Clark School Students Win AIAA Awards

Several Clark School aerospace engineering students took home awards at the Region I Young Professional, Student and Education Conference (YPSE-09) at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in November.

Graduate Student Papers

1st place:

Camilo Aguilera, "Scramjet Mixing Control Using Fin-Guided Fuel Injection." (Advisors: K.H. Yu, B. Pang, Amardip Ghosh, and Allen Winkelmann).

Honorable Mention:

Nicholas L. Wilson, "Performance Robustness of a Magnetorehological Seat Suspension to Temperature Variations."

Undergraduate Student Papers

1st place:

Heather Bradshaw, "Morphing Space Suit Design: A Range-of-Motion Study."

3rd place:

Siddarth Kolluru Venkata, "Active Flow Control: Flow Over Bluff Bodies Using Synthetic Jet Actuators." University of Maryland, College Park.

Honorable Mention:

Andrew Ellsbury, Conni Cialerglio, "Long Range Link Testing of Commercial off the Shelf Radio Modules for Stratospheric Communications,"

Laura Meyer, Connie Cialerglio, Andrew Ellsberry, Jarred Young, "Cansat Competition: Small Aerospace Systems Design."

YPSE-09 provided young professionals and students the opportunity to present a work in progress, and network with their peers in the aerospace industry. The conference is also a place where more established professionals (those not in the AIAA Young Professional designation of 35 years old and younger) can share their broad experience with rising professionals. Recruiting and information tables by several local companies were present at the event.

Universities represented in the student presentation competition included: Virginia Tech, West Virginia University, Cornell University, University of Wisconson at Madison, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Maryland, College Park.
