Inlets, Nozzles, and Propulsion Systems Integration Technical Committee



Welcome to the homepage of the Air Breathing Propulsion Systems Integration Technical Committee (ABPSI TC).  We hope you will explore and avail yourself of the information provided here.  Please see the Scope and Charter statements below to learn more about the function of the ABPSI TC.

Scope - The application of mechanical design, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics to the science and technology of air vehicle propulsion and power systems integration, including:

  1. Installed performance and controls  (SPO, PPT)
  2. Propulsion aerodynamics; inlet and nozzle systems (IE)
  3. Power and thermal management (SPO, PPT)
  4. All aspects of propulsion system / air vehicle interface and certification (RVCT)

Charter - Advance air breathing propulsion integration technology by:  

  1. Developing and sponsoring technical sessions at ASM, JPC and other conferences of interest
  2. Working effectively with AIAA TCs and PCs and other technical societies to organize and promote joint sessions and activities
  3. Providing for technical communications and reviews, educational activities, and honors and awards
  4. Providing the Institute with authoritative technical opinions and public policy recommendations

Inquiries may be directed to the Chair, or any of the TC members, who will be happy to assist you. Nomination forms can be found on this webpage.

AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop - The ABPSI TC sponsors and organizes the Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop (PAW). The second Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, on July 31st and August 1st 2014. This workshop will be associated with the 50th AIAA JPC Conference, included in the Propulsion and Energy Forum. The goal of the PAW02 workshop is to share understandings and experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other and to envision future directions. Scientists from everywhere are strongly encouraged to participate! Academia scholarship are available for qualified participants. Additional information as well as application form for the workshop can be found on the PAW website. Questions concerning workshop should be directed to the organizing committee via email. Test-cases that will be considered at PAW02 are illustrated below.

AIAA Social Media Policy11/2/2016 8:32 AM

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:
