  • March 1998 Newsletter – IIHR – Hydroscience & Engineering – University of Iowa
    University Colleges of Engineering have begun exchanging faculty for short term visits This commutation fondly is referred to as our hostage exchange First hostage was Richard Pletcher of ISU s Department of Mechanical Engineering who spent a week interacting with UI engineering faculty Reciprocation was in the person of Wilf Nixon who went to ISU to exchange intellectual curiosities Another exchange between IIHR and St Anthony Falls Laboratory has become tradition Each year we exchange seminar speakers and this year Larry Weber from IIHR and Joe Orlins from SAFL did the honors IIHR is a partner in the National Computational Science Alliance which is funded by the National Science Foundation s Partnership for an Advanced Computational Infrastructure program to support the development of a powerful computational problem solving environment for national scale multidisciplinary collaborative work The alliance is being coordinated by the University of Illinois and IIHR is teamed with the University of Wisconsin to coordinate the use of high performance computing in environmental hydrology and help adapt current water and atmosphere modeling systems to different computing environments as well as to develop these techniques into an integrated set of tools for the environmental hydrology community IIHR has hosted tandem visits of three students first Hartmut Rosenberger then Andreas Benner now Markus Kruetten from Kaiserslautern in Germany to work with Tatsuaki Nakato on their diplome thesis research Fred Stern has a grant from ONR for collaborative research on combined computational and experimental ship hydrodynamics and uncertainty analysis with INSEAN in Italy and the Danish Maritime Institute DMI in Denmark A student Claus Simonson from DMI is studying and conducting a research project at IIHR this semester as part of that exchange And as a result of IIHR s cooperative agreement with Dharmsinh Desai Institute of Technology DDIT a group of ten UI primarily IIHR students and one from Florida traveled to India for the period December 30 1997 January 18 1998 to participate in the course International Perspectives in Water Resources Planning which was developed by IIHR primarily the effort of Subhash Jain and DDIT a workshop on Irrigation Schemes of Gujarat at DDIT and a series of seminars on water resources of India at University of Roorkee The course involved extensive orientation prior to the trip that included lectures by experts on the culture religion cuisine and history of India with particular emphasis on Gujarat State and how historical political and socio economic factors have influenced water projects and policies in that area By all measures including the most important that of student evaluation this course was a successful and valuable experience We are planning a course for May 1999 in Japan and Taiwan with the help of Iowans Shoji Fukuoka Ph D 71 and H Y Lee Ph D 84 respectively The trip after that probably will be to China and Korea We still need a continuing grant or foundation bequest for base funding in order to make these courses affordable for students so if you have any ideas for this please let us know Also if you would like to help in the planning of and hosting a future course in a country outside the United States we would be most happy to hear from you Ana Sirviente Ph D 96 Sanjiv Sinha Ph D 96 and Ehab Meselhe Ph D 95 all left this fall for university positions Ana and Sanjiv recently had a baby girl a few weeks ago and Tim Johnson Ph D 97 left for a position at Boeing They all had been temporary postdocs on the staff after receiving their degrees We thought it would be interesting for the upcoming summer letter to include a list of recent graduates and the employment they secured Be watching Additions to the staff included Ching Long Lin with joint appointment in ME and IIHR whose specialties are turbulence dynamics and modeling heat transfer and thermodynamics who came to us via Stanford University where he received a Ph D and the Boundary Layer and Turbulence Group of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder where he was a visiting scientist Eric Paterson Ph D 94 and Anton Kruger have joined the staff as assistant research scientists in ship hydrodynamics and hydrometeorology respectively Bob Wilson from Old Dominion University in Virginia joined Fred Stern s ship hydrodynamics research team in January 1997 as a postdoctoral research associate Advertising currently is underway for two positions in CFD and one in experimental hydraulics It s the end of another era Erv Miller and Stan Stutzman retired last year Erv in February 1997 after 35 plus years of service and Stan in June 1997 after working for the lab since March 1961 Stan still is to be seen around the lab helping Jim Goss on a temporary basis No newsletter would be complete without the latest in renovations The last phase of remodeling the Wind Tunnel Annex which added a total of 1 700 square feetof floor space for a weather station lab and LiDAR facility library annex area and a computer room recently was completed Some of the flumes have been removed from first floor of HL to provide more space for the fluids teaching laboratory and negotiations are underway to acquire another small building on the east side of the river adjacent to our other labs there to provide space for a modernized teaching lab Maybe news about it will be forthcoming in the next letter which because this one is so late will be out in just a few months The Engineering Building modernization and expansion program is underway and should be completed in 2003 As might be expected a host of Iowans comprising most of our staff including Twila Meder and Judy Holland of IIHR s office staff who played major roles in facilitating some events of the IAHR Congress for which Forrest Holly chaired the local organizing committee were on hand in San Francisco in August to celebrate their Iowa heritage Iowans from afar who were there included Ichiro Fujita visitor 1995 96 Taizo Hayashi visitor 1969 70 Zengnan Dong visitor 1983 84 Radu Damian student 1971 72 Sotoaki Onishi student 1963 64 Toshimitsu Komatsu visitor 1982 83 1987 J C Tatinclaux Ph D 69 Hung Tao Shen Ph D 74 Yoshiaki Iwasa frequent visitor Rene Chevray Ph D 67 Helmut Kobus Ph D 65 Fred Locher Ph D 69 Carlos Alonso Ph D 70 Jim Dooge M S 56 Ben Yen Ph D 65 Oleg Vasiliev frequent visitor Byungman Yoon Ph D 91 Kyung Soo Jun Ph D 91 Debi Bauer M S 96 Marty Teal M S 93 Terry Sturm Ph D 76 Claus Zimmerman thesis research 1973 John McNown M S 37 S K Nanda M S 68 and Mohammad Gill adjunct faculty 1985 A good time was had by all Others joined the group but did not sign the attendance list There were 55 in all at the traditional Iowa breakfast It is gratifying that you read and enjoy this letter and actually miss it if you don t receive it at the regular time Our apologies to all for the lateness of this issue but especially to Daniel Rueda M S 54 who sent an inquiry about it Visit us any time via IIHR s new and improved website http old iihr uiowa edu or do it the old fashioned way come in the flesh An excuse could be to attend the next American Towing Tank Conference hosted by IIHR and held in Iowa City in September 1998 It is being organized by V C and Fred and will include a special session in memory of Lou Landweber We hope to see you then IIHR Staff P S ONE TIME OFFER IIHR has some extra copies of Hunter Rouse s Hydraulics in the United States 1776 1976 If you send us a label we will send you a copy free of charge These will be sent by surface mail unless you include US 5 for postage Does that sound like a deal or what Other Staff News V C Patel was awarded the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Fluids Engineering Award for 1997 and delivered a special lecture at the award ceremony in June in Vancouver B C Fred Stern and Eric Paterson Ph D 94 were
