European-wide research flights focus on greenhouse gas methane

(0)
June 3, 2018

Effective monitoring of greenhouse gases is required to achieve ambitious targets for limiting greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, the sources and sinks of greenhouse gases must be understood as precisely as possible to produce reliable climate forecasts. From mid-May to mid-June 2018, a flight test campaign led by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für… Read More ›

i-VISION

Immersive Semantics-based Virtual Environments for the Design and Validation of Human-centred Aircraft Cockpits Aerospace industries aim at reducing product development times and cost but face a major obstacle, the need to build several physical prototypes for verifying various factors during design. Human factors considerations in the design process of aeronautic products play a crucial role… Read More ›

Next generation propulsion.

The turbo-jet gas turbine engine has been a feature of flight for long enough to be the normal experience of perhaps the majority of travellers. It has settled to a design concept that is reproduced by all the major manufacturers and made in substantial quantities. High by-pass ratio all jet engines power the great majority… Read More ›

Reduced Aircraft Mass

1. Reduced structural and payload weight Some of the ideas dealt with in other sections may have relevance here: the use of ground power augmentation (section 2.2) may serve to reduce engine thrust or the use of detachable or ground located undercarriages (section 4.1.3). However, the most effective approach to a better relationship between power,… Read More ›
