GREEN FUTURE OF THE

Aerostats are lighter than air structures that do not need the kinetic activity to generate the lifting force, as their neutral state is already floating in air without any energy consumption. In comparison, Aerodynes are winged aircrafts that rapidly consume energy in order to stay airborne. Although Aerostats are more efficient, safe and the environmental friendly method of flying during long flights at lower speed, today, aerodynes are used in these kinds of missions due to the lack of suitable and accessible Aerostats.

Final Degree Project


Past and Today of Airships When airplanes has no acceptable reliability and safety, Airships are capable of accomplishing extreme air-missions as Transatlantic Flights, Polar Expeditions, Heavy Bombard, Anti-submarine escorting to trade ships; even dropping several fighter airplanes to war areas. Rise of the airship ends by a tragic event on 6th May 1937. German passenger airship Hiddenburg, the biggest flying machine ever built, caught fire and was destroyed during its attempt to dock with its mooring mast at New Jersey. 36 of the 97 people on board died. The accident served to shatter public confidence in the giant, passenger-carrying rigid airship, and marked the end of the airship era. During its operating lifetime, the Hindenburg crossed the Atlantic 35 times, including 7 round trips to Rio de Janeiro and 10 round trips to New York. The Hindenburg was designed to be lifted by Helium, but due to pre-war conditions, USA stop helium exporting to Germany, which obligates usage of hydrogen in Hindenburg. World War II started by paper-like airplanes and ended with jetplanes. In 6 years, airplane technology developed incredibly, with the help of tremendous investments and deadly competitive conditions of war. On the other side; peaceful, giant gentles of the skies; aerostats pay the penalty of not involving into WW2. Due to the lack of suitable and accessible aerostats; today “Aerodynes” are being used in many air-missions, that would be accomplished by “Aerostats” in much efficient way.


Planet Earth is out of Helium

Hot-air as Lifting Gas

__Helium demand is rapidly increasing, as the reserves are limited. At 2008 rates of consumption, world has only a 25-year helium supply. __The second most abundant element in universe; but one of the rarest element on Earth; Helium is the most efficient and the safest buoyant gas. 1m3 Helium can lift 1,1kg; and it has no flamable or posionous characteristics. __But price of helium is skyrocketing for the last few years, due to the increasing demand against limited reserves. Helium is crucial for many sector, such as, scientific researches, radioactive activities, medical imaging, spacecraft engines, welding and cutting applications, laser applications, leak detection, deep sea diving and finally airships. __Today, it is so expensive to deflate a helium airship, which creates a need of huge hangars to store aircraft. This also cause problem about mobility of aircraft on ground, between remote distances. __As the propulsion unit consume fuel, the overall weight of airship reduces while flying. To compansate this, lifting force must be reduced by exhausting some helium to athmosphere.

__Hot-air (120OC) has only 30% lifting capacity of Helium. Low performance but cost-efficient. __Hot air balloons or airships can rapidly deflated for transporting or storing the structure into small spaces. Without need of a ground infrastructure, hotair balloons are one of the cost-efficient aircraft ever in use. __Hot-air is free material, but fossil fuels (generally propane) that used to heat up the air, is still a cost. During the ascend more air must be heated up. And releasing some part of hot-air to athmosphere must be done to descend. Non-powered hot. air balloons, need the find the right air current in any height to propell them to the designated route. This search of right wind requires lots of altitute change which also cause more fossil fuel burning. __As condensed sunlight creates tremendous heat, this heat can easily be used to heat up air, by a system which works the opposite way of an air-cooling systems.


Emerging Technologies Emerging Technologies Fresnel Lens System __Comparing to Photovoltaics, Concentrated Solar Power Techniques __Stirling engine, works by the movement of the gas between cooler __Flywheel energy storage (FES) works by accelerating a rotor which are beased on concentrating solar rays by lenses or mirrors to generate heat. This enables more efficient energy convertion, in a more simple and accessible way.

__Invented by Augustin-Jean Fresnel; “Fresnel Lens/Mirror” is a design approach for optical devices that allows large aperture and short focal length by significantly reducing the mass and volume of material required compared to conventional designs. Fresnel lenses can be produced as array of glass pieces, or even in thin layer of flexible polymers.

AIRSHIP SUNRISE

SKY SOLAR POWERED THERMAL AIRSHIP


ENERGY STORAGE: Beyond being a buoyant device, the well

insulated balloon also acts as Heat Energy Storage. This enables extra flight time for moments without sunlight. Any extra energy is then transformed into motion and stored in a Flywheel Energy Storage. To ascend or descend, a change in the forward propulsion up or down, respectively, is done. As in traditional balloons, this system removes the need to change the amount of buoyant gas during altitude adjustments.

