Orlando, Florida


Date: January 5, 2010

To: Scott Miller, LPTC Chairman

From: David Perry, Secretary

Subject: Minutes - Liquid Propulsion Technical Committee, ASM Meeting,

5 January, 2010, Orlando, Florida

Chairman Scott Miller called the meeting to order at 1800 hours on January 10, 2010 at the JPC conference in Orlando, Florida. The agenda for the LPTC meeting is included as Attachment 1. Twenty eight members or alternates and one visitor were in attendance (Attachment 2). Action Items established during the course of the meeting have been added to outstanding action items from previous meetings, and are listed in Attachment 3. Attachment 4 is a reproduction of the presentation material used by Scott Miller in the meeting.
The LPTC Steering Group (attendees are indicated on the Attachment 2 attendance roster) met prior to the full committee meeting (the meeting took place on January 5, between 1500 hours and 1715 hours); minutes were taken and the topics covered were discussed again in the general meeting.
Key points and discussion from the meeting follow:
Opening Remarks / Introduction
- Scott Miller started the meeting with welcoming remarks. The agenda for the meeting was also reviewed.
Old Business

  • David Perry asked if there were any comments or corrections to the minutes of the LPTC General Membership meeting in Denver on August 2009. No comments or corrections were received, and the minutes were then approved as written by voice vote.

  • The status of the action items was reviewed (see Attachment 3 for details). New items of note included:

    • Item 09JPC-06 & -07 was accepted by Scott Forde. Scott is to prepare letters of thank you for members who have left and reminder letters for members who have not attended the last few sessions. Once the members have been notified of their lack of attendance, then a list is to be created to remove these members if required.

    • Item 10ASM-01 was accepted by Alfredo Lopez to determine which LPTC members would qualify as a sustaining AIAA member. Suggestion was made for Kent Pugmire.

    • Item 10ASM-02 was accepted by Scott Forde to assist in the advancement of two people from Associate Fellow to Fellow. Suggestions were made for Kent Pugmire and Brian Winters.

    • Item 10ASM-03 was accepted by Scott Miller to talk to Betty Guillie of AIAA TAC to determine the reason of the high alcohol costs in Denver and ask for an itemized list.

    • Item 10ASM-04 was accepted by Gary Grayson to send to all members a link to the minutes on the LPTC website.

    • Item 10ASM-05 was accepted by Ivett Leyva to create a list of names for a “special person session”, such as George Sutton, Bob Sackheim, and George Sutherland.

    • Item 10ASM-06 was accepted by Gary Grayson to prepare a ½ hour special topic on non-toxic propulsion for the short course.

JPC Conference Updates

Propulsion & Energy Meeting Summary

  • TAC P&E leadership met Sunday 1/3

  • 2010 Joint Propulsion Conference Issues (Nashville)

    • JPC 2010 has five $15K sponsors, with two more likely

    • Because of decreased sponsorship funding (and no prime sponsor), there will likely be no offsite social event and no or reduced scope Sunday night social

    • Abstracts submitted are again lower than the previous year (640 this year as opposed to 717 last year) although we have 130 in Liquid Propulsion (most of any area)

  • 2011 Joint Propulsion Conference Issues (San Diego)

    • No general chair, no executive chairs (although soon to be confirmed)

    • No sponsors

  • AIAA is looking at a number of ways to reduce costs in general

    • Co-location of conferences

    • Conferences self-contained in large hotel properties

    • No dinner or drinks at the P&E Meeting (!)

  • Joint conference approach with IECEC appears to be providing increased overall attendance and synergy

  • NOTE: JPC is the 2nd most profitable conference for AIAA (1st is ASM) while IECEC is the worst (money loser)

  • Funds available in 2010 from AIAA

    • TAC funds: $400 per TC to grow AIAA awareness/ participation

    • Director funds: $4400 at P&E level or approximately $300 per TC

LPTC Publications and Website Subcommittee

ASM – Orlando, Florida

January 4, 2010
Aerospace America ’09 year-in-review article published

  • No significant issues—thank you submitters!

