Pieter-Jan Proesmans is a PhD candidate in the Flight Performance & Propulsion group at Delft University of Technology. He completed his BSc. and MSc. in Aerospace Engineering from Delft University of Technology. His research areas of interest are aircraft design, propulsion integration and design methodologies such as Multi-Disciplinary Design Optimisation and Knowledge Based Engineering. In the GLOWOPT project, he will focus on the aircraft design aspects together with Dr. Vos. As a first step, he will design a reference aircraft employing in-house design tools. Later in the project, he will extend these applications such that the newly developed CFAD can be evaluated in the design process. This will allow to carry out a multi-disciplinary design optimization and to identify the set of aircraft design variables which minimizes global warming impact.
