Steven Schneider

Technical Advisory Board

Steven is an internationally recognized and highly respected authority on the subject of laminar-turbulent transition in hypersonic boundary-layer flows and was elected a member of the 2018 class of The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Fellows. His expertise has guided and contributed to numerous government programs and international technological collaborations in hypersonics. Since 1990, he has focused on hypersonic boundary-layer transition, developing facilities and instrumentation for detailed measurements under quiet flow. He spent three decades studying the large literature in this area, learning from previous experts, and has written eight public-release review articles on hypersonic transition. He also worked to study the non-public flight data to better relate the fundamental science to the aerospace systems needs, becoming a Sandia National Laboratory consultant in 2003 and writing two reviews of the non-public data. He is a Fellow of AIAA and received the Ground Testing Award in June 2012. He presently serves as a Subject Matter Expert to various DoD programs, working through SNL, and is also the co-chair of NATO STO AVT-240, a working group on Hypersonic Boundary-Layer Transition Prediction.
