Prediction of Drag for Rough Wall Boundary Layer Flows

Dr. Karen A. Flack, Professor, Mechanical Engineering Department at the United States Naval Academy, will discuss the challenges to represent this wide range of surface conditions and potential scales to characterize engineering roughness including biofouling in predictive correlations.…

Characterizing Strain Localization and Dynamic Instabilities in Soft Materials

Dr. Jin Yang, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will present our recent research progress in experimentally characterizing the
mechanical properties of soft materials from low to ultra-high strain-rates and building theoretical
models of …
