Jeff Allen established the Microfluidics & Interfacial Transport Lab (MnIT) to study and advance the understanding of interfacial phenomena, particularly gas-liquid interfaces where capillary forces are important.
Throughout aero-vehicle evolution, scientists and engineers have attempted to improve engine efficiency—making engines smaller, lighter, quieter, fuel-efficient, and yet more powerful. Song-Lin (Jason) Yang has been studying jet engines since 1989, using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to examine problems in engine fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and combustion.
Johnson to Chair National Academies Committee
John Johnson has been appointed chair of the National Academies committee created to review Phase 2 of the 21st Century Truck Partnership Program. Launched in 2000, the program’s mission is to explore technological improvements in commercial and military trucks and buses.
Michigan Tech Professor Helps Draft Road Map to Fuel-Efficient Trucks, Cars: Building fuel-efficient vehicles comes at a price, says John Johnson.
