About me

My name is Ingo Staack. I was born and grew up south of Munich/Germany. I studied mechanical engineering (Dipl.-Ing) at Technische Universität München (TUM) and did my diploma thesis in year 2008. Study focus had been on aircraft design and light weight structures. Since 2009 I work as a Ph D student at the Division of Fluid and Mechatronic Systems (Flumes) within the Department of Management and Engineering (IEI), Linköping University under the supervision of Prof. Petter Krus.


My research topics are aircraft (a/c) energy efficient (power) systems, especially the Environmental Control System (ECS) and the primary flight control system, mainly implemented as a constant pressure (power) hydraulic system. Furthermore I and my colleges research the a/c conceptual design process where I try to challenge the problematic of system knowledge (e.g. for weight estimation) during the early design process. Main topic in this area is the integration of simulation already during the conceptual design stage, which is normally today a subject for the preliminary and detail design phase. Major challenge -and process enabler- is a robust but flexible data setup with some kind of configurator knowledge which enables a fast and robust creation of subsystem- or whole system simulation dataset.

Find more information to each topic on my projects sides:

  • Environmental Control System (ECS) simulation for architecture and component optimization (link comming soon)
  • Multidisciplinary "Conceptual aircraft design" tool development (TANGO) with robust/flexible data setup for CAD and simulation integration (link comming soon)
  • Total aircraft, primary flight control system and onboard power systems simulation using HOPSAN (link comming soon)



Undergraduate Research

During my university study I performed the following three research projects:

  • "Construction and verification of a filament impregnation machine for FCRP unidirectional structure components"; term project at the Institute of Lightweight Structures, TUM
  • "Feasibility study of an air humidification system based on ultrasonic technique for the local humidification of an airliner cabin"; term project in cooperation with AOA Apparatebau Gauting GmbH and the Institute of Aircraft Design, TUM (former: Institute of Aeronautical Engineering; Prof. D. Schmitt)
  • "Flight Test Data Acquisition Design: Design, programming, building and testing of a flight test data logging system"; master thesis at Fluid and Mechatronic Systems (Flumes), Linköping University

The research papers listed above are available on request. Both term project papers are available in German language only.
