Rutgers University receives 2017 NASA University Leadership Initiative Award

Dr. Onur Bilgen, Assistant Professor at Rutgers University, is a co-principal investigator for one of the five projects awarded under the 2017 NASA University Leadership Initiative. The project consists of a multidisciplinary team of researchers from the lead institute University of Tennessee, and Penn State University, Texas A&M University, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Rutgers University, University of Wyoming, Boeing Research & Technology, and Airfoils Incorporated. The 5-year, $10M effort will strive to demonstrate the viability of an ultra-efficient wing aerodynamic design based on slotted, natural-laminar-flow airfoils. As a part of this NASA ULI project, Dr. Bilgen’s research group at Rutgers University will design, model, develop and demonstrate a piezocomposite trailing edge for ultra-efficient commercial vehicles in the 100-210-passenger class.

The Macro Fiber Composite actuators will be considered.
