April 24, 2014. GUSTAVE EIFFEL – CELEBRATING A CENTURY OF VISIONARY AERODYNAMICS. SiliconFrench (a Francophile organization in the Bay Area) and GABA (German American Business Association) present an evening honoring Gustave Eiffel’s legacy and impact on aerodynamic research and modern transportation (principally aviation and automobiles): Eiffel was born in Dijon, France, and his work has deeply impacted architecture, engineering and modern transportation. He has left a powerful legacy including engineering, social, economic, and political impacts in addition to attracting millions of visitors each year to his well known creations. This evening focuses on his contributions to and advancement of aerodynamics research. We will begin our evening with a presentation on Eiffel’s work and legacy by Bernard Metais Emeritus Engineer from Bechtel (See Bio below) who has presented on this topic in both the US and Europe. This will be followed by several additional presentations about recent and current projects in the spirit of Eiffel’s interest in Aerodynamics. The audience will include a mix of non-technical business people and engineers from various fields. We expect that our attendees will find the presentations accessible for all. This event is scheduled for April 24, 2014 in the evening (6PM-9PM).
