Seminar: “Bioenergy and Availability” by Dr. Duu-Jong Lee (NTUST, Taiwan)

Abstract: The world is faced with energy challenges with depleting fossil fuel reserves. Although with successful exploitation of shale gas and shale oil, the long-term economic benefits on shale fuels use considering the environmental damage are unknown. Biomass is abundant worldwide and its derived energy is regarded renewable and cost-effective. Additionally, the use of bioenergy from biomass is claimed to be carbon neutral since the biomass has supreme capability to biofixation of CO2. However, the cost of biodiesel production from biomass is high.

SHARCNET/Software Carpentry Workshop on Scientific Computing with Python

What: The two-day workshop is meant to help scientists and engineers become more productive by teaching them basic computing skills like program design, version control, testing, and task automation. In this two-day boot camp, short tutorials will alternate with hands-on practical exercises. Participants will be encouraged both to help one another, and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions.

Seminar - "Advanced Graphene Materials for Energy Storage & Conversion" by Prof. Aiping Yu

Aiping Yu, PhD,  Assistant Professor, Chemical Engineering, University of Waterloo
Abstract: Graphene is recognized as one of the nanomaterials that could revolutionize numerous industries over a wide range of sectors due to its distinctive properties, including large specific surface area, high electrical and thermal conductivity, good chemical stability, ultrahigh mobility, as well as great mechanical strength and Young’s modulus.

ABSTRACT: In this work, the issue of stability for two-phase incompressible flow in homogeneous porous media out of the Darcy regime (i.e. when inertia must be taken into account) is considered. The development is based on a macroscopic model derived by upscaling the pore-scale Navier-Stokes equations, assuming that the inertial correction is quadratic in the filtration velocity, as widely admitted with the classical Darcy-Forchheimer model.
