The department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Limerick invites you to a seminar by Dr Ian Griffiths (University of Oxford):
Title: iPhones and Dysons: using fluid dynamics to tailor technology
Abstract: As technology continues to advance, newstrategies involving a range of scientific disciplines are required.Mathematicians can provide frameworks to predict operating regimes andmanufacture techniques. In this talk we present two case studies: thefabrication of precision glass, for smartphones and new flexible devices; andthe development of superior filters for vacuum cleaners. In each case we useasymptotic analysis to derive a model that determines the fabrication protocolrequired to produce a desired final product.
This seminar will take place on Friday 2nd February, at 4 p.m, in Room A2-002.
