Dr. George Huang, professor of mechanical engineering, has received two prestigious awards from the Royal Aeronautical Society for his research. They received the Specialist Silver Award, which is conferred for exceptional work that has led to significant advances in specialist disciplines in the aerospace industry; and the Ackroyd Stuart Prize, for the best paper published by the Society during the previous calendar year in the propulsion subject group.
The paper is titled “Comprehensive Validation of an Intermittency Transport Model for Transitional Low-Pressure Turbine Flows,” and was published in the March 2005 issue of the Aeronautical Journal. This work was performed under cooperative agreement with NASA Glenn Research Center , as part of the Low Pressure Turbine Flow Physics Program.
Dr. Bora Suzen, former assistant research professor in mechanical engineering and now an assistant professor in aerospace and mechanical engineering at North Dakota State University at Fargo , was also honored with the two awards.
