SAE International honored eight aerospace engineering professionals with the Charles M. Manly Memorial Award during SAE 2013 AeroTech Congress and Exhibition, held in Montreal, Canada.
Established in 1928, the award annually recognizes the author(s) of the best paper(s) relating to theory or practice in the design or construction of, or research on, aerospace engines, their parts, components, or accessories at a meeting of the Society or its sections during the calendar year. Charles Manly, for who the award is named, served as SAE President in 1919 and following his death, many of his associates formed a committee to establish a memorial as a lasting tribute to his work in aeronautic engineering.
The SAE AeroTech Congress and Exhibition is held biennially, so two sets of awards were presented.
For their paper titled, “Oscillating Airfoil Icing Tests in the NASA Glenn Research Center Icing Research Tunnel” #2011-38-0016. The 2011 award winners included:
For their paper titled, “Propulsion System Component Considerations for NASA N3-X Turboelectric Distributed Propulsion System” #2012-01-2165. The 2012 award winners included:
