On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email

When: Friday, April 26, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Where: 2164 Martin Hall
Event Type(s): Seminar

"Promoting Energy Efficiency in Commercial Buildings Using Natural Ventilation"
Presented by: Dr. Leon R. Glicksman (MIT)

Mechanical cooling usage is rising in many parts of the world, leading to increases in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Glicksman will Cool Vent, a design tool based on computational fluid dynamics simulations and building data. He will also present initial results of its use in a central Tokyo office building.

Dr. Leon R. Glicksman is a Professor of Building Technology and Mechanical Engineering at MIT. He obtained his bachelor's and doctorate degrees at MIT, and his master's degree at Stanford.
