ABOUT THE BOOK

This book presents results from a major European research project—Value Improvement
through a Virtual Aeronautical Collaborative Enterprise (VIVACE)—on the collaborative civil
aeronautical enterprise. The VIVACE project spanned four years and included 63 partners Progress in
Advances in Collaborative
from multinational companies from 11 European Union countries.
The aim of VIVACE was to enable the Virtual Product concept in a collaborative environment
through design, simulation, and integration, starting from the early phases of aircraft

conception. In this context the Virtual Product refers to all components that comprise an
aircraft—the structure, the systems, and the engines. The project contributes to the following
strategic objectives derived from the report “European Aeronautics: A Vision for 2020”:

from whole aircraft and engine to single component optimization. Final chapters focus on
engineering data management, product life cycle management, security, and automated
workflows. Inspired and verified by real industrial use cases, the innovative methods and
infrastructure solutions contained in this book present a radical step forward toward the
advancement, industrialization, and standardization of the MDO concept. Researchers and
practitioners in the field of complex systems design will benefit from the extensive research
presented in this important book.

ABOUT THE EDITORS


Ernst Kesseler has nearly thirty years of experience in the aerospace domain, including
real time simulation, embedded software (heading a dedicated department for eight
years), human machine interface, certifiable safe software (including a PhD), and recently in
multidisciplinary design. This book reflects results related to these latter activities. His work
has covered aircraft (both fixed wing and rotorcraft), air traffic management, and satellites.
He currently owns his own company.
Marin D. Guenov holds the Chair in Engineering Design at Cranfield University and heads
the Advanced Engineering Design Group in the Aerospace Department. He has taken a
leading role in a number of national and international research projects supported by the
British and European aerospace industry, including the design of complex systems, modeling
and simulation, multidisciplinary design analysis and optimization, and infrastructures for
collaborative design. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, a Member of
the Royal Aeronautical Society and a Senior Member of the American Institute of Aeronautics
and Astronautics, and is a Chartered Engineer.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics,


Flow control technologies have been used in the past century to control fluid flows. This
text presents the current state-of-the art in emerging modern flow control technologies
and highlights the application of these technologies to aerospace platforms.

and Daniel N. Miller, Lockheed Martin


Initial chapters introduce the fundamentals of modern flow control, including basic
concepts, terminology, history, flow physics, actuators, sensors, modeling/simulation,

Vol. 228
and instability and control theories. Applications of flow control to current and next-
generation air vehicle systems, including fixed wing airfoils, turbomachinery, combustion,
aeroacoustics, vehicle propulsion integration, and rotorcraft are discussed. This text is an
excellent introduction to the wide-ranging uses of modern flow control.

This book offers gas turbine users and manufacturers a valuable
resource to help them sort through issues associated with
combustion instabilities. In the last ten years, substantial efforts
have been made in the industrial, governmental, and academic
communities to understand the unique issues associated with
combustion instabilities in low-emission gas turbines. The
objective of this book is to compile these results into a series
of chapters that address the various facets of the problem. The
Case Studies section speaks to specific manufacturer and user
experiences with combustion instabilities in the development
stage and in fielded turbine engines. The book then goes on
to examine The Fundamental Mechanisms, The Combustor
Modeling, and Control Approaches.
