Dr. Indira Samarasekera: Of Serendipity Steel and (Not Only Mechanical) Engineering?September 20, 20  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2018/9/20 7:41) 
Senior Scholars’ Series: The Passions that Drive Academic Life OF SERENDIPITY, STEEL AND (NOT ONLY MECHANICAL) ENGINEERING Indira Samarasekera , Metals and Materials Engineering; 12th President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Alberta (2005-2015) Coach House, Green College, UBC Thursday, September 20, 5-6:30 pm, with reception to follow Indira Samarasekera?s journey from the Island of Serendip, now known as Sri Lanka, to an exciting career of discovery and application in steel processing, was marked by moments of genuine serendipity. One of a dozen female engineers from the University of Ceylon in 1974, she spent two years doing materials research at the University of California. Following a Masters degree, she came to UBC and stumbled into an opportunity to do mathematical modelling of steel processing at a time when large-scale computing was just becoming a reality. Her research had a significant impact on the steel industry worldwide and was accompanied b ...

Could a DIY ultrasound be in your future? UBC breakthrough opens door to $100 ultrasound machineOLYM  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2018/9/14 7:45) 
Photo Credit: Clare Kiernan Engineers at the University of British Columbia have developed a new ultrasound transducer, or probe, that could dramatically lower the cost of ultrasound scanners to as little as $100. Their patent-pending innovation?no bigger than a Band-Aid?is portable, wearable and can be powered by a smartphone. Conventional ultrasound scanners use piezoelectric crystals to create images of the inside of the body and send them to a computer to create sonograms. Researchers replaced the piezoelectric crystals with tiny vibrating drums made of polymer resin, called polyCMUTs (polymer capacitive micro-machined ultrasound transducers), which are cheaper to manufacture. ?Transducer drums have typically been made out of rigid silicon materials that require costly, environment-controlled manufacturing processes, and this has hampered their use in ultrasound,? said study lead author Carlos Gerardo, a PhD candidate in electrical and computer engineering at UBC. ?By ...
