Researchers Combine Simulation, Experiment for Nanoscale 3-D Printing

Aug. 6, 2016 — A research team has created a high-power simulation and design process to print free-standing 3-D structures on the nanoscale using focused electron beam induced deposition. The simulation-guided ... read more

Aug. 2, 2016 — Concrete is everywhere -- a ubiquity owed to its strength as a building material. Despite its strength, however, it has a pernicious but inescapable tendency to 'creep,' or deform ... read more

Aug. 3, 2016 — Researchers are developing a common language that can be used by computer software tools to describe materials at their smallest scale, with the ultimate aim of designing faster and better materials ... read more

Lattice Structure Absorbs Vibrations

July 29, 2016 — Researchers have developed a lattice structure capable of absorbing a wide range of vibrations while also being useful as a load-bearing component -- for example, in propellers, rotors and rockets. ... read more

Disposable and Ultrafast Optical Humidity Sensors Provide Better Moisture Control for Manufacturing and Storage

July 27, 2016 — Researchers have designed a low-cost, stable and ultrafast responsive sensor that is easy to manufacture, overcoming the challenge of producing a simple, fast and highly sensitive ... read more

July 26, 2016 — A new earthquake-resilient pipeline has been designed to better protect southern California’s water utility network from natural disasters. The test mimicked a fault rupture that can occur during ... read more

July 25, 2016 — Moisture can destroy mortar over time -- for example when cracks form as a result of frost. A team of scientists has found an unusual way to protect mortar from moisture: When the material is being ... read more

July 21, 2016 — A drilling tool that will withstand the heat of geothermal drilling has now been developed by scientists. The downhole hammer attaches to the end of a column of drill pipe and cuts through rock with ... read more

July 13, 2016 — A new generation of indestructible bridges could be possible, thanks to new research. An engineer has taken a design process called 'form-finding', inspired by the natural world, into ... read more

Researchers Report Cybersecurity Risks in 3-D Printing

July 13, 2016 — Researchers examined two aspects of additive manufacturing (AM), or 3-D printing, that could have cybersecurity implications and harmful economic impact: printing orientation and insertion of fine ... read more

Making a Multi-Use, Stiff Carbon Foam Using Bread

July 13, 2016 — Sturdy, lightweight carbon foam has many structural and insulating applications in aerospace engineering, energy storage and temperature maintenance. Current methods to create this material run into ... read more

July 13, 2016 — Researchers are a step closer to harvesting renewable or ambient energy from mobile phone base stations to power battery-operated wireless sensors used in industries including health and ... read more

July 11, 2016 — Crushed corn stalk, sawdust and coconut fiber are some of the waste from the farm industry that are useful to create biomaterials that can be use in construction and shipment industry. All this made ... read more

Graphene Flexes Its Muscles in New Study

July 7, 2016 — The unique properties of graphene and graphene foam could one day be used to regenerate 3-dimensional tissues and organs for implantation into the human body, new research ... read more

Recycled Plastic Lumber Invented

July 7, 2016 — Imagine a material lighter than steel, longer-lasting than lumber and strong enough to support 120-ton locomotives. Now imagine that material is made from milk containers, coffee cups and other ... read more
