Accelerating the Aircraft Icing Certification Process Using Simulation

Icing on aircraft surfaces, appendages, sensors and its impact on aircraft engines is a safety critical aspect of aircraft design that impacts the whole supply chain. Achieving regulatory certification is a complex and time consuming process involving simulation, icing tunnels and flight testing. Recent regulatory changes and industry focus around high altitude ice crystals and Supercooled Large Droplets have further challenged the design process and the time to market for new aircraft and technology.

Friction Reduction: Finding New Gains in Powertrain Efficiency

In conjunction with SAE International Facing the super-stringent U.S. and European CO2 emission requirements for 2020 and beyond, powertrain engineers need to squeeze every last tenth of a mile-per-gallon of efficiency out of new engines, transmissions, and drivelines. Reducing internal friction on rotating and reciprocating components, as well as across systems, is now a major design and engineering priority. New technology solutions in the critical areas of powertrain systems design, bearings, and seals are appearing as a result. This webcast’s panel of experts will examine these issues and offer solutions. Webcast attendees will be invited to interact with the experts during the Q&A portion of the 60-minute webcast.

Medical 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing: Going From Why to How

3D printing has been utilized in the medical industry for over 20 years. In recent years, the number of applications, utilization, and utility have increased exponentially. This increase has been driven by two key factors: (1) crossing the chasm from “how to print” to “why adopt 3D printing and additive manufacturing”, and (2) the dramatically increased selection of technologies and materials that meet the needs of medical professionals.

Kurt Leucht, Command & Control Software Developer, Kennedy Space Center, Florida

Project Lead Kurt Leucht has spent recent months testing the software of NASA’s “Swarmie” robots. Using an evolving genetic algorithm, the robots operate as connected, ant-like swarms. The technology could prove to be valuable as humans explore harsh, remote, or inaccessible locations where teleoperation and resource gathering is required.
