  • Center of Autonomy and AI, Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and the Internet of Things, and Ming Hsieh Institute Seminar Series

    Wed, Nov 10, 2021 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Bardh Hoxha, Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRINA) in Ann Arbor, Michigan

    Talk Title: Verification and Control for Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: As Cyber-Physical Systems are becoming more autonomous, there is an increasing need for methods that ensure safety and reliability. In this talk, we present requirements-based approaches that can be used for automated testing, monitoring, and control synthesis of CPS. The methods utilize ideas from three important areas in CPS research: formal methods, machine learning, and control theory. We illustrate our methods on problems from the automotive industry.

    Biography: Bardh Hoxha is Senior Principal Scientist at Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRINA) in Ann Arbor, Michigan. His research interests include the development of practical testing and verification methods for autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). His research draws from areas such as formal methods, logics, control theory and machine learning. Bardh has published over three dozen papers on these methods to top level journals and conferences. Previously, Bardh was an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at Southern Illinois University. Prior to that, he completed his PhD in Computer Science at Arizona State University, where he received the Outstanding CS PhD student award. His thesis focused on simulation-based methods for testing CPS using formal requirements.

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Workshops & Infosessions

    With the d-clearance system opening on November 22nd for students in the M.S. Computer Science and Data Science Programs, you may have questions on how to select courses for your program or course sequencing. The Department of Computer Science will be hosting a special information session called "Course Planning 101."

    This session will answer important questions such as "Do I have a balanced course load?", "How do I know if a course is light or heavy?", and "How do I know which elective course is best to take?".

    We will also provide course sequencing tips for our students who are in the Applied Data Science program and interdisciplinary data science programs such as Communication and Healthcare Data Science.

    We will be taking live questions at the end of the session.

    Zoom link sent directly to CS/DS students on 11/4.

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Nov 10, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Dimitri Papamoschou, UC Irvine

    Talk Title: Development of a Linear Surface-Based Model for the Jet Noise Source

    Abstract: The seminar will discuss an effort to formulate an elementary physical model for the jet noise source that can be used for practical prediction of aircraft noise. Although the present analysis is confined to a round single-stream jet, the basic principles can be extended to more complex configurations. The model is defined on a radiator surface at the rotational/irrotational boundary of the jet on which the footprint of the vortical eddies, including their convective speed, is captured. The models building block at a given frequency is a linear pressure event with random origin and random helical mode. The probability density function for the event's axial origin is derived from the statistics of coherent structures in shear layers. The distribution for the helical mode is currently empirical and driven by the need to match the polar directivity of sound emission in the far field. The generic form of the event is a self-similar wavepacket with convective speed based on the mean centerline velocity and shape parameters determined by least-squares matching of the far-field sound pressure level at a wide range of frequencies and polar angles. Initial results indicate that the model reproduces, in a qualitative sense, key statistics of the jet acoustic field, including the near-field space-time correlation, the broadening of the far-field spectral density with increasing polar angle from the jet axis, and the coherence between the near and far fields. For the latter, the analysis indicates that the rapid decline in the coherence with increasing polar angle is primarily due to the randomness of the event's axial origin.

    Biography: Dimitri Papamoschou is a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at University of California, Irvine (UCI). He received his PhD in Aeronautics at Caltech. His research interests include compressible turbulence, jet and fan aeroacoustics, and advanced noise source imaging methods. In jet aeroacoustics, he has shown the potential for noise reduction by asymmetric distortion of the jet velocity field, a concept that has led to several patents. He has also developed low-cost predictive methods for this type of noise reduction based on a special formulation of the acoustic analogy. At UCI he has served in various administrative roles, including department chair, associate dean, and interim dean. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and recipient of the 2017 AIAA Aeroacoustics Award. He serves as an associate editor of the AIAA Journal.
