2012 Susan T. Brown, Ph.D.
Research Experience for Undergraduates ◦ You will participate in meaningful research ◦ You will work independently ◦ You will work as part of a team ◦ You will learn something new ◦ You will experience: What it is like to do academic research in CFD for Engineering problems What it is like to do academic research at University of Hawai‘i ◦ We will advance our department research ◦ We will experience what it is like to have you on our team We hope to have published research We strive for maximum discovery with minimum frustration!
To participate in research at this level, you need expertise/knowledge on three levels 1.Theory of fluids 2.Numerical concepts, use of numerical code 3.High performance computing issues for large problems We will provide sessions to review/augment your basic knowledge in all these areas over the next two weeks You will also begin your projects with your mentors, and apply what you learn.
June 12-13, 2012 – Joint Hawai‘i-Korea Workshop on Engineering of Coastal Structures for Tsunami and Coastal Storm Surge Hazards ◦ Mandatory for Matt, Stephanie, Jordan, and Adam ◦ Others will decide with mentor if they will attend If they attend, let Dr. Riggs know, so he can register them. ◦ Time: 1:30 pm – 6:30 pm. Students are expected to work on their research projects in the am.
Friday, June 15, 2012 ◦ Visit to Pacific Tsunami Warning Center ◦ Mandatory for all students Sunday, June 3, 2012 ◦ Picnic at Fort DeRussy Beach Park ◦ Not Mandatory, but lots of fun Every Friday except June 15 ◦ Brown bag lunch in Holmes 287 ◦ Bring lunch and a drink ◦ If I am in town, you get cookies or dessert, if not, you get me on conference call or skype. (I’ll still be eating cookies.) ◦ Be prepared to give a 5 minute summary of how it’s going with your work and discuss everyone else’s work ◦ Very informal – intended to help and avoid time-wasting blocks. Also to leverage each other’s knowledge. ◦ Mandatory for all students.
