MEAM Seminar: “Multiscale Interactions in Multiphase Turbulent Flows: Fundamentals to Applications”

Recent advances in experimental measurements and numerical simulations has allowed us to discover new phenomena in multiphase turbulence (a flow regime characterized by chaotic and irregular motion in the presence of immersed surfaces/bodies). In this talk, I will discuss some of these new discoveries and their importance both from a fundamental and an application viewpoint. […]

MEAM Doctoral Dissertation Defense: “Problems in Nonlinear Homogenization: Bounds, Estimates, Macroscopic Instabilities, and Post-Bifurcation Response”

This talk is concerned with the use of nonlinear homogenization to study the effective response of composites. We look to illustrate the effect that constitutive assumptions have on the methods by which such estimates can be obtained, as well as on the actual effective, or homogenized, response of the material. Although helpful in ensuring existence […]
