  • Congrats to Zain Main who presented at the TCNJ Summer 2020 Presentation Symposium. Check out his poster (and others) hereZain has been designing a bio-inspired pump, based off of insect hearts. He ran over 2500 fluid-structure interactions simulations this past summer alone using TCNJ's HPC ELSA. Congrats and great work, Zain!
     

  • I'd like to welcome Miruna Baciu, Tierney Baldwin, and Rose Pereira to the lab!!

  • Congrats to Mike Mongelli whose 1st first author manuscript was just accepted in Fluids! In this work, we studied the underlying fluid dynamics of pendulums, compared the results with the canonical reduced-order model of a damped pendulum, and discussed unsuspecting, interesting results! Here's the info:
