The accuracy of such simulations requires using the right interatomic potential, or force field. Researchers with the University of Missouri College of Engineering are paving the way to make selecting the proper force field easier.
Dong Xu, James C. Dowell professor and chair of the Computer Science Department, and Yuwen Zhang, James C. Dowell professor and chair of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department were among 347 Fellows in this year’s class.
The 4th Annual International Field-Reversible Thermal Connector [RevCon] Challenge, sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency [DARPA], was held Oct. 23 at the Reynolds Journalism Institute and Lafferre Hall on the campus of the University of Missouri.
Yijin Mao has followed a path that has already taken him from a student to a researcher, and later, he hopes, to becoming an industrialist and teacher.
James C. Dowell Professor Yuwen Zhang has been appointed chairman of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of Missouri College of Engineering.
Matt Maschmann, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, recently was awarded a $5,000 Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award from the Oak Ridge National Lab to look into potential mechanical and electrical responses of carbon nanotubes grown directly on structural microfibers.
Yuwen Zhang, a mechanical and aerospace professor with the College of Engineering, accepted the Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Research and Creative Activity for his research advancements in areas of thermal energy storage, thermal manufacturing, electronics cooling, laser materials processing and bioheat transfer. Two Chancellor’s awards are given annually. Zhang’s thermal energy research is especially relevant […]
Yuwen Zhang, professor in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department, stands at the forefront of his field in closing educational gaps. In June he published a premier textbook in an effort to cover all pertinent topics of emerging technologies in a single volume, something Zhang said does not exist. Zhang co-authored “Advanced Heat and Mass […]
From “Star Wars” to “Star Trek,” the laser has captured the popular imagination like few other high-tech devices. Short for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation,” the laser has a storied history dating back to 1917 and Albert Einstein, who first suggested the concept of stimulated emission. Simply stated, radiation can stimulate electrons in […]
“We see the addition of a femtosecond laser lab as a way to enable University of Missouri research teams to aggressively pursue success at a national level,” said Robert D. “Bob” Tzou, the James C. Dowell professor and chairman in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. Long on College of Engineering’s wish list, a generous […]
