Hsien K. Cheng Lecture
The Division of Astronautical Engineering’s annual keynote lecture has been named for Hsien K. Cheng, the USC Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Aerospace Engineering.
H. K. Cheng was a significant early contributor to the Viterbi School’s reputation for research excellence in the areas of flight aerodynamics and/or the hydrodynamics of swimming propulsion. He has done significant work in theoretical and computational fluid mechanics, flight hypersonics, geophysical fluid mechanics, bio-fluid dynamics and ocean sonic boom research.
Cheng was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1988. He is also a fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
