1 Graduate Program in Aerospace Engineering & Engineering Mechanics for GE ACE Students Prof. San-Mou (S.M.) Jeng Director of Graduate Studies School of Aerospace Systems 513-556-3361, Graduate Coordinator: Ms. Julie Muenchen 513-556-0635, Dept. Graduate Secretary: Ms. Brenda Smith 513-556-3548,

2 Admission Requirements No prerequisite requirements for students with BS or higher in most engineering areas: –Aerospace or Aero/Astro –Mechanical –Engineering Mechanics or Engineering Science –Chemical –Civil (might require review of Dynamics) –Electrical (might require background courses depending on area)

3 Technical Specialization Areas Three areas of specialization within Dept.: –Fluids & Propulsion: Combustion, propulsion systems, propulsion components, CFD, experimental fluids –Solids & Structures: Nondestructive evaluation (NDE), material behavior, finite element analysis –Dynamics & Control: Analytical dynamics, simulation of dynamics, control algorithm analysis and development, planning, diagnostics

4 School of Aerospace Systems Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics Project (Non-Thesis) Option 10 semester hours transferred from GE for A & B GE-ACE courses. 21 semester credits completed at UC consisting of one full-time semester on-campus (15 semester credits) one part-time semester Course requirements will be: 12 Major Credits  3 Minor Credits 3 Tech Electives  2 Research (final project) 1 Seminar All Courses must be 6000+ or higher All courses taken at UC must be program approved courses (see handbook for requirements) Graduate Program Director Dr. San-Mou Jeng – 556-3361, Graduate Program Coordinator Julie Muenchen – 556-0635,

5 Non-Thesis & Thesis Options Most (but certainly not all) GE ACE students choose the non-thesis option: –Requires 2-credit “Final Project” –Project supervised and approved by either AsE/EM faculty member(s) : – Signed “final” project completion form (by 2 UC faculty members) required to graduate, no defense or GE review board

6 Majors and Minors Each major area has required classes for MS: Dynamics & Control: Required: Modern Control and Analytical Dynamics Plus 2 3-credit graduate courses in Dynamics and Control area (some can be from other Dept’s) Fluids & Propulsion: Required (3 out of 4): Combustion, Advanced Propulsion, Compressible Flow and Thermodynamics, and Viscous Flow and Heat Transfer Plus 1 3-credit graduate course in Fluids & Propulsion Solids & Structures: Required: Elasticity Plus 3 3-credit graduate courses in Solids and Structures Minor area:  Usually another technical area in the Dept., but sometimes outside Dept. (permission required), F&P MS majors can use F&P as minor  Number of credits outside Dept. is limited (6 for MS, often waived by petition to 9)

7 PhD Program Automatic acceptance of our own MS students Requires 92 credits beyond BS degree: –MS degree counts as 30 credits (30 course, 15 thesis) –Dissertation is 30 credits, Dept. Seminar is 2 –Coursework beyond MS degree: 30 credits - C course Requires passing PhD Qualifying Exam: –Written exam (8 hrs open book on major area & math) plus oral presentation (summary of review of selected papers plus questioning by area faculty) –Maximum of two chances –Time limit on passing – Two years from entrance to PhD program

8 Current GEAE R&D at UC Aerospace Engineering Department GEAE/UC Aerospace Centers (Ohio Third Frontier) –(GEAE) to establish a GEAE research and development center and –(UC AsE) to establish UC Center for Intelligent Propulsion in Advanced Combustion, CMC, Component life and Thermal Management Establishment of University of Cincinnati Research Center (UCRI) GE University Strategic Alliance (USA) Program in: –Jet Noise Prediction & Reduction –Turbomachinery CFD Methods Direct funding from GE to UC Aerospace Engineering Department (around $2M in 2010-2011 academic year)

9 School of Aerospace Systems School Director- Awatef Hamed Fluids and Propulsion: –Shaaban Abdallah –Peter Disimile –Kirti Ghia –Ephraim Gutmark –Awatef Hamed –San-Mou Jeng –Jong Guen Lee –Paul Orkwis –Mark Turner Dynamics and Controls: –Kelly Cohen –Grant Schaffner –Bruce Walker Solids and Structures –G. R. Liu –Peter B. Nagy –Francesco Simonetti

10 Jet Noise Research Facility Features: Supersonic core flow, sonic fan flow Core flow temperature range: Ambient to 350°F Mass flow rate: Up to 8.5 lbs/sec Run times: Up to 20 minutes Rapid changes of nozzle geometry possible Unduplicated among university-based facilities Developed by Prof. Ephraim Gutmark and his students in Aerospace Engineering with support from the GE University Strategic Alliance (USA) program. Models the flow characteristics of modern turbofan engines. Used to validate and develop innovative concepts for reducing noise from jet engines.

11 flaw detection and characterization residual stress assessment thermal and mechanical relaxation high- and low-cycle fatigue creep damage, plasticity corrosion, erosion hardening, inclusions, segregations adhesive and cohesive strength thermal barrier coatings, etc. Inspection Problems: Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) Profs. Peter, Francesco Simonetti, & G. R. Liu, UC Aerospace Engr. NDE technologies are required to safely exploit the full service live of fracture critical components! ultrasonic acoustic emission eddy current magnetic thermography thermo-electric radiography (X-ray) liquid penetrant, etc. Inspection Methods: Graduate Courses: AEEM-727 Nondestructive Testing AEEM-728 Introduction to Ultrasonics AEEM-729 Ultrasonic NDE AEEM-974 Electromagnetic NDE
