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 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).

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.

Focussing on passenger satisfaction and remaining responsive to shifts in passenger preferences and requirements is key to the design of future cabins.  Awareness of the environmental impacts of aviation and the need to mitigate these effects through enhancements to operations and aircraft design has arguably never been greater. The nature of these challenges has been made even more complex by the ongoing disruption caused by COVID-19.

 

New technologies are likely to play a key role in helping overcome these barriers, and we are already seeing exciting innovations in areas including in-flight passenger wellbeing, sustainability and personalisation.

This presentation examines the role of emerging technology in the future aircraft cabin, examining onboard needs and requirements from a passenger’s perspective to better understand the capabilities and potential applications of various current and future aircraft cabin technologies. Cranfield University is inviting debate on the pros and cons of the resulting intelligent cabin proposals.

 

Dr. Thomas Budd is a Lecturer in Airport Planning and Management in the Centre for Air Transport Management at Cranfield University, UK, and Course Director for the MSc in Airport Planning and Management. His research and teaching activities focus on issues of air transport environmental sustainability and resilience planning, and how disruptive technologies can be leveraged to facilitate safe, seamless and sustainable journeys.

 

Dr. Craig Lawson is a Senior Lecturer in Airframe Systems Design, and Aircraft Performance. He also supervises design and research projects in the field of Aircraft Systems at Masters and PhD level. Craig manages research in these fields including for EU funded Clean Sky and Future Cabin for the Asian Market projects. He has published more than 60 research papers.

Greening civil aviation is key to our global future. It is imperative to succeed without the vast economic and social damage that would follow constraining aircraft demand and operations.  So radical aircraft propulsion technologies must be developed urgently.  Most likely to succeed in this grand challenge (promising full decarbonisation) are hydrogen (H2) and electrification.  H2 is an inevitable solution for a fully sustainable aviation future, via hybrid/fuel cell technologies for short to medium range and H2 combustion in gas turbines for longer missions. This presentation will provide an overview of the ongoing EU H2020 “ENABLing CryogEnic Hydrogen-Based CO2-free Air Transport” (ENABLEH2) project being coordinated by Cranfield University. The case for LH2 for civil aviation will be discussed followed by the strategic importance and overall scope of ENABLEH2. A summary of the key achievements to date will presented for the ENABLEH2 research on:

  • Ultra-low NOx hydrogen micromix combustion
  • Fuel system heat management – to exploit the formidable heat sink potential of LH2
  • Safety
  • LH2 Aircraft “Technology Evaluation”        

The presentation will conclude with an overview of twelve key research technology strands (identified as part of a preliminary roadmapping exercise in ENABLEH2) that are necessary for accelerating the entry-into-service of LH2 aircraft to realise the environmental benefits as soon as possible.

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

 

A seaplane gives the ultimate freedom of flight with theoretically endless take-off and alighting possibilities

along the coast, on lakes and rivers – and not to forget on the open seas. The design of seaplanes is based on

the knowledge of aircraft design and speedboat design. The craft must meet buoyancy and lift requirements.

Hydrostatic and -dynamic stability has to be matched with the longitudinal and lateral static and dynamic

stability in the air. The structure has to withstand water and air loads. Crucial are hydrodynamic resistance at

take-off as well as the lift-to-drag ratio in flight and particularly the water loads in defined sea states.

Sea plane design has a glorious past, but much of the knowledge is buried in dusty archives. It is even worse if

knowledge is lost forever and needs to be reinvented.

Lecture in English

We are hopefully coming to the end of the coronavirus pandemic and are approaching a summer with a holiday perspective including air travel. As such, it is time to present a wrap-up of the discussion from the last 15 month. The lecture starts with a brief explanation of passenger aircraft air conditioning systems. This is followed by an introduction to aircraft cabin ventilation theory. Seven legends are famous; three of them have been used extensively by the aviation industry. With an aeronautical sciences perspective, we try to find out how much truth is in these seven legends. More details on the second page of this PDF poster.

Sustainability is a concept which is increasing more and more in importance in the public awareness. Extreme weather events seem to be becoming more frequent and global warming and climate change are of increasing concern. The aviation industry as a producer of greenhouse gases is therefore committed to address these issues and reduce its impact through a variety of measures.

