participate in meaningful research
work independently
work as part of a team
learn something new
experience:
 What it is like to do academic research in CFD for Engineering
problems
 What it is like to do academic research at University of Hawai‘i
◦ We will advance our department research
◦ We will experience what it is like to have you on our team


We hope to have published research
We strive for maximum discovery with minimum
frustration!

To participate in research at this level, you
need expertise/knowledge on three levels
1. Theory of fluids
2. Numerical concepts, use of numerical code
3. High performance computing issues for large
problems


We will provide sessions to review/augment
your basic knowledge in all these areas over
the next two weeks
You will also begin your projects with your
mentors, and apply what you learn.

June 12-13, 2012 – Joint Hawai‘i-Korea
Workshop on Engineering of Coastal
Structures for Tsunami and Coastal Storm
Surge Hazards
◦ Mandatory for Matt, Stephanie, Jordan, and Adam
◦ Others will decide with mentor if they will attend
 If they attend, let Dr. Riggs know, so he can register
them.
◦ Time: 1:30 pm – 6:30 pm. Students are expected
to work on their research projects in the am.

Sunday, June 3, 2012

Every Friday except June 15
◦ Visit to Pacific Tsunami Warning Center
◦ Mandatory for all students
◦ Picnic at Fort DeRussy Beach Park
◦ Not Mandatory, but lots of fun
◦ Brown bag lunch in Holmes 287
◦ Bring lunch and a drink
◦ If I am in town, you get cookies or dessert, if not, you get me on
conference call or skype. (I’ll still be eating cookies.)
◦ Be prepared to give a 5 minute summary of how it’s going with
your work and discuss everyone else’s work
◦ Very informal – intended to help and avoid time-wasting blocks.
Also to leverage each other’s knowledge.
◦ Mandatory for all students.