SOLAR UNIT:

A thin Fresnel Lens behind the transparent part of balloon, concentrates sunlight into a focus to create heat. Hot air in balloon is even more heated in focus point and sent to Power Unit by a pipe. Beyond being a buoyant device, the well insulated balloon also acts as Heat Energy Storage with its multi-layer fabric, coated with reflective finishing inside and black outside. This enables extra flight time for moments without sunlight. Fresnel Lens is always facing into sun by 2-axis Sun Tracking System, which rotates balloon 90O in horizontal axis and 360O in vertical axis.


POWER UNIT: Stirling engine; is an external combustion

engine; working by the movement of the gas between cooler and heater compartments. As the heat difference between the compartments get higher, the efficiency of the engine get higher. The power unit use hot air heated by Solar Unit, to heat up the hot compartment; as cooling system reduce the temperature of the cold compartment.

3) Pipe brings hot air into the heat box under the focus

A hot-air balloon heated to (100°C) requires about 3.91m³ of envelope volume to lift 1 kilogram. According to the “Ideal Gas Formula“ (PV=nrT) the buoyancy of hot-air increases in direct proportion to the increase of temperature in Kelvin. (Kelvin=Celsius+273)

Introduction

What is Lightcraft?

Lightcraft is an aircraft which is powered by external laser sources. Therefore, there is no need to carry its fuel, which extremely increase the fuel efficiency. Leik Myrabo is an aerospace engineering professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute who has demonstrated the feasibility of using ground-based lasers to propel objects into orbit; possibly reducing orbit-flight costs by a factor of 1000. Myrabo first had the idea for laserpropelled Lightcraft in the early 1980’s, while working on “Star Wars” Anti-missile Programme. After 1996, paper studies tried on smaller scale model lightcrafts on USA, Russia, Japan and Brazil. Also a full scale model, that targets to carry one crew to orbit, is being tried in Brazil.

Project Brief

Lightcraft is engineered as a space module, not a civil transportation aircraft. Lightcraft Project targets implementing the engineered Lightcraft module into practical public transportation scenarios.

Scenario phase01

Climbimg to orbit: By laser propelling, aircraft will climb up to the required height & speed get into orbit. Orbital travel: Around 11km/second, the vehicle get into orbit and go anywhere without consuming energy. A tour around world can be done in 90 minutes. Passengers can experience zero gravity. 03 phase Gliding back: Gliding in atmosphere like a frisbee 04 phase Landing: Backup rockets will slow down the aircraft and let a soft landing. phase02

Project groups are consist of three person, each from 2nd year students in 3 master programmes in Umeå Design Institute: Advanced Product Design, Transportation Design, Interaction Design.

Lightcraft’s cone-like shape and shiny finishing are both crucial for aerodynamic efficiency and laser reflections. Aurora Lightcraft’s MHD Intakes are positioned lower, to increase volume of the passenger cabin. Landing gear with six feet increase stability during landing and launch.

AuroraLightcraft - safe-

In engineered concept, it is planned to have ejecting seats. But during the majority of the journey time, lightcraft will be inside a hot plasma, or orbiting in extreme speeds, which makes impossible to eject a human out. So we offer to jettison all engines and tanks, in a risk of explosion to secure “Passenger Survival Module” followed by an emergency landing procedure by parachutes.

When hatches are closed, passengers are seated on their back, with a 20 angle to horizontal, which minimize affects of G-force during take-off. This will also give best personal space and window view for passengers. Passengers don’t feel upside down, because, there is no sense of feeling “up” or “down” in Zero-gravity. O

AuroraLightport

Modular Structures:

Today, many of huge airports are not in use, because of false predictions or losing its importance. So, a port construction must let increase or decrease its capacity easily. For this, it must be made by modular structures but this must not disable building different variations for different needs.

Modular

No footprint on nature

Solar Power

A module is based on 3 hexagon shaped cells which can support basic needs of any lightcraft passenger. When modules increase in a row, passenger and service corridors joins end to end. As the second row positioned opposite, Passenger Corridors join laterally and widen twice. Then with the third row, Service Corridors join laterally and widen twice.

There is no need for crew inside aircraft during short flight time. So, Ground Hostesses are responsible for safety & needs of passengers on ground. After basic instructions, she makes security controls about seating and belts.

Flight Captain

Although Lightcraft is fully automated vehicle, Flight Captain at the Control Tower is responsible for airborne passengers. During the flight, he/she connect to craft and informs passengers about journey and safety.

Lightcraft Engineer

Engineers are responsible for all technical issue about lightcrafts. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interact with passengers, as they use service corridors for transportation between launch points and main hangar.

Lightcraft Leasing

Companies can hire Launch Modules and place it on their business center. So Lightcrafts can be used for business operations as crew and equipment delivery to an oilrig in Antartica, or transportation of businessmen between worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance centers.