 

This will be a panel discussion between four experts in their field. Each panellist will give a 10-15 minute presentation on their topic. It will be followed by a moderated discussion and finally by a Q&A session with the audience.

Lecture in German

Die Europäer bauten zu Beginn des neuen Millenniums das größte Verkehrsflugzeug der Welt für bis zu 853 Fluggäste. Das erste Flugzeug der Welt mit zwei Decks über die volle Rumpflänge. Eine Herausforderung für die Konstrukteure, aber auch für Betreiber und Flughäfen.

Passagiere liebten die A380 von Anfang an, doch wirtschaftlich erwies sie sich als wenig erfolgreich. Die Produktion der A380 wurde bereits 2021 wieder eingestellt. Ein technischer Rückblick auf eines der wichtigsten Projekte der zivilen Luftfahrtgeschichte.

Der Vortrag wird gehalten aus Anlass des neuen Buches von Andreas Spaeth, das Anfang 2021 herausgegeben wurde. Im Rahmen des Vortrages werden Bilder aus dem Buch gezeigt.

Im Dezember wird in Hamburg die letzte Auslieferung eines Airbus A380 stattfinden. Aus diesem Anlass wollen wir noch einmal zurück schauen: Die Life Cycle Initiative im Umweltprogramm der Vereinten Nationen (UNEP) hat einen Leitfaden verfasst, der erklärt, wie man ein "Social Life Cycle Assessment" (S-LCA) von Produkten macht (siehe hier).

Im Rahmen einer Projektarbeit an der HAW Hamburg hat Frau Loth das Flugzeugprojekt Airbus A380 im Sinne einer S-LCA betrachtet. Welche Bedeutung hatte das Airbus A380 Programm für Europe, für Deutschland, für Hamburg, für den Flugzeughersteller Airbus, für Angestellte, Anwohner und für die Umwelt?

Um Antworten zu finden hat Frau Loth bei ihren Recherchen auch eine Reihe von Personen in Interviews befragt. Nicht zuletzt geht es im Vortrag um die Verlängerung der Landebahn am Airbus Standort Hamburg-Finkenwerder, hinein in das Gebiet des historischen Dorfes Neuenfelde – eine dramatische Auseinandersetzung.

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

Lecture in English

 

Today, air traffic is estimated to contribute between 3.5% and 5% to the anthropogenic forcing of climate change. Contrail cirrus, the cirrus clouds that form within the aircraft plume, account for the largest share of the aviation related forcing, larger than the forcing from aviation CO2 emissions.

Contrails form when the aircraft exhaust mixes with environmental air, and during this mixing the plume relative humidity increases so much that water saturation is exceeded. Contrail formation increases cirrus cloudiness and modifies the radiation budget of the earth. This change in the radiation budget can be estimated using climate models that include a representation of contrail cirrus processes. The impact of contrail cirrus on radiation is dependent on contrail cirrus optical properties and their life time or coverage. Properties and life times are controlled by microphysical processes such as ice formation, i.e. processes on the scale of a single ice crystal. Simulations can be compared to in-situ or remote sensing measurements and the sensitivity of simulated contrail cirrus properties and radiative forcing to emissions can be explored.

As clouds constitute the largest uncertainty in estimating overall anthropogenic climate change, the cloud processes associated with aviation, contrail cirrus and indirect aerosol effects, constitute the largest uncertainties from all aviation related climate change components.

 

Biography

After receiving her doctorate in Physics in 1997 from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Ulrike Burkhardt moved first to the University of Reading (UK) and in 2003 to the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen as a research fellow. Since 2006 her research focuses on cirrus clouds, natural cirrus and contrail cirrus, and their representation within climate models or higher resolving models. She studies the climate impact of contrail cirrus and the impact of different mitigation options.

Open Science, also der offene Zugang zu wissenschaftlichen Ergebnissen, ist eine politische Priorität der EU, die im aktuell anlaufenden Rahmenprogramm Horizon Europe umgesetzt werden soll. Die Erwartungen sind, dass Forschung damit dynamischer, transparenter und effizienter wird. Dies soll in allen Forschungsbereichen realisiert werden.

