The Federal Aviation Administration recognized two teams from a University of Missouri College of Engineering class for their 2013 FAA Design Competition for Universities projects.
In an effort to increase motorist safety and traffic-flow efficiency, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) has implemented some novel intersection treatments on the state’s roadways. Two of these designs have been selected for implementation on roadways in or near Columbia.
Ramp meters are one way traffic engineers can control the flow of merging traffic from entrance ramps on highways. Assistant Professor Praveen Edara recently presented the results from his research on temporary ramp meters.
Several on the University of Missouri College of Engineering faculty are “doing,” having launched businesses based on their research breakthroughs. What follows is an examination of how faculty launch start-up ventures and a look at a handful of some of engineering’s adventurous risk-takers’ efforts, in various stages of development.
Researchers in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department have devised a system that creates a toroidal- (or ring-) shaped plasma emission in open atmosphere.
Michaela Becchi, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Missouri, received nearly $500,000 for research on data-intensive uses for GPU clusters.
A biological professor and his team of researchers have been examining the use of supercritical water to process biomass and other wastes as part of a collaborative project with Duke University.
Serendipity and X-rays joined forces for an unexpected consequence and an exciting discovery in the lab of Scott Kovaleski, an MU associate professor of electrical and computer engineering and interim department chair.
A chemical engineering assistant professor has made the mechanical properties of bones puzzle the cornerstone of his research program. His ultimate goal is to create custom-made bone.
