*CANCELLED* Biomedical Engineering Seminar - "Visualizing and Quantifying Tissue Oxygen Tension with Porphyrin Toolkits and SMART Bandages

Thursday, March 05, 2015 9:00am - 10:00am

Conor Evans, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Dermatology Massachusetts Institute of Technology Oxygen plays a profound role in the biology of life. Impaired oxygen delivery has significant consequences, from ischemic injury and chronic wounds to therapeutically resistant carcinoma. A major challenge in assessing the oxygenation of tissues is the fact that oxygen itself is rather difficult to directly detect.

Joint Materials/Solid Mechanics Seminar Series: "Phase-field modeling of crack propagation"

Monday, March 09, 2015 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Abstract: Crack propagation is the dominant mode of mechanical failure of most man-made and naturally occurring materials. Understanding this phenomenon poses a number of challenges. Crack propagation is a truly multiscale phenomenon with no clear separation of scale between atomic and continuum scales. Consequently, how to formulate equations of motion for cracks is still an open question.

Fluids Seminar: Chaotic Stirring in a Simple Model of a 3D Eddy

Tuesday, March 10, 2015 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Lawrence J. Pratt Senior Scientist Physical Oceanography Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Woods Hole, MA Chaotic Stirring in a Simple Model of a 3D Eddy My talk will explore the process of chaotic advection and its role in the stirring and mixing of three-dimensional flows in the ocean and atmosphere. I will examine an eddy-like circulation with a vertical overturning component. This flow shares some basic features with ocean eddies that have upwelling/downwelling circulations, convection cells and hurricanes.
