Course Materials

Since course notes will not be distributed on site, AIAA and your course instructor highly recommend that you bring your computer with the course notes already downloaded to the course. Once you have registered for the course, these course notes are available about one week prior to the course event. You will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to access your course notes.



Dr. David Furrer is the Senior Fellow Discipline Lead for the Materials and Processes Engineering organization at Pratt & Whitney. He has over 20 years experience in aerospace materials engineering, including forging manufacture and materials and process modeling.

Jason T. Sebastian, Ph.D. is a specialist in the fields of nanostructural materials characterization and computational materials design. Since joining QuesTek in 2006, his work has focused on: the development of high strength steels for structural and power transmission applications; non-toxic, high-strength/low-friction Cu-based alloys to replace Pb-containing bronzes; a low-cost, castable titanium alloy; a highly-processable Ni-based superalloy; advanced soft magnetic alloys; and other computationally-designed alloys.
