Logoff

These policies and guidelines have been developed for ASE/EM faculty members who want to print and display research posters that were not developed for our graduate recruiting or external advisory committee events.

Guidelines for posters that are being developed by graduate students for departmental events can be found here.

Printing & Hanging

The UT Sign Shop can print posters and takes UT account numbers as payment. The department will not cover the cost of posters printed for research purposes unless the posters are being developed for graduate recruiting. Instructions on how to submit your request can be found here. The UT Sign Shop can also arrange to install the poster for you as well, but will charge a fee.

Poster Frames

If you need to have something custom framed, Hobby Lobby and Michael’s do custom framing at a reasonable cost.

General Research Poster Design Guidelines

ASE/EM Identities (Logos)

Please be sure to follow the Cockrell School's Brand Standards Manual when using the official ASE/EM identities.

Fonts

The Cockrell School of Engineering follows The University of Texas at Austin's font recommendations.

Benton Sans/Benton Sans Condensed is the preferred primary font. GT Sectra is a secondary font. Both typefaces are available worldwide in PC and Apple formats. Arial is also acceptable for posters.

Colors

It’s okay to have a variety of colors in the posters. For suggestions on colors to use in sidebars, charts, graphs, follow UT’s official color palette here

Prolific Earth Gravity Satellites End Science Mission: NASA Release

ASE/EM Professor Byron Tapley led the amazing GRACE mission for over 15 years, which has been providing valuable data about the changes in the planet’s water, ice and land.

Research Visualized

  • Deepwater Horizon Spill
    Deepwater Horizon Spill
    This Landsat 5 image of the Mississippi Delta was collected in May 2010 and used to observe and forecast the movement of surface oil slicks during the Bp Deepwater Horizon spill. -Center for Space Research (Dawson and Wells Research Groups)
  • Two Point Alignment
    Two Point Alignment
    Experimental laser set up used to make Raman scattering measurements in flames. The laser beam is bounced back and forth between highly reflective mirrors while maintaining a tight focus at two points so as to make measurements with high spatial resolution (within a very small volume). -Laser Sensors Lab (Varghese Research Group)
  • HexaCopter
    HexaCopter
    Todd Humphreys and his research team successfully performed GPS spoofing attacks on a 213-foot superyacht while it traveled on the Mediterranean Sea. A hexacopter with an HD video camera flies near the superyacht's satellite antennas. -Radionavigation Lab (Humphreys Research Group)
  • Pluto and Charon
    Pluto and Charon
    As Pluto's upper atmosphere escapes into space, a portion is attracted toward its largest moon, Charon, which captures a thin atmosphere of its own. Charon's gravity draws particles onto its leading face while focusing them into a high density (orange) region in its wake. -Computational Fluid Physics Lab (Goldstein/Varghese)

  • Simulation of Perturbed Jet
    Simulation of Perturbed Jet
    A shallow water simulation of a perturbed jet (at day 6) on the earth's surface using an upwind Hybridized Discontinuous Galerkin method. The figure shows the (relative) vorticity field of a barotropcially unstable (zonal) flow. -Computational Engineering and Optimization Group (Bui-Thanh)
  • Chaotic Flames
    Chaotic Flames
    This chaotic flame, which is burning jet fuel in the Flowfield Imaging Laboratory, helps to assess the sooting characteristics of new types of fuels, like those derived from natural gas. (Clemens Research Group)
  • Graphene Grown on Copper
    Graphene Grown on Copper
    This scanning electron microscope shows monolayer (lighter) and bilayer (darker) graphene grown on copper. The underlying copper grain structure and ridges within its grains can be seen. Bilayer graphene has a characteristic wrinkling pattern. -Liechti Research Group


  • Stretchable Electronics
    Stretchable Electronics
    A researcher is handling a 1um thick semi-transparent polyimide film as a substrate for stretchable electronics inside a glove box because polyimide is sensitive to moisture during the curing process. -Mechanics of Bio-Integrated Electronics Lab (Lu Research Group)
  • Computational Fluid Physics Laboratory
    Computational Fluid Physics Laboratory
    Computational layer transitioning from laminar-to-turbulent behind a roughness element. -Computational Fluid Physics Laboratory (Goldstein Research Group)
  • Rippling of Graphene Sheet
    Rippling of Graphene Sheet
    An atomistic landscape: Rippling of a graphene sheet (a monolayer of carbon atoms) -Huang Research Group
  • Earth's Time-Averaged Gravity Field
    Earth's Time-Averaged Gravity Field

    This image of Earth's time-averaged gravity field shows features in the continental and oceanic crust with unprecedented detail for use in studies of ocean circulation, structure and properties of the Earth's crust, surveying, and terrestrial space navigation. -Center for Space Research

  • Simulation of Boiling and Condensation
    Simulation of Boiling and Condensation
    Vapor bubbles are generated at discrete sites of the heated bottom surface. The vapor flows are condensed to liquid droplets on the top cooled boundary. Density isosurfaces and velocity streamlines are depicted. -ICES Computational Mechanics Group (Liu and Hughes)


  • RACE Satellite
    RACE Satellite
    The RACE (Radiometer Atmospherc Cubesat Experiment) satellite uses reflected radiation from the Earth to measure atmospheric water vapor. UT is partnering with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory on the RACE mission. -Texas Satellite Lab
  • Strain Contours
    Strain Contours
    Strain contours from DIC analysis of an isothermal tension experiment on pseudoelastic NiTi tube. The results show the helical fingered deformation pattern through which the phase transformation spreads. -Center for Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Materials (Kyriakides Research Group)
  • Plasma Streams
    Plasma Streams
    Pulsed plasma jets are used to control separation in a shock wave/boundary layer interacion. The photo was captured in a mach 3 wind tunnel at the JJ pickle Research Campus. The flow is from left to right and the shock is induced by the compression ramp at right. -Flowfield Imaging Lab (Clemens Research Group)
