PRI 2016: AETC Announces Speakers For Engine Tech Conference

Harold Bettes of Power Technology Consultants will return as master of ceremonies.

Speakers are set for the 27th annual Advanced Engineering Technology Conference (AETC) that will be held prior to the PRI show on December 8-10. The conference is open to engine builders, design engineers and performance parts manufacturers and will be held at the Indianapolis Convention Center.

“We’re excited that the Advanced Engineering Technology Conference is once again in Indy during the week of the PRI Show,” says PRI general manager Bill Miller. “Understanding and knowing the latest in advanced technology is crucial to the motorsports industry. This top-rated conference focuses on these important topics, and attending the event will be easy and convenient.”

Hundreds of engine builders, designers and racing parts manufacturers will attend this year’s AETC.

The two-day program includes one-on-one time with presenters along with raffle prizes. Breakfast and lunch is included each day with the $399.95 registration fee.

Following is the schedule of speakers:

Tuesday

Wednesday

A few topics have been announced. Lynch will give a presentation on engine sealing that will discuss surface preparation, clamping force, gasket materials, sealants and fasteners. Bryce will talk about the development of big-bore, high-rpm racing engines, and Sledge will discuss taking a scientific approach to engine bearing design. Also, Lebarron will talk about protecting the engine against torsional vibration, in particular the basic causes and how to measure those vibrations.

The presentations dive deep into the technology of racing engines.

Between presentations there is a 30-minute break for networking and followup questions with the speakers. Closing out the conference will be a panel discussion with John Waraniak of SEMA, Ford Motorsport engine supervisor David Simon and Jamie McNaughton, technical director at RoushYates Engines.
