Sabancı University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences Member Kürşat Şendur presented his projects on areospace technologies supported by the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) at the NASA Langley Research Center.
Controlling heat increase in equipment and materials is a great challenge in aerospace applications. Radiant heat transfer plays a large part in controlling heat increase in such environments. Kürşat Şendur was invited to the NASA Langley Research Center to present his research on breakthrough aerospace technologies and materials that control radiant heat transfer to a board of scientists.
AFOSR, the world's leading institute on aerospace research, supports 200 academic institutions working in this area. Sabancı University has been conducting two projects with AFOSR support since 2016, and the technologies have potential applications in aerospace as well as energy, information technologies, and infrared solutions.
Sabancı University aims to establish a joint platform with NASA for aerospace research. Kürşat Şendur said, “We discussed possible cooperative efforts between Sabancı University and NASA that are similar in structure to the ongoing Sabancı University and AFOSR joint projects."
