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.
A materials science camp is one of several initiatives where The University of Alabama reaches into K-12 classrooms through its direct interaction with elementary, middle and high-school teachers.
Most people know about refrigerator magnets. How about magnetic refrigerators? A University of Alabama professor of physics says a magnetic refrigerator operating at room temperature would use a third as much electricity as a typical home refrigerator. But there's reasons you won't yet find one on aisle five.
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.
Think, for a second, about the size of a red blood cell. Now, imagine anything that’s about 7,000 times smaller. That would be a nanometer. It’s also representative of the world in which a host of University of Alabama researchers are involved.
Don’t call him a break dancer; Wesley Nixon is a b-boy. While the ‘b’ does originate from the word break, it’s considered to some an insult to call it break dancing, a term coined by the media in the 1980s.
Pumping gas into your car may be unnecessary in a few years. Instead, many vehicles on the highways could run on hydrogen fuel cells. Research at The University of Alabama is helping move this scenario toward reality.
If less is more, researchers in The University of Alabama's Center for Materials Information Technology, or MINT, have struck gold in their attempts to discover how to store greater amounts of data in smaller storage spaces.
A research team in The University of Alabama's College of Engineering is assisting the U.S. Air Force in selecting the best steel alloy to use in its next generation of air-launched weapons.
Shelby Hall, The University of Alabama's $50 million interdisciplinary teaching and research complex, is on schedule to meet a November 2003 completion date.
