Argonne and Convergent Science Join Forces for Better EnginesExternal link

The dynamics of an engine’s spark ignition are complex and often take months for scientists to simulate accurately. Now scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory can study these dynamics much more quickly with the help of a new software model. Researchers at Argonne are incorporating this new model into a computational fluid dynamics software package used by industry to simulate the highly complex processes in internal combustion engines.

Doctoral Student Creating "Scrubber" Textiles Discovers Neutron Analysis Techniques at ORNLExternal link

Yue Yuan, a second-year PhD student at NC State University’s Wilson College of Textiles, is working to create textiles that filter carbon dioxide (CO2) by using the latest scientific techniques in synthesis and imaging. Known as biocatalytic textiles, these materials could serve as sustainable scrubbers for CO2 capture by using enzymes trapped in bio-based polymers to catalyze the hydration of CO2.
