Center of Excellence for Integrated Thermal Management of Aerospace Vehicles

Event Date: August 6, 2014
The School of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue's College of Engineering, in conjunction with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), is pleased to announce the formation of the Center of Excellence for Integrated Thermal Management of Aerospace Vehicles.

The School of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue’s College of Engineering, in conjunction with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), are pleased to announce the formation of the Center of Excellence for Integrated Thermal Management of Aerospace Vehicles. This innovative Center of Excellence is a multi-university effort, involving the collaboration of Purdue University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Texas at Austin, University of Dayton, and Wright State University. The Center will be led by Professor Timothy Fisher, James G. Dwyer Professor of Mechanical Engineering, from Purdue University.

The Center of Excellence will be launched on August 7-8, 2014 in Dayton, Ohio with a kick-off meeting and a technical short course. Both events will be held at Tec^Edge Innovation & Collaboration Center in Dayton, Ohio.

The day-long technical short course on August 8th, Verification, Validation & Uncertainty Quantification in Complex Engineered Systems, will cover the latest advances in verification, validation, sensitivity, analysis, and uncertainty quantification. The course will benefit all practicing engineers who design and build complex engineered systems, and who use a combination of experiments and simulations in the design cycle.
