Combating Wear and Tear

CollagenStrands.png

University of Utah bioengineering researchers have discovered that damage to collagen, the main building block of all human tissue, can occur much earlier at a molecular level from too much physical stress. This could be helpful for some who want to know earlier if they are developing diseases such as arthritis or for athletes whose bodies are taking a toll.

A New Model for Capillary Rise in Nano-Channels Offers Insights Into Improved Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking)

APL-Shen-capillary2.jpg

With fracking, scientists have calculated the expected level of capillary rise with the Lucas-Washburn equation, a mathematical model whose earliest parameters were first devised nearly a century ago. The challenge, however, is that that the equation has not been completely accurate in predicting the actual rise observed in nano-capillary laboratory experiments. Researchers studying this deviation describe their findings this week in the journal Applied Physics Letters.

NUS Engineering Team Develops Novel Nanofibre Solution for Clean, Fresh Air

A research team from the National University of Singapore has successfully concocted a novel nanofibre solution that creates thin, see-through air filters that can remove up to 90 per cent of PM2.5 particles and achieve high air flow of 2.5 times better than conventional air filters.
