The 31 st Scottish Fluid Mechanics Meeting
This year's Scottish Fluid Mechanics Meeting will be held at the University of Aberdeen on Tuesday the 29 th of May. This lively and informal meeting will showcase any and all aspects of fluid mechanics from across Scotland. We will have posters, as well as talks, in order to give...
The hidden causes of volatile behaviour around non-smooth events-
Abstract: There are three things vital to a good understanding of a system: analysis, simulation, and experiment. Finding agreement between these three might be difficult if a system is very large and complex, if it is very noisy, or if it contains nonsmooth events (like impact, switches, or discontinuous parameters). Obviously a large complex system might...
The 9th Engineering Postgraduate Research Symposium-
The annual Engineering Postgraduate Research Symposium presents a snapshot of the work of Postgraduate Research students within the School of Engineering, spanning the diverse fields of Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Petroleum Engineering.
Diffusion and adsorption- Fundamentals and transient measurement methods-
Abstract of the talk: Diffusion and adsorption of gases on solid surfaces are two important, highly correlated process steps which occur in numerous applications such as heterogeneous catalysis, gas storage processes, e.g. in shales, gas separation processes in chemical industry, host-guest systems, e.g. gas hydrates or MOF's, membrane processes, adsorption processes,...
ABE - A method to achieving low Internet latency and high throughput-
Recently proposed active queue management mechanisms can minimise the time packets spend enqueued at a network bottleneck by deploying shallow buffers with short-term burst tolerance. However, this shallow buffering causes noticeable performance degradation in the throughput for a path delay is higher above typical intra-country levels. Using a less-aggressive backoff...
A few snapshots of Environmental Fluid Mechanics: turbulence, sediments, and flow-biota interactions-
Environmental Fluid Mechanics (EFM) has emerged at the interfaces of fluid mechanics, hydraulics, hydrology, oceanography, and meteorology to deal with multiple problems involving environmental fluid flows. The talk will briefly introduce EFM and outline the typical problems addressed by this fairly new discipline. Then, a few ‘snapshots’ of EFM will...
External Hazard Factors: a new challenge for Safety Science-
by Professor Valerio Cozzani, University of Bologna, Italy
Dynamics & Control of Rotors via Active Fluid Film Bearings - An Overview-
Seminar talk by Ilmar Ferreira Santos, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark.
RV Jones Lecture - Space resources: engineering beyond planetary boundaries-
Launching material into orbit is a hugely expensive business. But rather than lifting material from the bottom of the Earth's deep gravity well, perhaps we can use material that's already out there.
