(February 3rd, 2020)

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 wake vortex dynamics and formation flight dynamics for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
• Vortex dynamic simulation for high-lift aero-acoustic problems
• Sound propagation in complex geometries and multiple materials
• Combined Lagrange/Euler simulation for nano-scaled surface flow


Dr. Zhongquan Charlie Zheng is currently a Professor and Head of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at Utah State University. He is Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and Associate Fellow of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). Before joining Utah State University, he was a faculty member in Aerospace Engineering Department at University of Kansas, and prior to that, in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Department at Kansas State University.  He had conducted research at NASA Langley Research Center before he joined academia. He is currently Secretary of the Executive Committee of ASME Fluids Engineering, Associate Editor of Journal of Vibration and Acoustics, and the Honors and Awards Chair of AIAA Atmosphere and Space Environment TC.
