Space Universities Network - Supporting space science and engineering higher education community in the UK (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Berthoud, L., Glester, A., Angling, M., Baker, A., Bannister, N., Bowden, K., …Toomer, C. (2018, April). Space Universities Network - Supporting space science and engineering higher education community in the UK. Paper presented at 2nd Symposium on Space Educational Activities

The world space economy is expected to grow to $400 billion by 2030 and to provide 100,000 jobs. In the UK we currently have 38,500 directly employed with a further 70000 jobs dependent on the space sector. By 2030 the UK aims to have a further 100,0...

An investigation into predicting vortex ring state in rotary aircraft (2014)
Presentation / Conference
Westbrook-Netherton, O., & Toomer, C. (2014, July). An investigation into predicting vortex ring state in rotary aircraft. Paper presented at RAeS Applied Aerodynamics Conference

Results from wind tunnel experiments and Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations have been presented which suggest it may be possible to predict when a rotary aircraft will enter Vortex Ring State (VRS). Results suggest that the formation of a... Read More about An investigation into predicting vortex ring state in rotary aircraft.

Dynamic soaring mechanisms in the ocean boundary layer (2014)
Presentation / Conference
Bonnin, V., Benard, E., Toomer, C., & Moschetta, J. (2014, March). Dynamic soaring mechanisms in the ocean boundary layer. Paper presented at 3AF, 49th International Symposium of Applied Aerodynamics

Dynamic Soaring is a flying technique which extracts energy from an environment where wind gradients form, such as the air-sea interface above oceans that sees such gradients forming through multiple and combined phenomena. Models of wind-wave intera... Read More about Dynamic soaring mechanisms in the ocean boundary layer.

Improvement of spin flight test quality by evaluation of measured data (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Schrader, S., Hoffmann, J., Toomer, C., Luo, T., Kuenzer, J., & Cheng, P. (2013, November). Improvement of spin flight test quality by evaluation of measured data. Paper presented at Quality Control

The aim is to equip an aeroplane with different sensor systems to acquire data from spin flight tests. One sensor system contains an acceleration sensor and electronic gyroscopes to determine the attitude and position and another sensor system contai...
