0800-17004th AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop (PAW04)Room: TBD
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.

 

0800-1700AIAA Complex Aerospace Systems Exchange (CASE) WorkshopRoom: TBD
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

Are you thinking in systems? Find out about this fascinating topic in an interactive workshop that covers systems thinking for addressing complexity in the development of modern aerospace systems. Applying a systems approach provides insight into the unexpected ways a system will behave due to complexity. Learn how to deal with scale, interdependencies, and interconnectedness in large systems. Using multiple points-of-view in design gives practicing engineers and leaders a more comprehensive perspective for understanding and manipulating system properties.

0800-1700Emerging Concepts in High Speed Air-Breathing PropulsionRoom: TBD
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.

0800-1700Fundamentals of Gas Turbine Engine Aerothermodynamics, Performance, and Systems IntegrationRoom: TBD
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

Over two days this interactive short course provides carefully selected essential material on gas turbine engine aerothermodynamics, performance, and systems integration. The pedagogical treatment with illustrative examples and flavored with practical considerations will make the course interesting and useful to both early career and experienced engineers. After completing the course the participants will have the knowledge to propel themselves in studying other gas turbine topics.

0800-1700Liquid Atomization, Spray, and Fuel Injection in Aircraft Gas Turbine EnginesRoom: TBD
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

This course provides an understanding of the processes of liquid atomization and spray formation and relating this understanding to fuel injection systems and emission of pollutants in modern engines. The approach in this course is to build sufficient background through introduction of a consistent and widely-used terminology in sprays and atomization. Justifications, reasons, and purposes of the liquid atomization and spray formation are discussed along with presentation of different designs of atomizers and nozzles employed in various industries. Characterization methods of sprays are discussed after the definition and meaning of different averaged liquid droplet diameters are touched on. Droplet size measurement devices are covered and examples are shown.

0800-1700Liquid Rocket Engines: Fundamentals, Green Propellants, and Emerging TechnologiesRoom: TBD
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.

0800-1700Propulsion of Flapping-wing Micro Air Vehicles (FMAVs)Room: TBD
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

This course focuses on the energy and power system of flapping-wing micro air vehicles (FMAVs). The principle, structure, and modeling of the FMAV propulsion system, which is inspired by the flight mechanisms of natural flying creatures, will be introduced, and the latest theoretical and experimental research results of the propulsion of FMAVs will be discussed.

0800-1700Enabling Technologies and Analysis Methods for More-, Hybrid-, and All-Electric AircraftRoom: TBD
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.

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.
