Additive Manufacture of Rocket Engine Combustion Chambers by Amelia Stanton


Speaker:       Amelia Stanton

Date:              Saturday 31st July 2021

Start Time:   14:00

End Time:     15:15

Venue:          via Zoom

Additive Manufacturing can engineer combustion chambers with integrated functions in less time and at lower cost than traditional manufacturing methods.

Amelia takes us on a journey through the state of the art techniques used in the manufacture of liquid propellant rocket engine combustion chambers.

We will see how calculations initially made on MATLAB are tested by CAD design through Finite Element Analysis and Computer Fluid Dynamics to undergo an optimisation procedure for Additive Manufacture.

Amelia will be presenting material from her Mechanical Engineering degree dissertation on Additive Manufacture of liquid propellant Rocket Engine Combustion Chambers.


About the Speaker

Amelia is a Space enthusiast from Worcestershire and is in her penultimate year of the integrated Masters Mechanical Engineering degree at Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh.

She is helping organise the first Edinburgh Women In Space conference for March 2021, is leading the University’s design for the CANSAT competition sponsored by NASA, and has previously held internships with The International Space Elevator Consortium and the BIS.
