In recent years, accompanied by economic growth, air transportation in Vietnam has rapidly risen with the introduction of many new airlines. This situation has led to an increase in aircraft movement frequency flying in and out of the airports and raised concerns about the effects of increased noise exposure levels on public health and the natural environment in the vicinity of the airports. Vietnam authority has also issued several documents to regulate the establishment of the noise contour maps to evaluate the current noise exposure levels around airports in Vietnam and recognized the noise problem in aviation as a significant issue. One of four measures to reduce the noise around airports introduced in the Balanced Approach to Noise Management of the International Civil Aviation Organization is noise abatement operational procedures. This research is one of the first attempts to provide a comprehensive study on predicting the noise levels and establishing noise contour maps around Tan Son Nhat International airport with the assumption that aircraft take-off following the noise abatement departure procedures 1 and 2 using MATLAB software. The computed noise contours for both procedures show that the day-evening-night equivalent noise levels range from 45 dB to 60 dB around the airport, with the difference in noise levels between the two procedures primarily occurring at the end of the runway due to the difference in stepped departures. These results provide a reference for the authorities to study further in applying suitable noise reduction plans in the vicinity of airports.
This study presents an investigation and evaluation of the control quality of the automatic control system for UAVs in the vertical plane under windy conditions. For the operational stages of UAVs in general, the landing stage is one of the high-probability stages that pose a threat to flight safety, especially at the time of landing. Therefore, to evaluate the control quality of the system, the authors investigated the parameters during UAV landing. The automatic control system uses a PID controller with optimal parameters selected by the Signal Constraint tool in Matlab Simulink. The predetermined wind model was used to verify at the most extreme times. The programs proposed in the paper are simulated on Matlab Simulink software.
In this paper, aerodynamic performance benefits of morphing unmanned aerial vehicle’s wing concepts are investigated. A Predator MQ-1B with variable wing structure was utilized for this study. The concept consists of variable twist (-10°< θ
Сreation of noise exposure maps and airport noise compatibility programs are the basic steps in aircraft noise exposure and impact management in/around the airports, both of them are fundamental for aircraft noise zoning procedures. Noise reduction at source is also a strategic element of this management, and efficient implementation of quieter aircraft designs in operation provides closer distances of the boundaries of noise zones prohibited for residences to runway axis. These new conditions oblige the decision-makers, responsible for noise management, to be stricter with procedures for noise zones definition and to include in consideration a number of new acoustic sources inside the aerodrome besides the aircraft in flight operation, which may influence the overall exposure and impact of noise on population living or/and acting around the airport. In other words, current noise exposure maps and airport noise compatibility programs must include these dominant noise sources at specific locations of the airport also, not only the flight noise sources, as it was enough before. Today such essential noise sources for consideration in airport noise management are the aircraft in maintenance and overhaul and the aircraft during the taxing between the runway and stands on apron first of all, especially if their locations are quite far from aircraft flight operation routes and close to the residential areas around the aerodrome. The noise maps are required to be calculated currently, as for aircraft operation, so as for their maintenance and overhaul, but the measurements are evident also for their confidence and accuracy purposes.
For flying equipment, the construction of intelligent systems that solve problems arising during operation is a new trend nowadays. Self-diagnostic and failure warning systems are developed on most modern aircraft, making the technical exploitation process safer and more cost-effective. In the study, the author has completed a small part of the system to automatically diagnose and repair the failure of the angular speed sensing block on the flying device. The author presents the following contents to complete this system in this paper. The primary purpose of the research is to build a complete automatic fault diagnosis and repair system for a specific class of inductance (angular speed sensor). The algorithms proposed in the paper are simulated on Matlab Simulink software, which will prove the feasibility of the proposed algorithm.
