Yet, their modelling is still an open scientific challenge. This talk aims to clarify the impact of phase changes in some relevant examples spanning from industrial, environmental and biological engineering.</div></div> <div><br /></div> <h3 class="chalmersElement-H3">About Gaetano Sardina:</h3> <div><div>Gaetano Sardina works at the division of Fluid Dynamics. His academic background is in Aerospace Engineering (MSc) and Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (PhD). His present research interests focus on sustainable process engineering, with emphasis on numerical simulations of multiphase flows. The main topic is the transport of particles, droplets and bubbles in Newtonian and complex flows</div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><br /></div>—-field-test-and-numerical-simulations.aspx of wheel damage on wheelset and track loading – field test and numerical simulations<p>Zoom</p><p>​​Michele Maria Maglio will hold his licentiate seminar titled &quot;Influence of wheel damage on wheelset and track loading –​ field test and numerical simulations&quot;.</p>​<div><strong>Doctoral student:</strong> ​Michele Maria Maglio</div> <div><br /></div> <div><strong>Discussion leader:</strong> Erland Johnson</div> <div><br /></div> <div><strong>Examiner:</strong> Anders Ekberg</div> fair for master thesis proposals - Chalmers 2020<p>Online - links on each MP in Canvas</p><p>​​​It&#39;s time for this year&#39;s master thesis proposals fair!</p>​On October 12, industry partners present exciting master thesis proposals for students from the Master's programmes: Automotive engineering (MPAUT), Applied mechanics (MPAME), Production engineering (MPPEN), Product development (MPPDE), Materials Engineering (MPAEM), Industrial Design Engineering (MPDES) och Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering (MPNAV)​.<div><br /></div> <div><span style="font-size:14px">This year, the traditional fair takes place online due to the prevailing pandemic.</span><br /></div> <div><span style="font-size:14px"><br /></span></div> Flexible Dual-Fuel Direct Injection Engine<p>Online in Zoom</p><p>​Michael Saccullo defends his doctoral thesis titled &quot;Alcohol Flexible Dual-Fuel Direct Injection Engine&quot;.</p>​<div>Doctoral student: Michael Saccullo</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Main supervisor and examiner: Ingemar Denbratt</div> Actuation for Energy Savings and Driving Dynamics for Electric Cars<p>Online</p><p>​Juliette Torinsson holds her licentiate seminar titled &quot;Wheel Actuation for Energy Savings and Driving Dynamics for Electric Cars&quot;.</p>​<div><div>Doctoral student: Juliette Torinsson</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Discussion leader: Lars Drugge</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Examiner: Bengt Jacobson</div></div> of numerical methods for accurate and efficient scale-resolving simulations<p>Online in Zoom</p><p>​Magnus Carlsson holds his licentiate seminar titled &quot;Development of numerical methods for accurate and efficient scale-resolving simulations&quot;.</p>​<div>Doctoral student: Magnus Carlsson</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Discussion leader: Axel Probst</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Examiner: Lars Davidson</div> in space<p>RunAn, conference hall, Chalmersplatsen 1, Kårhuset</p><p>Due to the current pandemic, the seminar will be launched May 4th, 2021.</p><div><div><span style="background-color:initial">The new space age is here! We address this year's initiative seminar, to space and production, following in the steps of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.</span><span style="background-color:initial">​</span><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"></span><span style="background-color:initial">How to manufacture for space?
