Lyutsia Dautova, a graduate student in mechanical engineering, CETA; Ivana Milanovic, associate professor of mechanical engineering, CETA; and Khaled J. Hammad, assistant professor of engineering at Central Connecticut State University, presented a research paper at the American Society of Engineering Education–North East Section (ASEE-NE), which took place in Lowell, Mass., in April.
The paper, "CFD Study of the Effect of Jet Placement on Flow Patterns Inside a Jet Stirred Tank," reported the effects of jet placement on the resulting flow patterns inside a tank. Detailed descriptions, both quantitative and qualitative, are documented in Dautova’s thesis.
Her work was also selected for presentation at the University of Hartford's annual Graduate Research/Creativity Symposium, which took place on May 2.
