  • AME PhD Student Seminar

    Fri, Nov 06, 2020 @ 03:00 AM - 04:00 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Shilpa Vijay, USC AME PhD Student

    Talk Title: Interfacial thermal transport in partially porous channel flow at turbulent flow regimes

    Abstract: We investigate interfacial thermal transport in a partially porous channel via laboratory experiments to evaluate the effect of porous medium microstructure at varying Reynolds numbers. Previous direct numerical simulations for partially porous channel flow indicate that large vortex structures enhance turbulent heat transfer at the porous medium-unobstructed
    flow interface. Commercially-available Aluminum foams with nominal pore sizes 10 ppi and 40 ppi are attached to a heater block and placed in a forced convection arrangement adjacent to an unobstructed channel. Measurements of pressure drop and temperatures are made across the porous section for bulk Reynolds number varying from 500 to 1500 to characterize friction factors and Nusselt numbers. Heat transfer efficiency with respect
    to pumping power requirements is evaluated. Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements made at a subset of these Reynolds numbers are being analyzed to test for the emergence of interfacial vortex structures, and quantify their effect on interfacial thermal transport.

    Biography: Shilpa Vijay is a Ph.D. student under Professor Mitul Luhar. Her research focuses on characterizing thermal transport over porous interfaces in turbulent regimes. Shilpa has a B.S. in Civil Engineering from College of Engineering Pune in India (2016), and an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from USC (2018).

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Dr. Ajay Malshe, Purdue

    Talk Title: Nature's Tool Box for Smart Manufacturing Enterprise

    Abstract: Speaker will discuss simplicity, elegance, and robustness as foundations for innovations for equity in a smart and inclusive enterprise. This talk will discuss functions, structures, and resilience demonstrated by nature in a sustainable ecosystem. Speaker will share multiple examples to illustrate lessons materials and manufacturing disciplines can learn and apply to advance state of the art for better multifunctionality,
    adaptability, survivability, and sustainability.

  • USC MEGA Student Speaker Series

    Fri, Nov 06, 2020 @ 05:00 PM - 07:00 PM

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Student Activity

    Want to learn how to get started with motion capture techniques at home? Come join student speaker Steven Harmon this Friday, November 6 at 5:00 PM PST for an in-depth look at what motion capture is and how you can use it in your own projects! Steven will be covering the basics of traditional mocap techniques, the pros and cons of each type of capture, a basic pipeline overview, and four solutions for bedroom mocap (Kinect, VRIK avatars, AR & pose estimation, and iPhone face/lip sync plugins).

    Steven Harmon is currently a senior at USC studying Interactive Media and Game Design. Steven has experience as an independent game developer with over 60 published games to date. He also has experience working at House of Moves and Activision. Students from all backgrounds are welcome to join! Have any questions for Steven? Stick around after the presentation for a quick Q&A session!
