The Department of Civil Engineering’s 2017 Richard J. Carroll Memorial Lecture will be held on Wednesday, March 8, in Hodson Hall. This year’s lecturer is Ahsan Kareem, from the NatHaz Modeling Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame.
Abstract: A general overview of the basic techniques for quantification of wind loads and their effects using analytical, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and model-based and data driven simulation schemes, code and standards based procedures, and experimental and full-scale monitoring and their hybrid combination will be presented. Recent advances in analysis, optimization, modeling, simulation and identification tools, modeling frameworks, data analytics, and cyberinfrastructure enabled platforms hold the promise of offering better understanding in solving these complex problems. The seminar will provide a guided tour of the state-of-the-art and the next frontiers in the wind effects through the eye of a cyberinfrastructure enabled platform.
Bio: Ahsan Kareem is the Robert M. Moran Professor of Engineering and the Director of the NatHaz Modeling Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame. He is elected President of the International Association for Wind Engineering (IAWE). He has been awarded numerous honors, including the White House Office of Science and Technology’s Presidential Young Investigator Award, as well as ASCE’s Theodore von Karman Medal, James Croes Medal, Robert H. Scanlan Medal, Jack E. Cermak Medal and State-of-the-Art Award. Other honors include: induction into the Offshore Technology Conference Hall of Fame; Distringuished Member of ASCE; IAWE’s Alan G. Davenport Medal; IASSAR (International Association for Structural Safety and Reliability)’s Distinguished Research Award. He has served as a High-End Foreign Expert at Tongji University and delivered the 2013 Scruton Lecturer at the Institute of Civil Engineers, London, UK. He has been appointed Honorary Professor at several universities overseas, serves on the Editorial Board of several international journals including Engineering by the Chinese Academy of Engineering and has recently co-authored two books. He is an elected Member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering and a Foreign Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering.
Dr. Judith Mitrani-Reiser is an acclaimed expert on studying the impacts of disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis on infrastructure and community. At NIST, she leads a team of multi-disciplinary staff in performing investigations of structural failures that caused significant loss of life or significant potential threat of life. The recommendations and findings from her team play substantial role in improving codes, standards, and practices for building structures. She served as a faculty member in the Department of Civil Engineering at Johns Hopkins University for eight years before she joined NIST in the fall of 2016. She also held a joint faculty position from the Department of Emergency Medicine at Johns Hopkins Medicine Institute. During her time at Hopkins, she was actively involved in several outreach and mentorship programs such as Preparing Future Faculty Teaching Academy (PFFTA), STEM Achievement in Baltimore Elementary Schools (SABES), and Gateway Sciences Initiative (GSI).
Join the Johns Hopkins Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design for a review of many exciting healthcare design projects at the CBID Annual Fall Showcase & Shark Tank.
An alumni start-up panel will be featured this year and it’s not to be missed. The event will also include a Shark Tank competition with a panel of tough judges and real cash prizes. Light refreshments will be provided.
The Johns Hopkins Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design, American University of Beirut, and the Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering hosts the first ever join U.S.-Middle East design team hackathon.
The hackathon is focused on health needs in humanitarian settings, with students, faculty, and experts in Baltimore and Beirut.
