Mechanical Engineering graduate student wins NASA poster competition

5 Dec

Naveenan Thiagarajan, a doctoral candidate in Mechanical Engineering, won first place in a poster competition at the recent 2012 American Society for Gravitational and Space Research Conference held in New Orleans.

The poster was titled “Gravitational Effects on Bubble Dynamics in Pool Boiling on Asymmetric Surfaces” and was co-authored by Sushil Bhavnani, professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department, and co-investigators Logan Strid and Vinod Narayanan from Oregon State University.

The poster was based on a collaboration between researchers at Auburn University and Oregon State, which involved experiments aboard NASA’s reduced gravity aircraft in May 2012.
