Internship at NASA Ames
Linnea Persson from the School of Electrical Engineering received 36 600 SEK to finance an internship at NASA Ames in California.
Linnea was offered a place at the office responsible for aeromechanical research. The work done there is both theoretical and practical, with the largest wind tunnel in the world being a part of its complex. The research mainly focuses on different ways of evaluating rotorcraft stability and performance. Research is done in acoustics, vibration, dynamics and control, and more.
Linnea was also given the opportunity to participate in the conference "Aeromechanics Design for Vertical Lift" in San Francisco, Jan 20-22, and help in wind tunnel testing.
The Internship Program was conducted between January and April in 2016.
