Gezer, Rüştü Berk

© 2019 by German Aerospace Center (DLR). Published by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc.A model reference adaptive controller effective for systems under periodic disturbances is proposed. The disturbance on the system is assumed to be purely periodic. The parametrization of the adaptive controller uses single hidden layer neural network architecture. The basis functions of this parametrization are formed by elements of Fourier series. The adaptation is done by using a Lyapunov based weight update law which also uses the results of the FFT calculations of the estimated periodic disturbance on the system, as roots of the sigma modification. Proposed adaptation method vary from the adaptation mechanisms discussed in the literature in the following way. First, it takes the disturbance estimation from state-space to time domain, then it carries it to frequency domain. The effectiveness of the method against periodic disturbances is demonstrated through simulations.

All rights reserved.Due to its excellent insulation capability, usage of silica-phenolic charring ablator as nozzle liner is a common practice in solid rocket motor industry. During the design of a solid rocket motor employing silica-phenolic as nozzle liner, it is desired to conduct an accurate analysis yielding in-depth thermal response and recession characteristics. As the interior ballistics and nozzle recession rate mutually interact...

All rights reserved.During rocket/missile system design process, system design must be made in accordance with military standards, which have very strict rules. Product delivery dates usually are very rigid. Despite this, during conceptual design, requirements are often updated within the design process that requires the design to be updated frequently. It is essential to perform these steps as efficiently and quickly as possible. The pr...

Önen, Anıl Sami; Tekinalp, Ozan; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2015)
This thesis focuses on modeling, controller design, production and flight test of a VTOL unmanned air vehicle. The air vehicle that is designed and manufactured for this study has three propellers. A nonlinear mathematical model of the aircraft is developed. For this both numerical codes as well as wind tunnel tests have been carried out. A simulation code is then written in MATLAB/Simulink environment that describes the physical properties of the system in detail. After trimming the air vehicle at appropri...
Numerical Modeling of Hypersonic Air and Carbon Dioxide Flows in Thermochemical Non-Equilibrium with SU2-NEMO Solver
Çelik, Mutlu; Uğur, Ömür; Eyi, Sinan (2022-06-23)
Modeling of hypersonic aerothermodynamics in non-equilibrium flow is a challenging problem of aircraft design. Especially, prediction of atmospheric reentry and other planet’s entry heat loads are significant for aerospace vehicle design engineers. Therefore, accurate calculation of heat flux of leading edges and nose tips are the main concerns of thermal design engineers. The present study aims to simulate hypersonic entry conditions of Mars and Earth for the Mars Pathfinder experimental capsule with using...

© 2019, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA. All rights reserved.A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) study is conducted to investigate the unsteady, turbulent supersonic cavity flow characteristics and to control the severe effects of the flow field. Simulations of Mach 1.5 supersonic cavity flow with a length to depth ratio of 5.07 are performed using commercial ANSYS Fluent solver. Unsteady density-based Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations are modeled with standard k-ω turb...
