Mechanical engineering researchers at Iowa State University are studying ways they can use acoustic sound waves to improve the efficiency of extracting oil from rocks. The project is led by Jaime J. Juárez, assistant professor of mechanical engineering (ME), with additional support from Michael Olsen, professor of ME. The project is supported with a more …Continue reading “Engineers aim to improve oil extraction using acoustic sound waves”
Luke Roling’s chemical engineering research laboratory does not feature the clink of glass beakers, but rather the hum of computer banks, and with them, the promise of improving the performance of chemical engineering processes. “Atomic-scale computer simulations are helping us understand how deactivation occurs in the chemical industry — and are bringing us one step …Continue reading “Grant will assist CBE’s Roling with computer-enhanced petroleum research”
A mechanical engineering alum was recently recognized by the world’s largest petroleum engineering professional society. Sadanand D. Joshi (PhDME’78) is the 2018 recipient of the Society of Petroleum Engineering‘s (SPE) John Franklin Carll Award for distinguished professionals. As a doctoral student at Iowa State, Joshi studied under longtime ME Professor Art Bergles. After completing his PhD …Continue reading “ME alum Joshi receives distinguished professional award”
