M E Seminar Series: Heat Transfer Across Solid-Liquid Interfaces: A Spectral Analysis

135 Reber Building
4:35 p.m.

Transport processes across solid-liquid interfaces are of major importance for the design and operation of micro and nanoscale devices such as lab-on-a-chip, sensors in aqueous environments, drug delivery systems, and disease diagnostics. Classical molecular dynamics simulations were used to characterize the solid-liquid affinity effect on the thermal boundary conductance at crystalline and amorphous solid-liquid interfaces.




The Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering at Penn State is one of the nation’s largest and most successful engineering departments. We serve more than 1,000 undergraduate students and more than 330 graduate students

We offer B.S. degrees in mechanical engineering and nuclear engineering as well as resident (M.S., Ph.D.) and online (M.S., M.Eng.) graduate degrees in nuclear engineering and mechanical engineering. MNE's strength is in offering hands-on experience in highly relevant research areas, such as energy, homeland security, biomedical devices, and transportation systems.