Open Science wird somit auch in der gemeinsamen europäischen Luftfahrtforschung ihren Einzug halten - eine der wichtigsten Quellen für Forschung und Innovation in diesem prestigeträchtigen und wirtschaftlich bedeutenden, international hart umkämpften Industriesektor. Es stellt sich die Frage: Ist diese Idee genial, da sie der Luftfahrt neuen Schwung, neue Technologien und neue Geschäftsmöglichkeiten bringen wird? Oder stellt es im Gegenteil ein geradezu wahnsinniges Unterfangen dar, das den technologischen Vorsprung und damit die ausgezeichnete, hart erkämpfte Position der europäischen Luftfahrtindustrie auf dem Weltmarkt gefährden wird? 

 

Martin Spieck ist seit 25 Jahren in der Luftfahrtforschung tätig. Der Vortrag stützt sich auf Ergebnisse aus dem EU-Projekt OSCAR, in dem Vor- und Nachteile von Open Science für die Luftfahrtforschung untersucht wurden.

Lecture in English

 

Unfortunately due to the indisposition of the lecturer we have had to postpone the original planned lecture to 28 April. However we are very grateful to Dr Tina Jurkat-Witschas who at short notice has agreed to talk to us about aspects of her research into contrails.

 

Contrail and cirrus that evolve from contrails represent the largest share of the climate impact from aviation, even larger than the contribution from CO2. In order to reduce this climate impact and the uncertainties related to it, the fundamental science of contrails and their impact on the atmosphere from a present and future aircraft fleet needs to be based on accurate and reliable airborne measurements.

Research at DLR has focused on the detection of contrails in a suite of measurement campaigns in the past decade. Different evolution stages of contrails from the first second behind the aircraft until they evolve into contrail cirrus have been measured with national and international partners like NASA and NRC. We present recent results on contrail properties measured with DLR’s unique research aircraft fleet. The observations are further used to guide model evaluation from the plume to the global scale.

While new carbon-free technologies like hydrogen powered engines now come into perspective, their impact on contrail formation is largely unknown. We will comment on the importance of airborne measurements of these new type of contrails, the challenges and potentials that come with it to frame a sustainable future air traffic.

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is optimised for making infrared observations in order to study the origin and evolution of galaxies, stars and planetary systems and is designed to look further back in space and time than the Hubble Space Telescope. It is a massive international project, decades in the making, involving NASA, the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency. 

The UK has a key role in leading a multi-national group that provides one of the 4 instruments on JWST with the lead scientist (Principal Investigator) based at the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh and the Project Manager (myself) based in what is now Airbus Defense and Space in Stevenage. 

This talk provides an overview of how JWST came to be, why it looks the way it does and a preview of what is to come when it begins science operations following its successful launch on Christmas Day 2021.

Lecture in English

 

Today, contrails contribute the largest share to the climate impact from aviation, even surpassing the warming by its carbon dioxide emissions. While CO2 has atmospheric lifetimes of about a century, contrails live only for few hours and thus provide a fast option to reduce the climate impact from aviation.

The current status of knowledge on aircraft emissions and contrails in light of results from recent aircraft campaigns and research activities will be presented. Operational and technological measures to reduce the climate impact from aviation will be discussed with a focus on contrail avoidance. A contrail avoidance test experiment has been performed during the CIRRUS-HL aircraft campaign in summer 2021. Results from the CIRRUS-HL include the assessment of the quality of weather and contrail forecast. The potential for flight routing for contrail avoidance or reducing contrail warming by a shift to daytime flight routes will be shown. The impact of technological measures, i.e. low aromatic fuels and new engines on emissions and climate will be presented and an outlook on future fuels will be given.

 

Biography

Christiane Voigt is also Professor for Atmospheric Physics at the University Mainz. Her research focuses on the aviation impact on atmospheric composition and climate. She coordinates aircraft campaigns on emission and contrail measurement in cooperation with international partners and combines the airborne experiments with modelling to investigate the potential of current and future technologies for sustainable aviation.

