Two CETA Mechanical Engineering students, senior undergraduate Jonathan Brown and graduate student Charlie DeLorenzo '18, both presented posters at the 2018 Connecticut Space Grant Consortium Expo held at the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks, CT.
Jonathan Brown presented his work, "Supersonic Inlet Noise Radiation Study" which was funded as an Undergraduate Research Fellowship. Jonathan completed this work over the summer of 2018 and also presented his work at NASA Glenn Research Center. He is continuing this work has submitted a paper to the AIAA/CEAS Aeroacoustics Conference to be held in Delft, Netherlands in May of 2019. This work was supervised by Dr. Paul Slaboch, assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering.
Charlie presented his work titled, "Effect of Aft Rotor on Forward Rotor Blade Wakes in Open Rotor Propulsion Systems," was funded a Faculty Research Grant awarded to Dr. Slabcoh. This work was published and presented as part of the ASME Turbo Expo held in June 2018 in Oslo, Norway. Jared Deleon '18 was also a coauthor on that paper. Please see attached paper for further details on this work.
