So, as everyone is quite likely aware, in-person seminars may not be happening for quite some time. So MCG seminars have moved online! Last week featured Mayank Vadsola presenting his MASc thesis seminar work. The thesis work was supervised by Dr. Catherine Mavriplis and Dr. Gbemeho Agbaglah. The title of his talk was “High-Order Spectral Element Method Simulation of Flow Past a 30P30N Three-Element High Lift Wing”. You can check out his talk here.
Last Friday, Curtis Livingston presented his MASc thesis work, giving a talk titled “Multi-structure turbulence in a boundary layer with a uniformly sheared free stream”. His thesis supervisor, professor Stavros Tavoularis, was present for the talk. Congratulations to Curtis and Prof. Tavoularis!

Yesterday, visiting PhD student Stefano Boccelli gave a talk on “Non-equilibrium aerospace plasmas: from hypersonics to electric propulsion”. Stefano is a visiting PhD student from Politecnico di Milano and the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics. He is visiting at uOttawa for a few months to work with Professor James McDonald and his team. Stefano’s work deals with the investigation of non-equilibrium fluid dynamic models for electric space propulsion applications. Thanks, Stefano, for a very interesting talk!
Last Friday, Andrée-Anne Dion-Dallaire presented her MASc work, titled “A 3D Solution-Adaptive Framework for Hyperbolic PDEs with Application to Explosive Dispersal of Radioactive Material”. Supervisor Professor James McDonald was present for the talk and obligatory photo. Congrats to Andrée-Anne and Prof. McDonald!
On Friday, Qiang Xiao presented his PhD thesis seminar, showcasing research work under the supervision of Professor Matei Radulescu. The title of Qiang’s talk was “Propagation Characteristics of 2H2/O2/2Ar Cellular Detonations in Exponential Horns.” Congratulation to Qiang and Prof. Radulescu!
Last Friday, William Morin presented his MASc thesis seminar titled “A New Moment Model for Radiative-Transport Prediction”. His MASc work was performed under the supervision of Professor James McDonald, who was also in attendance. Congrats, William!
Last Friday, Andre Fecteau presented his MASc thesis seminar. He gave a talk titled “An investigation of the onset of deflagration to detonation transition”. Supervisors Drs. James McDonald and Matei Radulescu were also present for the talk. Congrats, everyone!
Last Friday, MASc candidate Francois Forgues present his thesis seminar titled “Higher-Order Moment Models for Laminar Multiphase Flows Coupled to a Background Gas”. Supervisor Dr. James McDonald was present for the seminar and obligatory photo op. Thanks, both! Well done, Francois!
Last Friday, Seyed Alireza Miri presented his thesis seminar titled “Numerical Solution of Moment Equations Using a Discontinuous-Galerkin Hancock Method”. Supervisor Dr. James McDonald was present for the seminar and the photo-op. Congrats Alireza!
Last Wednesday, Abderrazzak Mouslim presented his MASc thesis seminar, a talk titled “Fluid-to-fluid scaling for supercritical heat transfer”. Supervisor Dr. Stavros Tavoularis was in attendance. Thanks to both for the photo but my iPhone didn’t do so well with the tough lighting conditions! I’ll have to bring the big camera next time.
Kicking off the first seminar of summer 2018, Shem Lau-Chapdelaine presented a small portion of his PhD work. The title of the talk was “Detonation model using Burger’s equation and a pulses reaction”. Unfortunately, thesis supervisor Dr. Matei Radulescu could not attend. Great talk, Shem!
Last Friday, MASc student Wentian Wang presented his thesis research work, performed under the joint supervision of Dr. Matei Radulescu and Dr. James MacDonald. Both supervisors were in attendance. The title of Wentian’s talk was “Models of fast flame propagation and transition to detonation”. Nice work, Wentian!
Last Wednesday, MASc candidate Dan Duong presented his thesis seminar titled “Accelerating and Decelerating Flows in a Complex Channel”. Supervisor Dr. Stavros Tavoularis was on hand during the presentation and then they both kindly let me take their photo. Well done, Dan, and congrats on getting close to finishing!
Last but not least for 2016, Aurelian Tanase presented his PhD thesis seminar, with PhD work completed under the supervision of Drs. Tavoularis and Groeneveld. The title of the talk was “flow and heat transfer in tubes with objects”.It was an interesting talk, followed by some delicious shawarma to round out our fall semester. Congrats Aurelian and here’s to 2017!
