UKH will start weekly lunch seminars by our Academic staff, or external guests, the main goals of the events is to gather us socially and also as an effective tool in order to explore resources and exploit multidisciplinary competence in different departments at UKH.
The idea consists of weekly Seminars by Academic Staff or inviting guests to UKH at lunch time on Thursdays between 12:30 -13:30. The presenters and audience will be mainly from UKH and our partners, where UKH invites audiences to lunch and refreshments. The presentations will take 15-20 minutes, with 15-20 minutes discussion time.
our honorable Assistant Professor Joseph Carol from Natural Resources Engineering and Management (NREM), will present over the work he did during his PhD in a broad, over-arching way so that people from a variety of backgrounds can understand the general concept and purpose of the work. The work addresses using Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations to efficiently, yet accurately, model the air flow produced by propellers on small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) which are often used for surveillance. Overall, this work bridges a gap between high-fidelity, unsteady CFD simulations of propellers which take huge computational resources and time-averaged momentum source models which are faster computationally, but less accurate. The surrogate modeling process used to improve the accuracy of computationally efficient CFD simulations of UAVs with propellers will be addressed in an over-arching manner.
