Dr. Parkinson
Dr. Alan Parkinson will be presenting his Final Lecture at Graduate Seminar on February 24th. The lecture will begin at 4:00pm in the event space of the Engineering Building (204 EB). All students are welcome to attend.  The title of his lecture is: "Alan Parkinson: A Reflection on Faith".  Alan Parkinson’s career at BYU spanned 37 years where he served as a Faculty Member, Department Chair of Mechanical Engineering (1995 - 2001), Associate Dean (2003 - 2005) and Dean (2005 – 2016) of the college of Engineering. Alan received a PhD from the University of Illinois (1982) and an MBA from BYU (…
Dr. Stimpson
Research Seminar will be held Tuesday, February 11th, 2020 at 4:00pm in EB 325.  Dr. Curtis Stimpson: Honeywell Aerospace Using Additive Manufacturing to Enable Advanced Turbine Cooling Additive manufacturing (AM) is expected to enable improvements in turbine engine cooling. One technical challenge to implementing AM for turbine components is that the AM process produces relatively large surface roughness. Because there are no known smoothing processes for small, internal geometries, it is necessary to understand the impact roughness has on the cooling of turbine vanes and blades. Emerging…
Dr. Zheng
Graduate Seminar will be held Monday, February 10th, 2020 at 4:00pm in CB 256. Dr. Charlie Zheng of USU will be speaking.  Multi-Physics Multi-Scale Simulation of Flow and Wave Propagation With the advent of computing power in recent decades, simulations of realistic physical phenomena have become practically feasible that very often involve multi-physics and multi-scales. In this presentation, Dr. Zheng will discuss: • Research capabilities in Dr. Zheng’s M2F2 lab • Bio-inspired flow simulation around multiple moving and morphing structures using the immersed-boundary method • Aircraft…
