We are proud to host Siemens represented by Dr. Omar Hinai, an Alum of CSEM PhD program.  Poster is attached. Everyone is welcome to join!


Abstract:  This talk will give an overview of STAR-CCM+, a commercial computational fluid dynamics software developed at Siemens. STAR-CCM+ supports modeling and analysis for many engineering problems such as fluid flow, heat transfer, and electromagnetics. In addition to this overview, he will highlight some of the newest features that we have added to the software. Finally, he will also talk about his life and career after graduating from the CSEM-UT Austin program in 2014.


Speaker Bio: Omar graduated from the CSEM PhD program in 2014 under the supervision of Dr. Mary Wheeler. His dissertation studied mimetic finite differences for two-phase flow problems. He continued in a postdoc position at the Oden Institute before moving to Siemens as a software developer in 2016.
