    • The dawn of the jet age: the first 10 years
      One of the ironies of aviation history is that the most obvious potential power source for a fixed-wing aircraft was barely considered by the early pioneers.
    • Airflow simulation for winglets
      Embraer engineers used CFD to visualize flow patterns around wings for a design retrofit.
    • Aircraft-engine-mounting analysis
      Engineers from Honeywell adapted a rapid analysis approach to develop and validate a complex propulsion system.
    • Reshaping F-16 production
      Following its contract with the Joint Strike Fighter program, Lockheed Martin is reconfiguring its F-16 assembly line in preparation for long-term JSF production starting later this year.
