MAE Conference: Frontiers of Fluid and Thermal Sciences in Aerospace Engineering

William Sirignano
Friday, September 6, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, September 7, 2019 (All day)
The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center for the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering
In celebration of 60 years of scholarly contributions by William A. Sirignano, the Henry Samueli Endowed Chair in Engineering and longtime professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering

Abstract: Modern developments in fluid and thermal sciences have had a tremendous impact in many aspects of aerospace engineering. The aim of this conference is to bring together leading experts in key areas of fluid-thermal sciences as pertain to aerospace engineering. Day one will include invited talks from leading experts in the fields of fluid dynamics, combustion, thermal sciences and propulsion. Day two will feature a special government panel presentation and discussion with program managers from the National Science Foundation, Los Alamos National Lab, Air Force Office of Scientific Research and NASA on topics of their respective research portfolios.

The objectives are to review important past achievements, examine recent progress and help chart future directions. For more information and early registration (deadline Aug. 22), see the conference website:
