On TDPS?S 2017-18 Playhouse + Studio Productions  from UC Berkeley Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies  (2017/9/7 2:56) 
Peter Glazer + Philip Kan Gotanda, TDPS Production Committee Co-Chairs TDPS?s 2017-2018 season celebrates provocative theatricality, rich language, and unconventional storytelling. The Playhouse and Studio productions this year are works inspired by dreams, myths, and the elusive natures of love and humanity. Works that approach the theatrical idiom with energy and innovation. Works that open themselves to stylistic innovation, humor, and flights of fancy. Works that allow for a breadth of diversity and inclusion in casting. Works that will provide an expansive palette for our actors, designers, and technicians. These are works with big visions and big ideas.    In October, you will see  Metamorphoses , by renowned playwright-director auteur Mary Zimmerman. This adaptation of Ovid?s classic myths, directed by TDPS?s own Christopher Herold (who has been interested in directing this piece for years), is an ensemble piece that features a large cast. The show? ...

Tickets are $13 to $20 and can be purchased online through the TDPS box office ( tdps.berkeley.edu/events/metamorphoses/ ) or at the door. In Mary Zimmerman?s Tony Award nominated play, Metamorphoses , the classical tales of Ovid come to magical life in all their playful, passionate, savage, elemental glory . In a visually fantastic world ?set in and around a pool of water? the human and the divine collide, and such familiar figures as Poseidon, King Midas and Eurydice share universal stories of love, hope, death, betrayal and transformation. Beneath clouds and ...
UBC Formula SAE Team Places 23rd out of 120 at Formula SAE MichiganFormula 2017 submitted by teamFor  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/7/27 1:18) 
Submitted by the UBC Formula SAE team. In May, the Formula UBC Racing team participated in the Formula SAE Michigan competition. The team secured 23rd place overall out of 120 teams. The design goals for the 2017 competing race car included a drastic weight reduction which lead to a full redesign of the car?s primary sub-systems. Changes included a smaller chassis and a switch from 13? to 10? wheels. An incredible 70 lbs was removed from the previous year?s design resulting in a final weight of 447 lbs (without the driver). An example of the weight-cutting technologies implemented to aid in this aggressive weight target was the development of carbon fiber suspension components, which required extensive physical testing to validate strength. Formula SAE competitions are comprised of both static and dynamic events. The static events include the engineering design presentation, the business presentation, and the cost event, in which the team placed 18th, 65th, and 91st, res ...

Patrick comes from Huzhou, China. He completed his undergraduate study at Ningbo University, China, majoring in Mechanical Engineering. In his senior year, Patri ...
Gary Yan earns third place in the Aviation 2017 Student Paper Competition in Computation Fluid Dynam  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/7/15 8:28) 
PhD candidate Gary Yan and his supervisor Carl Ollivier-Gooch recently received third place for their submission to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)’s Aviation 2017 Student Paper Competition in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). AIAA is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the study and profession of aerospace. Yan presented his paper at Aviation 2017, a forum that aims to bring the aviation industry together to address both present and future industry challenges and to act as a venue for researchers to present on aircraft design, air traffic management and operations, and aviation technologies among other subjects. Their paper, “Applications of the Unsteady Error Transport Equation on Unstructured Meshes” is a numerical study of using the error transport equation to obtain higher order accurate discretization error estimates and corrected solutions is performed for unsteady compressible flow. You can read Yan and ...
Smart Stimuli Responsive Surfaces: A Multifunctional MaterialMerida smart surfacesmerida smart surfa  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/7/8 6:57) 
  New research by UBC?s Clean Energy Research Centre has made the cover of Wiley?s most recent issue of Advanced Materials Interfaces . The article, which was co-written by Beniamin Zahiri, Pradeep Kumar Sow, Chun Haow Kung and Walter Mérida, discusses fast and reversible control over surface wetting properties–from superhydrophobic (water-repellant) to superhydrophilic (water-attractive) using a small voltage that could be supplied by conventional batteries. The elegance of the approach lies in the simplicity, preciseness and reversibility of the wetting manipulation. The smart material offers the flexibility and versatility to be applied in a number of applications, such as self-cleaning surfaces, smart filtration and microfluidic devices.   In nature, there are three different types of surface interactions with water: self-cleaning (e.g. lotus leaf), high adhesiveness (e.g. gecko foot) and water absorbing (e.g. peat moss). Scientists have found that such v ...
Newly formed UBC Rocket defeat MIT and McGillUBC Rocket  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/7/6 5:10) 
  Competing in their first international competition, UBC Rocket hardly expected to take home a first place prize. One of 15 competing Canadian schools, UBC Rocket recently took part in the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition which ran from June 20 to 24 in New Mexico, USA. The flagship event of the Spaceport America Cup, the competition challenges teams to design and build rockets. Teams are judged based on rocket innovation and functionality, as well as flight performance and other criteria depending on the event category. UBC Rocket received first place for their performance in the ?10K ? All Propulsion Types? category, wherein teams compete to launch their rockets to exactly 10,000 feet. Using a solid propulsion system, UBC Rocket was able to control the launch of their rocket to 10,053 feet, earning them first place over 50 other teams. Construction of the team?s rocket, named Cypress after our local Cypress Mountain, began just over a year ago. Despite ...
