Transdisciplinary engineering transcends other inter- and multi-disciplinary ways of working, such as Concurrent Engineering (CE). In particular, transdisciplinary processes are aimed at solving complex, ill-defined problems, or problems for which the solution is not immediately obvious. No one discipline or single person can provide sufficient knowledge to solve such problems, so collaboration is essential. This book presents the proceedings of the 27th ISTE International Conference on Transdisciplinary Engineering, organized by Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, from 1-10 July 2020. ISTE2020 was the first of this conference series to be held virtually, due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Entitled Transdisciplinary Engineering for Complex Socio-technical Systems - Real-life Applications, the book includes 71 peer-reviewed papers presented at the conference by authors from 17 countries. These range from theoretical and conceptual to strongly pragmatic and addressing industrial best practice and, together with invited talks, they have been collated into 9 sections: Transdisciplinary Engineering (7 papers); Transdisciplinary Engineering Education (4 papers); Industry 4.0, Methods and Tools (7 papers); Human-centered Design (8 papers); Methods and Tools for Design and Production (14 papers); Product and Process Development (9 papers); Knowledge and Data Modeling (13 papers); Business Process and Supply Chain Management (7 papers); and Sustainability (2 papers). The book provides an overview of new approaches, methods, tools and their applications, as well as current research and development, and will be of interest to researchers, design practitioners, and educators working in the field.

Advances in materials, actuators, and control architectures have enabled new design paradigms for unmanned aerial vehicles based on biological inspiration. Indeed, there has been a recent drive to design aircraft features and behaviors based on those of birds, insects, and flying mammals. This dissertation focuses on one such bio-inspired maneuver, perching, which can be described as a low-thrust, aerodynamically controlled, planted landing. While planted landings are possible in helicopters and jump jets, it has yet to be achieved on a low-thrust, high-efficiency platform such as a long loiter reconnaissance aircraft. It is proposed that in-flight shape reconfiguration can enable this class of aircraft to execute this maneuver without sacrificing its cruise performance. This dissertation discusses the perching problem at various levels, from the aerodynamics of the wing to the complete trajectory of the maneuver. A lifting-line technique, a variant of Weissinger's classical method, is developed to analyze the aerodynamics of morphing wings in the attached flow regime. This tool is used both to study the effects of morphing on a wing's loading and to populate a database of aerodynamic coefficients for simulating the perching aircraft. Thusly, the aircraft is simulated in the longitudinal plane and compared to a similar fixed-configuration aircraft. Trim and stability analyses are performed on each aircraft in order to clarify the effects of morphing on the aircraft's longitudinal dynamics. Finally, viable perching trajectories, which bring the aircraft from a cruise configuration to a planted landing, are developed and optimized in terms of their spatial requirements. Three classes of aircraft are simulated in this optimization study: point-mass, fixedconfiguration (i.e. conventional), and morphing aircraft. Comparisons of these classes show that fixed-configuration aircraft are limited by their pitch maneuverability, whereas morphing can alleviate these limitations by increasing the available pitch authority. It is concluded that morphing increases pitch controllability during the maneuver while simultaneously decreasing the spatial requirements of the perching maneuver. (Abstract).

The book includes the research papers presented in the final conference of the EU funded SARISTU (Smart Intelligent Aircraft Structures) project, held at Moscow, Russia between 19-21 of May 2015. The SARISTU project, which was launched in September 2011, developed and tested a variety of individual applications as well as their combinations. With a strong focus on actual physical integration and subsequent material and structural testing, SARISTU has been responsible for important progress on the route to industrialization of structure integrated functionalities such as Conformal Morphing, Structural Health Monitoring and Nanocomposites. The gap- and edge-free deformation of aerodynamic surfaces known as conformal morphing has gained previously unrealized capabilities such as inherent de-icing, erosion protection and lightning strike protection, while at the same time the technological risk has been greatly reduced. Individual structural health monitoring techniques can now be applied at the part-manufacturing level rather than via extending an aircraft’s time in the final assembly line. And nanocomposites no longer lose their improved properties when trying to upscale from neat resin testing to full laminate testing at element level. As such, this book familiarizes the reader with the most significant develo pments, achievements and key technological steps which have been made possible through the four-year long cooperation of 64 leading entities from 16 different countries with the financial support of the European Commission.

The following work summarizes the development of shape-adaptive airfoil profiles for wind turbine application. The underlying motivation of this work is the potential cost effectiveness of wind power conversion through the introduction of shape-adaptive airfoils in future wind turbine blades. The employment of shape adaption system in the wind turbine blade geometry would facilitate a more efficient power harvesting for the next generation of smart wind turbines. In the scope of this work, the concepts of the dedicated shape-adaptive airfoil profiles for wind turbine application are investigated in light of their aerodynamic performances. The concepts of the actuation system are developed while taking pre-defined design boundary conditions suitable for wind turbine application into consideration. A novel numerical approach is developed towards the simulation of fluid-structure interaction for prototype shape-adaptive airfoils. The numerical scheme is employed in designing the shape-adaptive blade prototypes. Effort has been given to develop a unique actuator system for wind turbine application. In a next step, experimental investigations are carried out to quantize the aerodynamic flow-field around the shape-adaptive airfoils. Parallelly, experimental investigations are carried out on a rigid NACA 0012 airfoil to log its performance at different stagger angles. In a further step, numerical investigations are carried out on the different airfoil configurations. Finally, performance analyses of the airfoils are carried out. The shape-adaptive airfoils outperform the rigid NACA 0012 airfoil for the desired performance envelope.

The present book includes a set of selected papers from the seventh "International Conference on Informatics in Control Automation and Robotics" (ICINCO 2010), held in Madeira, Portugal, from 15 to 18 June 2010. The conference was organized in three simultaneous tracks: "Intelligent Control Systems and Optimization", "Robotics and Automation" and "Signal Processing, Systems Modeling and Control". The book is based on the same structure. ICINCO received 320 paper submissions, not including those of workshops or special sessions, from 57 countries, in all continents. After a double blind paper review performed by the Program Committee only 27 submissions were accepted as full papers and thus selected for oral presentation, leading to a full paper acceptance ratio of 8%. Additional papers were accepted as short papers and posters. A further refinement was made after the conference, based also on the assessment of presentation quality, so that this book includes the extended and revised versions of the very best papers of ICINCO 2010. Commitment to high quality standards is a major concern of ICINCO that will be maintained in the next editions of this conference, including not only the stringent paper acceptance ratios but also the quality of the program committee, keynote lectures, workshops and logistics.
