This breakthrough book brings together in one place the information necessary to develop the high energy density combustion-based power sources that will enable many of these devices to realize their full potentials.
“Analytical Theory of Turbulence,” a new book by Sin-I Cheng, MAE Professor Emeritus, has just been published (posthumously) by Lulu Editions. The book is a culmination of Professor Cheng’s contributions to fluid mechanics and turbulence research, almost all of it done at Princeton where started as a faculty member in 1952.
Lex Smits will be the next Editor-in-Chief of the AIAA Journal. He will assume this leadership position on January 12, 2015. Congratulations Lex!
Professor Ju's lab receives Distinguished Paper Award from the 35th International Symposium on Combustion
The Distinguished Paper Award in the Laminar Flames Colloquium of the 35th International Symposium on Combustion (2015) was awarded to “Self-sustaining n-heptane cool diffusion flames activated by ozone” by Won, S. H., Jiang, B., Diévart, P., Sohn, C. H., & Ju, Y. Congratulations!
Professor Emily Carter has been named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, which honors academic inventors whose inventions have made a tangible impact on society.
Have you ever noticed that it's easier to walk around without spilling a foamy beer versus walking around with a regular cup of coffee? Have you ever wondered why?
We are pleased to announce that Al Gaillard will be joining MAE as Machine Shop Associate on January 5, 2015.
We are pleased to announce that Jeffrey (Jeff) Addo will be joining MAE as Technical Support Specialist on January 5, 2015.
After several years of creating these photographic prints, Mr. Button was curious about the underlying science of what was going on. Mr. Button typed "fluid mechanics" and "art" into Google. Up popped a list of search results that included Dr. Howard Stone.
Naomi Leonard receives Glenn L. Martin Medal from the University of Maryland A. James Clark School of Engineering
Alex Glaser named to an elite list of ‘Global Thinkers’ along with collaborators Robert Goldston and Boaz Barak.
Prof. Philip Holmes is an internationally prominent mathematician and engineer whose fundamental contributions to the theory and applications of nonlinear dynamical systems span solid and fluid mechanics, animal locomotion, neuroscience, and cognition.
Professor Chung K. Law delivered a plenary lecture entitled “Advancing combustion as a transdisciplinary thermal science.”
It will take months for investigators to determine the root cause of last week's fatal crash of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo rocket plane — but whatever the cause, the improper configuration of the plane's wing-feathering mechanism would have been enough to result in the plane's catastrophic breakup, according to Princeton engineering professor, Robert Stengel.
3-D printing has been touted as the most amazing thing to happen to manufacturing since the assembly line. The idea is that, someday, every home could be a mini-factory, downloading CAD templates online and printing off eyeglasses, coffee mugs, shoes, and whatever else a household might need. The problem is that right now most 3-D printers can only print the equivalent of plastic toys—plus a few guns, pizzas, and body parts here and there.
