  • Additive Manufacturing capability could generate future efficiencies and cost-savings for AEDC

    Additive manufacturing (AM), a process commonly known as three-dimensional (3-D) printing, describes technologies that build 3-D objects by adding layers. Team members in the Technology Innovation Branch at Arnold Air Force Base are looking at AM as a way to create efficiencies and cost-savings for AEDC. AM typically uses a computer, 3-D modeling
  • AEDC T-11 engine test cell modified to expand its capabilities

    The AEDC T-11 engine test cell at Arnold Air Force Base has been enhanced to perform a wide variety of research tests in addition to its primary role of testing small engines in a direct-connect configuration.The Air Force Project Manager for upcoming technology tests in T-11, Joshua Osborne, explained that one of the largest benefits is that this
  • Innovative analysis methodology making a difference for AEDC, Air Force and the warfighter

    AEDC analysis team members have developed and demonstrated a first generation full frequency range screech analysis methodology for a re-heater on turbine engines to reduce instability when testing in the facilities at Arnold Air Force Base.Innovative ideas like this one are common in daily work across AEDC and the U.S. Air Force, as the Air Force
