Jefferson Stewart, engineer with Technology Innovations at Arnold Air Force Base, looks through a microscope at one of the parts recently fabricated using additive manufacturing. Stewart and other members of the Technology Innovations Branch have been looking at additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing of metals, as a way to make hardware needed for AEDC operations. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Deidre Ortiz) 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

John Allan readies one of the arc heater units at the High Temperature Laboratory at Arnold Air Force Base for an upcoming test. The HTL test teams anticipate an increased workload over the next few years and have been implementing several changes recently in preparation for the additional testing. (U.S. Air Force photo/Deidre Ortiz) Arc improvements help test teams meet growing workload
Changes are being implemented at the AEDC High Temperature Laboratory (HTL) at Arnold Air Force Base to assist the test teams in meeting their continuously increasing workload. The HTL houses the arc heater units – H1, H2 and H3 – that provide aerothermal simulation environments for high-speed vehicle materials and structures. According to Jonathan

Winners of the MathCounts® competition Feb. 3 at University of Tennessee Space Institute receive their awards from AEDC Commander Col. Scott Cain. The Arnold Air Force Base Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Outreach Program sponsored five MathCounts® Teams, comprised of a total of 46 students. This competition, which challenges students to solve math problems, is only one of many engineering activities that lead up to National Engineers Week, Feb. 18-24. Winners of the competition will be combined into a team that will compete at the state level and possibly at the national level. Students in seventh and eighth grades from Bedford, Coffee, Franklin and Lincoln counties participated in this recent competition. The event is also sponsored by the Tennessee Society of Professional Engineers. Pictured left to right are: Kyler Cantrell, St. Andrews-Sewanee School; Jaxon Bennett, East Middle School; D.J. Dillehay, East Middle School; Franklin Zhang, East Middle School; Cannon Emory, East Middle School; Jackson Banks, East Middle School; Garnet Cuello, East Middle School; Alexander Camron, West Middle School; Col.
