Williams O. Williams, PhD, a professor in the department of mathematical sciences at Carnegie Mellon University, will discuss "Mechanics of Tensegrity Structures" at the Fall 2009 Granular and Multiphase Flows Colloquium Series on Dec. 7, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Mechanical Engineering Center Rm. 224. >>
Even if you are not a cook, you might have wondered why a pinch of flour (or any small particles) thrown into a bowl of water will disperse in a dramatic fashion, radiating outward as if it was exploding. Pushpendra Singh, PhD, a mechanical engineering professor at NJIT who has studied and written about the phenomenon, has not only thought about it, but can explain why. >>
Vincent J. Naimoli '62, chairman and chief executive officer of Anchor Industries International and chairman emeritus/founder of the Tampa Bay Rays, discussed "My Career Path from NJIT" with mechanical engineering students as part of the Mary Sullivan Memorial Lecture Series. Shown at left are: Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Associate Chair Albert Narh, Naimoli, NJIT President Robert A. Altenkirch, and MIE Chair Raj Sodhi. >>
