UAV Design


Roles: Project coordinator, UAV design & performance, aerodynamics & stability, structural analysis, manufacturing drawings, flight control system, flight path optimization, data gathering and management software

The Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics and Turbomachinery (LFMT, of the School of Mechanical Engineering of the Aristotle university of Thessaloniki, specializes in the aerodynamic layout design and development of UAVs, as well as the research on aero engines parts, utilizing both experimental and computational tools. LFMT has developed methodologies and sizing tools for aircraft and fixed-wing UAV design and performance assessment, based both on conventional and innovative configurations. Specifically, the research group of prof. K. Yakinthos, who is charged with the coordination of the project, is responsible for the configuration layout, aerodynamic and structural design of the RX-4.

Two more research groups from the AUTH Faculty of Engineering are also taking part in the project.

The research group of prof. P. Seferlis at Machine Dynamics Laboratory (MDL) is responsible for flight control system design and flight-path optimization of the RX-4.

The research group of the assoc. prof. E. Stylianidis of the School of Spatial Planning and Development is responsible for the RX-4 data gathering and management software.
