Subject matter CURRICULUM AEROSPACE SYSTEMS (A111)

The student needs to know general notions of physics, electrotechnics, thermodynamics, and chemistry.

The course aims to analyze the functionality of each aerospace system. It analyses the interdependencies of several systems in routine or emergency conditions. The attention will be focused on the functional aspects of its components and less on their construction solutions. According to this setting, the system should be seen as a "logical block of functionality."

Upon completion of the course, students will have acquired:

  • The concept of aircraft is intended as a system operating within the air transport system, including, in particular, maintenance.
  • Basic knowledge of systems engineering: definition of requirements, management of interfaces, verification, and validation.
  • The ability to identify the main aerospace on-board systems, the functions they perform, the architectures, the performances, the operating principles, with references to the energy sources that allow each system's operation.
  • The ability to identify the features and design choices made through retrospective analysis of aircraft systems or existing space modules.
  • The ability to apply the concepts learned in class with simple sizing calculations of the on-board systems' elements.

The lesson is articulated through a series of sub-chapters repeated - as far as possible - in a standard way:

  • The mission of the system
  • Interdependence on other systems
  • Basic operating principles
  • Key components
  • Command, control, and warning systems
  • Description of the real plant
  • Operational aspects of the operation.

The exam consists of a written test with questions on the various systems and their correlation. An oral test will follow.

Aircraft board systems: Zones / Rooms / Doors; Engine systems; APU; Pneumatic system; Cabin air conditioning and pressurization system; Oxygen system; Fuel system; Hydraulic system; Flight controls; Landing gear adn brake system. Introduction to space systems

All lecture notes shown during lessons will be made available in the digital version.
During the lessons, the teacher will refer to the following textbooks:

I. Moir, A. Seabridge, “Aircraft Systems: Mechanical, Electrical and Avionics Subsystems Integration”, Volume 21 di Aerospace Series, John Wiley & Sons, 2008.

Temi di ricerca

The scientific activity mainly focuses on Computational Engineering and Design applied to aerospace systems [1] and manufacturing technologies [2]. 

[1] The use of computational methodologies, applied mathematics, and multidisciplinary optimization techniques have helped to study innovative configurations in the field of systems and structures. Meanwhile, prognostic approaches help to identify early progressive failures of onboard systems and to estimate their residual useful life. 
The main interests are:

  • Attitude dynamics and control of a large flexible space structure employing a minimum complexity model.
  • Electronic cooling issues for equipment.
  • Optomechanical problems on large mirrors (radius> 4 m).
  • Vibroacoustic problems in low-frequency and high-frequency - for space launch systems - solved using the finite element approach (FEM) and statistical energy analysis (SEA).

[2] In the field of aerospace technology and manufacturing systems, the main interests are:

  • Characterization and design of innovative cryogenic and high-speed machining for superalloys. 
  • Innovative solutions - e.g., augmented / virtual reality, IoT - in advanced manufacturing
  • Additive manufacturing for fine steels (i.e., SAF2507).
