  • Wild blue yonder: Engineers tackle challenges of hypersonic flight | Engineering
    engine he explained Essentially the engine doesn t get enough oxygen and it dies It s like trying to light a match in a hurricane Complex flows and epistemic uncertainty Modeling the unstart phenomenon requires a clear understanding of the physics and then reproducing mathematically the immensely complex interactions that occur at hypersonic speeds It is impossible to model the physical world exactly noted Juan Alonso a professor of aeronautics and astronautics When you base decisions on computations that are in some way imperfect you make errors he said Not only that but these hypersonic vehicles are themselves subject to uncertainties in how they behave in the air As a result PSAAP principal goal is to try and quantify those uncertainties the known unknowns so that scramjet engineers can build the appropriate tolerances into their designs to allow the engines to function in these extraordinary environments Measuring what the engineers call epistemic uncertainty is common in real world experimental work where researchers typically note uncertainties in their measurements in the form of bars that have upper and lower limits But hard numbers generated by computer models do not have uncertainty bars and therefore can take on an unwarranted potentially dangerous air of certainty We have asked experimentalists for a long time to give us uncertainty bars on their measurements observed Moin But I think the time is right to ask the computationalists to do the same Quantification of uncertainties in numerical predictions is at the core of PSAAP Professor Gianluca Iaccarino assistant professor of mechanical engineering is leading this effort Innovations at the exascale One reason computational uncertainty quantification is a relatively new science is that until recently the necessary computer resources simply didn t exist Some of our latest calculations run on 163 000 processors simultaneously Moin said I think they re some of the largest calculations ever undertaken Thanks to its close relationship with the Department of Energy however the Stanford PSAAP team enjoys access to the massive computer facilities at the Lawrence Livermore Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories to run their largest and most complex simulations It takes specialized knowledge to get computers of this scale to perform effectively however And that s not something scientists and engineers should be worrying about suggested Alonso which is why the collaboration between departments is critical Mechanical engineers and those of us in aeronautics and astronautics understand the flow and combustion physics of scramjet engines and the predictive tools We need the computer scientists to help us figure out how to run our tests on these large computers That need will only increase over the next decade as supercomputers move towards the exascale machines with a million or more processors able to execute a quintillion calculations in a single second Thinking ahead to that day the PSAAP team under the direction of computer science Professor Pat Hanrahan has created LISZT an entirely new computer language designed specifically to run complex simulations on massive processor sets The great virtue of

  • What does the great engineering school of the future look like?
    Mechanical Engineering says the committee recognized that the school needs to increase the number and strength of collaborations with scholars in other units of the university including in the sciences and humanities medicine and business law and the liberal arts Then we took that idea one step further Majumdar says We need a way to reach outside Stanford perhaps outside of academia to bring the brightest minds together in teams to focus on the toughest challenges To accomplish this Stanford Engineering will create the Accelerator for Collaborative Engineering The Accelerator will provide new resources for interdisciplinary research It will help bring together through a competitive fellowships program teams of faculty graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds from Stanford and beyond to work together to find solutions to some of the world s most urgent challenges We call it Interdisciplinary 2 0 Drell says Committee co chair Jennifer Widom the Fletcher Jones Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering sees the Accelerator as a bold way to address the SoE Future 10 questions and help fulfill the school s overarching mission If you want to sum up our committee s work in two words they would be enabling impact she says noting that finding new sources of energy and water and dealing with rapid urbanization in developing countries are areas where policy is very important and engineers are not necessarily well versed As a result she says it is critical to bring in non engineers who have the kind of expertise that will be required to find solutions to these complex multifaceted challenges Another strong tenet of SoE Future is how to best educate the next generation of students Committee member Philip Levis an associate professor of computer science and of electrical engineering says his most memorable moment of the SoE Future process was sharing teaching experiences during a group retreat As we went around the room each of us talking about how education has changed we realized that it wasn t just in our disciplines Levis says Things are shifting across the entire school And there s a common theme with these changes Students want to make things Stanford Engineering will address that challenge by finding ways to create maker spaces throughout the school similar to those already in place at its Product Realization Lab It is also rethinking the engineering core curriculum in collaboration with colleagues in the School of Humanities and Sciences SoE Future also encouraged the School of Engineering to renew its commitment toward increasing both faculty and student diversity with a focus on diversifying the pipeline of students into the field In the engineering core and in partnership with the physics math and chemistry departments and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering the school is investing in programs to ensure that any student who comes to Stanford who wants to major in a STEM field but might not have had access to the prerequisite classes in high school can
