SEMINAR: Advances in Vehicle Safety & Mobility Leading to Autonomous Driving

October 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
EB3 2207, 911 Oval Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695

Abstract: While autonomous or driverless driving has received a lot of public attention recently, the majority of the driving for the foreseeable future remains without automation, or with a mixed environment of no and partial automation, and full automation only for a small percentage of vehicles. In all of these mixed modes of traffic, the persisting significant challenge is the safety of driving and traffic crashes, which cause about 35,000 fatalities and 2.2 million injuries annually in the United States,…

SEMINAR: Astrodynamics Research

October 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
EB3 2207, 911 Oval Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695

Abstract: The interest in smaller satellites continues to increase, being driven by technological advances that enable the manufacturing of smaller space hardware and by the desire to lower the cost of space initiatives. ‘Cubesat’ defines a specification for the construction of a very small, low mass satellite that can be easily integrated into a p-pod launch support device. Experience in the founding of a Cubesat program at the University of Illinois will be discussed. Next, an overview of research into…

SEMINAR: Plasma Assisted Combustion: Progress and Challenges

November 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
EB3 2207, 911 Oval Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695

Abstract: In this lecture, the recent progresses in plasma assisted combustion, in-situ mid-IR diagnostics, and studies of low temperature plasma combustion kinetic mechanism will be discussed. The observations of plasma activated direction ignition to flame transition, cool flames, and warm flame will be presented. The direct measurements of intermediate species, elementary rate constant, and the kinetic pathways of non-equilibrium plasma by using laser absorption and Faraday rotational spectroscopy will be discussed. Development of low temperature plasma combustion kinetic mechanisms for…

SEMINAR: Material Opportunities for Next Generation Remotely Piloted Air Vehicles

November 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
EB3 2207, 911 Oval Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695

Abstract: Next-generation concepts for remotely piloted air vehicles seek to balance mission range, agility, and affordability. This increases the need for improved light-weight, low-cost structures with integrated functions. Composites which add functions like agile communication, thermal management, and aerodynamic shape change have the potential to enable mission range and agility without significantly adding weight or reducing internal payload volume. This presentation will discuss current research efforts within the Composites Branch of the Air Force Research Laboratory designed to investigate the…

SEMINAR: Void Superlattice Self-organization by Chemical Freezing of Phase Separation

December 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
EB3 2207, 911 Oval Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695

Abstract: Irradiation of crystalline solids by high-energy particles such as electrons, ions and neutrons disturb lattice atoms and can lead to detrimental degradation in nuclear materials by producing lattice defects of various sizes, often known as radiation damage. On the other hand, the excess energy and enhanced kinetics introduced by irradiation take the systems into states far-from-equilibrium, where several fascinating self-organization phenomena have been identified, suggesting the possibility of tailoring microstructure using irradiation. This talk focuses on the self-organization of…
