RHRC EXHIBITS AT AIAA MEETING IN RENO

 

Jan. 6-9, 2003 - Rolling Hills Research Corporation participated in the 41st Aerospace Sciences Meeting of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) in Reno, Nevada, this week.  RHRC employees Dr. Michael Kerho and Mr. Dustin Bouch presented research results in two technical papers.

 

Mike's paper was entitled "Enhanced Airfoil Design Incorporating Boundary Layer Mixing Devices."  The paper describes RHRC's successful efforts over the last 3 years to develop natural laminar flow airfoils with greatly enhanced performance.

 

Dustin's paper was entitled "Investigation of a Hartmann-Sprenger Tube for Passive Heating of Scramjet Injectant Gases."  This work details work conducted at NASA Langley in conjunction with George Washington University.

 

RHRC also displayed the Model 0710 University Desktop Water Tunnel in the AIAA Exhibit hall.  The water tunnel was used to demonstrate the benefits of hands on experimentation for fluid mechanics students.

 

 

Special thanks to RHRC's friend and supporter, Dr. Abdi Khodadoust, who provided digital photos from the AIAA meeting.  Also, congratulations are in order for Abdi since he was recently promoted to the position of Aerodynamics Lead for the Space Launch Initiative at the Boeing Phantom Works.  Good luck Abdi!
