Presentation at the 76th Annual Meeting of the Division of Fluid Dynamics in Washington D.C., November 19-21, 2023.

By Jordan I Breveleri

I attended the 76th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics in Washington D.C. from November 19-21, 2023, where I presented my research on drag reduction in marine vessels using porous superhydrophobic surfaces (SHS). The conference served as a dynamic platform for researchers to exchange ideas and advancements in the field. The APS (American Physical Society) Division of Fluid Dynamics Conference provided an excellent platform for researchers to discuss and share their findings in fluid dynamics.

My presentation focused on the innovative use of porous SHS to reduce drag in marine vessels. By injecting gas through the porous surface, an air layer can be sustained, effectively minimizing drag. The presentation primarily showcased the results of my research and highlighted its potential applications in fluid dynamics. The surreal atmosphere of Washington D.C., steeped in history, offered an inspiring setting for scientific discourse. The city’s rich cultural and national significance added an extra layer of depth to the conference experience, making it both professionally and personally enriching.

Presenting in front of a diverse audience was initially nerve-wracking, but with the support of my professor and peers, I successfully navigated the challenge. The engaging discussions and feedback further enhanced the presentation experience, providing valuable insights into my work. Aside from presenting my research, I attended various talks during the conference, gaining diverse insights into fluid dynamics. One particularly intriguing presentation focused on aurora lights, offering a fascinating perspective on the broader spectrum of research within the field.

The conference was an invaluable experience. Presenting my research and attending other panels created a memorable professional journey. The conference not only provided a platform for knowledge exchange but also fostered connections and collaboration within the fluid dynamics community. Overall, it was a rewarding experience that contributed significantly to my understanding of the field.
