Opportunity Description

Aerodynamics MAV Research: Advisor(s): Christopher M. Kroninger, [Click Here To Join]; (410) 278.5690) Candidates are sought to conduct basic and applied research relevant to the mobility of soldier portable unmanned aerial system. Specifically, the opportunity will focus on the aerodynamics of both conventional and bio-inspired flight systems; developing understandings and approaches to enhance the efficiency of lifting and propulsive surfaces. The study will consider fixed, rotary and flapping wings operating in steady conditions and while subject to disturbances such as turbulence and those introduced by flow control. The research will be primarily experimental in nature but also informed by analytic modeling. Click here for more information
