I will give a public lecture on Monday, 19 September at 4:30 pm here at Lynchburg College. My talk will be the first Science Gang lecture of the current academic year. It will be held in Hopwood Auditorium. A flyer for my talk appears below (click on the image for a larger view).
I will discuss the research work I did at the University of Sheffield in England during my sabbatical. Topics include friction between tennis shoe and hard court, soccer aerodynamics, and Tour de France modeling. Because friction was such an important part of my research, I’ll make connections to other types of frictions seen during our travels throughout Europe. Check out my talk if you find yourself in the Lynchburg area on Monday the 19th.
