Development and Application of Hybrid Simulation for Seismic Testing of Large-scale Structural Systems
Hybrid simulation combining physical and numerical simulations provides a cost-effective means to experimentally examine the performance of large-scale structural systems under extreme loading events. It can be particularly beneficial to investigate the behavior of large scale structures subjected to seismic loads through collapse given that shake table tests pose significant risk to support a collapsing ...

Understanding how nucleic acids and proteins interact to regulate key cellular processes requires the ability to observe these interactions directly. The dynamic nature of many nucleic acid-protein interactions makes it challenging to study them with traditional bulk methods. Biochemical, molecular or cellular biology approaches yield ensemble- or population-averaged results, which may conceal key short-lived or ...

14:00 BSP 727
SEMINAR IN BIOLOGICAL AND STATISTICAL PHYSICS Abstract: Protein folding research has been dominated by the assumption that thermodynamics determines protein structure and function. And that when the folding process is compromised, the proteostasis machinery of cells - chaperones, deaggregases, the proteasome - work to restore proteins to their soluble, functional form or degrade them to ...

14:00-15:00 SV 1717
Control of stem cell division modes is important to ensure generation of properly sized tissues during development as well as adult tissue homeostasis and repair. Stem cells undergo repeated cell divisions in which they produce daughter cells that either mature or remain stem cells. Surprisingly, the number and type of produced daughter cells vary between ...

Chemical Engineering Seminar - Charge and excited state dynamics in 3D and 2D hybrid perovskites.Bridging Molecular and Heterogeneous Electrocatalysis Through Graphite Conjugation.
The efficient interconversion of electrical and chemical energy requires catalysts capable of accelerating complex multi-electron reactions at electrified interfaces. These reactions can be carried out at the metallic surface sites of heterogeneous electrocatalysts or via redox mediation at molecular electrocatalysts. Molecular catalysts yield readily to synthetic alteration of their redox properties and secondary coordination sphere, ...
