Optimizing the use of cleaning technologies

We know it from our own homes: bulky kitchen utensils and appliances are difficult to clean. In industry, complex components are more the rule than the exception and present big challenges for the design of cleaning systems. ...

Cool flames for better engines

A "cool flame" may sound contradictory, but it's an important element of diesel combustion—one that, once properly understood, could enable better engine designs with higher efficiency and fewer emissions.

Taking the momentum out of vibrations

Diesel engines vibrate. This produces tremendous stress on the components of ships. Adaptronic systems effectively reduce these vibrations. At the maritime trade fair SMM, Fraunhofer researchers are presenting a simulation ...

Engine design takes a major leap at Argonne

The search for a truly revolutionary engine design that can make dramatic gains in efficiency requires deep scientific understanding and tools. Lots and lots of tools.

Researchers describe the role of water in protein folding

A study developed by researchers at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona (UB), published in the journal Physical Review Letters, describes the contribution of water to the three-dimensional structure of proteins ...

Argonne pushing boundaries of computing in engine simulations

When you're trying to understand the complex inner workings of a virtual engine, with its millions of variables and untold number of uncertainties, the most important horsepower number isn't the one under the hood; it's the ...
