We are pleased to announce the winners of the 3rd ASME Mid-Continent Section Graduate and Undergraduate Technical Innovation Awards for the 2022/2023 year. Chris Scott from Oklahoma State University won the Technical Innovation Award within the Graduate Student Nominations. Chris’ abstract topic was on “Holographic Diagnostics for Scramjet Engine Fuel Injection”. This exciting topic explores the use of holographic imaging, a 3D photographic technique using scattered laser beam light based on the principle of diffraction, to study fuel injection in the challenging realm of scramjet engines and hypersonic technology. The team “Solar Concentrator Project” led by Jonathan Merheb with Ali Al Taleb Al Dor, Ivan Samuel Esley, and Lucas Oliveira de Freitas from Oral Roberts University won the Undergraduate Technical Innovation Award. The Solar Concentrator project is an innovative approach to providing the heat necessary for water desalination and purification using solar power. By optimizing the angles of an array of mirrors and deriving equations for these angles for different times throughout the year, charts were able to be created for ideal mirror angles and mirror spacing to provide sustainable and cost-effective water heating. Congratulations to Chris and Jonathan and we look forward to their presentations and discussions during the next ASME Mid-Continent Section speaker series scheduled for Thursday, April 13th, 2023 at 12:00pm Central Time.
