Opportunity Description

Rotor Morphing Technologies For Improved Rotorcraft Aeromechanics Advisor: Kang, Hao [Click Here To Join]; 410.278.6811) Improving vehicle performance has always been one of the most vital aspects of rotorcraft design. It is, however, the most challenging area in rotorcraft research and design due to the complexity of the rotorcraft aeromechanics and the large range of operation of the rotor blade. The inherent physics of flight near the edge of the envelope require design compromises for current rotorcraft. Innovations must be made in the design of the rotor system in order to improve the performance of a rotorcraft while, at the same time, maintaining its stability, low vibration, and safety. The goal of this project is to addresses the rotor morphing concepts to significantly improve rotorcraft performance. Efforts will focus on the analysis and development of rotor morphing concepts that have the potential to significantly improve rotorcraft performance and aeromechanics and that also have the potential for realistic application in the near future.

About Us

Grooming future leaders in science and technology requires enhancing the skills, knowledge and experience of workers early in their careers. To that end, ORAU (Oak Ridge Associated Universities) assists in connecting the best and most diverse students, recent graduates, faculty and professionals with world-class fellowships, internships and jobs, whether in national laboratories, research institutions, federal government offices or private sector R&D departments.

ORAU works with agencies such as the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. We work with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to place recent graduates in full-time and part-time jobs in the Office of Research and Development at EPA under the National Student Services Contract. ORAU also works with Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, Toxicology, and more.

If you are ready to take the next step in your career path, then we are ready to help you!
