What is TFAWS?
TFAWS is an annual training and professional development workshop 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
This year’s conference theme is: Promoting Excellence in all Aspects of Design, Analysis, Build, and Test.

- International Guests Welcome
What are the benefits of attending TFAWS?
- Participants have the opportunity to share their work on the latest application of new and established
methods to aerospace missions, impart engineering lessons learned, and compare/contrast engineering practices.
- Annual sharing of knowledge, hands-on instruction in relevant state-of-the-art engineering analysis tools,
and seminars/short courses taught by the veterans in the thermal and fluids engineering community helps to
ensure that the expertise of the community is maintained.
- Networking at TFAWS gives each engineer an extensive network of contacts which serves as an excellent
source of advice and technical knowledge.
- TFAWS provides tremendous opportunities for enhancing collaboration between NASA centers, other government
agencies, industry, academia, and the international thermal and fluids engineering community.
