  • Konzeptionierung modularer Teilsysteme für den Neuaufbau der Parabelflug Siedeversuchsanlage

    Conceptual design of modular subsystems for the reconstruction of the parabolic flight boiling test rig

    2023/01/27

    At the Institute for Technical Thermodynamics, heat transfer in bubbles in microgravity is studied. For this purpose, boiling experiments were carried out in parabolic flights as part of the ESA-funded Multiscale Boiling project. At present, all components of the boiling test rig are individually connected to the main control system, which makes it difficult to keep track of them and thus to exchange assemblies easily and quickly. Currently, preparations are being made for the rebuilt of the boiling test rig. In the future, the various systems of the plant are to be modularly designed. The aim of this work is to create a concept for the modular design of the boiling test rig and to demonstrate this in practice using an example.

  • Simulationsbasierte Herleitung der operationellen Grenzen eines unbemannten Luftfahrzeugs abhängig von den Missionsbedingungen

    Simulation based derivation of the operational limits of an unmanned aerial vehicle depending on the mission constraints

    2023/01/25

    In view of the increasing use of unmanned aerial systems, research on suitable safety concepts for their operation is being conducted at the FSR. Based on the monitoring of the health status of individual components, it should be possible to reliably quantify the operational capability of unmanned aerial systems in the future. A simulation environment has already been set up for the institute's own hybrid aircraft SciHunter which represents the physical flight behavior as well as the flight controller.

  • Development and characterization of a fiber coupling system for mid-infrared free-space lasers

    Entwicklung und Charakterisierung eines Faserkopplungssystems für Freistrahllaser im mittleren Infrarotbereich

    2023/01/23

    Climate change and rising health concerns have led to increasingly strict regulatory emission standards for combustion engines over the past few years.

    In order to investigate the compliance with these regulations, special measurement techniques are required. Specifically, in the context of Real Driving Emissions (RDE), compact systems that allow for in situ measurement at engine tailpipe are necessary.

    Tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) is a measurement technique well suited for this task, as it allows simultaneous high speed in-situ measurement of a variety of gases. A large benefit of this technique is the application of small diode lasers which can be connected via glass-fibers and thus allowing for very small measurement devices outside the vehicles.

    The extension of the regulatory requirements made the implementation of new free-space diode lasers necessary, which are not yet fiber-coupled and thus cannot be connected to existing hardware.

    The goal of this work is the development and application of a fiber-coupling system for these free space mid-infrared diode lasers.

  • Evaluation of the soot particle size distribution in a model aero engine combustor using Large Eddy Simulations

    at the institute for Simulation of Reactive Thermo-Fluid Systems (STFS)

    2022/11/30

    Numerical simulations of aero-engine combustors are extremely challenging due to the complex multiscale and multi-physics phenomena involved. Currently, reliable modeling and prediction of soot particle formation produced during incomplete hydrocarbon combustion is one of the major issues in combustion research. The next generation of gas turbines for more sustainable aircraft engines must meet strict limitations for soot particle mass and size distribution. Therefore, a comprehensive understanding of the processes leading to soot particle formation and its precise prediction in practical combustion systems is crucial.

  • Investigation of the State of the Art of Automated Low Speed Functions

    2022/11/06

    In the project UNICARagil a modular architecture for automated vehicles was researched and developed. As a fallback level for the automated driving function the system “Safe Hault” was developed which uses redundant environmental sensors. In the succeeding project AUTOtech.agil these environmental sensors should be used for further functions of automated driving in low speed applications (e.g. automated Valet Parking, automated charging). As a basis for the development of these automated low speed functions in this Bachelorthesis an investigation of the state of the art of already existing automated low speed functions should be done.

    At the transonic compressor test rig (TSV1), a 1.5-stage transonic compressor stage with a so-called “cantilevered” stator will be investigated as part of a future research project. The focus of the project is primarily on the identification and quantification of secondary flow phenomena close to the hub, such as corner separation. In order to be able to observe these phenomena in a time-resolved manner, a fast response total pressure comb was built. This is equipped at its 8 radial measuring positions with so called Kulite sensors, which allow a sampling rate of up to 500 kHz.

  • Development of a methodology to determine equivalence of scenarios in automated driving

    2022/10/24

    At the Institute of Automotive Engineering at TU Darmstadt (FZD), research is being conducted into methods that enable highly automated driving. As a fundamental proof of safety, testing based on traffic data is necessary. To cope with the number of tests, it is necessary to test only scenarios that are not equivalent to already tested scenarios.

    To achieve this, criteria must be defined that determine the equivalence between scenarios. Furthermore, new metrics have to be developed that can quantitatively represent these criteria.

