PhD candidate Gary Yan and his supervisor Carl Ollivier-Gooch recently received third place for their submission to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)’s Aviation 2017 Student Paper Competition in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). AIAA is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the study and profession of aerospace.
Yan presented his paper at Aviation 2017, a forum that aims to bring the aviation industry together to address both present and future industry challenges and to act as a venue for researchers to present on aircraft design, air traffic management and operations, and aviation technologies among other subjects. Their paper, “Applications of the Unsteady Error Transport Equation on Unstructured Meshes” is a numerical study of using the error transport equation to obtain higher order accurate discretization error estimates and corrected solutions is performed for unsteady compressible flow.
