Title: Development of an Eulerian-Lagrangian Method to Simulate Dispersed Multiphase Flows with Complex Spray Dynamics Advisor: Dr. Jack Edwards Date: Friday, October 26, 2018 at 2 PM Location: EB3 - Rm# 3235 Abstract: An Eulerian-Lagrangian framework was developed to allow for the simulation of dispersed multi-phase flow. The Lagrangian description of the discrete phase comes from the droplet tracking engine, which was developed as a part of this work. This was coupled with the existing CFD code REACTMB to allow…

Title: Study on Flexoelectric materials, structures and its applications Advisor: Dr.Xiaoning Jiang Date: Monday, December 3, 2018 Time & Location: 1 PM in EBII Room # 3235B   Abstract: Flexoelectricity defines the electric polarization induced by mechanical strain gradient, or the mechanical strain generated under an electric field gradient. Compared with the more widely applied electromechanical coupling effect, piezoelectricity, flexoelectricity is free of the material symmetry limitation and exists in all dielectrics in principle. The dissertation has focused on three…