Design Brief:

Music & Working: >> %32 of workers listen to music at work. >> %79 of radio listeners feel that it improves their job satisfaction and productivity. >> Workers usually can’t listen music by earphones because it blocks hearing the important sounds around. That’s why, old style speakers are still being used in workshops for listening music. And hearing a live radio station, keeps people alive and add a nice ambiance to working environment.

>> The target is designing a mini heavy-duty radio by considering durability and safety. A real working model should be built by using electronic parts of an existing radio on market. >> Interior structure should be engineered and modelled by Solidworks and printed by rapid prototype, as the project budget allows.

Product Analysis: >> Electronic parts of an existing radio are used for building a working model. Three different radio models on market analized according to usability of electronic parts in new design. Selected one’s interior parts are measured carefully and modelled in Solidworks.

PROCESS 1/2

01

Alias

Main body design was modelled in Autodesk Studio Tools by considering smaller size that cost less.

02

Solidworks

Detailing is done in Solidworks. Thin shells are supported by inside, to increase durability while minimizing the cost.

03

Rapid Prototyping

Buttons and shell parts; 16 pieces are built by rapid prototyping. Then, parts cleaned by water jet and castic soda.

04

Surface Treatment

Gray spray filler is applied by several layers. 3D data is modelled before by considering extra thickness of finishing.

05

Painting

Matt Orange, Matt Gray and Granular Dark Gray are applied on parts and kept in heat box to dry.


MUSIC3

PROCESS 2/2

06

Soldering

Poorly soldered cables split from circuit boards during analysis process. So; all connections are splited and re-soldered.

07

Assembly

Thin body parts and weak connections are supported by wood blocks for extra durability. Circuit boards and buttons are fixed to shell.

08

Antenna

Existing antenna was so big to fit in. So, smaller antennas are tested and the best was positioned inside the antenna shell.

09

Bending the Cage

The cage is PVC cylinder that heated and bended on a template. After filling the heat deformations, the cage was painted.

10

Rubber Bands

After a market research, I decided to use bicycle interior tubes which fits perfectly about its size and elasticity.


MUSIC3

SPECIFICATIONS

Shock Absorbing Flexible Antenna Main body is protected from crushing by cage. Also the four flexible bands between cage and body, absorb the shock of impacts.

Antenna is the only body part that is not protected by the cage. So flexible material of the antenna will avoid it to be broken.

Simple Interface

FM Tuning, Volume and On/Off buttons are easy to grab and easy to understand.

Use As Speaker

You can connect any music device to radio by cable and use it as a speaker.

Importance of eating speed against obesity

Design Brief:

>> Compared with those who don’t eat quickly, fast-eating men were 84% more likely to be overweight, and women were just over twice as likely. Those, who, in addition to wolfing down their meals, tended to eat until they felt full, were more than three times more likely to be overweight.

>> Treatment at hospital is not only expensive but also makes patiences stressed. People who need regular treatment want to make it at home. That’s why, “Personal Medical Care and Wellness Products” are a fastly growing market today.

>> If you eat quickly you basically fill your stomach before your gastric feedback has a chance to start informing brain. Until that time you already overfill the stomach. It takes a while for the brain to realize that the stomach is stretching. Eating slowly gives the brain time to catch on... >> If people overfill often, walls of the stomach tend to stretch and stomach get slowly bigger. On the contrary, you can make your stomach smaller by eating less in a regular way.

>> The main target of the project is defining a future design strategy for Philips Medical, according to maket conditions and user needs; and applying this to a product that fits Philips brand values.

User Studies

Biology Research >> Memo Tembelcizer is a 37 year old single man lives in İstanbul. He is a well-known caricature artist and writer in Turkey. (Body: 105kg - 1,72m) His Eating Profile: - He eats a lot. Also eats outside a lot. - He eats too fast. - He is incontinent about eating - Although there are too much food and no sports in his life, he feel bad and worried about his health. - He is not a strong-willed and self-motivated person. - He tried several ways of sports and diet but none of them worked in long term.

Why we eat fast?

Evolution of Eating Instict:

>> For billions of years, humankind evolved in a habitat that force

>> For 4,5 billion years human ancestors lived as hunter and collector. But the age of “Food

them to eat as fast as possible to take the highest calorie in shortest time, before bigger carnivors attack them or stole their food.

Producing Homo Erectus” is only a few thousands of years. So, eating fast and much when food is accessible, is our ancestors’ most primitive survival instinct, that will also stay in our genes for too many generations.

4.500.000 years ago

PAST < > FUTURE ? hunter & collector omnivor homidins (represented by green bar)

food producing human (represented by black bar)

We must learn to eat like a modern human, Although we have cavemen’s eating instincts...


