NEW for 2020 – SAE Aero Design Skillshop
SAE International and sponsors are invested in SAE Aero Design students’ education. At SAE Aero Design East in 2020, Lockheed Martin has joined forces with MathWorks to offer a skillshop on Friday, March 6. This skillshop is targeted to help students gain expertise on improving performance for 2021, so Junior, Sophomore, and Freshman teammates should consider attending. Two sessions with limited seats (26 each) are available and registration is now open. Below is the skillshop description (All 3 topics will be covered):
Success in SAE Aero Design – How Modeling and Simulation can help!
Modeling and Simulation help you gain insights into your design while saving time and money! Learn how MathWorks tools can help you model systems, optimize and tune designs and win! This session will introduce you to MathWorks tools like MATLAB, Simulink and Aerospace Blockset for applications like vehicle modeling, sensitivity analysis and mission simulations.
Presenter: Connell D’Souza, Student Competition Technical Evangelist, MathWorks
Takeoff - Modeling the Physics That Separates Airplanes from Cars
Elevate your performance analysis with data! Learn to use MATLAB to incorporate your performance data into a physics-based simulation of acceleration, rollout, and takeoff. In a competition that encourages teams to maximize their payloads, higher fidelity tools and understanding will show you just how far you can push the envelope!
Presenter: David Moroniti, SAE Aero Design Rules Committee
Mass Properties - Weight Management and Optimization, the Ultimate Balancing Act
Learn about and get comfortable with one of the most critical properties required for successful aircraft design. Understanding weight and mass in aircraft design will help you design efficient and effective vehicles. Mass properties influence all aspects of aircraft design, control, manufacture, and maintenance. Be prepared to tackle the, sometimes confounding world of weight balance and the effects on stability. Be the weight czar on your next project!
Presenter: Rick Buickel, Mechanical Design Chief Engineer, LMCO
Students should only register for ONE session!
