Engineering Seminar: Why are Ambient Aerosols important? Understanding the Links between Air Quality and Climate

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 10:00am - 11:00am

Dr. Akua Asa-Awuku University of California – Riverside, Chemical and Environmental Engineering Bourns College of Engineering – Center for Environmental Research and Technology Aerosols, or particles, emitted into the air have adverse effects for regional air quality and health. In addition, aerosols significantly impact earth’s climate and the hydrological cycle. They can directly reflect the amount of incoming solar radiation into space; by acting as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), they can indirectly impact climate by affecting cloud albedo.

Joint Materials/Solid Mechanics Seminar

Monday, February 22, 2016 5:00pm - 6:00pm

“A New Finite Element Formulation for Modeling Liquid Shells and Its Application to Cell Membranes” Dr. Roger Sauer, RWTH Aachen University Abstract: This work presents a new finite element (FE) formulation for liquid shells that is constructed from a C1-continuous NURBS-based surface description. Both displacement-based and mixed FE formulations are considered. The latter is needed for area-incompressible material behavior, where penalty-type regularizations can lead to misleading results.
