Small Satellite Components

Small satellites like Cubesats have reaction wheels for attitude control. The group of students will look into an initial design of a reaction wheel having magnetic bearings. The objective is to investigate the limitations of reaction wheels having magnetic bearings, while meeting all other constraints and requirements.

Hydrogen for KLM Ground Operations

By 2030 KLM’s ground operations need to be zero emissions. KLM is therefore investing in battery electric vehicles, however those are not viable in all scenarios. We therefore need you to experiment with and research the impact of an alternative fuel platform on KLM’s ground operations: Hydrogen.

Blue Sky: Bio Based Electronics for Aerospace

Interdisciplinarity is needed to address aviation challenges of CO2 and NOx emissions and noise reduction. Electrical systems consist of heavy metallic conducting materials. Recent research showed that certain organic materials created by (micro)biology show electrical properties. How can we use these potentially lighter materials to save aircraft weight and emissions?

Recycling Of Thermoplastic Composites

The aerospace industry is moving towards weight-savings and sustainability by means of newer and smarter material systems such as composites. Thermoplastic composites (TPs) can re-melted and re-processed and thus, are conducive to innovative recycling approaches, which improves the sustainability value of TP material systems. The goal is to explore the state-of-the-art recycling routes and the most viable options, from a holistic perspective.

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Road Map

Embraer is investigating new propulsion systems. TU Delft dream team AeroDelft shares a similar vision: to prove and promote the feasibility of hydrogen as an alternative to conventional fuel. If a two seater aircraft could be a reality in the relatively close future, what are the next steps?

Hydrogen-Powered Flying V

Environmental sustainability is currently the biggest challenge to Aviation. The Flying-V design of the Aerospace Engineering Faculty promises a 20% reduction in energy consumption. Hydrogen is a serious alternative with zero CO2 emissions. Help us understand how different aspects of a hydrogen-powered Flying-V aircraft interact, and solve the problems at interfaces of technology, cost, industry, policy and operations.

Think Green in Hoogeveen

What can we do to make our factory more sustainable? We have machines that create heat and others that need heat. Some of our machines need nitrogen and in the news are the problems of too much nitrogen. We need clever solutions to become more sustainable whilst safely delivering top-quality products to our customers.

Encouraging Social Mobility Development

Sustainable mobility takes the needs of future generations into account and considers amongst others to sustain environmental, societal, and business development.” Let’s develop a new look through sustainable ideas alleviating livelihoods for the people in rural areas taking into account waste management improvements together with sustainability entrepreneurs and climate partners.
