Bio-fluid and Gel Group Meeting!

Fall semester 2009 meetings: WEDNESDAYS at 11:00 in LCB 322.


Pupose: Every week this group meets in an informal setting to discuss problems from (bio)fluid and gel dynamics related to our research or just for fun. The topics we discuss include, but are not limited to, modeling biological fluids, computational fluid dynamics, modeling gels, scientific computation, and physiological modeling. The purpose of this meeting is to learn from our colleagues by both leading and participating in the discussions.
