Nuclear Engineering Seminar Series: MOCkingbird: Unstructured Mesh Method of Characteristics for Multiphysics Simulation of Nuclear Reactors

22 Deike Building
4 p.m.

High-fidelity, predictive simulation of nuclear reactors requires multiphysics analysis. Within a reactor heat conduction, solid mechanics, neutronics, isotopic depletion, chemistry, fluid flow and material science are inextricably linked.

Mechanical Engineering Seminar Series: Life is Good: a Journey from Energy Storage to Protein Therapeutics

26 Hosler Building
4 p.m.

Human civilization is associated with the harvest and utilization of solar energy. Driven by massive use of fossil fuels, the first industrial revolution (mainly driven by coal) and the second industrial revolution (mainly driven by oil) have established the modern civilization yet with ecological deterioration. Developing technologies that enable more effective energy harvest, storage and utilization has emerged as one of the most essential topics.

Additional Information:

*Snacks will be available before the seminar at 3:50 p.m.
