Message from the Chair


Joaquin Castro

AIAA High Speed Air Breathing Propulsion Technical Committee




Dear AIAA HSABPTC Members,


As we welcome the new 2012 year is hard to believe that our HSABP TC will reach its fourth
birthday in May, and that once again we are all coming together at ASM, this time in Nashville
Tennessee in the second week of January.


I never thought that five years after I joined the AIAA Air Breathing Propulsion
Organizational Evolution Working Group (ABP OEWG), aiming to see how we could expand the
role of Air Breathing Propulsion within AIAA, that I would chair our High Speed Air Breathing
Propulsion Technical Committee (HSABP TC) for two years.


Our ABP OEWG worked long and hard to ensure that evolving the ABP TC into is current
configuration of three TCs (Turbines, High Speed, and Integration) was the right thing to do.
Today, four years after the inception of the new structure, the evidence bears that we took the
right actions. We have three vibrant TCs, each focusing in their technical areas while still
working together and leveraging our strengths and membership. As a result of our
reorganization, we have almost tripled the number of AIAA members that are actively
participating in Air Breathing Propulsion activities.


I am proud to have been part of this effort, however the credit should go to the many
individuals that worked hard to make this happen; among them I like to recognize our leader
Jeff
Hamstra

the AIAA Director for Air Breathing Propulsion, and Marty Bradley the first
chairman of the HSABP TC.


Focusing on our TC we have our share of achievements:

• We continue to play a key role in the organizing of the
ASM and JPC Conferences
, working
to improve the quality of the papers in our sessions. Once again the credit goes to the TC
members that have led these efforts over the years.

• Our website and newsletter have evolved into a resource for our membership. Here again,
Dora Musielak, our
Communication Subcommittee
Chair has done a wonderful job leading
and carrying the brunt of this effort.

• Our membership continues to grow, mature and evolve thanks in no small part to
Venkat

Tangirala

our
Membership Subcommittee
Chair


Balu

Sekar
, the Chair of our
Liaison Subcommittee
has leveraged our resources leading the
initial effort and working with the
HyTASP

PC to create the Hypersonic Systems and
Technologies Award, a new AIAA Award recognizing contributions in the high speed field. In
addition to our ongoing efforts with the
HyTASP

PC we are also working with JANNAF and a
number of other AIAA TCs to develop and hold joint sessions. A number of our members are
also involved in local AIAA Chapter activities.

Message from the Chair
(continued from p. 3)



• Under
Jinho

Lee’s leadership we continue to support the Air Breathing Propulsion
Honors
and Awards

other efforts like the Air Breathing Propulsion Award, the Gordon Oates Award
and the Best Paper Awards.

• Dan Kirk as the Chair of our
Education

Subcommittee continues to lead our outreach efforts
on STEM and K through 12 and higher education; along with the other Air breathing Propulsion
TCs. Our Education Subcommittees have also revitalized the Engine Design Completion by
joining forces with IGTI and continued to offer our propulsion short courses as an adjunct to
AIAA Conferences.


There is a lot to be proud of but there is a lot of work that remains to be done. We have a
handful of very active members. Not just the Subcommittee Chairs I mentioned above, there are
a few others too. But I would like to see all of our members fully engaged in our activities.


I would also like to see our TC become more of a driving force in influencing the future of
our technology and making sure that the Air Breathing High Speed Propulsion voice is heard.
We must continue to execute and excel in our most important TC activities: Supporting the
furthering of our technology and organizing and executing of the Air Breathing High Speed
Propulsion sessions of the ASM and JPC Conference as well as work with our sister
HyTASP

PC in support of the
HyTASP

Conference.


As I complete my tenure as Chair of the HSABP TC, I leave the leadership of our TC in able
hands. Ryan Starkey, will assume the Chair role for our TC in May of 2012. Ryan brings a
significant amount of AIAA experience and an academic perspective. He is a respected
member of our Hypersonic Community, a great advocate of high speed propulsion and flight,
and a good leader.


However, I won’t be far. I will continue working with you as a member of our TC and help in
the Steering Subcommittee. I look forward to continue supporting our efforts to make powered
high speed flight, and its propulsion, a reality.


Best regards.


Joaquin H. Castro

Dr. Claudio Bruno, HSABPTC International Member, retired from the University of Rome
in November 2011. At the same time,
he was

invited to join the UTRC team and lead
important work in Combustion and Supersonic Combustion. Professor Bruno accepted
and is now in East Hartford, CT.


Congratulations, Professor Bruno, and Welcome to the States
!

A special HSABP technical session at JPC 2012!


"State
-
of
-
the
-
Art Numerical Modeling of Turbulent Combustion in Hypersonic Flows"


We’ve organized a session to explore the current state
-
of
-
the
-
art of the theory and practice of the
numerical modeling of turbulent combustion in hypersonic flows. The scope of the session is
envisioned to include research with respect to the form of the governing equations chosen to
solve, the closure methodologies and models employed, as well as numerical methods utilized to
discretize

and evolve the governing equations. Special emphasis is sought with respect to flows
with strong shocks and finite rate effects.

Looking Ahead to 2012 with Optimism


Dora Musielak, Ph.D.

Communications Chair

AIAA High Speed Air Breathing Propulsion Technical Committee




January is always a time of reflection, a month when we assess what we did the past year and
contemplate what we can do to improve in the future. At this time we make plans and draw a list
of resolutions for the months ahead. And while 2011 was difficult for many of us, I'd like to focus
on what we can accomplish in the new year with the knowledge that brighter and more
productive days are coming our way.


HSABPTC Communication Initiatives for 2012:




Experts Directory
-

Creating an expertise directory is a key step in the corporate
knowledge management process (to enable knowledge seeker to reach the HSABP experts).



Position Paper
“HSAB Propulsion: An Assessment of Our National Capability”
-

To leave a
legacy for future TC members, and to compile the state
-
of
-
the art for the ABP community at
large.



Education Outreach
-

Prepare materials adequate for K
-
12 students. Let’s inspire the
future propulsion engineers!



Professional Short Courses
-

Propose new topics and organize new courses.



Special Technical Sessions
-

Conceive and organize new invited speaker sessions.


I believe that, although high speed air breathing propulsion met some technical challenges in
2011, we'll see advances and growth to ensure the technology we develop will mature and, one
day soon, we will finally see vehicles zipping through the blue sky at hypersonic speeds.


Today, I want to wish everyone in the HSABPTC a happy and prosperous New Year!
