Event Details

 

Absorb something in a casual atmosphere where no background in science is expected.    
     

Manufacturing Movement
3-d printing and dynamic modeling at NASA Langley Aeornautical Research Center 

       

 

In order to ensure safety, aerospace engineers must meet many complex requirements for even simple parts.  Detailed understandings of the properties of material and production processes are required for every component. This has driven NASA and the aerospace industry to be early explorers of alternative fabrication technologies and then ultimately early adopters of 3-d printing (aka 'additive manufacturing') in testing aircraft and spacecraft design.  Now, 3-d printing is a key part of the aerospace industry.

In everyday language, come here about what's involved in "making stuff" from a hands-on technician at NASA Langley Research Center.

Chris Savage 

   

Chris Savage is a Mechanical Engineering Technician in the Advanced Fabrication Processes Section of the Engineering Directorate of NASA Langley Research Center. He works closely with engineers and researchers in the aerospace industry to create accurate and affordable models that are used for testing as well as replacement parts. Savage has also machined various metal parts for many NASA projects; including several that flew such as PA-1, Ares-1X, and STORRM.  Lately he's been specializing in additive manufacturing (aka 3-d printing for industry). 

   
     

 

 

Science Pub RVA events are free and open to the public.  
But,
they aren't exactly free to bring into being.
A $5 donation is suggested.  
However, everyone is truly welcome.
Please do not let money be a barrier to your participation!

Organizer

Science Pub RVA

Science Pub RVA connects curious citizens and creative scientists over a sip of some sort at informal gatherings in non-academic settings.

What to expect  A short, jargon-free presentation by a local scientific thinker and a slightly longer period dedicated to questions and dialogue among the attendees and with a local scientist. 

What to bring  No background in science is needed.  A smidge of curiosity is all it takes to enjoy a fun and engaging time.  Pub is in our name, but sipping a glass of water at these events is completely copacetic.
