Our speaker, Mirsad Hadzikadi is lead investigator for the project, called the “North Carolina Data Science and Analytics Initiative”.
The Domino effect, From Newton’s law of motion to Einstein’s law of Evolution of General Relativity the digital world brings us “Big data” which entered our digital world. From the www. through manufacturing this has an effect on all of us. Used in R&D, the manufacturing floor, logistics in shipping, consumer purchases our future is influenced by “big data” daily.

Senior Group Dinner Event Thursday, May 21st TBA
March 19th Facility Tour Event
AeroDyn Wind Tunnel, LLC
50+ Piedmont-Carolina Members, Guest and Students attended the Plant Tour of The Aerodyn Wind Tunnel in Mooresville which specializes in testing the cars from NASCAR race teams, but is adaptable to fit a wide array of vehicles. This facility is the brainchild of a sure enough Engineer and operated by a like type person. Both Gary Eaker (the builder and owner) and Gary Romberg, the Technical Director have strong Engineering backgrounds in Aerospace and Automotive as well as testing from street vehicles to race cars. The facility incorporates basic mechanical concepts from HVAC principles to the flow control of air pressure under a vehicle to simulate the flow of air on the race track. Their computerized control room and reports generated for the customer is second to none. They were more than willing to spend the time, explain in detail and answer questions. This along with the Siemens tour in February are highlights of the tours our ASME Group has had this year.
