Thirteen faculty members have been awarded Vincent B. Coffin Grants and Summer Stipends for 2014-15. The grants and stipends are awarded to full-time faculty for a variety of scholarly and creative projects and for activities that enhance teaching or contribute to professional development.
Vincent B. Coffin Grant Recipients
– Ivana Milanovic, professor of
mechanical engineering in the College of Engineering, Technology, and
Architecture (CETA), will conduct a project that simulates a “hole tone”
system in which a circular jet exiting an upstream orifice plate
impinges on a downstream plate producing an audible tone. COMSOL and/or
ANSYS FLUENT will be used to model, analyze, and visualize the
simulation results. The objective will be to investigate vortex shedding
at the jet exit and its impact on the system.
Summer Stipend Recipients
– Saeid Moslehpour, professor of
electrical and computer engineering in CETA, will develop
computer-generated tutorial instruction with audiovisual teaching tools
and digital video technology.
