12Awards Available from AIAA Senior Member Recipients -Individuals who have demonstrated a successful professional practice in the arts, sciences, or technology of aeronautics or astronautics for the equivalent of at least eight years, or who have at least eight years of continuous professional membership in AIAA.Associate Fellow Recipients -Individuals who have accomplished or been in charge of important engineering or scientific work, or have done original work of outstanding merit, or have otherwise made outstanding contributions to the arts, sciences, or technology of aeronautics or astronautics.Fellow Recipients -Individuals of distinction in aeronautics or astronautics who have made notable valuable contributions to the arts, sciences, or technology of aeronautics or astronautics.
13Awards Available from AIAA Structures, Structural Dynamics, & Materials Award Recipients -Established in 1967, the Structures, Structural Dynamics, & Materials Award is presented to an individual who has been responsible for an outstanding sustained technical or scientific contribution in aerospace structures, structural dynamics, or materials. It is not presented in the years that the Walter J. and Angeline H. Crichlow Trust Prize, AIAA-ASC James H. Starnes Award or Ashley Award for Aeroelasticity are presented. This biennial award (even numbered years) is generally presented at the AIAA Science and Technology (SCITECH) Forum.Ashley Award for Aeroelasticity -The AIAA Ashley Award for Aeroelasticity recognizes outstanding contributions to the understanding and application of aeroelastic phenomena. It commemorates the accomplishments of Prof. Holt Ashley, who dedicated his professional life to the advancement of aerospace sciences and engineering and had a profound impact on the fields of aeroelasticity, unsteady aerodynamics, aeroservoelasticity and multidisciplinary optimization.
14Awards Available from AIAA Walter J. and Angeline H. Crichlow Trust Prize RecipientsThe Walter J. and Angeline H. Crichlow Trust Prize was established in 1994 and is presented to a single nominee (which can be an individual or small team of up to 4 contributing individuals) for a specific achievement or body of work (perhaps extending over a period of years) that became significant during the immediate past 15 years. The Prize is presented every four years generally at the AIAA Science and Technology Forum (SCITECH).

18Website Outreach Project Status DVD has been converted to a website :I have been working with Lisa Bacon at AIAA to get links and intro pages established on the AIAA Education webpages.The website is linked to the SDTC webpage, and is updated to the current site.Working with Media Fusion to update a couple errors on the website.All bills related to the website have been paid.
20Education Courses update Structural Dynamics class cancelled due to lack of registrants.Other class offerings also cancelledProblem may be associated with funding rather than lack of interest.Perhaps interest will be greater for next SDM which will have more participants who may not already consider themselves well versed in SD.
21Educational OutreachOur Outreach Event in Boston went very well, and we had about 100 students attend.I have not heard from Stephanie or Andy about an Outreach Event for SciTech, so I assume due to the condense schedule we will skip having one this year.
22SDTC Liaison Subcommittee Report SDTC MeetingHampton VaFriday, 11 October 2013
24Structures TC Liaison, Bruce Willis The Fall 2013 StrTC meeting was held on 17 September, 2013, at Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, TX.Reconvening their Procedures Subcommittee - Revise their TC guidebook to document TC processes and procedures under the NEM.Establishing a NEM Subcommittee – A transition team to get NEM information and reminders to the TC.Dr. Alex Bogdanovich will be the 2015 SDM representative.Need a liaison to the new Spacecraft Structures TC (formerly Gossamer PC). Disappointment expressed about new name causing confusion and taking from Structures TC. TAC ignored suggestion to add “Lightweight”. Sergio Pellegrino is the Chair of the SSTC and is planning to hold their TC meeting on a different night from StrTC & SDTC so those folks can visit (goodwill gesture).Education Subcommittee completed a student Design Competition, and is planning an Outreach event for SciTech 2014.
25Applied Aerodynamics TC Liaison, Ray GordnierWorkshop Briefings:John Vassberg discussed the Drag Prediction Workshop success. DPW5 session at this conference is Jan 7th with multiple workshop participants involved with each presentation. Rich Wahls and Kelly Laflin are his co-chairs.Jeff Slotnick reported on the High-Lift Prediction Workshop. The first workshop was in 2010, the 2nd is the weekend before the San Diego conference. DLR high lift configuration. They are anticipating 75+ people to attend, and may need a larger space.Kenrick Waithe discussed status and plans of the Low Boom Prediction Workshop occurring Jan 11th, See his PowerPoint presentation for details.
26Design Engineering TC Liaison, Ken Griffin The Design Engineering Tech Committee is now in the process of ramping back up on their education outreach to perhaps include a scholarship. This had lapsed while they compiled their newest (out this last spring) revision (Revision 6) to the Aerospace Engineers Design Guide.
27AHS Liaison, Bill Welsh AeroVelo Team Wins AHS International’s 33-Year-Old Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter CompetitionALEXANDRIA, Virginia – July 11, 2013 – AHS International, the world’s premierprofessional vertical flight technical society, congratulates AeroVelo, Inc. for winning its Igor I.Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Competition for the first time since the Society establishedit 33 years ago.A panel of vertical flight technical experts – the AHS International Human Powered HelicopterCompetition Committee – thoroughly reviewed the design and flight testing of Toronto, OntariobasedAeroVelo’s Atlas human powered helicopter, as well as data from its June 13, 2013 flight.Based on that review, the committee has verified that the Atlas flight met all of the requirementsto win the competition and its US$250,000 prize. AeroVelo’s Dr. Todd Reichert piloted andpedaled the Atlas on that flight inside The Soccer Centre in Vaughan, Ontario.The requirements to win the AHS Sikorsky prize were for an aircraft using only human power tofly for at least 60 seconds, reach an altitude of at least 3 meters (9.8 feet) and remain hoveringover a 10 by 10 meter (32.8 by 32.8 foot) area. The full competition regulations, as well as pastnews updates, videos and other information, are available on the AHS International website,“The AHS Sikorsky Prize challenged the technical community to harness teamwork, technicalskills and cutting edge technologies to meet requirements that were on the ragged edge offeasibility,” said AHS International Executive Director Mike Hirschberg. “It took AeroVelo’sfresh ideas, daring engineering approach and relentless pursuit of innovation – coupled withmore than three decades of advances in structures, composites, computer-aided design andaeromechanical theory – to succeed in achieving what many in vertical flight consideredimpossible. We congratulate the Atlas team on its incredible success.”
