TITLE: Probabilistic Prognostics and Health Management for Fatigue-critical Components using High-fidelity Models ADVISOR: Dr. Fuh-Gwo Yuan DATE & TIME: Friday, October 27, 2017 at 1pm LOCATION: EB3 - 3115   ABSTRACT: The use of in situ health monitoring to calibrate predictive models can drastically reduce uncertainty when forming a prognosis of remaining useful life. For fatigue crack growth applications, this typically involves a Bayesian inference procedure that requires thousands to millions of model evaluations. Traditionally, prognostics and health management (PHM) approaches have…

TITLE: Investigation of spray and combustion of piezo-electric fuel injector for gasoline direct inject engines ADVISOR: Dr. Tiegang Fang DATE & TIME: Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 10 AM LOCATION: EB3 - 3115   ABSTRACT:  Experimental fuel spray and combustion investigation of multiple gasoline-like fuels was conducted in an optically accessible constant-volume chamber using an outwardly opening piezoelectric fuel injector. The ambient pressure for non-reacting spray experiments was varied from 0.01 bar to 12.5 bar. Spray characteristics, including spray penetration length, spray angle and spray front…