    The goal of this work is to derive equivalence criteria for the investigated use case, to realize them in executable metrics. Finally, the metrics are to be verified using existing test data.

  • Design and commissioning of a metal particle ignition reactor for iron particle ignition experiments

    Konstruktion und Inbetriebnahme eines Metallteilchen-Zündreaktors für Experimente zur Zündung von Eisenpartikeln

    2022/10/19

    The project Clean Circles is dedicated to solving global energy problems by using iron as CO2-free, renewable and efficient chemical energy carrier. First, electricity from renewables is used to reduce iron oxide (energy storage). Then, the iron is oxidized to release thermal energy for electricity generation at a different place and time (energy release). In the collaborative research project, scientists and students from different Universities work closely on numerous experiments and simulations.

    In this student work, a new metal particle ignition reactor (MPIR) with well-defined boundary conditions should be designed and tested for single iron particle experiments. MPIR will include three modules: electrostatic-based single particle generator, an optically accessible ignition channel, and an external heating system by an annular gas flame. The concept of MPIR originates from the so-called micro-flow reactor (see Fig. 1), which has been successfully applied for gaseous and liquid fuel ignition studies. The advantage of this setup is to study the ignition/reaction kinetic by converting the trainsient process to a space-dependent process. Within this work, this concept should be realized for metal fuel ignition measurements.

    The topic is suitable for ADP, Bachelor and Master theses, and the work tasks are adapted accordingly.

  • Large Eddy Simulation of Turbulent Solid Fuel Combustion

    2022/08/17

    The transition of the energy sector to renewable sources is a major building block of global strategies to combat climate change. Pulverized biomass, e.g. ground walnut shells or wood, can be a component in this transition. Burned in retrofitted coal power stations, biomass can replace some of the base energy production supplied by coal. For the stable and efficient operation of biomass power stations enhanced knowledge of the underlying processes is needed.

  • Development of a Toolbox for Evaluation of Pointclouds

    2022/07/14

    The VIVALDI project is concerned with the evaluation and validation of sensor system models, i.e. for modeling radar and lidar sensors.

    Recently, validation is attempted on multiple levels of the processing chain. Single detections in pointclouds are a common interface representation for radar and lidar sensor systems and corresponding models. Evaluating two different pointclouds of the same sensor is challenging since many different metrics are available. Therefore, this work aims at implementing a toolbox capable of applying different metrics on pointcloud level. Objective is the simple application and comparison of multiple metrics.

  • Ermittlung thermoakustischer Quellterme mittels numerischer Methoden

    Identification of thermoacoustic source terms using numerical methods

    2022/07/13

    Complex physical processes and interactions in a combustion chamber can lead to com- bustion instabilities that can cause lasting damage to aero-engines. Predicting these instabilities using numerical simulations is therefore an active field of research. One method for predicting unstable operating points uses acoustic analogies such as the Acoustic Perturbation Equations (APE), which use acoustically filtered, linearized Na- vier-Stokes equations to reproduce the propagation of acoustic waves. While the gen- eral, homogeneous formulation of APE includes the mean flow state in a system, source terms can be used to include instantaneous changes from flow simulations.

  • Development of a Toolbox for Evaluation of Object Lists

    2022/07/11

    The VIVALDI project is concerned with the evaluation and validation of sensor system models, i.e. for modeling radar and lidar sensors. Recently, validation is attempted on multiple levels of the processing chain. Object lists are a common interface representation for perception systems and corresponding models. Evaluating these with respect to given reference data is challenging since many different metrics are available. Therefore, this work aims at implementing a toolbox capable of applying different metrics on object list level. Objective is the simple application and comparison of multiple metrics.

  • Erweiterung einer Simulation zu Rotorabstürzen

    am Institut für Mechatronische Systeme im Maschinenbau

    2022/04/11

    Schwungmassenspeicher dienen der Speicherung von Energie. Zur Reduktion der Reibung wird in der Regel ein Magnetlager (AMB) eingesetzt. Im Fall einer Fehlfunktion soll eine mechanische Lagerung, die sogenannten Fanglager, ein sicheres Auslaufen des Rotors gewährleisten. Um die radialen Kräfte auf die Einbauten im Kohlefaserrotor zu reduzieren, sind diese Segmentiert, wodurch es zwischen den Segmenten zu Absätzen kommt. Ziel der Arbeit ist es, dies in Simulationen abzubilden und deren Einfluss zu analysieren.

The fan test rig will be equipped with state-of-the-art measurement technology, automated control and DAQ programs as well as individual solutions. All this leads to an extensive measurement campaign aiming at understanding and solving the vibration problems of modern propulsion components of conventional and electric drives.
