MEMS Department Seminar Series - Invited Lecturer -Alexander Mychkovsky

This is a past event.

“ Advanced Flow Visualization Techniques for Hydrodynamic Experiments”

Abstract:

Velocity field measurements in hydrodynamic tests are needed to inform computational model development and engineering design decisions.  Laser velocimetry techniques are non-intrusive and enable high-fidelity measurements in optically transparent flows.  This lecture will provide an overview of the various laser velocimetry techniques and discuss the state-of-the-art in particle image velocimetry (PIV), including three-component volumetric velocity field measurements and corresponding pressure field reconstructions.    

Biography:

Dr. Alex Mychkovsky is an Advisor Engineer in Thermal-Hydraulics Testing at the Naval Nuclear Laboratory.  Alex’s research focuses on the development of advanced flow visualization techniques for hydrodynamic tests.  These methods include laser velocimetry for single-phase flows and X-ray radiography for multiphase flows.  Alex received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2010, where he studied as a Department of Energy Rickover Fellow.  Alex’s work has been published in Applied Optics, Powder Technology, AIChE, Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science, and Measurement Science and Technology journals and presented at APS, AIAA, ASME, ICMF, TSFP, and ISPIV conferences.

Thursday, February 10 at 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
