SEMINAR: Minimizing the Impact of Uncertainties on Complex Systems Operation Using Stochastic Distribution Controls Theory

February 14 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
EB3 2207, 911 Oval Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695

Abstract: Planning for inevitable uncertainties that have the potential to negatively impact the nation’s transportation infrastructure, power grid, and manufacturing base is a major challenge. Uncertainties are, by definition, unpredictable. Therefore, it’s critical to deploy effective controls and optimizations to ensure adverse impacts caused by uncertainties are eliminated or minimized, or even utilized such as cases in power grid operation. Dr. Wang will describe how stochastic controls and probability theory can be utilized to effectively address this challenge. In addition,…

SEMINAR: Reprocessing and Recycling of Thermosets and their Composites for Sustainable Development

February 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
EB3 2207, 911 Oval Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695

Abstract:  Thermosets with permanent crosslinking networks have been extensively used in high-performance applications requiring thermal stability, chemical resistance, and structural integrity. However, they are extremely hard to be reprocessed and recycled using conventional methods, leading to ever-increasing contaminations in the waterways, wildlife, and human bodies. Covalent adaptable network (CAN) polymers can rearrange their macromolecular chain network by bond exchange reactions (BERs) with a simple stimulus (e.g. heat, light), which attribute to unusual properties that are not seen in conventional thermosets.…

SEMINAR: Biomechanics of Atherosclerotic Plaque Rupture

February 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
EB3 2207, 911 Oval Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695

Abstract: Fibrous cap rupture and the ensuing thrombus formation accounts for more than 50% of all cardiovascular deaths in the United States. While coronary calcification is clinically related to poor prognosis and used as a marker for the advancement of the disease it has not been successfully correlated with cap rupture. In a series of studies, we investigated the role of microcalcifications (μCalcs) in the vulnerability of plaque rupture.  In Vengrenyuk et al., (2006) it was first proposed that cap…

SEMINAR: Atomistic Transport Processes at Liquid-Vapor Interfaces

March 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
EB3 2207, 911 Oval Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695

Abstract: Advanced condenser surfaces with micro- and nanoscale wettability patterns have attracted much attention recently due to their potential to significantly increase performance in water harvesting and thermal management applications. Performance in these systems is measured in terms of the condensation rate, which is dictated not only by vapor-to-liquid phase change processes but also by the transport of condensed liquid droplets along the condenser surface. Computational fluid dynamics modeling offers a pathway to design surface patterns that optimize condensation rates,…
