James Schauer holds a unique position as both an air pollution expert and a leader in the state’s response to the pandemic.
In the future, these new types of armor could potentially be used as a shield on military vehicles to provide enhanced protection from bullets, as well as on spacecraft to mitigate impacts from meteorite debris.
UW–Madison engineers and Field Day Lab game designers have developed options for productive screen time for kids at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The models use a swath of relevant, research-based parameters to predict the number of cases of in the region.
UW-Madison researchers demonstrated a method for using magnetic fields to remotely induce soft composite materials to rearrange their internal structure into a variety of new patterns.
“You can’t cool too little; you can’t cool too much; and you can’t wait too long following an injury to start treatment,” says mechanical engineer Christian Franck. And when the researchers identified that sweet spot, the results were striking.
Answering the call: Engineering alum races from Utah to Wisconsin to contribute ventilator expertise
“It didn’t hit me until I got back to the facility and saw how many people are coming to volunteer. There are so many people who are giving up a lot to do this. It’s really, truly amazing to be a part of it.”
The group has built prototypes and launched a website where it's encouraging healthcare facilities, manufacturers and donors to fill out an intake form to help assess need and build more connections while production capacity is rapidly expanded.
To grow layers of single-crystal oxides for electronic components requires neighboring layers to interlock like Lego blocks. A new method throws out that limitation, producing new capabilities for data storage, sensing, energy technologies, biomedical devices and many other applications.
The university's civil and environmental engineering students will host the regional competition April 2–4 and the national competition June 13–15. UW–Madison won five consecutive national titles from 2003 to 2007.
“If we can understand the key factors causing cell migration, then we could perhaps develop new treatments to speed up wound healing,” says Jacob Notbohm, an assistant professor of engineering physics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
The UW–Madison College of Engineering's Makerspace held a workshop Oct. 24 to teach the basics of thermoforming and mold making by creating Halloween masks. Makerspace Workshops are geared toward newcomers and are open to all UW–Madison students, faculty, staff and alumni.
New accelerated Master of Science in Design + Innovation engages five disciplines, sparks creativity, excites employers
Combining expertise from five schools and colleges with team-based interaction, the program promises to offer students a breadth of highly desired skills.
Reversing baldness could someday be as easy as wearing a hat, thanks to a noninvasive, low-cost hair-growth-stimulating technology developed by UW–Madison engineers.
