Research Experience for Undergraduates


You will participate in meaningful research


You will work independently


You will work as part of a team


You will learn something new


You will experience:


What it is like to do academic research in CFD for Engineering
problems


What it is like to do academic research at University of Hawai‘i


We will advance our department research


We will experience what it is like to have you on our team


We hope to have published research


We strive for maximum discovery with minimum
frustration!


To participate in research at this level, you
need expertise/knowledge on three levels

1.
Theory of fluids

2.
Numerical concepts, use of numerical code

3.
High performance computing issues for large
problems


We will provide sessions to review/augment
your basic knowledge in all these areas over
the next two weeks


You will also begin your projects with your
mentors, and apply what you learn.

Others will decide with mentor if they will attend


If they attend, let Dr. Riggs know, so he can register
them.


Time: 1:30 pm


6:30 pm. Students are expected

Picnic at Fort
DeRussy

Beach Park


Not Mandatory, but lots of fun

Bring lunch and a drink


If I am in town, you get cookies or dessert, if not, you get me on
conference call or
skype
. (I’ll still be eating cookies.)


Be prepared to give a 5 minute summary of how it’s going with
your work and discuss everyone else’s work


Very informal


intended to help and avoid time
-
wasting blocks.
Also to leverage each other’s knowledge.


Mandatory for all students.
