Scientific Computing Doctoral candidate Eitan Lees was accepted as a presenter at the 2018 Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference to be held May 29 – June 1 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The conference is sponsored by MIT, the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth and CNRS, France’s National Center for Scientific Research.
Lees will present a workshop based on his research entitled, Electroneutrality constraints in nonlocal models, in which a nonlocal Nernst-Planck model is applied to a one-dimensional liquid junction problem, and two electrolytic solutions of different ionic concentrations are brought into contact via a permeable membrane. The research investigates how well charge conservation and Gauss’ law satisfy the criterion of strict electroneutrality.
The Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference is an annual event sponsored by the Engineering Mechanics Institute, the foremost organization of the engineering mechanics community. EMI conferences offer idea exchange, research review, and collaborative opportunities both in the United States and abroad. Lees was awarded a travel stipend from the department to cover a portion of conference costs.
