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 ...

James Olson inducted into Canadian Academy of EngineeringDSC_2349  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/6/27 8:18) 
Nominated and elected by peers, MECH professor and interim dean James Olson, PEng, was inducted as a fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) in recognition of his “distinguished achievement and career-long service to the engineering profession.” Olson joined 49 other new fellows and two new international fellows who were welcomed by the CAE on June 26, 2017 at a ceremony in Ottawa, in conjunction with the CAE’s 2017 Annual General Meeting and Symposium. The CAE is an independent, self-governing and non-profit organization established in 1987 to serve Canada in matters of engineering concern. Olson’s CAE citation reads as follows: Dr. James Olson is a visionary leader, pioneering researcher, and inspiring educator who has made transformative contributions to the forest products sector of engineering. As a direct result of Dr. Olson?s innovative research and patented inventions, the pulp and paper industry can produce premium pulp using half the ...

APSC Rising Stars 2017: Rebecca McCreedy, BASc?17, MECH AlumnaOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/6/16 7:44) 
  Applied Science Class of 2017 “Engineering is a team sport. It?s daunting and tough on your own, but when you have a group of people to tackle it with it gets a bit easier.” My name is Rebecca McCreedy, I?m a graduating student from the Department of Mechanical Engineering. I was a fairly involved student in high school, so when I came to university, I looked for ways to get involved in the UBC Engineering community. In my first year, I joined Alpha Omega Epsilon (AOE), UBC?s Engineering Sorority. Throughout my degree, I went on to hold multiple positions within the sorority, including Social Coordinator, Publicity Rep, Secretary, Treasurer, Vice President and eventually President in my final year. In my second year, I became involved with the EUS, becoming a Publicity Rep, which I continued until my fourth year, and started volunteering with eng?cite at outreach events for high school girls. Over the next three years, my involvement with both the EU ...
