    • Learning curve: interpreting the results of four years of safety culture surveys 

      Kirwan, B.; Reader, T.; Parand, A.; Kennedy, R.; Bieder, C.; Balk, A. (Flight Safety Foundation, 2018-12)
      Safety culture is seen as a pillar of aviation safety and is a cornerstone in both the International Civil Aviation Organization’s and the European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA’s) safety management system (SMS) models. ...
    • NLR’s experience with flight testing on wet and flooded runways 

      Es, G.W.H. van; Koks, P. (Society of Flight Test Engineers, 2017-09)
      Braking performance of aircraft is affected whenever a runway is wet or flooded. Aircraft manufacturers do wet runway braking tests during the certification of a civil transport aircraft. These are normally limited to tests ...
    • The Risk Observatory: Developing an Aviation Safety Information Sharing Platform in Europe 

      Verstraeten, J.; Baren, G.B. van; Wever, R. (Macrothink Institute, 2016-12)
      In Europe the accident rate in commercial aviation has stagnated at around 40 accidents per ten million flights: forty times higher than Europe’s ambition. Currently safety management is done per organisation, focusing on ...
    • Soap bubbles for large-scale PIV in industrial wind tunnels 

      Engler Faleiros, D.; Tuinstra, Marthijn; van Rooijen, Bart D.; Scarano, F.; Sciacchitano, A. (Universität der Bundeswehr München, 2019)
      This work evaluates the use of helium-filled soap bubbles (HFSB) for Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements at high Reynolds numbers (up to 3.2 million) in aeronautics. The measurements are performed in the Low Speed ...
    • Stopping performance flight test on a flooded runway 

      Tump, R.S.; Mulder, T.J. (Society of Experimental Test Pilots, 2017-07)
      One of the identified solutions for runway excursions is the research into the “Impact of fluid contaminants of varying depth on aircraft stopping performance”. For this, NLR has carried out water-pond flight testing with ...
    • Wind tunnel flutter testing on a highly flexible wing for aeroelastic validation in the transonic regime within the HMAE1 project 

      Govers, Yves; Mai, Holger; Arnold, Juergen; Dillinger, Johannes K.S.; Pereira, Allan K.A.; Breviglieri Jr., Carlos; Takara, Edgard K.; Correa, Manoela S.; Mello, Olympio A.F.; Marques, Rodrigo F.A.; Geurts, E.G.M.; Creemers, R.J.C.; Timmermans, H.S.; Habing, R.; Kapteijn, K. (2019-06)
      The aircraft manufacturer Embraer, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) and German–Dutch Wind Tunnels (DNW) have tested an innovative highly flexible wing within an aeroelastic wind ...
