Lecture Series Monographs (VKI LS)

Lecture Series Monographs (VKI LS)

Lectures will be given by active specialists drawn from universities, research establishments and industries from all over the world. Extensive course notes are published as proceedings in the VKI Lecture Series Monographs. On regular basis, thematic volumes are published in the Selected Special Topics, assembling the best Lecture Series contributions over the previous years on a given subject.

    Review of the VKI Doctoral Research 2013-2014 - Free download

    €0.00

    The fifth symposium on the doctoral research of the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics took place during the period March 10 to 12, 2014. The doctoral students have presented the progress of their research work carried out in the three departments: Aeronautics and Aerospace, Environmental and Applied Fluid Dynamics, Turbomachinery and Propulsion. The first year students have presented a poster on their research plans and some preliminary results, while the most advanced students have proposed a presentation followed by a session of questions.

  4. Review of the VKI doctoral Research 2009-2010

    Review of the VKI Doctoral Research 2009-2010 - Free download

    €1.00

    These proceedings aim at giving a snapshot of the research done at the time of the Symposium. Its content is not reviewed by an editorial board and is the property and responsibility of the candidates and their supervisory teams. The idea is to encourage all candidates to write papers on their research even if this research is still under development or if the associated results are only partial. The goal is to train on communication at the best level possible and to offer a yearly compilation of the research accomplished at the Phd level. Learn More

    Recent developments in unmanned aircraft systems (UAS, including UAV and MAV) article pay-per-view 25€/article

    €0.00

    Although initially unmanned aerial vehicles were accepted only very slowly by the military, in the 1990’s they brought a real revolution in military operations. Presently they are considered as a standard tool in military thinking. Cross fertilization between defence forces and industry has paved the way to civil applications of UAVs. Being aware of this evolution, in collaboration with the RTO (NATO Research and Technology Organization,) VKI has organized in 1999 and 2003 two VKI-RTO Lecture Series on Unmanned Air Vehicles. Now UAVs have reached a high level of reliability, it is time to think of civil applications of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). This new denomination makes it clear that a UAS is more than only the flying component. The current Lecture Series proceedings include therefore contributions on all aspects dealing with the design, manufacturing, control and operating Unmanned Aerial Systems and its sensors.

    Plasma flow control: Fundamentals, modeling and applications article pay-per-view 25€/article

    €0.00

    Advances in aero-thermodynamics, aero-elasticity and aero-acoustics largely depend on the understanding of the flow structures, and the ability to control them. The first lecture note reviews the various approaches that are being followed for plasma flow control. The fundamental interaction mechanisms are presented together with the challenges associated to their implementation depending on the flow regime. A presentation on the mechanisms for the generation of momentum transfer using offset dielectric barrier discharges follows, focusing on the physics of the breakdown formation. The next lecture note addresses phenomenological models that can be used in conjunction with CFD codes, from simple algebraic equations to complex set of partial difference equations. The first part is concluded with the use of DBD actuators in various applications for internal and external flow control, over a range of Mach numbers from 0.1 to 3.5, in a wide static pressure range from 0.1 to 9 bar.

    Liquid fragmentation in high-speed flow article pay-per-view 25€/article

    €0.00

    Liquid injection into compressible crossflow has several interesting applications such as fuel injection in supersonic or hypersonic scramjet engines, thrust vector maneuvering of high speed aerial or space vehicles, and film cooling used in the thermal protection systems of space vehicles that experience atmospheric entry. The field involves many disciplines, and it is a complicated multi-phase flow field especially for compressible crossflow cases, with a unique flow topology including shock-shock and shock-boundary layer interactions. High aerodynamic shear forces, fragmentation, penetration and atomization of the liquid jet are important features that deserve detailed analyses.
