The Science Behind Plant-Based Foods
You have probably heard of almond milk, coconut milk, and oat milk. But are you familiar with potato milk? This milk substitute hit grocery shelves in Europe in early 2022.
A Novel Technique for Producing Ultrastrong 2D Polymers
A group of materials science researchers have developed a new polymerization technique for producing strong and lightweight 2D polymers (a creation that was thought to be impossible!)
Validating an Acoustic Ray Tracing Simulation of a Chamber Music Hall
The well-known Konzerthaus Berlin theater boasts 3 separate halls: The Grand Hall, the Small Hall, and the modern Werner Otto Hall. Here, we explore the acoustics of the Small Hall with simulation.
The Science Behind Lie Detector Tests
Polygraph machines accurately monitor cardiovascular, respiratory, and electrodermal activity. But can they really determine whether a subject is being deceptive?
The Growing Use of Simulation in the Biomedical Industry
From implants and stents to MRI and spinal cord stimulation, numerical modeling is paramount to biomedical device development. Learn more and hear from key players in this industry.
The History and Science Behind Vinyl Records
As vinyl records explode in popularity, we take a look back at the history of records, as well as the interesting science behind how they are produced — and how they play music.
Happy Birthday, Egon Orowan
Egon Orowan found that the theory of dislocations could be used to explain the plastic deformation of ductile materials. He also studied geological fracture, munitions production, and more.
