Courses and Workshops

Introducing two NEW courses at AIAA Propulsion and Energy FORUM!


Emerging Concepts in High Speed Air-Breathing Propulsion NEW!

8-9 July 2017
0800-1700 hrs

High speed air breathing propulsion is becoming more prevalent. The standard approaches involve turbojets, scramjets, and turbine-based combined cycle systems. Emerging cycles include the Japanese ATREX engine and the air-breathing rocket engine, which rely on pre-cooling the air with heat exchangers. Additional emerging cycles include pressure gain cycles, Mass Injection Pre-Combustion Cooling, Oxy-Boost which injects oxygen during the cycle, and turbo-ramjets in which the air bypasses the turbojet at high speeds and the afterburner is treated as a ramjet. This course is designed to explore these cycles and bring a theoretical understanding of how to apply them and what performance advantages they might have. More Details

Hybrid Rocket Propulsion

8-9 July 2017
0800-1700 hrs

*COURSE CANCELLED (as of 16 June 2017): This short course is essential for all professionals specializing in chemical propulsion. The mechanisms associated with hybrid combustion and propulsion are diverse and affect our abilities to successfully advance and sustain the development of hybrid technology. The goal is to promote the science of hybrid rocketry which is safe enough to be used in both academia and the private sector.

Liquid Rocket Engines: Fundamentals, Green Propellants, and Emerging Technologies

8-9 July 2017
0800-1700 hrs

[NOTE as of 30 June: The Liquid Rocket Engines: Fundamentals, Green Propellants, and Emerging Technologies course is SOLD OUT. If you would like to be contacted if space in the course becomes available, please contact Megan Scheidt.] 
This two-day course will cover propulsion fundamentals and topics of interest in launch vehicle and spacecraft propulsion; propulsion system design and performance; green bipropellants and monopropellants and advances in additive manufacturing and their implications towards emerging liquid rocket engines. More Details

Missile Propulsion Design, Development, and System Engineering

8-9 July 2017
0800-1700 hrs

In this course, a system-level, integrated method is provided for missile propulsion design, development, and system engineering. More Details

Turbulence Modeling for Modern Industrial CFD NEW!

8-9 July 2017
0800-1700 hrs

This course covers the fundamentals of turbulence modeling, beginning with the various equation systems and modeling strategies. Theoretical backgrounds are presented for second-moment closure and practical models are presented and demonstrated. Simplifications and alternative eddy-viscosity modeling strategies are considered that are practical for every-day engineering calculations in an industrial environment. More Details
