TFAWS 2020

What is TFAWS?

The Thermal and Fluids Analysis Workshop (TFAWS) is an annual training and professional development workshop that is designed to encourage knowledge sharing, professional development, and networking throughout the thermal and fluids engineering community within NASA and the aerospace community at large. The vision of TFAWS is to maintain continuity over time and between disciplines throughout the thermal and fluids engineering community. TFAWS 2020 will celebrate its 31st anniversary this year while being hosted by NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA.
