Dr. Charbel Farhat spoke at our CE-CISMMS Graduate Seminar

Our invited speaker, Dr. Charbel Farhat, the Vivian Church Hoff Professor of Aircraft Structures, and Chairman of the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University, presented his talk on December 8th, 2016. The Graduate Seminar was jointly sponsored by the department of Civil Engineering and CISMMS. Dr. Farhat is a recipient of many professional and academic distinctions including the Lifetime Achievement Award from ASME, the Structures, Structural Dynamics and Materials Award from AIAA, the John von Neumann Medal from USACM, the Gauss-Newton Medal from IACM, the Gordon Bell Prize and Sidney Fernbach Award from IEEE, and the Modeling and Simulation Award from DoD.

His talk entitled “Parametric Nonlinear Model Reduction and Impact on Uncertainty Quantification and Multiscale Modeling“, discussed the highlights and advances of parametric, projection-based model order reduction (PMOR) as well as reporting the significant impact for an important class of problems in uncertainty quantification and multiscale modeling.
