Alan Epstein wins ASME award

The American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME) has awarded to Dr. Alan Epstein, Pratt & Whitney’s vice president, Technology & Environment, its prestigious Aircraft Engine Technology Award.

Epstein was nominated by Pratt & Whitney President Paul Adams for his exceptional contributions to aircraft engine technology, including techniques for innovative turbomachinery experimentation methods, invention of the ‘microengine’ concept, creation and demonstration of active control of compressor instability and technology strategy development and implementation for a major aircraft engine manufacturer. Epstein’s contributions proved vital for the success of Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower Geared Turbofan engine family.

“It is truly meaningful for me to be recognized by the ASME,” remarked Epstein. “The organization serves as a vital outlet for engineers to share ideas. I am thankful not only to Paul Adams for nominating me, but also to the many, many Pratt & Whitney engineers whose efforts inspire me every day.”
