In the Minority - Women Using CFD
Posted Thu October 23, 2003 @04:00PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News According to 2002 data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women represent just over 10 percent of the engineers in the US. A Boeing story discusses the role women have had at Boeing, including design and analysis.

From the first aircraft of a new company to the worldwide production and support of thousands of jetliners in service today, women have contributed significantly to the success of The Boeing Company.

[Peg] Curtin's kite project led her to Notre Dame, where she earned bachelors and masters degrees in aerospace engineering, and then to Boeing. She now works with wind tunnels that blast high-speed air over models of new airplane configurations. Her computer runs computational fluid dynamics programs that predict how different shapes will perform.
