Daily Agenda

Saturday, 7 July-Sunday, 8 July, 2018

0800-17004th AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop (PAW04)Room: Caprice 1-4
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

Organized by the AIAA Inlets, Nozzles & Propulsion Systems Integration Technical Committee.

The focus of the workshop will be on assessing the accuracy of CFD in obtaining air breathing system performance and flow structure to include nozzle forces, plume surveys, subsonic inlet recovery and distortion, and high-speed inlet performance.

 

0800-1700Emerging Concepts in High Speed Air-Breathing PropulsionRoom: Salon F-G
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

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 (Air Turbo Ramjet Engine with eXpander cycle) and the air-breathing rocket engine, which rely on pre-cooling the air with heat exchangers. Additional emerging cycles include pressure gain cycles (Pulse Detonation Engines and Rotating Detonation Engines), Mass Injection Pre-Combustion Cooling (MIPCC), 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 an understanding of how to apply them and what performance advantages they might have.

0800-1700Liquid Rocket Engines: Fundamentals, Green Propellants, and Emerging TechnologiesRoom: Salon D-E
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

Liquid propulsion systems are critical to launch vehicle and spacecraft performance, and mission success. This two-day course, taught by a team of government, industry and international experts, 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 toward emerging liquid rocket engines. In addition to the popular rocket engine testing module, this year, the course will also include a module on combustion instability and a module on propellant management systems.

0800-1700Enabling Technologies and Analysis Methods for More-, Hybrid-, and All-Electric AircraftRoom: Salon B-C
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

This short course is designed for engineers in the aerospace industry who would like to learn more about the electrical technologies that enable More-Electric and Hybrid-Electric Aircraft. Studies show that significant reduction in the mission fuel burn can be obtained with electric/hybrid-electric propulsion on commercial transport aircraft without compromising payload, range, or cruise speed. The course will introduce the fundamental concepts and trade-offs involved in the design of the electrical systems for such airplanes.

1600-1800Meet the EmployersRoom: Junior Ballroom C
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

AIAA’s “Meet the Employers” event at the 2018 AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum offers students and young professional attendees the opportunity to meet AIAA corporate members. This is a fun and dynamic environment where students and professionals interact with organizations regarding employment opportunities. 

 

Participating companies/organizations will present a brief organizational overview and opportunities available, then have follow-on discussions with the attendees. Organizations will host a table and attendees will switch every 10 minutes.

 

 Past participants have included:

 

  • Aurora Flight Sciences
  • The Boeing Company
  • Gulfstream 
  • Lockheed Martin Corporation 
  • Northrop Grumman
  • United Launch Alliance

 

1800-1930Student Welcome Reception Room: West Foyer
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

 

Mingle with your peers and walk away knowing a few familiar faces before the Forum even begin. Hear from AIAA leadership about the opportunities available to you as an AIAA student member. This reception provides you with the opportunity to meet your fellow students and learn more.

SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

Additive enables complex designs without added costs. Discussion will center around nuances of additive manufacturing and how this could transform new product design and service legacy fleets. As the technology progresses, new industrialization opportunities could enable full-scale production capabilities resulting in differentiation through additive. Imagine, what will the aerospace industry look like in 3, 5, 10 years as part of this manufacturing transformation — and when should companies start making investment decisions to support their growth roadmaps?

0800-1700AIAA/IEEE Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium (EATS)
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

The aerospace industry has set ambitious goals for the next three generations of commercial transport aircraft to accommodate rapid growth in emerging markets and ensure sustainability of air travel. One approach being explored to meet these targets is non-traditional aircraft propulsion using electric, turboelectric or hybrid-electric powertrains. 

Recent workshops by the IEEE and AIAA have identified the need to bring together electrical engineers and aerospace experts as the industry looks to more electric propulsion technologies for future aircraft. For 2018, the AIAA Aircraft Electric Propulsion and Power Working Group and the IEEE Transportation Electrification Community are collaborating to organize a new two-day symposium to address these issues.
