Aerospace Testing Seminar (ATS): (Oct) hosted by Aerospace Corporation
AIAA: (Thermophysics (June) and Aerospace Sciences (January) are the most relevant for us) — highly academic in nature but usually good papers. Aerospace Sciences has been better than Thermophysics lately, in our opinion. (Thermophysics has had lots of
cancellations and less relevant papers).
ASME Heat Transfer: (July) American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Cocoa Beach Annual Conference on Composites, Materials, and Structures: (Jan) All ITAR sessions, mostly hypersonic and high-temperature materials. No Web site.
Cryocooler Conference (March/April)
Joint Army Navy NASA Air Force, JANNAF: (December: Combustion/Airbreathing Propulsion/Propulsion Systems Hazards/Modeling and Simulation Joint Subcommittee, & March: Nondestructive Evaluation/Rocket Nozzle Technology/Structures and Mechanical Behavior Joint Subcommittee)
AIAA / ICES, International Conference on Environmental Systems: (June) – usually heavily international, less academic.
SAMPE, Society For the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering: (May/Sept) Materials & processing oriented. Heavily populated with materials vendors: carbon fibers, aluminum – metal matrix, etc. Papers are not as academic, very practical.
Spacecraft Thermal Control Technology Workshop: (March) hosted by Aerospace Corporation
TFAWS: (Aug/Sept) Thermal and fluids workshop hosted by a NASA Center (hosting rotates by year), offers software training, short courses, vendor displays and paper sessions. A great way to meet others in the thermal/fluids community.
