Partnership of a European Group of Aeronautics and Space UniversitieS

The 2015 Conference

The 2015 edition of the Conference was held in Salon de Provence (France) on 20-22 April, 2015. It was hosted by Ecole de l'air.

The eleventh PEGASUS-AIAA student conference received 30 papers. The PEGASUS students were from 13 different institutions in 7 different countries. The student papers covered the following subject areas: 7 in Aerodynamics, Gas Dynamics and Heat Transfer, 2 in Aircraft Design, Subsystems and Integration, 2 in Propulsion and Combustion, 2 in Rotary Wing Aircraft, 1 in Safety, 9 in Space Engineering, 3 in Flight Dynamics, Stability and Control, 4 in Structures.

It is obvious that the variety of the fields of technologies reflects a broad range of activities in the various institutions. All papers received evaluations, based on the technical report and based on the oral presentation.

The winners of the competition have been:

1) First prize Pegasus/AIAA to Jan Schneiders from TU Delft, the Netherlands;

2) Second prize Pegasus/AIAA to Chloe Audas from ISAE-SUPAERO Toulouse, France;

3) Third prize Pegasus/AIAA to Diletta Falconieri from Università degli Studi di Napoli, Italy.

As usual for the PEGASUS events, participation has been very intense both for students and for the 68 reviewers involved.
