Event location: 
Larsen 234

This Friday, Jessica Sockwell will be giving a seminar on micropillar shear stress sensors. Micropillar shear stress sensors have been developed in recent years with the goal of attaining full-field shear stress measurements within turbulent boundary layers. This talk will explain how the sensors work, summarize the design and fabrication of these devices, highlight their strengths and weaknesses, and discuss how these sensors might be further improved for future use.
