Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director of ME Graduate Studies Ugo Piomelli will be the keynote lecturer at the 2005 Research Symposium on Environmental and Applied Fluid Dynamics, to be held on May 19 at 110 Hodson Hall, JHU Homewood campus.
Prof. Piomelli will discuss the generation of turbulence in hybrid computations in which large-eddy simulations are coupled to the solution of the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations. Piomelli was recently awarded Fellow status by the Institute of Physics in September 2004 and is also a Fellow in the American Physical Society (APS) and an Associate Fellow in the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
In addition to Piomelli?s keynote lecture, the one-day event will involve graduate students and post-doctoral fellows presenting their ongoing research in fluid mechanics conducted at both Johns Hopkins University and University of Maryland, College Park.
The Symposium is presented by the UMD Burgers Program for Fluid Dynamics and the Johns Hopkins? Center for Environmental and & Applied Fluid Mechanics.
