Modeling and Simulation of Pulverizing Aircraft Crashes
Do you know how an airplane crash causes the breakup of the aircraft? Professor Goong Chen of Texas A&M
The method was developed by hybridizing two primary methods: the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), and the methodology was validated against an experimental crash test of an F4 Phantom II fighter jet into a wall. The data from the recovered Flight Data Recorder are used and the effects of terrain on pulverization are visualized through the animation videos as the basis for making the assessments. The major assessment is that Flight 9525 crashed "
All majors and faculty of AUS are welcome.

About the Speaker
Professor Goong Chen has research interests incontrol theory, boundary element methods and numerical solutions of PDEs,engineering mechanics, quantum computation, chemical physics and quantummechanics. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Elsevier/Academic Press Mathematics inScience and Engineering book series, and the Journal of Mathematical Analysisand Applications, and has served on several other editorial boards, includingthe SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization, the International Journal onQuantum Information, and the Electronic Journal of Differential Equations. He is also a co-holder of a US Patent on certain quantum circuitdesign for quantum computing. He has published six books and more than 140papers, and co-edited four books. One of Professor's Chen papers, on the Malaysian Airlines plane thatdisappeared without trace, became The American Maths Society's most downloadedpaper of the year.
