What Does Aerospace Have to do With It?
Join us for an evening at our September Technical Dinner hosted by the UW-AIAA at the University of Washington Campus (building location will be provided closer to the day of the event). Food and beverages will be provided by the PNW Section of AIAA.
Our featured speaker will be Dr. Carl Knowlen, Senior Research Scientist with the UW William E. Boeing Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Dr. Knowlen will speak on “What Does Aerospace Have to do with It?”
Biography - Carl Knowlen received his Ph.D. in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from the University of Washington in 1991 and is currently a Senior Research Scientist with the UW William E. Boeing Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics and a Part Time Lecturer. He has a strong background in analytical modeling of gas dynamics, chemical kinetics, heat transfer and fluid flow systems and extensive experience in experimental techniques for internal ballistics, supersonic testing, cryogenic systems, rocket propulsion systems, and flow field diagnostics. Dr. Knowlen’s research activities include: space power systems, ram accelerators (in-tube ramjets), shock wave reactors (petrochemical pyrolysis process using supersonic flow of high enthalpy steam), cryogenic energy storage systems, vortex tube cryogenic air separation, microthruster propellants and technology, combustion and detonation properties of propellants, liquid coolant injection systems for supersonic turbojet engines, and ammonia manufacturing processes. He has published over 120 articles in the proceedings of various technical meetings and refereed journals and is currently an Associate Fellow of the AIAA.
