic intakes has passed through three geometry variations: 1) intakes with Prandtl-Meyer flow, terminating at planarly symmetric flat, oblique shocks and bounded by sidewalls, 2) the novel modular wavecatcher intakes

  • Ship-helo coupled airwake aerodynamics: A comprehensive review
    Prog. Aerosp. Sci. (IF 8.94) Pub Date : 2019-03-05
    S. Shukla, S.S. Sinha, S.N. Singh

    A comprehensive review of the computational and experimental studies for ship-helo coupled airwakes is presented. The review starts with a brief introduction on the essential flow physics of ship and helicopter airwakes. The discussion is directed towards the physics of coupled behaviour of ship-helo airwakes in detail. The emphasis is on different experimental techniques and computational approaches

  • A review of the scramjet experimental data base
    Prog. Aerosp. Sci. (IF 8.94) Pub Date : 2019-02-23
    R.K. Seleznev, S.T. Surzhikov, J.S. Shang

    The frontier in hypersonic flights via an air-breathing scramjet faces a formidable challenge, because the operational principle is built on thermal compression, which is inherently interwoven with complex and delicate balancing by aerodynamics and chemical kinetics interaction. In addition, the aerodynamic contraction ratio of the engine flow path varies significantly with flight speed, which must

    Progress in spaceflight research has led to the introduction of various manned and unmanned reusable space vehicle concepts, opening up uncharted opportunities for the newborn space transport industry. For future space transport operations to be technically and commercially viable, it is critical that an acceptable level of safety is provided, requiring the development of novel mission planning and

  • Applicability of empirical models of isentropic efficiency and mass flow rate of dynamic compressors to jet engines

    Bei Yang, Xiande Fang, Lisheng Zhang, Fengting Zhuang, Minghua Bi, Chuang Chen, Gen Li, Xi Wang

    The dynamic compressor is an essential component of a jet engine. For the jet engine, the empirical models of compressor isentropic efficiency and mass flow rate are needed for its control- and diagnostics-oriented dynamic simulation, and they are also more attractive than their theoretical counterparts in its design, analysis and performance simulation. This paper presents a comprehensive review on

    A Smart Dust is a propellantless femtosatellite, with a characteristic side length of a few millimeters and a high value of its area-to-mass ratio. It exploits the solar radiation pressure to create a propulsive acceleration sufficient enough to substantially affect its orbital dynamics. A number of new mission concepts may thus be envisaged, where the Smart Dust is either used as a single spacecraft

    Icephobic coatings for aircraft and other surfaces subjected to ice accretion have generated great interest in the past two decades, due to the advancement of nanomaterials, coating fabrication methods, biomimetics, and a more in-depth understanding of ice nucleation and ice adhesion. Icephobic coatings have demonstrated the ability to repel water droplets, delay ice nucleation and significantly reduce
