Learning Across Disciplines


Case Studies

Case-based instructional components within the aerospace engineering curriculum are presented and updated here. Cases from recognizable and inspiring historical aerospace events help reinforce the “dream” of the profession. 


Examples include:

• Discovery and mitigation of the “pogo” mode in the Saturn V rocket during the Apollo program

• Near loss of control authority of SpaceShip I during the X-Prize competition

• Development of the automatically translating spike inlet on the SR-71

• Conceptual sizing of the Voyager aircraft that flew around-the-world non-stop
