  • Verizon Executive / USC student discussion - What comes after Zoom and Entertainment Apps

    Wed, Mar 24, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Student Activity

    This event is hosted by the USC Entertainment Technology Center and CS students are invited to participate.

    The Entertainment Technology Center @ USC's -Executive Coffee with- "series is designed to give students and executives the opportunity to share ideas and to network during this period of distance learning.

    It is a win-win. The students have a structured low-pressure discussion with a senior industry executive. The executive explores the perspective and ideas of students who have expressed an interest in a topic that the executive cares about.
    Wednesday, March 24, 12:00pm-1:00pm PT
    Lead Executive: Sanyogita Shamsunder, Vice President of Product Strategy, Innovation and Operations, Verizon
    Student/Executive Discussion Topic: What comes after Zoom and Entertainment Apps?

    What comes after Zoom for things like virtual events, watching together with distant friends, and sharing information and ideas? What do you want in an immersive experience like virtual or mixed reality? What do you want the user interface (UI) and experience (UX) to be like? What are your expectations for personal avatar appearance, capabilities, and behavior? What engaging entertainment or information serve experiences do you expect to be available in 3-5 years that don't exist today?

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Mar 24, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Daniel Bodony, Univ. Illinois Urbana-Champaign

    Talk Title: The Fluid Mechanics of Hypersonic Fluid-Structure Interactions

    Abstract: The interaction of high-speed aerodynamics with thermo-mechanically compliant structures is a critical design consideration for single-use and reusable hypersonic vehicles. Historical techniques for predicting fluid-thermal-structure interaction (FTSI) are insufficient for envisioned hypersonic flight systems, leading to a resurgent effort towards understanding, modeling, and predicting FTSI-coupled systems. In this talk, we will present the impact of FTSI on two fundamental scenarios -- boundary layer transition and shock-boundary layer interaction -- informed using a combination of stability analyses and direct numerical simulation techniques. In each scenario, focus will be given to the fluid mechanics involved in the fluid-structure coupling. Supporting details on the relevant theoretical and numerical details required for accurate prediction will also be discussed.

    Biography: Daniel J. Bodony is the Blue Waters Professor, Donald Biggar Willett Faculty Scholar and Associate Head for Graduate Programs in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois. He received his Ph.D. in Aeronautics & Astronautics from Stanford University in 2005. After working at the NASA Ames/Stanford Center for Turbulence Research he joined the University of Illinois in late 2006 as an assistant professor. He received an NSF CAREER award in 2012 in Fluid Dynamics, is an Associate Fellow of the AIAA, and received the University of Illinois' Promotion with Distinction Award in 2020
