Technique Offers Advance in Testing Micro-Scale Compressive Strength of Cement
Researchers have, for the first time, used a “micropillar compression” technique to characterize the micro-scale strength of cement, allowing for the development of cement with desirable strength properties for civil engineering applications.
Study Finds Grad Students Benefit From Industry-University Collaborations
A new study finds graduate students garner professional benefits from being trained as part of research consortia that bring together university and industry partners.
New Techniques Boost Performance of Non-Volatile Memory Systems
Researchers have developed new software and hardware designs that should limit programming errors and improve system performance in devices that use non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies.
Keratin, Pigment, Proteins From 54 Million-Year-Old Sea Turtle Show Survival Trait Evolution
Fossil tissues show that a pigment-based survival trait common to modern sea turtles evolved at least 54 million years ago.
Study Finds Auto-Fix Tool Gets More Programmers to Upgrade Code
Failure to make necessary upgrades to software code can have dire consequences, such as the major data breach at Equifax.
Tracing Subglacial Water Storage
Some 70 percent of the world’s population consumes water that has glacial input, so it’s important to understand how these icy giants operate.
Study Shows How Rough Microparticles Can Cause Big Problems
New research finds the surface texture of microparticles in liquid suspension can cause internal friction that significantly alters the suspension’s viscosity – effectively making the liquid thicker or thinner.
