TOPIC: A brief overview of Sandia National Laboratories will be presented, highlighting the mission of the Engineering Sciences Center. The role of delivery environments at Sandia National Labs will be discussed. The focus of the presentation will be on current research and development activities within the framework of a current program to predict environmental loading and response hypersonic flight vehicles. The scope of effort includes computational and experimental activities, covering fluid, thermal, material response and structural dynamics disciplines. The presentation will touch on current research and development activities and associated gaps.
BIO: Jeff Payne is the Senior Manager of the Thermal, Fluid, and Aerosciences Group at Sandia National Labs. The group provides research, development, and applications expertise in thermal, fluid, and aero technology areas required to accomplish Sandia's nuclear deterrent and national security missions. The group develops and applies a wide range of coupled multi-physics and multi-scales models, unique experimental facilities, and advanced diagnostics to improved scientific understanding of elements critical to Sandia’s mission. In addition, Jeff leads the Physics & Engineering Modeling (PEM) element of the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program at Sandia. The PEM program provides the models and databases for a large variety of physical and engineering processes that occur during the operation of delivery systems. Jeff joined the Sandia Aerosciences Department in 1989 after earning his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Maryland.
