    December 03, 2019: Dr. Le Dinh Anh (VNU Univ. Eng. Tech.), A Simplified Thermodynamic Model for Numerical Simulation of Cavitating Flow with Thermodynamic Effect

    Cavitation is a phenomenon in that liquid evaporates and vapor bubbles appear in the region of liquid pressure roughly below the saturated vapor pressure due to the flow acceleration. In the region of the pressure recoveries to freestream pressure, the cavitation bubbles collapse that generates the strong pressure wave in flow field that raises the local pressure up to several thousand atmospheric pressure and local temperature to thousand Kelvin. That causes negative effects like erosion on the material, noise, and instability. Then, the performance of hydraulic machinery is decreased. When cavitation occurs, the latent heat for vaporization is supplied from the surrounding liquid of liquid-bubble interface, which decreases the liquid temperature. That results in a drop of the saturated vapor pressure. Then, the bubble growth is delayed and cavitation is suppressed. Hence, the performance of hydraulic machinery could be improved. This phenomenon is called “thermodynamics effect of cavitation”. Therefore, the understanding of thermodynamic effect on cavitation is crucial for the design of the reliable and high performance of hydraulic machinery such as the inducer or hot water feed pump. This study develops a simple, broadly applicable thermodynamic model for homogeneous model that can satisfactorily predict the thermodynamic effect on cavitation for variety flow fields and fluids.

He has been working in School of Aerospace Engineering in the University of Engineering and Technology as a lecturer since October 2019. His research interests include EFD/CFD of cavitation and interaction of turbulence and thermodynamic effect, cavitation suppression technique.


    February 2, 2024: Dr. Khoa D. Doan (Vin Univeristy) Toward Reliable and Practical Machine Learning Applications

    While Machine Learning (ML) has rapidly transformed several domains and applications with incredible successes, there are also important areas where the progress is significantly slower. Specifically, there exists a widened complexity gap between the methods currently investigated in research and those used in practice in these areas. One reason is that many algorithms, despite achieving […]

    February 2, 2024: Prof. Heng Ji (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Combating with Misinformation and Cancer: A Unified Multimodal AI Approach to Healthy and Happy Life

    A research overview of ongoing research projects, especially focusing on two that are most related to the VinUni-UIUC Smart Health Center: (1) Misinformation Detection and Trustworthy Large Language Models; (2) Joint Natural Language and Molecule Learning for Drug Discovery. Unsurprisingly these two seemingly different research problems can be tackled with a unified approach based on […]

    January 11, 2024: Dr. Le Duc Trong (FIT-UET) Resilient Multimodal Learning for Multimodal Emotion Recognition in the Presence of Incomplete Modalities

    Multimodal Emotion Recognition in Conversation (Multimodal ERC) is a critical area of research for interpreting human communication in diverse applications. Nevertheless, the persistent issue of uncertain missing modalities poses a major hurdle, hampering the development of robust Multimodal ERC models. Existing approaches face limitations in effectively leveraging a fusion of diverse data modalities encompassing audio, […]
