“Piezoaeroelastic energy harvesting based on an airfoil with double plunge degrees of freedom: modeling and numerical analysis” has been published in the Journal of Fluids and Structures. The work contains an investigation into a coupled nonlinear piezo-electro-aero-elastic model.
“Adaptive design of experiments for efficient and accurate estimation of aerodynamic loads” has been published in the Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology: An International Journal. The work is part of an on-going research collaboration with Noesis Solutions N.V aimed at validating new methodologies of machine learning.
“Gust load analysis using computational fluid dynamics derived reduced order models” has been published in the Journal of Fluids and Structures. The journal contains work Dr Da Ronch carried out during his Post-Doctoral time at the University of Liverpool, UK.
We have presented three research papers at the AIAA SciTech conference held in Grapevine, TX, during 9 to 13 January 2017. You can find the presentations here:
1) Analysis of Resolved Scales of Motion in Aeroelastic Problems, presented by Prof. M. Righi;
2) A Gust Reconstruction Framework Applied to a Nonlinear Reduced Order Model of a Wing Typical Section, presented by S. Simeone;
3) Extension of Analytical Indicial Aerodynamics to Generic Trapezoidal Wings in Subsonic Flow, presented by Dr A. Da Ronch.
“Energy Harvesting by Means of Flow-induced Vibrations on Aerospace Vehicles” has been published in Progress in Aerospace Sciences. The work was financially supported by the Royal Academy of Engineering (NCRP/1415/51) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (11402014 and 11572023).
“Computational Fluid Dynamics-based Transonic Flutter Suppression with Control Delay” has been published in the Journal of Fluids and Structures. The journal represents a successful example of collaboration with Prof Chen Gang of the State Key Laboratory for Strength and Vibration of Mechanical Structures, Xi’an Jiaotong University.
Dr Pascual Marqués and Dr Andrea Da Ronch have edited a new book, “Novel Concepts in Unmanned Aircraft Aerodynamics, Flight Stability, and Control“, published by Wiley-Blackwell. The book can be found on Amazon UK and may be purchased from December 2016.
