    2020 marks the 10th year in which the Engineering Writing Program and the Viterbi School have brought improvisational performance techniques and interactions to engineering students through a co- curricular partnership with the School for Dramatic Arts.

    This classroom innovation converges technology and social phenomena to spur creative thought, encourage diversity, and generate group cohesion.

    Join in on the fun with your classmates, instructors, a research scientist, and a chatbot in an interactive and collaborative learning environment!

  • AME PhD Student Seminar

    Fri, Oct 30, 2020 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Arturo Cajal, USC AME PhD Student

    Talk Title: Modeling natural transition in RANS simulations

    Abstract: One approach for improving the accuracy of Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) simulations is to model the transition from laminar to turbulent flow process, particularly for low Reynolds numbers and transitional flow applications. In this work, two RANS turbulence models and three RANS transitional models, with different formulation approaches, are assessed and compared. Physics-based models offer a broader range of applicability because no empirical correlations are needed to model the transition process. Additionally, these models avoid some of the current Computational Fluid Dynamics limitations such as the use of integral quantities in unstructured grids and/or parallel computations. Thus, the physics-based Laminar Kinetic Energy model was chosen to include the effects of crossflow instabilities to make it more robust and potentially improve its predictive capability.

    Biography: Arturo is a Ph.D. student working in Prof. A. Uranga Aerodynamics Design and Research Laboratory. His research focuses on modeling transition from laminar to turbulent flow for low Reynolds number flows. Arturo received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 2016, and his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from USC in 2018.

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Student Activity

    Ever wonder how classic video game soundtracks became so memorable? Come join us this Friday, October 30 at 5:00 PM PST for How Technological Limitations Created Iconic Game Soundtracks with student speaker Noah Lee! Various jumps in game technology have resulted in the iconic video game music that we know and love today. Noah will cover how exactly these old soundtracks were created, as well as how they became a highly desired aspect of the indie scene.

    Noah Lee is currently a junior at USC majoring in Interactive Media and Game Design. Noah has experience as a music composer and game designer. We ask that attendees please bring headphones, as this presentation is an audio experience as well as visual! No prior experience with music or sound design is necessary. Have any questions for Noah? Stick around after the presentation for a quick Q&A session!
