Doctoral student honored with Young Engineer Award from American Society of Mechanical Engineers

Arif Hossain, mechanical engineering PhD candidate in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, was recently awarded the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) International Gas Turbine Institute (IGTI) Young Engineer Award.

The prestigious recognition for graduate students was given at the ASME IGTI Turbomachinery Technical Conference & Exposition in Oslo, Norway. While attending the conference, Hossain presented work done in conjunction with his advisor, Jeffrey Bons, in the Turbine Aerothermodynamics Laboratory at the university’s Aerospace Research Center.

“The ASME Turbo Expo conference has been an integral part of my development as a student researcher and young engineer,” said Hossain. “I feel truly honored to receive this award from this amazing organization.”

“I am also grateful to my advisor, Professor Jeffrey Bons, and the fantastic research group at Ohio State’s Turbine Aerothermodynamics Lab."

The lab is developing innovative cooling architectures for next-generation gas turbine engines, using additive manufacturing techniques. According to Hossain, the team is particularly interested in the topics of sweeping jet film cooling and impingement cooling for gas turbine cooling applications.

Hossain's work has led to new cooling strategies that can be enabled by additive manufacturing techniques. “I wish to continue my research on the development of innovative cooling strategies for energy efficient next-generation gas turbines,” he said.