(Lecture in English)

 

Received wisdom is that in this age of digital engineering, wind tunnels are in decline. The imminent demise of the wind tunnel has been eagerly anticipated for over 50 years now … and yet they have stubbornly refused to die.  Indeed, the last 10 years have seen high-speed wind tunnels stage a remarkable comeback; new tunnels are being built, existing tunnels are being upgraded, and mothballed tunnels are being reactivated.   In this talk I will focus on industrial-scale transonic wind tunnels, discussing the historical development of these facilities and then reviewing their current and near-future status.

 

 

Doug Greenwell is a consultant specialising in applied aerodynamics, from wind engineering to high-speed flight. He gained his PhD in delta wing aerodynamics from Bath University in 1993, followed by a varied career spanning 35 years in academic, industrial, and government research and development.  He has extensive experience of industrial wind tunnel testing, ranging from low-speed building aerodynamics as Technical Director at RWDI, to transonic flight vehicle testing as Chief Aerodynamicist at ARA.

(Lecture in English)

 

The safe, responsible and at the same time economical recycling of commercial aircraft is one of the greatest challenges for the global aviation industry. Every year about 1000 airliners reach the end of their lives, which should not just be parked somewhere in the desert. A new aircraft dismantling industry is emerging. A lot is also happening in the recycling process.

 

Action at end-of-life: Decommissioning, careful disassembly and violent dismantling. After the aircraft has been dismantled, a distinction is made between reuse (recycling) or disposal, depending on the component or material in question.

For economic and ecological reasons, the aim is to achieve as high a percentage of reuse as possible (recycling rate). But

everything that cannot be reused must be disposed of. Landfill or incineration are two typical ways of disposal.

Annual Gerhard Sedlmayr Lecture

Lecture in English

City Airbus Next Gen. ©AirbusUrban Air Mobility is at the juncture where the ever growing societal need for efficient and sustainable transport meets new solutions provided by emerging technology. Progress in electrical propulsion is a key enabler to UAM, along with technologies for autonomous flight, or mobile connectivity that allows to provide all-new service offerings via the device of the user.

 

The lecture provides the rationale for this new and sustainable way of flying in cities and beyond. It describes the state of the art, and in particular Airbus’ positioning with CityAirbus NextGen and the various exploratory projects undertaken by the Group. In that sense, UAM is much broader than just a flying vehicle: it needs to be accepted by society and seamlessly integrated into our urban environments. It requires infrastructure on the ground, an adapted airspace management, and an efficient integration with complementary means of transport.

 

Furthermore, the introduction of a new means of transport requires that highest safety standards are met, building on the strong safety track record of the aviation industry. The new eVTOL architectures and the new mission profiles call for new approaches to safety of the vehicles in their operational environment. Therefore, the second part of the lecture provides an overview on Airbus’ approach to safety and particular aspects concerning the distributed electric propulsion system, flight controls and aerostructures.

 

Biography
Dr. Joerg P. Mueller leads the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) organisation at Airbus.  He is in charge of building UAM solutions with the objective of ultimately bringing a competitive offer to market.

Fliegen bringt unsere Welt näher zusammen und das ist gut so. Fliegen ist aber auch eine der klimaschädlichsten Arten des Reisens. Der Traum vom Fliegen hat sich für die Menschheit erfüllt. Nun muss auch der Traum vom klimaneutralen Fliegen wahr werden, ein „weiter so“ ist keine Option.

Diese Erkenntnis hat sich bei vielen Entscheidern durchgesetzt. In Forschung, Entwicklung und Industrie wird hervorragende Arbeit geleistet, um dieses Ziel zu erreichen. Die Branche selbst hat jedoch noch nicht alle Reflexe abgelegt, um Entwicklungen zu bremsen, die dem Wachstum des Luftverkehrs einen Dämpfer verleihen könnten. Dabei ist der Weg aus der Klimakrise bis auf weiteres nicht mit einer reinen Antriebs- oder Kraftstoffwende zu bewältigen, das gilt sowohl für

Verkehre am Boden, als auch in der Luft.

Studies in research often promise a fast system implementation and usage in operation. But especially in safety critical areas like air navigation services it can be recognized that it takes quite a long time from proclaimed "ready for use" at research level until actual operational use. Why this difference? Often, necessary aspects like safety assessment, certification, and training procedures for operators cannot be analyzed by the researcher. The validation under operational circumstances may lead to additional questions.

