High Speed Air Breathing Propulsion Technical Committee


 HSABPTC logo     Welcome! We are delighted you are visiting us. The High Speed Air Breathing Propulsion (HSABP) Technical Committee brings together experts in the field. The scope of the HSABP TC is the application of mechanical design, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics to the science and technology of system that enable supersonic and hypersonic air vehicle propulsion such as ramjets and scramjets, combined cycle and unsteady propulsion, and other advanced air breathing propulsion.

AIAA Social Media Policy11/2/2016 8:32 AM
by Betty GuillieNo presence information
AIAA has a Social Media Policy! Many committees (along with regions, sections and branches) have "unofficial"-official AIAA pages on Facebook, Twitter, etc. The policy isn't meant to be a set of rules that would constrain activity on those pages; it just outlines what the Institute would consider to be inappropriate content for an AIAA-branded page and explains what to do in the case of a hack or account compromise. To access the Social Media Policy, please click on this link:
