SEMINAR: Development of ChiDG – An Overset Grid Discontinuous Galerkin Navier-Stokes Equation Solver

March 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: This talk will explore the development of ChiDG, an overset grid approach that employs the Discontinuous Galerkin approach for the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations. The methodology is presented along with example solutions and an invitation for attendee downloading and use. The approach permits arbitrary high order representations of the governing equations, curved elements and overset grids, the solver features quadratic convergence for the steady state form of the equations. Biography: Paul D. Orkwis , Ph.D. is Interim Dean…

SEMINAR:The Search for Edge States (Boundary Modes) in Mechanical Metamaterials

April 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Recent breakthroughs in condensed matter physics are opening new directions in band engineering and wave manipulation. Specifically, challenging the notions of reciprocity, time-reversal symmetry and sensitivity to defects in wave propagation may disrupt ways in which mechanical metamaterials are designed and employed, and may enable totally new functionalities. Non-reciprocity and topologically protected wave propagation will have profound implications on how stimuli and information are transmitted within materials, or how energy can be guided and steered so that its effects…

SEMINAR: Quantitative ultrasound techniques for monitoring cervical remodeling in pregnancy

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: The cervix is a remarkable organ. One of its tasks is to remain firm and “closed” (5 mm diameter cervical canal) prior to pregnancy. Shortly after conception the cervix begins to soften through collagen remodeling and increased hydration. As the fetus reaches full-term there is a profound breakdown in the collagen structure. At the end of this process, the cervix is as soft as warm butter and the cervical canal has dilated to about 100 mm diameter. Errors in…

SEMINAR: Virtual Surgery

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Virtual surgery is an emerging field that involves the development of novel systems with visual as well as haptic (touch) interfaces, designed to provide immersive interactive experience where the user is able to touch, feel, and manipulate virtual tissues and organs through surgical tool handles used in actual surgery. With as many as 440,000 deaths a year, medical errors, taken as a group, rank as the third leading cause of death in the US, right after cancer and cardiovascular…
