Dinosaur breathing study shows that noses enhanced smelling and cooled brain
It's been millions of years since T. rex took its last breath, but a team led by Ohio University scientists is breathing life back into dinosaurs using high-powered computer simulations to model airflow throug ...
Engineers complete first comprehensive mesh-free numerical simulation of skeletal muscle tissue
Engineers at the University of California, San Diego, have completed the first comprehensive numerical simulation of skeletal muscle tissue using a method that uses the pixels in an image as data points for ...
Weather service storm forecasts get more localized
The National Weather Service can now give better, faster and more pinpointed severe weather forecasts because of new computer simulations.
Scientists develop a more efficient way to crunch climate numbers
Mirroring the climate using ones and zeros takes a lot of computing power. Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory found a way to reduce that power hungry need dramatically with a novel computational ...
Computer simulations suggest aridification of Sahara occurred longer ago than thought
Computer simulations visualize ion flux
Ion channels are involved in many physiological and pathophysiological processes throughout the human body. A young team of researchers led by pharmacologist Anna Stary-Weinzinger from the Department of Pharmacology ...

Horses and other animals inspire new designs for smarter, faster, more agile robotic legs.
Computer simulation suggests early Earth bombarded by asteroids and comets
Study shows dam design effective for earthquakes
There has long been a concern among civil engineers that dams could fail days or weeks after an earthquake, even if no immediate evidence of a problem surfaced.
Simulations show Mercury may have been victim of hit-and-run collision
How knots can swap positions on a DNA strand
Physicists of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and the Graduate School of Excellence "Materials Science in Mainz" (MAINZ) have been able with the aid of computer simulations to confirm and explain ...
Trio of physicists create computer simulation of dark matter using an empirical function
Scheduling algorithms based on game theory makes better use of computational resources
