The Research Group for Aircraft Systems was established in 2021 with funding from the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK), TU Wien and co-financing industrial partners within the framework of an endowed professorship at TU Wien.
The research group Aircraft Systems deals with the following topics:
- Integration of electric propulsion technologies: systems for hydrogen storage and processing (CGH2/LH2), fuel cells, accumulators, engines, transmissions, propulsors,
- Efficient thermal management and integration of thermal management systems into the airframe,
- Aerodynamics and aeroacoustic simulations of aircraft systems,
- Validation of numerical models based on tests with scaled components,
- Component optimisation and system integration, as well as
- Development of reduced-order models and corresponding software tools for use in aircraft concepts and system simulation environments.
