SAE International is introducing a new line of power and propulsion information products in support of engineering knowledge-sharing regarding major aerospace technology issues. With the scarcity of current, relevant research in topics like thermal management, advanced manufacturing processes and renewable fuels, this selection of resources contains specialized, applied information that engineers need in order to address today’s important issues and advance tomorrow's aircraft.
“We wanted to give engineers access to information they haven’t had before, so this is a unique opportunity for both our audience and for SAE International,” explained Frank Menchaca, chief product officer for SAE International. “Advances being made in other industries could power major progress when applied to aerospace. This was our way of bringing all of that knowledge together in one place — and assuring that it’s accurate and relevant.”
These cutting-edge information products are available for instant access on SAE Mobilus, the technical resource platform created by the international automotive and aerospace mobility community to provide a critical advantage to develop the future of aerospace engineering. The information products contain thousands of pieces of critical content, such as standards, journal articles, eBooks, technical papers, videos and magazines, along with complementary white papers and graphical information pieces.
Aerospace engineering professionals and academics of all levels of experience can leverage the power and propulsion information products to gain insight into topics such as electric aircraft, aerospace fuel cells, as well as supersonic and hypersonic aircraft.
