Conducting Acoustic Analysis of Aircraft Concepts (Sponsor: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration)

  • Role: Research Engineer
  • Project overview: Georgia Tech is one of NASA’s academia partners in its Sustainable Flight Demonstrator (SFD) Project. Georgia Tech role is to conduct system level analysis on performance, emissions, and Fleet impacts for the configurations in the project

Analyzing Acoustic Effects of Technology Introduction (Sponsor: Federal Aviation Administration)

  • Role: Research Engineer
  • Project overview: As an academic partner in the FAA’s Continuous Lower Energy, Emissions, and Noise (CLEEN) Program, Georgia Tech’s role is to model technology impacts on notional vehicle and propagate those results to Fleet level analysis

Simulating Acoustic performance of Notional Supersonic Transport (Sponsor: Federal Aviation Administration)

  • Role: Research Engineer
  • Project overview: Georgia Tech’s team developed notional supersonic transport aircraft to assess their performance, environmental, and Fleet level impact

Development of Predictive Models for the Aerodynamics of Notional Supersonic Transport (Sponsor: Federal Aviation Administration)

  • Role: Graduate Research Assistant
  • Project overview: This work sought to improve the fidelity of design space exploration for notional supersonic transport concepts, by leveraging Euler Based CFD with a viscous correction to explore a high volume of parametric geometries using CFD and surrogate models
