西南交通大学“创源”大讲堂研究生学术讲座

讲座时间:2017年5月23日(周二)上午 9:30

讲座地点:九里校区 行政楼二楼 力学报告厅

主 讲 人:美国中佛罗里达大学林国基教授 

简    历:Dr. Lin received his PhD in Aerospace Engineering from University of Michigan in 1990. In the same year, he joined University of Central Florida (UCF) as a joint-faculty between Institute for Simulation and Training (IST) and Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE). Between 2006 and 2014, Dr. Lin serves as the Associate Chair of the MAE department.Dr. Lin has published over 125 technical papers in the peer-reviewed journals and conference proceeding. He has received 3,4 million US dollars research funding as the Principle Investigator (PI) or Co-PI. In the 25-year teaching career, DR. Lin has been involved in the ABET accreditation many times. The 8-year service as the Associate Chair makes him very familiar with the curricula and the students.

讲座题目:Energy-Saving Formation Flight

讲座内容:Formation flight was first observed in the long-distance migration of bird flocks. After the invention of airplanes, formation flight of aircraft was initially flight were not well understood and great challenges were faced by pilots to overcome the turbulence generated by the nearby airplanes. With the development of aerodynamics and fluid mechanics, the benefits of formation flight have been well studied. Theories, simylations, and experiments have started to reveal the possible energy savings in formation flight for various purposes.
    This presentation reviews the practice and research of the formation flight of airplanes to increase flight and fuel efficiency. It briefly covers some of the most imporatant progress into the human understanding of formation flight. Both military and commercial related outcomes are also investigated.
