TFAWS 2019

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 2019 will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year while being hosted by NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton Roads, VA. This year’s theme will be “30 Years of TFAWS: Power of the Past, Force of the Future“.
