Khaled A. Sallam, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Oklahoma State University-Tulsa, has been named chair of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering Mid Continent Section.
He will begin his one-year term July 1. The organization’s Mid Continent Section was founded in 1919 and is one of the oldest in the country.
“Dr. Sallam exemplifies the caliber of excellence demonstrated by faculty at OSU-Tulsa,” said Raman P. Singh, associate dean for engineering at OSU-Tulsa.
“Our faculty are leaders in their fields and we are proud to have Dr. Sallam among them,” he said.
Sallam earned his doctorate in aerospace engineering in 2002 from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, joining the faculty of the OSU-Tulsa School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering the next year.
During his time at OSU-Tulsa, Sallam has received the Halliburton Excellent Young Teacher Award, the Lockheed Martin Aeronautic Teaching Excellence Award, the OSU-Tulsa President’s Outstanding Teaching Award and the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology Excellent Teacher Award.
Sallam served a summer faculty fellowship at the Air Force Research Lab at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and received the W.R. Marshall Award from the Institute of Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems.
His area of research focuses on experimental thermal fluid sciences applied to high-speed propulsion and energy conservation systems.
Sallam is an associate fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and serves on the organization’s High Speed Air Breathing Propulsion Technical Committee. He is also a member of the American Society of Thermal and Fluids Engineers and the Institute for Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems.
He serves as faculty advisor for the OSU-Tulsa ASME student section.
