6/27/2017: Barbara Linke presented a poster on Design and Manufacturing of Nozzles and Airfoil Shapes for Compressible Flow Visualizations in a New Engineering Course at the 124th American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference in Columbus, OH.
6/14/2017: The 9 students teams have presented their projects and the course has successfully ended.
4/4/2017: The course EME198 “Design and Manufacturing of Nozzle and Airfoil Models for Flow Visualization” has started with 36 students enrolled.
1/23/2017: A new Capstone Project has started on developing a second inclined water table with fixed models
10/01/2016: The water table has been moved to an instructional space in 1071A Bainer.
08/26/2016: NSF-Funding for I-Corps L Compressible Flow Water Table gave us the chance to explore the hypothesis that the water table is a useful invention to reinforce high school and community college education. The hypothesis was tested by conducting 100 interviews with relevant and potential customers.
06/03/2016: Picture of the moving model (oblique shock in front of the airfoil, expansion fan at the trailing edge)
06/02/2016: The Student Design Team published the water height measurement project at the UC Davis College of Engineering Design Showcase
05/13/2016: We have submitted an application for I-corps L. The team applies to receive an additional $50,000 in order to commercialize / distribute the water table to interested institutions. The I-corps team will consist of PIs (Professor Hafez and Linke), Mentor (Maen Mahfoud), and Entreprenurial Lead (Fahad Jan).
