About the Author

Dr. ir. Roelof Vos

Roelof Vos holds a BSc degree in Aerospace Engineering from Delft University of Technology which he received in 2004. He earned an MSc degree from that same university which he received with honors in 2005. Sponsored by a VSBfonds scholarship, he subsequently worked for 6 months as a post-graduate researcher at The University of Manchester. In 2006 Vos received a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue a PhD degree at The University of Kansas. His research was acknowledged with the AIAA Abe Zarem Award in 2008. Vos obtained his PhD degree in 2009. Since then Vos has been working as assistant professor at the Aerospace Engineering Faculty of Delft University of Technology. He teaches courses on aircraft design, aerodynamic design of transport aircraft and aerodynamic design of combat aircraft. His research focuses on the development of aircraft analysis methodologies for the conceptual design phase, the design of new aircraft configurations and the assessment of emerging aviation technologies. He has published 12 articles in peer-reviewed journals and over 30 conference papers. He has worked on various projects funded by the European Commission. He is a senior member of AIAA and a member of the AIAA Aircraft Design Technical committee.

Dr. Saeed Farokhi

His undergraduate education in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering was in the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, where he graduated with the Highest Honors in 1975. His Master’s and PhD degrees came from MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1976 and 1981 respectively, both in Aeronautics and Astronautics. He then joined the Gas Turbine Division of Brown, Boveri and Company in Baden, Switzerland, where he worked as a Design and Development Engineer for four years. Farokhi joined the University of Kansas in 1984, where he is a Professor of Aerospace Engineering. He is the author of a popular textbook: Aircraft Propulsion, which was first published in 2009 and its 2nd Edition was published by Wiley in 2014.Farokhi’s research has mainly been in flow control, unsteady flows, flows with swirl, aeroacoustics and wind turbine engineering. He is a co-inventor (and a U.S. patent holder) on a smart supersonic vortex generator. Farokhi’s research has received funding from numerous government organizations, including NASA, DoD, DoE, DoT, among others as well as aircraft industry.He has over 100 publications in journals and conference proceedings to his credit. Farokhi is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, a Fellow of ASME and an Associate Fellow of AIAA.
