Happy Birthday, Claude Shannon
Claude Shannon ushered in a new age of communications technology, contributing ideas about testing digital circuits, coding messages in binary, and programming artificial intelligence.
Analyzing Wastewater Contaminant Removal in a Secondary Clarifier
1 potential way to ensure sustainable water access is by developing safe and efficient wastewater clarifiers. Engineers can use fluid flow simulation to develop optimized clarifier systems.
Happy Birthday, Leonhard Euler
His last name is pronounced “oiler” and he is considered one of the greatest mathematical scientists of all time. Learn about the life and work of Leonhard Euler.
Happy Birthday, Pierre-Simon Laplace
Pierre-Simon Laplace contributed to celestial mechanics and helped develop an equation for pressure across a curved surface. He also had his demons. The Laplace demon thought experiment, that is.
Topology Optimization of a Magnetic Circuit for Loudspeakers
By optimizing the topology of loudspeaker components, such as magnetic circuits, we can develop speaker designs that are portable, lightweight, and high quality.
Analyzing Triaxial Testing Methods for Geomechanics
Triaxial testing of soil is important when determining the structural stability of a tunnel, dam, or building. Geomechanics simulation can help ensure that triaxial testing methods are up to par.
Happy Birthday, Frances Spence
Frances Spence worked on the first digital computer, Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC), during WWII. Learn more about her dedication to computer programming and STEM.
Analyzing Vehicle Suspension with Multibody Dynamics Modeling
