Aircraft Design and Systems Group (AERO)

Emphasis of AERO's work: Aircraft Design, Aircraft Systems, Flight Mechanics. AERO's aim is to guide research assistants to cooperative dissertations and to conduct projects in research, development and teaching. AERO brought 1.6  M€ to the university with finished projects. AERO guided projects worth 2.9 M€ together with it's partners.

Optimization in Preliminary Aircraft Design (OPerA)

Aircraft design parameters like aspect ratio, sweep, taper ratio, maximum lift coefficients, fuselage diameter ... are the engineer's choice. The best combination of design parameters leading to an optimum design can be found by formal optimization. OPerA applies genetic algorithms to aircraft preliminary design and preliminary aircraft cabin design.

Aircraft Design for Low Cost Ground Handling (ALOHA)

Investigation of conventional aircraft designs for Low Cost Airlines (LCA). For them, ground costs at airports have a high share among Direct Operating Costs (DOC). However, a reduction of ground costs can lead to increased depreciation, fuel or maintenance costs. Therefore, it is necessary to continue to consider cruise flight.

Green Freighter (GF)

Investigations of conventional and unconventional cargo aircraft configurations for an entry into service in 2025. Main focus: Environmentally friendly and economic aircraft operation. Aircraft preliminary sizing was done with HAW spread sheets. More in depth design, analysis and optimisation was done with PrADO (Preliminary Aircraft Design and Optimisation).
