SEPTEMBER 4-19 Launching | Art + Design Foundations Exhibition Exhibition features student work created in the four different College of Visual and Performing Arts foundations courses including drawing, two-dimensional and three-dimensional design, as well as digital platforms. Curated by Jason Loete.
Location: UMASS Dartmouth CVPA Star Store Campus Lecture Hall As historic weather related events are on the rise it is important to stay informed about what we all can do to make our homes live on into the next century. Now more than ever, communities in the Southcoast are realizing the importance of preserving coastal history, architecture, and economies. DATMA is recognizing preservation firms dedicated to doing just that and on September 19, as one of the final Summer Winds events, they'll be sharing their valuable insight along with their current & future projects. All welcome to this complimentary event at the Star Store lecture space. Our three featured firms leading this conversation include; Waterfront Historic Area League (W.H.A.L.E), Studio2Sustain, and Newport Restoration Foundation CONTACT: DATMA 774 264 3696
Come join the Leduc Center and Unity House celebrate the International Day of Peace. The event will start at the Peace Pole, located in front of Residential Dining.

TITLE : Prediction, Optimization, and Simulation of Additive Manufacturing Process Using Surrogate Modeling DATE: Friday, September 20, 2019 TIME: 1 PM LOCATION: TXT-105 Abstract: Nowadays, additive manufacturing (AM) technologies are becoming transformative methodologies that can deliberate a flexible and efficient production system. AM uses the computer-aided-design (CAD) software to deliver the desired output by depositing material, layer upon layer, through thermo-mechanical cycles. This process implies a multi-physics system that can build a full-scale functional part with a complex geometrical shape within short cycle-time. However, AM machine suppliers do not guarantee the best optimal settings for the AM process parameters. Accordingly, a multi-objective optimization problem (MOOP) is formulated constrained with space mapping problem. The computational complexity of the emerged MOOP prevents a broader adoption of additively manufactured functional parts. This work proposes a realistic and efficient data-driven approach for predicting, optimizing and simulating the additive manufacturing process parameters using surrogate modeling. The proposed themes consist of three popular methods: (1) Group Method for Data Handling (GMDH) variants as the engine of prediction modeling technique, the modified polynomial neural network can characterize the spatial collinearity for the input arguments along with dependency relationship among the multiple outputs. (2) Evolutionary algorithms (EA) to find the optimal operational settings and extract the Pareto-frontier space from the approximated design space. (3) Reduce-order modeling via proper generalized decomposition (PGD) to provide a numerical simulation for the AM process, which could expand the exploration of the design space. The numerical results from different data-driven techniques correlate well with the Abaqus FE simulation and the lab experimental results. This approach provides a feasible and realistic approach for the AM process modeling and optimization.

Italian Film Series: “The House of the Laughing Windows" (1976) Date: Wednesday, October 2, 2019 Time: 7:00 PM Place: LARTS 117 Description: Join us for our 5th Annual Italian Film Series at UMass Dartmouth, co-sponsored by the Foreign Literature and Languages Department and the History Department. This semester, we will be delving into various Italian films in the horror genre. To begin this semester's film series, we will show "The House of the Laughing Windows" (1976): Stefano, a young restorer, is commissioned to save a controversial mural located in the church of a small, isolated village (IMDB). Free admission. All films have English subtitles. Refreshments will be served. Any questions may be directed to Prof. Rose Facchini at email@example.com or Prof. Matthew Sneider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
