Virginia Tech mechanical engineers win measurement science best paper award
Date:5/31/2011

For the second consecutive year, members of Virginia Tech's Advanced Experimental Thermofluid Engineering Research (AEThER) Laboratory in mechanical engineering, directed by professor Pavlos P. Vlachos, professor of mechanical engineering, have received the Outstanding Paper Award in fluid mechanics from the Measurement Science and Technology Journal, published by the American Institute of Physics.

John J. Charonko, of Blacksburg, Va., who received his bachelor's and master's degrees in engineering science and mechanics, and his doctorate in biomedical engineering, all from Virginia Tech, was the lead author on the article. It was co-written with Cameron V. King, a graduate student in mechanical engineering at Utah State University, Barton L. Smith, associate professor of mechanical engineering at Utah State University, and Vlachos.

Charonko is currently a research assistant professor in the mechanical engineering department at Virginia Tech.

In announcing the award, the editorial board of Measurement Science and Technology wrote that the paper addressed how to non-intrusively measure the pressure distribution at the interior of a flow field as, "one of the most challenging measurements" in this field of study. The board also credited the authors with "operating with the constraint of incomplete information," yet they "significantly advanced " these fluid mechanics measurements.

"The ability to accurately estimate the pressure field inside a flow, and its variations in space and time without having to physically introduce invasive instruments such as probes, significantly augments our ability to investigate the flow phenomena and can have great impact on the way experiments and simulations interface with each other," Vlachos said.
