January Branch Lecture - A Boat on Wings

by Laurent Declerck, Delft University and Airbus

RAeS Bristol are extremely lucky to welcome back the winner of our Young Persons Lecture Competition to present to the wider branch.

Laurent will speak about his experience the entering the fascinating World Championship of Solar Boat Racing and describe how he and his team of fellow aerospace engineers pushed the rules to the limit to create a truly innovative vehicle in just one year.

This will be a thrilling insight into what can be achieved with imagination, creativity and out of the box thinking and will hopefully inspire some of our members to attempt similar feats!

Drones vs the Volcano

Scientist and Engineers team up to use drones to study Volcán de Fuego in GuatemalaA team of volcanologists and engineers from the Universities of Bristol, Birmingham and Cambridge have collected measurements from directly within volcanic clouds, together with visual and thermal images of inaccessible volcano peaks. During two research tripssupported by the Cabot Institute, the team carried out many proof-of-concept flights at the summits of both Volcán de Fuego and Volcán de Pacaya in Guatemala. Using lightweight modern sensors they measured temperature, humidity and thermal data within the volcanic clouds and took images of multiple eruptions in real-time. Dr Richardson will be presenting results from both campaigns and highlighting the benefits of working across faculties within the University.
