13 Awards 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.

14 Awards Available from AIAA
Walter J. and Angeline H. Crichlow Trust Prize Recipients The 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).

Quarterly? Contact: D. Todd Griffith,

17 Best Practices

18 Website 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.

19 Link on AIAA Kids Place Website

20 Education Courses update
Structural Dynamics class cancelled due to lack of registrants. Other class offerings also cancelled Problem 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.

21 Educational Outreach Our 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.

22 SDTC Liaison Subcommittee Report
SDTC Meeting Hampton Va Friday, 11 October 2013

23 Liaison Subcommittee Members
Bruce Willis – Structures TC Curt Larsen – NDA TC Ramesh Malla - ASCE Stephen Rizzi – RASD Conference Raymond Gordnier – Applied Aerodynamics TC & Fluid Dynamics TC Brent Whiting – Aeroelastic Prediction Workshop Vit Babuska – Adaptive Structures TC Ken Griffin – Design Engineering TC Bill Welsh - AHS Matt Allen - IMAC

24 Structures 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.

25 Applied Aerodynamics TC Liaison,
Ray Gordnier Workshop 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.

26 Design 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.

27 AHS Liaison, Bill Welsh AeroVelo Team Wins AHS International’s
33-Year-Old Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Competition ALEXANDRIA, Virginia – July 11, 2013 – AHS International, the world’s premier professional vertical flight technical society, congratulates AeroVelo, Inc. for winning its Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Competition for the first time since the Society established it 33 years ago. A panel of vertical flight technical experts – the AHS International Human Powered Helicopter Competition Committee – thoroughly reviewed the design and flight testing of Toronto, Ontariobased AeroVelo’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 requirements to win the competition and its US$250,000 prize. AeroVelo’s Dr. Todd Reichert piloted and pedaled 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 to fly for at least 60 seconds, reach an altitude of at least 3 meters (9.8 feet) and remain hovering over a 10 by 10 meter (32.8 by 32.8 foot) area. The full competition regulations, as well as past news updates, videos and other information, are available on the AHS International website, “The AHS Sikorsky Prize challenged the technical community to harness teamwork, technical skills and cutting edge technologies to meet requirements that were on the ragged edge of feasibility,” said AHS International Executive Director Mike Hirschberg. “It took AeroVelo’s fresh ideas, daring engineering approach and relentless pursuit of innovation – coupled with more than three decades of advances in structures, composites, computer-aided design and aeromechanical theory – to succeed in achieving what many in vertical flight considered impossible. We congratulate the Atlas team on its incredible success.”
