SUSU Works with Materials for Aerospace, Electric Power, and Military Industries

South Ural State University

One key area of development in metallurgy today is the creation of new materials with especially high density, which can be used in the aerospace, aviation, military, and electric power industries. Researchers from South Ural State University are working with materials that are promising for all of these fields.

At 3,836 mph, which way does the air flow?

University at Buffalo

UB aerospace engineer James Chen publishes a paper that extends classical kinetic theory into high-speed aerodynamics, including hypersonic speed, which begins at 3,836 mph or roughly five times the speed of sound. The new study and others by Chen in influential academic journals attempt to solve long-standing problems associated with high-speed aerodynamics.

Innovative 'Structural Battery' Nearly Doubles Drone Air Time

Case Western Reserve University

'Structural battery' drone wings developed by a team led by Case Western Reserve University in Ohio allowed for a total flight time-- nearly three hours--that nearly doubled the craft's previous air time. The Feb. 22 launch at Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport was funded by Ohio and federal funds.

The Speedy Secrets of Mako Sharks – ‘Cheetahs of the Ocean’

American Physical Society (APS)

To investigate how shortfin mako sharks achieve their impressive speeds, researchers tested real sharkskin samples, using digital particle image velocimetry. They discovered that a “passive bristling” capability of the microscopic surface geometry of the shark’s scales controlled flow separation, which causes pressure drag -- the most influential cause of drag on aircraft. The work will be described at the 2019 APS March Meeting, and could lead to new designs to reduce drag on aircraft.

Making Flight Safer With the “Internet of Airplanes”

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute computer scientists Stacy Patterson and Carlos Varela have teamed up to develop a prototype framework, the “Virtual Sky” platform, to fuse and analyze flight sensor data correctly, reliably, and quickly. Virtual Sky would serve as a model extension of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Next Generation Air Transportation System, a sweeping modernization of the National Airspace System that includes greater use of computer and satellite systems in air traffic elements like communication, navigation, weather, information management, and tracking.