The presentation will demonstrate several challenges in the actual discussion about avoidance of persistent contrails. The German project D-KULT (Demonstrator klima- und umwelt- freundlicher Lufttransport, Juni 2022 bis Mai 2025) works on several solutions and its ideas are presented during the lecture.

 

Ralph Leemüller has accumulated knowledge from many years in the research and development division at DFS. He has experience in product management of air traffic simulators as well as management of complex systems in national and in international projects. Currently, he works on the evaluation of procedures to mitigate climate impact through air traffic management.

The current narrative surrounding aviation and its impact upon the environment is wholly negative. This presents a clear threat to the air transport industry and it has the potential to limit the growth that aviation needs for commercial success and the world needs in order to maintain economic growth and improved social wellbeing. 

 

At present, the international climate target is to keep global mean temperature rise below +2.0° C, relative to pre-industrial levels and the principal, but not the only, way of achieving this is by drastically and rapidly reducing anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases, notably CO2. Unfortunately, aviation produces a lot of CO2.

 

Whilst, in principle at least, there are some technical solutions available for the removal of carbon from the aircraft, e.g. sustainable aviation fuels and electric aircraft, all are high risk, high cost and, above all, long term. Even in the most optimistic scenario, global aviation will not be totally decarbonised by 2050. As a result, aviation continues to be heavily criticised by environmental groups and the prospect of future government imposed “demand management” is a real possibility. This would be a disaster for the industry.

 

However, aviation’s impact on the environment is not limited to CO2, nor is CO2 even the largest contributor. In this lecture, the broader environmental impact of aviation will be considered. It will be shown that the aviation’s overall climate impact is currently estimated to be twice that of its CO2 effect. This may sound bad, but there is good news and this relates to the impact of contrails and contrail induced cirrus cloud. It will be argued that “contrail management” is a major weapon in the fight against climate change. If it can be supported by the right government policies, it has the potential to make a real positive contribution and, in doing so, could change aviation’s narrative from negative to strongly positive.

Als 1990 das von der NASA und ESA gemeinsam betriebene Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in den Erdorbit gebracht wurde, begann eine völlig neue Ära der Weltraumforschung. Die jenseits der "störenden" Erdatmosphäre gewonnenen Bilder erweisen sich als außerordentlich scharf und detailliert, zumal das Teleskop durch Space-Shuttle-Missionen mehrfach modernisiert wurde. Die Astronomie erlangte zahlreiche neue Erkenntnisse über kosmische Objekte, Prozesse und Phänomene, die das Verständnis vom Weltall erheblich erweiterten. Ergänzend wird auf das Nachfolgeprojekt - das 2021 gestartete James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) - eingegangen, welches eine noch höhere Qualität der astronomischen Beobachtungen erzielt.

Lecture in English

 

From his own unique perspective, as the leading founder and a director of the Lilium Company, Daniel Wiegand will review the case for eVTOL Regional Aircraft, and the journey Lilium has taken from initial student ideas, to today's substantial company. He will overview and update on some of the progress made in technology development and demonstration, agreement of certification requirements, evolution of the design, and planning for entry into service of the Lilium series production aircraft.

 

Daniel Wiegand is the co-founder and first CEO, serving from 2015-2022, of Lilium, developer of the world’s first electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) jet. He came up with the innovative idea while studying for his Master’s in Aerospace Engineering at the Technical University of Munich and set out on his vision to develop a more accessible and sustainable regional air travel solution. Daniel led the creation of the complex architecture for the high-speed, zero operating emissions, low noise electric aircraft, with Ducted Electric Vectored Thrust (DEVT) technology at its core.?? He continues Lilium’s vision as Chief Engineer for Innovation and Future Programs and as a member of Lilium’s Board of Directors, to take Lilium even closer to reaching the goal of making sustainable and accessible high-speed, low noise regional air mobility a reality

Safe Landing (https://safe-landing.org) works internationally, but with a UK focus. It represents "climate concerned aviation professionals" including pilots, cabin crew, airport staff, engineers and factory operators and calls for early adoption of regulations to reduce emissions and a plan to support workers during any transition to secure their careers. Workers’ Assemblies follow the concept of deliberative democracy to advise on political and aviation company decisions. Most technical options (new aircraft and new fuels) for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from aviation have serious limitations. Hence, technology won't save us and cannot be an excuse to delay action. Nevertheless, some options are available now (!), but seem to be overlooked by industry, because they do not come handy: a) to fly lower (or higher) to reduce contrails, b) de-aromatization of fossil jet-fuel with hydrotreatment for both climate and health, c) to reduce air travel (with various measures). More information in poster.

