Projects of Prof. i.R. Dr. Thomas Hauf

Research Projects

Simulation of post-frontal shower cells

 

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr. Thomas Hauf

Researcher:

Stephan Himmelsbach

Duration:

01/01/2010 - 18/06/2015

 

 

MET4ATM

 

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr. Thomas Hauf

Researcher:

Patrick Hupe, Manuela Sauer

Duration:

01/10/2011 - 30/06/2015

Funded by:

Austro Control

Brief description:

This project investigated the influence of a squall line situation on air traffic and controllers' workload. Project partners were Austro Control and the Universität Salzburg, Austria.

 

 

Capture, quality assurance, preparation and dissemination of pilot observations (PIREPs/AIREPs)

 

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr. Thomas Hauf

Researcher:

Patrick Hupe, Jasmin Siedler

Duration:

17/01/2013 - 17/10/2014

Funded by:

German Weather Service (DWD)

Brief description:

Since the 14th of December 2000, pilot weather reports (PIREPs) have been archived at the IMuK. Related to this project reports about aircraft icing are prepared and provided to the German Weather Service (DWD). The purpose is the setup of an observation archive, so that the information based on the PIREPs can be used by the DWD for the interests of aviation.

 

 

Simulation of arrival routes to Hong Kong International Airport

 

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr. T. Hauf

Researcher:

Manuela Sauer, Patrick Hupe

Duration:

01/06/2013 -

Brief description:

This project aimed investigation of decision support simulations with DIVMET to predict the weather affected remaining flight time til an aircraft can be integrated into the arrival manager (AMAN).

 

 

Intelligent Modeling the Impact of Unpredictable Adverse Weather on ATM Performance

 

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr. Thomas Hauf

Researcher:

Manuela Sauer

Duration:

01/09/2011 -

Funded by:

Eurocontrol (SESAR-WPE ComplexWorld)

Brief description:

The primary objective of this PhD project was to enhance the understanding of the interaction of two complex systems, air traffic and adverse weather. Therefore we investigated the development of an adverse weather diversion model, referred to as DIVMET. The impact of adverse weather and its forcing of aircraft diversions from planned routes are investigated in different modes of adverse weather knowledge. Principles to account for uncertainty in thunderstorm prediction and nowcasting were identified.

 

 

FLYSAFE

 

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr. T. Hauf

Researcher:

Dr. Michael Theusner, Dr. Peer Röhner, Katharina Koppe

Duration:

2004 - 2009

Funded by:

Eurocontrol

Brief description:

Within the FLYSAFE project 36 institutions investigated the identification and analysis of weather impacts on air traffic and developed first concepts for supporting tools to mitigate this impact.

Studies on optimised predictions of the liquid water content in COSMO-EU

 

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr. Thomas Hauf

Researcher:

Jasmin Siedler

Duration:

Coupling of DIVMET and the air traffic simulation model NAVSIM

 

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr. Thomas Hauf, Manuela Sauer

Researcher:

Alina Fiehn

Brief description:

The adverse weather diversion model DIVMET was coupled to the global air traffic simulation model NAVSIM, which is running in Salzburg, Austria. An appropriate way for communication was found that enables to deviate several aircraft simulated in NAVSIM simultaneously with DIVMET.

 

 

Bachelor's Theses

Simulating the diversion of aircraft in the presence of weather and traffic

 

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr. Thomas Hauf, Manuela Sauer

Researcher:

Kezia Lange

Duration:

01/04/2014 - 31/10/2014

Brief description:

This Bachelor's thesis deals with the model DIVMET which simulates the diversion of aircraft in case of adverse weather. DIVMET should be extended to avoid conflicts with other aircraft.
