In this transportation/railway engineering blog post we discuss ballast fouling, a rail performance issue that each year costs millions of dollars for repair and maintenance in tracks all over the world.
In this energy studies/aerodynamics/aerospace blog post, we discuss vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs), an underrated renewable energy solution that has recently drawn the interest of the research community.
In this water resources engineering/geomorphology blog post, we study the Bruun rule, a simple relationship between shoreline regression and sea-level rise that has been a mainstay in coastal science for over half a century.
In this fluid mechanics/transport phenomena/surface chemistry blog post, we discuss basic aspects of electroosmotic flow. Topics covered include electric double layer, Poisson-Boltzmann equation, and non-Newtonian EO flow.
