Nonlinear Mechanics of Soft Fibrous Materials, ISSEC, Dec., 3-4
Associate Professor Luis Dorfmann was chosen to give the Plenary Broberg Lecture at the Joint Symposium of Irish Mechanics Society & Irish Society for Scientific & Engineering Computation (ISSEC) held December 3-4, University College Dublin. This lecture "Nonlinear Mechanics of Soft Fibrous Materials" includes overviews of active materials and connective tissue and presents new data showing the mechanical response in uniaxial and planar biaxial extension.
Date: December 3-4, 2015
University College Dublin, Ireland
Trends in Mechanically Compressed Sediment Behavior with Stress and Plasticity, Nov. 16, 2015
Research Professor Jack Germaine was chosen as the inaugural speaker for BSCES' first Charles C. Ladd Memorial Lecture. This lecture presents results of an extensive experimental program that establishes a new understanding of the variation in behavior as a function of stress and plasticity. Trends in mechanical behavior are very consistent with liquid limit. One very important outcome is the observation that clay-rich sediments do not follow the rules of normalized behavior. This has resulted in a significant modification to the SHANSEP equation and created a need for a new generation of soil models.
Water, Systems, Science, and Society Under Global Change
The Water: Systems, Science & Society (WSSS) program is proud to support the 42nd annual Universities Council on Water Resources Conference, hosted jointly with the National Institutes for Water Resources and the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. This year's theme "Water Systems, Science, and Society Under Global Change" embraces the many water challenges confronting our communities, and inspires opportunities to address them as scientists, program managers, civic leaders, and policy makers.
WATER & CITIES: Shaping the Flow of Our Urban Future, April 11, 2014
On April 11, 2014, the Water: Systems, Science & Society (WSSS) program hosted its fifth annual symposium, "Water & Cities." At the symposium, students, academics, and professionals from the public, private and non-governmental sectors explored the past, present, and future challenges faced by global cities and the innovations and mobilization that enable us to shape our future as an urban society. Symposium panel topics included urbanization and the water cycle, urban resilience and disaster management, regional systems and planning, and water and society.
