  • INCOSE Webinar 106

    Wed, Nov 15, 2017 @ 08:00 AM - 09:00 AM

    Systems Architecting and Engineering, USC Viterbi School of Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Troy A. Peterson, System Strategy, Inc.

    Talk Title: Systems Engineering Transformation

    Abstract: While complex systems transform the landscape, the Systems Engineering discipline is also experiencing a transformation to model based discipline. In alignment with this, one of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) strategic objectives is to accelerate this transformation. INCOSE is building a broad community that promotes and advances model based methods. This model based transformation is necessary to advance the discipline and handle the seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components across domains and traditional system boundaries. This presentation will cover current and planned INCOSE activities directed at accelerating this transformation.

    Biography: Troy Peterson is Vice President and Fellow at System Strategy, Inc. a systems consulting business. Previous to this role Troy was a Booz Allen Fellow and the Chief Systems Engineer responsible for instituting capabilities to manage complexity, engineer resiliency and speed innovation. Prior to joining Booz Allen, Troy worked at Ford Motor Company as a Lead Manufacturing Engineering and as an entrepreneur operating a design and management consulting business. Troy has led several international projects and large teams in the delivery of complex systems. His experience spans commercial, government and academic environments across all product life cycle phases. Recent engagements include system projects related to autonomy, contingency basing, combat and tactical vehicles and developing engineering capability within organizations responsible for research, development, acquisition and system of systems engineering and integration. His impact has led to his appointment to six different boards to improve engineering education and method application. He frequently speaks at leading engineering conferences and was recently appointed by INCOSE as the lead for transforming Systems Engineering to model based discipline. Troy also he leads the Transformational Working Groups, is Co-Chair of the MBSE Patterns Working Group and is the INCOSE Michigan Chapter Past President. Troy received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University, his M.S. in Technology Management from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and an advanced graduate certificate in Systems Design and Management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He holds INCOSE Systems Engineering, PMI Project Management, and ASQ Six Sigma Black Belt certifications.

    Speaker: Victor Preciado, University of Pennsylvania

    Talk Title: From Local Network Structure to Global Graph Spectrum

    Series: Fall 2017 Joint CSC@USC/CommNetS-MHI Seminar Series

    Abstract: Using methods from algebraic graph theory and convex optimization we study the relationship between local structural features of a network and global spectral properties. In particular, we derive expressions for the so-called spectral moments of a graph in terms of local structural measurements, such as subgraph densities. Furthermore, we propose a series of semidefinite programs to compute bounds on the spectral radius, and other spectral properties, from a truncated sequence of spectral moments. Using our tools, we illustrate how important spectral properties of real-world networks are strongly constrained by local structural features.


    Biography: Victor M. Preciado received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2008. He is currently the Raj and Neera Singh Assistant Professor of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Networked & Social Systems Engineering (NETS) program, the Warren Center for Network & Data Sciences, and the Applied Math and Computational Science (AMCS) program. He is a recipient of the 2017 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award. His main research interests lie at the intersection of Big Data and Network Science; in particular, in using innovative mathematical and computational approaches to capture the essence of complex, high-dimensional dynamical systems. Relevant applications of this line of research can be found in the context of socio-technical networks, brain dynamical networks, healthcare operations, biological systems, and critical technological infrastructure.

  • Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering Seminar

    Wed, Nov 15, 2017 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Tim Lieuwen, Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Unsteady Combustion Problems in Modern Energy and Propulsion Systems

    Abstract: The operational limits of modern power generation and propulsion devices are strongly influenced by the combustor. For example, combustion instabilities have emerged as one of the leading challenges associated with low emissions combustion technologies. More fundamentally, the combustion instability problem involves the nonlinear interactions of harmonic flow disturbances with flames in a highly turbulent flow. This talk will describe the key processes controlling the flame response - flame anchoring, excitation of wrinkles by flow oscillations, tangential convection of wrinkles upon the flame, and kinematic restoration.

    Biography: Tim Lieuwen is a professor and the David S. Lewis, Jr. Chair at Georgia Institute of Technology, and the Executive Director of the Strategic Energy Institute. He has a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and is a licensed professional engineer in the state of Georgia. He leads a diverse research group investigating a range of problems associated with clean power, energy, and combustion, including such issues as emissions, efficiency, and alternative fuels. Prof. Lieuwen has edited/written four books, written 7 book chapters and over 300 papers, and received 5 patents.
