Food production systems could become more environmentally sustainable and K-12 students could become more educated about it as part of a new research project. A team of Iowa State University researchers, led by mechanical engineering (ME) associate professor Mark Mba-Wright, recently received a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for a research project … Continue reading ISU researchers to study blockchain technology to improve sustainability in food markets
Flexible circuits, sensors, and low power transistors could become more feasible with the help of a research grant recently awarded to a mechanical engineering professor. Xinwei Wang, a professor of mechanical engineering, recently received a $337,730 grant from the National Science Foundation’s Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems. The project, “Conjugated Energy Transport … Continue reading ME research project to examine two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides
Mechanical engineering professor Abhijit Chandra has received a prestigious award from a top organization in his field. Earlier this month, Chandra received the Excellence in Mechanics Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ (ASME) Electronic and Photonic Packaging Division.

Namrata Vaswani, professor of electrical and computer engineering, Paul Durbin, professor of aerospace engineering, and Baskar Ganapathysubramanian, professor of mechanical engineering, have been appointed to Joseph and Elizabeth Anderlik Professorships in Engineering.
“I do nothing by myself. I credit the engineering program at Iowa State for demanding teamwork early in my academic career, which is a critical profession skill regardless of where your career takes you.”
Mechanical failures in agricultural and industrial machinery could become easier to predict with the help of a new grant awarded to a team of Iowa State University researchers. Chao Hu, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, and his research team have received a $239,509 award from the NSF Partnerships for Innovation (PFI) program for a … Continue reading CoE researchers to develop safer, more reliable machines with new grant
“Team PrISUm served as the foundation for everything I know today, whether that be collaborating with team members, principles of project management, being comfortable with no clear answer and taking risks,” said Cylone Engineer Dylan Neal (’18 mech engr).
Focus. Focus on what you want and go for it. These are the first two lines of Jocelyn Jackson’s personal mission statement. And as the new national chair for the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) as of May 1, focus is Jackson’s top priority. When it comes to NSBE, Jackson treats focus as an acronym … Continue reading Strength in numbers: New national chair leading NSBE with purpose
Simulation of fluid moving through a valve Simulation of heart movement Simulation of fluid moving through heart valves Adarsh Krishnamurthy and Ming-Chen Hsu got to talking about their research interests – Krishnamurthy works in simulating cardiac mechanics and Hsu in simulating valve dynamics – when they had an idea. “He has the heart without the valve, … Continue reading In a heartbeat: Machine learning speeds up heart-valve simulations
