Presentation of AIAA NCS Engineer of the Year: L-R, Prof. Norman Wereley, Prof. James Baeder and AIAA NCS Chair, Rick Ohlemacher.

 

Prof. James D. Baeder was honored as the Engineer of the Year from the National Capital Section of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics on June 11, 2010, at the National Capital Section?s Annual Awards Banquet at the Army-Navy Country Club in Arlington, Virginia. Prof. Baeder is a Professor of Rotorcraft Computational Fluid Dynamics, since 1993, in the Dept. of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland (U-MD) at College Park. He is a member of the highly successful Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft Center and Center for Microsystem Mechanics, both at U-MD. Dr. Baeder is an internationally recognized leader in Computational Fluid Dynamics, especially in rotorcraft and micro-hovering air vehicle applications. He pioneered development of highly innovative coupling strategies for multiple-fidelity aeromechanic simulations. As Principal Investigator, he led a research team from U-MD and Stanford University in the highly successful "Hybrid Unsteady Simulation of Helicopters (HUSH)" under the DARPA Helicopter Quieting Program (HQP). Dr. Baeder is extending CFD to such multi-fidelity simulations as rotorcraft brownout. Professor Baeder has co-authored over 30 journal and 100 conference publications. He is an Associate Fellow of the AIAA. His citation reads:

?For revolutionary research leading to improvements in the prediction of aero-mechanics in helicopters and other rotary wing vehicles, especially in regards to DARPA Helicopter Quieting Program (HQP) SMART rotor aeroacoustic predictions.?

The National Capital Section of the AIAA has congratulated Prof. Baeder on his outstanding accomplishments.
