Fischer assists Argonne to conduct largest-ever simulation of flow inside internal combustion engineJuly 22, 2020 - MechSE and CS professor Paul Fischer consulted with the scientists on the validity of the calculations of the Nek5000, Nek5000, Argonne's fluid-thermal simulation code.
July 17, 2020 - Faculty involved in the Center for Wearable Intelligent Technologies aim to improve human health, wellness, and performance.
July 17, 2020 - Recent PhD graduate Kitt Peterson was recently published in Science and will be joining the Georgia Tech Research Institute Advanced Concepts Laboratory next month.
July 15, 2020 - Professor Taher Saif and grad student Mohamed Elhebeary have elucidated a mechanical behavior in silicon, a material used widely in the electronics industry.
July 14, 2020 - MechSE undergrad Nolan Clarke and his team have created vrtumind, a mobile app that utilizes personalized technology such as audio, AR (augmented reality), and VR (virtual reality) to help young adults develop mindful habits.
July 7, 2020 - Motif, with Professor Randy Ewoldt and engineers from the University of Illinois at Chicago, will explore how rheological research and principals from mechanical and chemical engineering can be applied to design better plant-based foods.
July 7, 2020 - Researchers have developed a new method to improve the noise associated with nanoscale chemical imaging using atomic force microscopy. The improvements will increase the versatility and the precision of the instrument.
July 1, 2020 - Katie Matlack's new materials could be used for protective equipment, such as armor or components of vehicles or aircrafts. Instead of adding extra elements or active mechanisms to give a desired property, they could be designed into the material itself.
July 1, 2020 - In this time of converging crises, as task forces and committees form to address the incredibly important and timely issues of racial justice and health-care inequities, the same underrepresented faculty members will undoubtedly be asked to do more and more. They will be asked to spend time helping advance the very system that, when it comes to tenure and promotion, does not value the work they are asked to do.
June 29, 2020 - Arielle Pfeil and Haley Tholen, both research assistants in Amy Wagoner Johnson's lab, won Outstanding Poster Presentation awards at the Undergraduate Research Symposium in the spring.
June 29, 2020 - Gabriel Juarez and grad student Vincent Hickl hope to gain a better understanding of the impact of bacterial growth on oil droplet size and morphology, which would help guide oil spill mitigation strategies by informing decision-makers with fundamental and sound scientific results.
June 26, 2020 - Assistant Professor Lili Cai was named to MIT Technology Review's 35 Under 35 list for her development of energy-efficient textiles.
June 24, 2020 - Kyle Smith and Sizhe Liu say that new modeling processes can be used to inform electrode material/microstructure design, to assign energy losses to electrode-scale mass and charge transport mechanisms, to bridge length scales, and to capture kinetic and diffusion processes when battery-like electrode materials are used in water desalination applications.
