Episode Description

In this episode of PDXPLORES, Raúl Bayoán Cal, Professor of Mechanical & Materials Engineering at the Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science, discusses his latest National Science Foundation award-winning research, Uncovering Transient Dynamics and Equilibrium States of Particle Aggregates in Fluids, investigating transient dynamics of fluid mechanics in the absence of gravity. These experiments, which utilize the Dryden Drop Tower and research facilities aboard the International Space Station, will benefit the study of granular media in aggregation models such as pollen deposition, algae growth, and plastic pollution.
