Thank you for attending TFAWS 2014! Please join us next year at TFAWS 2015, to be hosted by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center located in Greenbelt, MD. More information about TFAWS 2015 will be posted in the coming months.

Online proceedings for TFAWS 2014 are now posted here! Contact us with any questions or updates.

What is TFAWS?

The Thermal and Fluids Analysis Workshop (TFAWS) is an annual training and professional development workshop that is currently celebrating its 25th year. TFAWS 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. This year’s conference theme is 25 Years of Thermal and Fluids Innovation and Collaboration.
