Engineering Serendipity Seminar: "Design for Discovery: Structural Shape & Topology Optimization in the Age of 3D Printing"

Dates: 
Friday, February 16, 2018 - 16:00 to 17:00
Location: 
Room 220 (50 Seats)

Please join College of Engineering and Applied Sciences colleagues for our February Engineering Serendipity Seminar, Design for Discovery: Structural Shape & Topology Optimization in the Age of 3D Printing February 16, at 4 PM, in Computer Science 220. This seminar will feature a presentation by Shikui Chen, Mechanical Engineering, and David Gu, Computer Science. The seminar will be an opportunity to learn more about their joint work on shape and topology optimization and its applications in the design of multifunctional materials and structures. Topology optimization is an optimization-driven methodology capable of generating an optimal design without depending on the designers’ intuition, experience, and inspiration. The methodology will play a crucial and rapidly expanding role in design innovation in the 3D printing age, especially in automotive, aerospace and machine industries. Refreshments will be provided. The College sponsors Engineering Serendipity Seminars on the third Friday of each month, at 4 PM, to provide an opportunity to learn about and share research activity and interests with colleagues, with the goal of inspiring and supporting collaborative research and grantseeking.
