Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. (TTE) (OTCBB: TTEG) is pleased to announce that the company has named Magdy Attia, Ph.D., as its Chief Technology Officer. A respected engineer, researcher, and published author whose expertise has benefited major corporations nationwide, Dr. Attia has served TTE since February 2007 as the chairman of the company’s Technical Advisory Board.
Dr. Attia earned his Doctorate of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University. His dissertation topic was “Performance of Axial Compressors and Turbines for Turbomachinery Applications.” During that process, he participated in a NASA-Lewis funded project to create a complete engine performance code that simulated the design and off-design performance of gas turbine engines. He also was responsible for writing and validating the code, and creating the summary document for publication. As a Senior Engineer at Westinghouse Electric Corporation, Dr. Attia was lead designer for the W501FD compressor upgrade. In 1997, he received the George Westinghouse Signature Award of Excellence, and he holds a patent for “High Temperature Compression and Reheat Gas Turbine Cycle and Related Method.”
Dr. Attia is currently serving as an Associate Professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida, and he also leads the university’s Gas Turbine Research Laboratory. In addition, he is the founder and president of the AbM Engineering, LLC, an advanced science consulting firm.
Michael Rouse, President and CEO of TTE, commented, “Dr. Attia has ably served the company and we are pleased that he will lead our technical efforts as we continue the development and commercialization of the Detonation Cycle Gas Turbine engine.”
About Turbine Truck Engines, Inc.
Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. is a technology company focused on the development, manufacture and testing of its New Energy and Environmentally Efficient Truck Engine intended for mass market distribution in the United States and abroad. The new engine can utilize any known fuel source (gasoline, diesel, propane, natural gas, hydrogen, methanol, ethanol or LPG) or fuel mixture, yet needs zero coolant, lube oil, filters, or pumps. Its unique, lightweight turbine design has few moving parts, significantly reducing maintenance costs. The innovative cyclic detonation process produces a complete combustion of fuel-oxidizer mixtures, resulting in greater fuel economy and fewer harmful exhaust emissions.
