Department Research Seminar?October 25, 2018Gwynn Elfring Headshot  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2018/10/23 7:48) 
Elastic Symmetry Breaking, Locomotion and Synchronization at low Reynolds Number Dr. Gwynn J. Elfring Assistant Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering University of British Columbia When: October 25, 2018 | 1 PM Where: CEME 2202 | 6250 Applied Science Lane Snacks and beverages to be provided Abstract: At low Reynolds number, locomotion is only possible through non-reciprocal body deformations and so propulsion techniques such as flapping a rigid appendage do not lead to net motion. When flexibility is introduced, fluid structure interaction and deformation acts as a natural symmetry-breaking mechanism that can yield net motion, even with reciprocal actuation. In this talk we discuss a few problems in locomotion and synchronization at low Reynolds numbers where flexibility and deformation play a key role in the dynamics of the system. Biography: Gwynn Elfring is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Institute of Ap ...
Media Mention: Global National Features UBC Ultrasound Breakthrough [video]  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2018/10/18 6:29)

Breakthrough Revolutionizes Ultrasound using Mechanical Engineering, Microfabrication and Novel Prin  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2018/10/18 1:44) 
Photo by Clare Kiernan At first glance, Carlos D. Gerardo, Edmond Cretu and Robert Rohling?s new polymer capacitive micro-machined ultrasound transducer (polyCMUT) looks like a computer chip, but it?s actually a series of microscopic drums built with a novel printing process. This innovation uses mechatronics and micromachining to convert sound into electrical signals at a fraction of the price of the industry-standard piezoelectric crystal technology. The same technology used in a record player, piezoelectric ultrasound transducers depend on crystals that create a charge when they are squeezed, or change shape when a charge is passed through them. This is how they can convert the mechanical energy of sound waves into electrical signals. The drawback is that the crystal transducers are fragile, expensive and labour-intensive to produce ? crystals are cut and arranged by hand, ?like jewelry,? explains Dr. Robert Rohling , a Professor of both Mechanical Engineering and Electr ...
TARTUFFE: Molière?s classic comedy, translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur  from UC Berkeley Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies  (2018/10/15 10:27) 
Berkeley, CA – September 2018 – UC Berkeley?s Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies (TDPS) continues its 2018-19 season with   Tartuffe , a daring and witty comedy that tells the story of a crafty trickster who uses religion as a guise to flatter the vulnerability of a wealthy patriarch. Initially censored following its 1664 premiere, the play is one of Molière?s most famous works and will be presented at the Zellerbach Playhouse stage on the UC Berkeley campus. Translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur, and directed by Domenique Lozano,  Tartuffe  runs November 9-18. Tickets are $13 to $20 and can be purchased online through the TDPS box office or at the door. A con man disguised as a pious spiritual leader wheedles his way into the home of a gullible, affluent man in the midst of a mid-life crisis?and promptly sets the household topsy turvy. If not for the quick witted Dorine, grounded Elmire, and infinitel ...
Call For Applications: Fulbright Awards Competitions?Deadline: November 15, 2018  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2018/10/6 7:33) 
Traditional Fulbright Canada Student Awards Traditional Fulbright Canada Student awards are intended for Canadian citizens who are graduate students, prospective graduate students, or promising young professionals who wish to study and/or conduct research in the United States. Awards may be held at any university, research centre, think tank, or government agency in the United States. Canadian students can take up the award in one of three ways: Formal enrolment awards are intended for students who plan to enroll in a graduate program at an American university. The student must seek admission at the same time as they apply for a Fulbright award. The Traditional Fulbright Canada award would support the first nine months of the student?s graduate degree. Research awards are intended for students enrolled in a graduate program at a Canadian university, and who wish to conduct research in the United States that will support their Canadian degree. The Traditional Fulbright Canada ...
TDPS presents 70 Scenes of Halloween, a sly, surreal comedy by Jeffrey M Jones, October 11-14, 2018  from UC Berkeley Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies  (2018/10/5 20:23) 
Berkeley, CA – September 2018 – UC Berkeley?s Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies (TDPS) opens its 2018-19 season with 70 Scenes of Halloween , a spooky, scrambled, and sly comedy that transforms the unraveling of a marriage into a frighteningly funny and fantastical romp. Written by experimental playwright Jeffrey M Jones, this fast-moving scuffle will be presented in an intimate configuration on the Zellerbach Playhouse stage on the UC Berkeley campus. Directed by Christopher Herold, 70 Scenes of Halloween runs October 11-14. Tickets are $13 to $20 and can be purchased online through the TDPS box office ( http://tdps.berkeley.edu/events/70-scenes-of-halloween/ ) or at the door. The play reveals a young married couple, Jeff and Joan, who seem set to spend Halloween on their couch in a state of mild antagonism and mutual boredom. But as time fragments and reassembles, dark forces emerge and they must contend with ghosts ...
