A team of researchers from Lamar University in Texas, led by assistant professor Dr. Keivan Davami, recently developed a self-healing material using advanced SLA 3D printing technology, which has all kinds of applications, from fixing shoe soles and cell phone screens to cartilage.
A team of undergraduate engineers at UC San Diego has discovered a method that could make materials more resilient against massive shocks such as earthquakes or explosions. The students, conducting research in the structural engineering lab of Professor Veronica Eliasson, used a shock tube to generate powerful explosions within the tube—at Mach 1.2 to be exact, meaning faster than the speed of sound. They then used an ultra high-speed camera to capture and analyze how materials with certain patt​
Students who transfer to Appalachian State University find support programs tailored to promote their success — including opportunities to connect with Faculty Transfer Mentors — through the university’s Office of Transfer Services.
Shahin Saberi is a student from Indiana University-Bloomington whose undergraduate research experience has led him along a path that included serving as co-editor-in-chief of the Indiana University Journal of Undergraduate Research.
