- Assistant Professor Xiang Cheng and his research group recently won a Gallery of Fluid Motion Award at the 67th American Physical Society (APS) Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD) for their research on "Raindrop impact on a sandy surface." The study was conducted in Cheng's lab by three undergraduate chemical engineering students (Runchen Zhao (ChemE '14), Qianyun Zhang (ChemE '14) and Hendro Tjugito (ChemE '13)). A panel of eminent scholars evaluated and finally selected three award winners out of 75 video submissions, based on videos' artistic value, scientific content, and originality. The winning entries will be published as a special supplement to Physics of Fluids.
