Jomela Meng Receives 2016 Richard B. Chapman Memorial Award

06-03-16

Jomela Meng, a graduate student working with Professor Tim Colonius, is a recipient of the 2016 Richard B. Chapman Memorial Award. Her research leveraged direct numerical simulations to investigate the fundamental flow physics associated with single droplet aerobreakup. The Richard B. Chapman Memorial Award is given to an EAS graduate student in hydrodynamics who has distinguished himself or herself in research.

Vedran Coralic Receives 2015 Richard B. Chapman Memorial Award

06-22-15

Vedran Coralic, a graduate student working with Professor Tim Colonius, is the recipient of the 2015 Richard B. Chapman Memorial Award. Dr. Coralic performed numerical simulations of shocked-bubble dynamics in the microvasculature in order to characterize the mechanisms of tissue injury resulting from the collapse of preexisting bubbles in shockwave lithotripsy. The Richard B. Chapman Memorial Award is given to an EAS graduate student in hydrodynamics who has distinguished himself or herself in research.

Modeling Jet Engine Noise

11-06-12

Tim Colonius, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and his group have been building models to understand how jet engines generate noise and the Office of Naval Research recently awarded him funding to develop a better way to control the din. “Now we are getting a much more detailed picture of the actual mechanism by which the turbulence makes the sound,” Colonius says.
