The Thermal and Fluids Analysis Workshop (TFAWS) is an annual training and professional development workshop that is designed to encourage knowledge sharing, professional development, and networking throughout the thermal and fluids engineering community within NASA and the aerospace community at large.
The vision of TFAWS is to maintain continuity over time and between disciplines throughout the thermal and fluids engineering community.
- Paper Sessions
- Software and Hardware Demonstrations
- Hands-on Software Training
- Technical Short Courses
- Guest Speakers
- Tours of Marshall Space Flight Center
Registration is FREE for all attendees!
Who Should Attend?
- International Guests and Partners
- Thermal and Fluids Analysis Tool Users
- Anyone interested in thermal and fluids analysis
All levels of experience are welcome!
- Participants have the opportunity to share their work on the latest application of new and established methods to aerospace missions, impart engineering lessons learned, and compare/contrast engineering practices.
- Annual sharing of knowledge, hands-on instruction in relevant state-of-the-art engineering analysis tools, and seminars/short courses taught by the veterans in the thermal and fluids engineering community helps to ensure that the expertise of the community is maintained.
- Networking at TFAWS gives each engineer an extensive network of contacts which serves as an excellent source of advice and technical knowledge.
- TFAWS provides tremendous opportunities for enhancing collaboration between NASA centers, other government agencies, industry, academia, and the international thermal and fluids engineering community.
Abstract and Paper Submission Guidelines
- You are invited to submit papers for presentation in the conference sessions.
- Abstract submissions will be accepted through May 19.
- Submissions should be sent to MSFC-TFAWS2017Papers@mail.nasa.gov. You will be notified via e-mail of the acceptance of your abstract.
Abstracts can be 200-1000 words and should include the following:
- A title and description of the paper or presentation to be submitted
- The authors and their affiliated institutions
- An indication of what is unique about the work
- An assessment of data, results and conclusions that are available
- A status of the state of the work (concept, development, testing, completed study)
In addition to the abstract, please specify the topic area for your submission (Active Thermal/Fluids & Life Support, Passive Thermal, Aerothermal, and Interdisciplinary), and indicate if the final paper/presentation will include export controlled (ITAR) material.
- Abstract Deadline: May 19th, 2017
- Registration Period: Spring 2017
