Energy & Process CFD Symposium
Houston, Texas | May 17 - 18, 2017
Keynote Speaker

Keynote speaker Tom Ramsay will present "Lessons Learned from Applying CAE to Automotive Developments" at this year's Energy & Process CFD Symposium

Tom Ramsay is currently a Principal Engineer at Honda R&D Americas and is the Manager of the Vehicle Performance - Dynamic Performance Department. Mr. Ramsay used to be the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Technical Expert and in that role was responsible for direction and strategy of full vehicle CFD models for most passenger cars and light trucks developed for the North American market. Mr. Ramsay is also the Aerothermal Project Leader for the All-New Acura NSX. Before working at Honda R&D, he worked at Battelle Memorial Institute in the National Security Division where he did anti-armor research, munitions design and development, and counter-explosive and counter-narcotic research.

Mr. Ramsay received a Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science in Aeronautical Engineering, both from The Ohio State University in 1989 and 1993, respectively. He is a member of SAE and belongs to the Vehicle Aerodynamics Forum Committee, the Vehicle Configuration Committee, and the Motorsports Engineering Conference Committee. He is also active in AIAA, having been the Chair of the Columbus Section and was a member of the Fluid Dynamics Technical Committee.

Mr. Ramsay’s professional and vocational interests lie in the areas of aerodynamics, fluid dynamics, physics, and mathematics and include wide ranging topics such as automotive aerodynamics, applied computational geometry, the physics and mathematics of sports, numerical and experimental correlation, and race car aerodynamics, which is a nice fusion of his passion, education, and employment. He is married to Robyn - also an aeronautical engineer, who works in the aerospace CFD industry - and they have two daughters in high school.
