The poster competition at the 11th Advanced Energy Conference, sponsored by the Clean Energy Business Incubator Program at Stony Brook University, awarded second place to author Richard C. Smith III, with co-authors Amanda Weaver, Lily Parker, and Cesar Carapia of the Paulson College of Engineering and Computing at Georgia Southern. .

The title of the students’ work is “Analysis of Low-temperature combustion Regions of Aerospace Fuel Blends in a Constant Volume Combustion Chamber: the New Climate Change Mitigation Technology.” These students work with faculty mentor Dr. Valentin Soloiu, Allen E. Paulson Chair of Renewable Energy in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The students competed against students from UC Berkeley, UT Arlington, U of Kansas, Texas Tech, Stony Brook University, Case Western Reserve, U of Massachusetts, and NYU. Mr. Smith graduated with his BS in MechE this spring, but has decided to continue his studies in the MS MechE degree program this fall. Mr. Carapia is currently in the MS MechE program.
