It’s movie time! Students from INBT’s summer class Science Communication for Scientists and Engineers: Video News Releases will present their final projects and be available to answer questions. Film topics this year include drug delivery, lab-on-a-chip technology, and how cells become cancerous. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the students’ work up on the big screen. This event is open to the entire Johns Hopkins community.
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.
