NASA The foam-damaged heat-shield tiles on the belly of the shuttle Endeavour do not represent a Columbia-class threat of catastrophic failure during re-entry, the chairman of NASA's Mission Management Team told reporters today. John Shannon said the issue is more a matter of whether post-landing repairs might be needed that could delay Endeavour's next flight or whether it might make more sense to stage a relatively simple spacewalk repair job to give the shuttle additional margin during re-entry.

Application Ingersoll Rand Energy Systems has improved the plenum manufacturing process of the MT250 microturbine engine by using the EFD family of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software from Flomerics to develop a simple design that outperforms the earlier more complex design.

In the past, evaluating new designs required expensive rig testing which made it impractical to evaluate a wide range of alternatives. "With EFD software, on the other hand, we were able to evaluate 15 different alternatives very quickly and without cutting any metal," said Toni Stamenov, Design Engineer for Ingersoll Rand Energy Systems.