 

Finlay Asher graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a Master in Mechanical Engineering (MEng). He spent seven years at Rolls-Royce working on aircraft engine design. Finlay runs now 'Safe Landing' which is a group of aviation workers campaigning for long-term employment. They do this by challenging industry leaders to conform with climate science and reject dangerous growth.

Why Safe Landing?

Aviation is heading for a crash landing. The projected growth of aviation is incompatible with safe levels of global warming – this needs to change, which means we’ll need to change how we fly.

Lecture in German

 

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.

Annual Gerhard Sedlmayr Lecture

Lecture in English. Please register here

 

For a long time, aviation did not give information security a high priority – until industry started to use commercial technology on board its aircraft. That was the turning point for starting the catch-up sprint. Ever since then a lot has been achieved, while cyber attacks are increasing in frequency and intensity. So far, safety has not yet been compromised, but a few “near misses” have already occurred. So we need to stay alert, agile and diligent to get in front of the power curve, so future attacks will face a resilient aviation, which can be attacked but not brought to its knees.

 

Biography

Jean-Paul has been involved in Cybersecurity since the mid 90s and joined EASA in November 2015, after more than 27 years – about 15 of which in a similar capacity – at Airbus. There he has been working on the ACMS and other avionic systems, helped develop and standardise Arinc communication protocols and the first information security-related concepts and principles. Later he joined Eurocae and RTCA, chairing WG-72, which is still developing standards for Aviation Cybersecurity, as the discipline is now mostly referred to. As early as 2011 he initiated one of the first requests to ICAO by Eurocae to address Cybersecurity. Today he is involved in related ICAO activities, chairing the Trust Framework Panel and participating in the Cybersecurity Panel. He has been instrumental in the development of the European regulations and associated AMC/GM regarding the “requirements for the management of information security risks with a potential impact on aviation safety”, nicknamed Part-IS, published in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

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

 

This lecture will describe the life of an RAF Phantom pilot in the 1970’s and centres on the exciting job of chasing Russian Tu-95 Bear long range reconnaissance aircraft over the North Sea as they approached UK airspace.

It starts with Nick entering the RAF as a student pilot, to leave 19 years later as a Flight Commander on Tornados.

He will also spend a little while describing his time as an Airbus A340 and A330 Captain.

 

Nick Anderson is a recently retired Captain for Virgin Atlantic Airways who previously served in the RAF and RAAF for 19 years. His father was an RAAF Sunderland pilot at Plymouth during WW2 and his mother a WAAF Operations Officer. He started off in the Air Training Corps, applied to the RAF aged 20 in 1974 and flew Phantoms for No43(F) Sqn at RAF Leuchars. He was also a Fast Jet A1 QFI at RAF Valley and a qualified Weapons Instructor on the Phantom. He became an exchange pilot with the RAAF on the F/A18 Hornet at RAAF Williamtown, New South Wales.

His career concluded as an F3 Tornado pilot and Flight Commander with 111(F) Sqn at RAF Leuchars.

He retired as a Squadron Leader in 1993 and was gainfully employed with Virgin Atlantic Airways on the Airbus A340-300, A340-600 and A330 from May 1994 until the end of May 2019. His retirement from professional flying has given him the time to podcast with the Airline Pilot Guy show!

Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), certified against a robust standard, ensures that its production does not negatively affect ecosystems and food security. "Book and Claim" is an in-sector decarbonization solution that allows airlines to purchase SAF without being geographically connected to a supply site. With "Book and Claim", the environmental benefits are "decoupled" from the physical product and can be transferred separately in the form of a credit or certificate. This approach has already been successfully implemented in the renewable electricity sector (see here) and is seen as an unmissable opportunity to accelerate decarbonization in hard-to-abate sectors such as aviation.

