MEAM Seminar: “Time and Rate Dependent Fracture of Polymer Gels and Interfaces”

November 9 at 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Fracture of materials and interfaces is often time and rate dependent. The underlying mechanisms for the time and rate dependent fracture may include local molecular processes, viscoelasticity, and poroelasticity (solvent diffusion coupled with deformation). In this talk, I will present our recent works on two different mechanisms. First, the effects of poroelasticity on fracture of […]

Semiconductor sales will reach over $500 billion worldwide in 2021, a gigantic industry that keeps on growing with increasing demand for faster, more powerful, and smaller chips. However, as we keep scaling, the silicon (Si) transistor will soon reach its physical limit, and there is a pressing need to find an alternative post-Si material to […]

CIS 189 Guest Lecture: “Optimization in Practice”

November 9 at 5:15 PM - 6:15 PM

Abstract: Discrete optimization plays a critical role in solving various resource allocation problems within the industry. In this talk, we study problems from the two extremes of the optimization landscape; operational decision-making in real-time and resource provisioning for future considerations. Motivated by real-world business requirements ranging from load balancing in heterogeneous environments to privacy concerns […]
