A new research center at Iowa State is making new and innovative discoveries in one of the campus’s oldest buildings. The Iowa Board of Regents in December 2017 elected to give official “center” status to the Center for Multiphase Flow Research and Education, also known as CoMFRE. In order to gain the status of “center” … Continue reading Old meets new to make one of ISU’s newest centers a reality
Researchers explore stress levels of people interacting in traffic systems through use of augmented reality techniques When you drive through an accident scene, do you feel nervous? Perhaps stressed by the cars swerving in and out, slowing to a crawl and then speeding up. And does your stress affect the traffic situation around you? Researchers … Continue reading Iowa State researchers formulate InterchangeSE project to study interactions between different modes of travel
Civil engineering students work with university student organization to drill mechanized wells for safe water sources in Northern Ghana Ullo is a small village. So small, in fact, that you may have trouble finding it with a Google Maps search. This small village in the northern region of Ghana is where two civil engineering students … Continue reading Engineers Without Borders – Iowa State University Chapter brings water to Ullo, Ghana
Halil Ceylan’s heated pavement technology was featured on The Today Show. Watch the video to see just how quickly the heated runways can melt away snow and ice.
Iowa State University’s Engineers Without Borders has returned to the village of Ullo, in northwest Ghana, to continue a project to extend the availability of drinking water from the four-month “wet season” to a year-round supply. “”To say that my life has been changed by this opportunity seems like such an understatement,” said Kelsey Brandt, a senior in chemical engineering, who also travelled to Ullo both in 2014 and 2016. “The second my feet hit that dusty ground, I felt at home.”
