Sowing the Seeds of Diversity in Engineering

The lack of women and underrepresented minorities (URM) in engineering is a problem that no single solution can address. Not only are there the pipeline issues, but the challenges these groups face in navigating their careers need to be addressed. This presentation will share some of the activities/practices that have been adopted at the University of California, Davis to sow the seeds of diversity.  The engineering college has launched Avenue-E, a community college transfer program designed to eliminate barriers that hold back women and underrepresented minorities in engineering and computer science... more

Flow Behavior of Cohesive and Aspherical Particles in Hoppers and Shear Cells
The discrete element method (DEM) is a powerful simulation tool which provides the details of the flow of individual particles and facilitates quick parametric studies, eliminating the need for expensive experimental testing. This presentation will outline advances in DEM to simulate the motion of cohesive and/or aspherical particles. Aspherical grains are described either as perfect cylinders or disks of varying aspect ratio or described using a linked and overlapping sphere approach... more

Friday, May 1 at 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
