Mason is fielding two teams of students for the 2020 ASNE Promoting Electric Propulsion (PEP) competition, one team focused on hull design and the other on the propulsion system. The propulsion team, Barracuda, has produced this handy flier outlining how they are starting down their design path!
Moises is a senior studying Mechanical Engineering at George Mason University. He is currently working on doing high speed planing hull simulations to represent the Generic Prismatic Planing Hull (GPPH). After graduation, he plans on going to grad school to pursue a PhD in Aerospace Engineering. Outside of academia you can find him reading fiction novels, playing super smash bros, and working out.
As we get ready to kick off the 2019-2020 academic year, I’m thrilled to be settling into new lab space at GMU’s Potomac Science Center. While furniture is still on order, computing power has arrived along with enough SeaPerch and SeaGlide kits to last us through some kickoff STEM outreach activities. If you’re in the neighborhood, come by and visit: 1203 Potomac Science Center, 650 Mason Ferry Ave, Woodbridge VA!
Evan has been selected as a project lead in the newly formed Research and Development Execution Branch at Combatant Craft Division.
Davy Hansch completed an interesting study on the influence of water depth on roll damping and roll period. Read it online here.