SLOW DOWN eating speed reminder against overweight

>> When the digestive system realizes that it take enough calorie, it sends hormones to hypothalamus of the brain to report. And brain stop hungriness feeling. The problem is; this process works slow and in that time gap, we go on eating and taking more calorie which we don’t actually need. >> Because of the complexity and resistance of the endocrine and digestive systems; It is so hard to find a permanent solution for overweight by manipulating this systems by external chemicals.

Why we eat more?

>> Because when we eat, brains is rewarding itself with happiness hormones to motivate human to eat again. >> This Rewarding Mechanism is the basic principle of many instincts. When this system of guinea pigs is canceled; they excessively stop eating and mating.

CONCLUSION Without any diet; only by slowing down the eating speed, you can take less calorie. In addition; eating slow, adjust body to eat less in long term...

Training for Slower Eating 1) Conditioned Reflex:

>> Pavlov’s Conditioned Reflex is the base of many humans’ physiological behavior and psychological reactions. When, a signal is added to a Cause & Effects reaction, the Effect can be activated only by signal without the Cause, after the conditioned reflex built. So; Pavlov’s Conditioned Reflex Theory can be used for creating connections between visual signals of the device and the target reactions like slowing down or stop.

2) Reminding: >> Reminding is the an efficient way to reduce eating speed. Experiment with obese kids shows that, reminding method reduces the eating speed 11% and reduces body-mass index 2.1, three times better than traditional Obesity treatments.

>> Slow Down measures the weight loss from the plate and analyze eating speed according to weight and frequency of bites. If the bite is too big or frequent, it illuminates red. If eating speed goes right, it glows green to motivate user. >> It doesn’t consider the weight added to plate which can be fork, knife or hand pressure. >> Total weight of the food eaten is not considered. Because “Slow Down” offers a solution by eating slower, independent from amount of food eaten.

The bus generally maintains a well protected cage for passengers. More dangerous scenario is flying inside and crash something or somebody, or flying outside through a broken window.

Accidents reports and crash dynamics show us, fixing passengers to seat reduces the injuries and seatbelts keep bodies ready to be rescued, in their place. A flying body inside the bus, is deadly for both itself and others.

4 POINT SEAT BELT

USER SCENARIO

TIDY STRAPS & SIMPLE DESIGN

CONSTRUCTION The seat has four automatic retractors instead of two. In an accident, passenger’s body is pulled back by four different independent working points that calculate and use the most balanced pulling back power.

1) PASSIVE:

2) ACTIVATION:

3) INFLATING:

4) BUCKLING UP:

Straps are tightly positioned on two sides of back part.

When the passenger sits, system start after a few seconds to let user to seat comfortably

Straps slowly inflate and reposition for most easy position to buckle-up. If user don’t buckle up, straps will stay inflated for warning.

Just after buckling up, straps deflates and gets tight. After that passenger can adjust shoulder height if it needs.

Regular belts of seats in bus, creates mess when they are not in use. But two sides of the seats’ back parts are specially formed by bending from sides to front; to hold straps in a tight and tidy way when they are not in use.

Inflating system works by a central compressed air resource. Air will come to condenser under the seat. After inflating, the condenser will take and keep air inside for next usage.


EASY BUCKLE-UP

4 POINT SEAT BELT

NO EXCUSE NOT TO CONNECT SAFETY BELT 1) THE MOST ACCESSIBLE POSITION

As connectors stand in front, the passenger only need to grab them and connect which is dramatically easier compared to connact a normal 4-point belt.

2) WARNING THE PASSENGER

As the straps are positioned in front of the passenger, it stays inflated until the passenger connects it. This warning will turn into a disturbance on the eyesight in long term.

3) ADJUSTABLE SHOULDER POINTS

Height of the shoulder points must be adjusted for different body sizes. It the height is so low or high, the protection factor can severely reduce.

Design Brief:

Form & Sketches:

>> Coffee or Espresso makers in the market are generaly boxy, primitive shapes that contain lots of confusing details. The main shape of the products force user to position it in front of the wall. >> The project targets for a Full Automatic Espresso Maker design which will have a standalone form, staying away from boxy shapes and can be positioned anywhere on a surface. >> The project started by researches about Electrolux Brand Values, Market, Users and Story of Coffee

>> Coffee is more than a drink if you consider the story and the history behind it. So the form of coffee maker can basically resemble the story of the coffee, from up to down. Row beans in the top, will be processed on the way to the down and flow to cup at the bottom of the product


ELECTROPRESSO FULL AUTOMATIC ESPRESSO MACHINE

Specifications:

Tray moves up & down automatically.

Cup Heater area only heats the surface that cups contact.

Tap indicator lights show which tap is in use.

Build a personal user profile for quick selection on menu.

Visible bean container release coffee smell on break time.

The cup area is illuminated when the environment is dark.