 

Prior to joining RSB, Max Eichelbaum studied Mechanical Engineering at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) finishing with a diploma. Max worked as an aviation stress engineer with Lufthansa and Airbus sizing lightweight composite airplane structures in Germany and France. He joined ESCP Business School to learn more about the energy sector, in particular sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs), and completed a postgraduate Master of Science in Energy Management. He then started his own online platform in Canada promoting sustainable flight and worked as an expert in SAF consultancy projects.

Im Zuge der dauerhaften und universellen Vernetzung sind auch im Ökosystem der Luftfahrt neben der Betriebssicherheit wesentliche Fragen der Vertraulichkeit, Verfügbarkeit und Integrität von Flugzeugen zu klären. Welche Bedeutung hat demnach die Informationssicherheit für Flugzeuge? Übergeordnet ist die Informationssicherheit in der Luftfahrt. Wie kommen wir von der Theorie zur Praxis?

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

 

Lecture in English

The Aeroshark riblet film imitates the shark skin effect and causes a noticeable drag reduction, which is equivalent to one percent of saved fuel based on a typical long-haul flight. This lecture gives insight into the development of Aeroshark for the Boeing 777 from an aerodynamic perspective.

Riblets reduce losses from interaction of microscopic vortices with the wall. This beneficial effect is integrated into the CFD model using extensions of the commercial solver Ansys CFX, which allows the investigation of large-scale models like an entire aircraft. The turbulence model modified for the riblet effect was verified by experimental results from DLR and DNW.

Many secondary effects became visible due to changes in the boundary layer thickness when the entire flight envelope was investigated. Hence, for certification, effects on flight characteristics, structural integrity and functionality of aircraft systems had to be considered.

Dedicated flight tests for aircraft stability and control were performed with special test programs, because here numerical tools usually show only low confidence. The enhanced fuel saving analysis is based on full flight data in contrast to single snap-shots as in standard aircraft performance monitoring. A problem is the uncertainty in total passenger mass due to the unknown mass of each individual passenger. However, an alternative approach for weight determination has been used, which is based on attitude sensors of the aircraft and reduces the uncertainty of the aircraft weight. This significantly improves the confidence of the drag analysis process.

F-35B. National Museum of the U.S. NavySystems Engineering is a diverse field both in terms of approaches but also in impact and exploitation. Working across 12 political systems, with over 700 aircraft operational worldwide, the F-35 is a 5th Generation military aircraft which delivers impact through data. Keeping all the software intensive systems flying, through obsolescence, repair, new technology and upgrade is a configuration and logistical challenge. In late 2019, the US F-35 Joint Project Office embraced agile software delivery to reduce software cycle times from 18 months to 6 weeks. This is the story of that time.

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

 

Lecture in English

 

With growing realisation of environmental issues and sustainability, we need to minimise reliance on fossil fuels. A “realistic” vision of aircraft development scenario for 2050 and beyond is imagined to be four-fold: Battery-Electric for very short ranges, Hybrid - Hydrogen Fuel cells for short ranges, Liquid Hydrogen (LH2) for the medium ranges, and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) for the longer ranges with Air-to-Air Refueling and Formation Flying.

For improving flight efficiency of airliners, ideas are towards increasing the wing aspect ratio to 14 and beyond, overcoming the adverse structural effects. Strut or Truss braced wings are being considered as in the NASA X-66. Another unconventional idea is to use flared folding wingtips that cope with gusts. Such ideas will be discussed.

Using LH2 fuel requires a great deal of unconventional thinking. LH2 being (a) cryogenic with low energy density and (b) potentially explosive, presents a challenge for designing a safe, efficient, and certifiable aircraft. The over-arching constraint is that the LH2 fuel system must be segregated from the passengers - no obstruction of exits and compliant with emergency landing requirements. Additionally, the airframe has to reasonably survive engine disc burst. This leads us to a pragmatic design of an unconventional medium range airliner concept “Gondola”. This features twin fuselages: one with passengers (160-180 seats) and the other with fuel tanks. Both fuselages are mounted on a “dry” wing of high aspect ratio.
