Iowa State University is part of an inter-university research project examining the intricacies of sprays. Ted Heindel, Bergles Professor of Thermal Science and university professor in mechanical engineering, is the lead researcher at the Iowa State site. Within Heindel’s Experimental Multiphase Flow Lab, the researchers are using X-rays and high-speed imaging to experimentally study the …Continue reading “Using X-rays and high-speed imaging to examine sprays”
Improving food systems in Iowa requires a lot more than just a knowledge of agriculture. Anuj Mittal, Ph.D. candidate in industrial engineering (IE) at Iowa State University, has been part of a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) study which will allow food hubs in Iowa to share supply chain best practices among each other and …Continue reading “Improving food systems in Iowa through industrial engineering”
Moses Kalyango traveled 8,000 miles to explore solutions to a centuries-old problem to take back to his native Uganda.
During the 2019 Pig Welfare Symposium, Suzanne Leonard presented the “Effects of one or two heat lamps on sow behavior and piglet performance in farrowing stalls.”
Iowa State University (ISU) broke ground on a new state-of-the-art facility this month, a facility that will help propel the University into answering a major need.
“If it takes energy and takes resources that folks don’t have to use or to burn, they’re not going to use it,” says Gretchen Mosher, a professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering at Iowa State University. “And it will just become one of those projects that the Western people come in and develop and then it sits there after they leave.”
A new screening tool developed by researchers at Iowa State University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture can dramatically reduce the time to detect strains of bacteria that cause a serious livestock disease and that impact the health of millions of people worldwide.
