Verification and Validation in Simulations of Complex Engineered Systems
03 Jan 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Robert Moser
Computational simulation is a ubiquitous tool in engineering. Further, the explosion of computational capabilities over the last several decades has resulted in the use of computational models of unprecedented complexity to make critical design and operation decisions. One potential benefit...
Thermal Property Measurements of High Pressure Metal Hydrides
02 Jun 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Scott M. Flueckiger
Metal hydrides are potential materials for onboard hydrogen storage. Thermal property measurements are needed to optimize the thermal management design of metal hydride storage systems which require a measurement technique developed with considerations of the thermodynamics of the hydriding...

BP Oil Spill Physics Challenge
17 Feb 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Steve Wereley
On May 13 Professor Wereley used optical feature tracking to estimate the volume flow of oil from the on-going BP Macondo oil field spill. Several other independent scientists also performed similar measurements at about the same time. These several measurements were all in the ballpark of...
