Opening Ceremony Report 1

Title: International Aerospace Education Communication and Cooperation in the 21st Century: Expectations to a New Paradigm
Time: 2017.9.7.10:00.
Place: New Main Building conference center.
Reporter: United States Air Force, Bruce Jolly

Brief introduction to the reporter:
Bruce Jolly is the Principal Technical Advisor for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to the United States Air Force (USAF) Developmental Test Wing, where he has worked since 1991. Before that time he worked in CFD research at the USAF Flight Dynamics Laboratory. He graduated from the University of Dayton, Auburn University and Liberty University. His research has included inverse CFD methods and design methods, computational interactive grid generation methods, grid adaption methods for high speed flow and CFD runtime case management methods for heavy workloads. He specializes in time-accurate CFD simulating multibody dynamics in high-speed flow.
Brief Introduction to the Report:
"Knowledge is produced collectively in the 21st century." Said by Hilary Kahn and Melanie Agnew in their Journal Article on “Global Learning through Difference.” The truth of this statement cannot be denied yet the current world divides educational opportunities along social and national lines. We need to rethink the language and social barriers and understand the opportunities available in the global communication age. Too often we settle from the building blocks of our past when true breakthroughs come from an unconstrained imagination for change. Maqbool in his journal article “Science for the benefits of all” rightly states that “Science should not be limited to a place, race, culture or region; in fact it should be regarded as the basic human right around the globe.” Realizing the reality of national constraints, this talk will address the need for better communication and cooperation specifically within the aerospace education of young scientists. It will present a framework to accommodate this pursuit as the new paradigm for international education in the 21st century.

Brief introduction to the report:
Vibration has long played a crucial role in engineering due to its effects on structural stability, metal fatigue, and structural damage to materials. This report gives examples on the damping techniques of rigid body and elastic beam vibrations. Most of the study examples are focused on using the dynamic vibration absorber (tuned mass damper (TMD)) to surpass the nonlinear vibrations. Several cases listed in this report take into consideration of the unsteady aerodynamics to study aeroelastic flutter of the system. Some design guidelines for the TMDs are presented for the optimal damping effects on the vibration system.

Title: Multifractality in round low-density jets
Place:Conference Room 7 of New Main Building.
Reporter:Hong Kong University of Science and Technology,Larry Li.

Brief introduction to the reporter:
Dr Larry Li is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). Prof Li’s research focuses on flow instability, combustion and thermoacoustics, with applications ranging from aircraft propulsion to spray painting.
Brief introduction to the report:
Abstract:  The route to global instability in low-density axisymmetric jets is investigated using dynamical systems theory. Globally stable jets featuring noise-like low-amplitude velocity fluctuations are shown to be of multifractal nature, behaving differently from white noise. The onset of global instability can therefore be interpreted as a loss of multifractality.  The Hurst exponent and the spectral entropy are used as early warning indicators to predict the onset of global instability in such jets. These two precursors are implemented and tested, showing that globally stable jets contain useful information in both the time domain and the frequency domain.  This information can potentially be used to develop new online detection and control strategies to forecast and control hydrodynamic instabilities in industrial systems. This study enhances the universality of nonlinear dynamical properties in hydrodynamic systems.