  • Fewer submissions than last year

  • Possibly because we discussed space restrictions at JPC

  • Only had to cut ~100 words

  • Complaints? Email:

Publications subcommittee DID NOT publish a newsletter in Fall ‘09

  • Almost all of the submitted highlight material was published in the Aerospace America article

  • Personal time constraints kept me from organizing the subcommittee to work on the newsletter

  • …so, will publish Spring ‘10

  • Mid year highlights

  • Pitch the LPTC short course

  • Whatever else I can get out of subcommittee members (who will be emailed after the ASM)

09 Year In Review Article Summary Data

Action Item Response

  • Action to investigate publishing a standard for design, development, and test of liquid engines

    • AIAA relies on external parties (e.g. Air Force) to fund

      • Participating authors expected to work pro bono or with funding from their own organizations

      • AIAA would be able to provide meeting space and some administrative support

      • Talked with I-Shih Chang and Selma Goldstein to understand the process for AIAA standard publication

    • Aerospace Chief Engineer & Air Force have sponsored similar standards through AIAA

      • Need written outline/draft before they would consider funding

      • Aerospace Propulsion Dept. has some starting material

  • If the committee is still interested, I’ll take volunteers to assemble an outline & 1st draft

LPTC Webmaster Report
Highlights Since JPC:

  • Member list updated.

  • Resumes updated.

  • Awards announcement posted.

  • JPC meeting minutes posted.

  • Received a “reprieve” of new AIAA sharepoint format thus allowing us keep our customized and colorful site free from ads and “whitespace.”

LPTC 46th JPC Report

ASM – Orlando, Florida

January 4, 2010

Message from Mike Nusca

  • Abstract deadline of 19 November was extended a couple of days due to problems with ScholarOne being up/down that final week.

  • I was receiving requests for late abstract submittal up to 8 December (the ScholarOne permits the Technical Area Chair to grant this easily).

  • Received about 130 abstracts: highest of any JPC topic area.

  • Due to some pressing December commits at the Lab, and a bit of a steep ScholarOne learning curve, I did not get all of the abstracts assigned for reviews and emails sent until 28 December. Note: ScholarOne does NOT have a automatic email notification option !!

  • We have four topic areas in LP:

    • Liquid Rocket Engine & Propulsion Systems (SYSTEMS).

    • Liquid Rocket Engine & Prop. Systems Components (COMPONENTS).

    • Feed System Studies: Valves, Tank, Duct Flows (FEED).

    • M&S of Liquid Rocket Engines and Prop. Systems (M+S).

  • Statistics:

    • SYSTEMS: 42 abstracts (JPC09: 27 papers, 8 sessions).

    • COMPONENTS: 33 abstracts (JPC09: 52 papers, 14 sessions).

    • FEED: 13 abstracts (JPC09: 4 papers, 3 sessions).

    • M+S: 42 abstracts (JPC09: 11 papers, 4 sessions).

  • Statistics: JPC2009 we had 94 papers in 29 sessions.

  • Statistics: JPC2010 we could have 31 sessions (see last slide).

  • Based solely on LPTC member participation in session chair/co-chair for JPC09, I assigned 28 members abstract review duties, asking for warning on conflict of interest and review completion next week. May need some last minute assistance as January progresses.

  • Schedule for next few milestones:

    • 22 January 2010: all abstracts reviewed and sessions built.

    • 3 Feb 2010: Preliminary program finalized.

    • 25 Feb 2010: Author notification.

    • Mar/Apr 2010: Program published (web and AA).

  • Needs:

    • Complete abstract reviews ASAP: to date only 6 members (out of 28) have worked and/or completed the assigned reviews.

    • May need last minute second/third “tie break” reviews.

    • Session chair and co-chair volunteers. DO not need until after 22 Jan.

    • Please use volunteer forms available this evening.

    • I will also be emailing the LPTC membership to catch others.

  • Do we have any Panels or Special sessions?

    • Right now there are only two slots on the schedule available due to the venue and the record number of papers, etc.

  • Questions and Issues ?
