Abstract

The development of innovative technologies is increasingly oriented towards electrification of vehicle propulsion systems expected to lead to: a reduction of harmful emissions, an increased efficiency of vehicles, improved performances, a reduction of fuel consumption, a reduction [...]

Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a system to collect product information from manufacturers and make it available in tools that are used for concurrent design of spacecraft. The planning of a spacecraft needs experts from different disciplines, like propulsion, power, and thermal. Since [...]

Abstract

lication of energy storage (ES) in power distribution systems (PDS) of short sea shipping marine vessels is gaining ground. The main drivers are the increasing demand for higher energy efficiency and the decreasing costs of battery ES systems (BESS). The feasible chemistry and dimensioning [...]

Abstract

This research focuses on identifying the most important stern shape aspects, with regard to resistance and propulsion power, of inland ships. Such information should help designers to determine which hull form aspect to adjust in case design requirements need them to do so. The information [...]
