In the past two weeks, four lab members went to four different conferences to spread the MAESTRO gospel and represent Texas A&M engineering to a variety of different communities. Allen Davis attended the Vertical Flight Society meeting in Dallas, Texas, where he presented his latest work on adaptive rotorcraft design. Jacob Mingear gave an invited presentation (a great honor!) about his progress towards developing liquid metal-SMA actuators at the International Conference on Shape Memory and Superelastic Technologies (SMST) in Long Beach, California. Patrick Walgren briefed the DoD about his work on aperture design in Delaware. Finally, Dr. Hartl traveled to Houston for the SIMULIA Regional User’s Meeting and updated the Abaqus finite element community on his work training the next generation of Aggie structural engineers. Great job everyone!
