Hi, I'm Erik Axdahl. I received my Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics from the University of Minnesota in 2007 and am currently an aerospace engineering graduate student at Georgia Tech/National Institute of Aerospace while I do my research at NASA Langley Research Center.
Some interesting projects I've worked on:
- Aeroelastic analysis of attached inflatable aerodynamic decelerator on a blunt entry body (Master's Thesis, NASA LaRC)
- Self-sufficient Mars science payload concept design for Astrobiology Field Laboratory mission (NASA/JPL)
- Cavitating hydrofoil and supercavitating torpedo flow image analysis (University of Minnesota)
- Autonomous UAV close-formation flight concepts (NASA LaRC)
Here are some images that I have contributed to Wikipedia.
