Updated ~ AIAA@ASU First Fall 2013 Meeting ~ Sept 4th at 6:30pm in SCOB 210August 30th, 2013 | Posted by in Meetings
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics @ ASU will host its first meeting of the Fall 2013 semester on Wednesday, September 4th, at 6:30pm in SCOB 210. Come join us to learn about AIAA@ASU and meet other students who are also interested in aerospace (any major is welcome). We will be discussing what AIAA@ASU is, the benefits of membership and how to join as well as a guest speaker presentation.
Our guest speaker for the evening will be Dr. Dahm with a presentation titled “Recent Advances in Air Force Aeropropulsion Systems”
Dr. Werner J.A. Dahm
ASU Foundation Professor of Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering
Director, Security & Defense Systems Initiative (SDSI)
Former Chief Scientist of the U.S. Air Force
Many of the most important advances in aeropropulsion systems have originated in Department of Defense programs, especially from Air Force investments to produce a continuing series of technology advances in military aircraft engines that can enable flight across a wide Mach number range. These technologies are often later used as a basis for improved commercial aircraft engines as well. This presentation will summarize a number of current and recent DoD programs aimed at enabling or improving flight through Mach 6, including highly efficient embedded turbine engines, high speed turbine engines, pulsed detonation engines, and scramjet engines. In each of these areas, substantial advances have been made that are now supporting the development of new types of air platforms, ranging from high-speed strike capabilities to next-generation bombers and fighters to more fuel-efficient tankers and transports.
We are also looking for committed officers to fill a few open positions. Send us an e-mail if you are interested or would like more information. We will be having elections at the beginning of the meeting.
There will be free pizza, but bring your own drink.
