Ming-Chen Hsu, an assistant professor in mechanical engineering, was recently named a 2016 Web of Science Highly Cited Researcher by Thomson Reuters. Each year Thompson Reuters, a Toranto-based mass media company, compiles a list of the top 1 percent of the most cited researchers with papers indexed in the Web of Science Core Collection between 2004 …Continue reading “ME’s Hsu named a 2016 Web of Science Highly Cited Researcher”
Three thin leaflets blew open and blood blasted through an artificial heart valve, the center stream firing reds and yellows, the colors indicating a flow speed up to 125 centimeters per second. When the leaflets slammed shut, the flow turned to light blue eddies, indicating blood flow had nearly stopped.
New supercomputer models have come closer than ever to capturing the behavior of normal human heart valves and their replacements, according to recent studies by groups including scientists at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) at The University of Texas at Austin and the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Iowa State University.
