CFD Analysis on the Main-Rotor Blade of a Scale Helicopter Model using Overset Meshing (Mechanical Project)

In this paper, an analysis in computational uid dynamics (CFD) is presented on a helicopter scale model with focus on the main-rotor blades.The helicopter model is encapsulated in a background region and the ow eld is solved using Star CCM+. A surface and volume mesh continuum was generated that contained Continue reading

Interval Based Integer Ambiguity Resolution Using Multiple Antennas: Applied to airplane attitude determination (Mechanical Project)

Finding the correct integers is the key to high precision range measurements. This has been an issue of investigation since the early 1980’s and many different techniques have been developed, none of them can guarantee to resolve the correct integers in 100% of the Continue reading

Support System for Landing with an Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (Electronics Project)

There are a number of ongoing projects developing autonomous vehicles, both helicopters and airplanes. The purpose of this project is to study a concept for calculating the height and attitude of a helicopter. The system will be active during Continue reading
