Turing Club series of talks continues 15th March 2017 at 1pm Frank Adams 1
Come and join us for the next talk tomorrow and then at various dates over the semester. This time the title is "Mathematics of Inkjet printing"
The next Turing Club talk of the semester will take place TOMORROW (15th March) at 1pm in Frank Adams 1, where Dr Alice Thompson will tell us about...
The mathematics of inkjet printing
"Inkjet printing is a very familiar technology for graphics applications -- images are formed from separated coloured dots, printed on a page, and our brains are tricked into seeing a continuous image. However, inkjet printing can also be used as method to manufacture tiny devices and structures, such as printed circuit boards, LEDs, and scaffolds for tissue engineering. In all of these applications, printed liquid drops must coalesce in order to make a coherent structure, and this enables many interesting and unexpected interactions. In this talk, I will talk about my research on printing long thin lines from several overlapping droplets, how the behaviour can be described by quite simple models and how it might be controlled, and why experiments and numerical simulations are essential for both understanding the fundamental physical mechanisms and predicting future behaviour.''

The talks are aimed at level 3/4 students + MSc. students but everyone is welcome!
