Trishelle Copeland-Johnson is a Ph.D. student in materials science and engineering (MSE). She is currently researching the explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant in 2011, and she recently was awarded the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) Fellowship.
Driving along the highway, most people have seen parts of the U.S. power grid in the form of tall, metal towers carrying power lines. These power lines are transmitting much of the electricity we use daily to power microwaves, refrigerators, washers, dryers and more. But with this vast amount of electricity and power, many components … Continue reading ECpE professors receive $1 million NSF grant for data-driven vision of future power grids
During an era before the internet, Cary Pint remembers building ham radio antennae and designing electrical systems that allowed the young broadcaster to communicate with people all over the world. Pint, who will join the mechanical engineering (ME) faculty at Iowa State University for the spring 2020 semester, said that working on this radio equipment … Continue reading Incoming ME professor brings energy research program to Iowa State
