CD Injection Molding I: Navier-Stokes
10 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell
State simplifying assumptions which can be made regarding radial injection molding of liquid polycarbonate polymer into a CD mold, and simplify the cylindrical form of the Navier-Stokes equations accordingly.
CD Injection Molding II: Shear Stress
09 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell
Solve the cylindrical Navier-Stokes equations simplified in Part I to give the velocity profile in radial injection molding of a CD, and calculate the shear stress based on this velocity profile.
Radiative Cooling of an Aluminum Cube
Show that radiative cooling of an aluminum cube is Newtonian (uniform temperature), and calculate time required to cool through a certain temperature range by radiation alone.
Bottom Filled Mold
07 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Matthew John M. Krane
Calculation of mold filling times, with and without a constant height of metal in a riser. Problem uses modified Bernoulli equation for the mechanical energy balance and the students are asked to determine which resistances are significant.
Cast-a-Box: Casting Conditions and Macroporosity
07 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell
An illustration of three-dimensional finite difference simulation of heat conduction with phase change and complex boundary conditions, this requires students to adjust boundary conditions to make the top surface of a regular hexahedral "casting" to freeze last, eliminating...
Batch and Continuous Flow Reactors
30 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell
Derive expressions for productivity of plug flow and perfectly mixed continuous flow reactors, discuss quality, and describe advantages of batch reactors.
30 Mar 2019 |
Estimate flow rate of blood through two types of porous filter: an array of tubes and a packed bed of solid spheres.
Blood Flow and Vascular Deposits

Casting of a Cylindrical Part in a Thermally Resistive Mold
30 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Matthew John M. Krane
Use of integral analysis for development of approximate solution for solidification in cylindrical thermally resistive mold.
Stokes Flow Past a Fluid Sphere
20 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell
The solution to the Stokes flow equations for viscous flow past a viscous sphere, which in the limiting cases of zero and infinite interior viscosity gives the drag force on bubbles and solid spheres respectively.
A Heat Transfer Calculation
Outline the steps required to calculate the temperature at the interface between a stationary solid and a fluid flowing past it.

Critical Measurements to Enable the Use of Polymers in Membranes, Composites, and Impact Mitigation
05 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher L. Soles
In this presentation I will present an overview of my research groups activities in these three areas, highlighting the importance of polymer structure and dynamics in establishing the functional properties of the polymers that enable the technology. For the sake of this presentation, I...
The Life and Death of Turbulence
21 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Nigel Goldenfeld
In this presentation, I propose that turbulence is most fruitfully regarded as a problem in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, and will show that this perspective explains turbulent drag behavior measured over 80 years, and makes predictions that have been experimentally tested in 2D...
