    • Rotating Solar Thermal Collector Targets Cheap Renewable Energy (Revmodo)- August 13, 2012
    • Rather than a futuristic gun designed to destroy the moon, the structure is actually a solar thermal collector-a 10 foot by 10 foot device designed to follow the sun across the sky-and could put us on the fast track to cheaper solar energy. Unbeknownst ... More...
    • Catalyst improves methane combustion performance (The Engineer)- August 13, 2012
    • According to a statement, the discovery offers a way to more completely exploit energy from methane, potentially reducing emissions of this powerful greenhouse gas from vehicles that run on natural gas. The catalyst may also offer a cleaner and cheaper ... More...
    • Harvesting green tidal energy (Power Engineering Magazine)- August 6, 2012
    • Dhaka, Aug. 5 -- Ocean power is an endless source of renewable green energy. It is clean, environmentally acceptable and economically cheap. Electricity generation from ocean energy is based on tidal power, wave power, ocean thermal energy conversion, ... More...
    • Baratunde Cola Receives PECASE Award (White House)- August 3, 2012
    • The White House named Baratunde Cola, assistant professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, one of 96 recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). The award is the highest honor bestowed by the United States government on engineering and science professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers. More...
    • Professor Dimos Poulikakos receives the 2011 Max Jakob Memorial Award (ASME/AIChE)- July 30, 2012
    • Professor Dimos Poulikakos, an editoroal board member of Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, has been awarded the 2011 Max Jakob Memorial Award. The award was presented during the 2012 ASME HTFNMM Conference on July 10, 2012. The Max Jakob Memorial Award is the highest honor in the field of heat transfer, and has been awarded annually since 1962 by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers to a distinguished scientist.

    • Ocean Thermal Energy: An Untapped Resource (AZoCleantech)- July 23, 2012
    • Ocean thermal energy is derived from the solar energy that is absorbed by the oceans. Given that almost two-thirds of the planet's surface is covered by the oceans, the majority of solar radiation hitting Earth is absorbed and stored here. In terms of heat energy ... More...
    • To extinguish a hot flame, DARPA studied cold plasma (Phys.Org)- July 16, 2012
    • DARPA theorized that by using physics techniques rather than combustion chemistry, it might be possible to manipulate and extinguish flames. To achieve this, new research was required to understand and quantify the interaction of electromagnetic and ... More...
    • Learn about heat, cold and radiant energy at Discovery Center (Rockford Register Star)- July 16, 2012
    • Because everyone is talking about the heat, let's join the conversation from the sciencea side. Before we wade in, remember that (A) Everything is made of atoms and molecules, and atoms. And (B) Atoms and molecules are always in motion. More...
