Deafening noise during combustion can lead to jet engine failure. A University of Alabama engineering professor, working with the U.S. Navy, uses a sponge-like material to reduce engine noise at its source.
Three research projects, funded with nearly $13 million, involve University of Alabama scientists studying the feasibility of pumping carbon dioxide into the ground as an alternative to releasing the greenhouse gas into the atmosphere.
In a step toward developing lighter, more fuel efficient aerospace vehicles, Dr. Samit Roy collaborates with NASA on ways to strengthen an amazingly-light solid.
A UA hydrogeologist, who developed a computer model that became the industry standard for predicting movement of groundwater contaminants, is part of a team focusing on the nation's most contaminated nuclear site.
From chemists to physicists to engineers, researchers throughout The University of Alabama campus are working to develop systems designed to reduce harmful emissions, produce new ways to harness energy, improve efficiency and increase fuel flexibility.
One of the world’s most closely monitored experiments recently yielded its initial findings. The results, made public April 11, were made possible, in part, by three University of Alabama scientists who developed one of the primary sets of code used in key portions of the internationally-known effort’s computer analysis.
From national security issues, to high oil prices, to environmental impacts, reasons for the growing search for alternative energy sources are broad-based. Now, a national security laboratory, with an assist from a University of Alabama engineer, is using what appear to be giant, steel traffic cones to try and turn nuclear fusion into a realistic energy alternative.
As gas prices hover near the $3 a gallon mark, drivers are tempted to try and squeeze every inch of travel possible from each drop of gasoline.
A new alliance is coordinating a partnership of landowners, private industry, government and academic institutions that will accelerate research to advance the commercialization of energy and chemicals from biomass. The Southern Alliance for the Utilization of Biomass Resources will be headquartered at The University of Alabama's Alabama Institute for Manufacturing Excellence.
How are Portugal, Escambia County, Ala., and researchers in The University of Alabama's Center for Sedimentary Basin Studies related? Well, each plays a role in this nation's efforts to improve the recovery of domestic oil. And this is quickly becoming a near vital effort.
