Computational Body Models: The New Generation of Crash Test Dummies

07-17BodyModelsI.jpg

Computerized models have not replaced crash dummies in assessing the protective properties of motor vehicles, military equipment and other products. But virtual figures offer many advantages over mechanical manikins and are becoming more widely used in injury biomechanics and other fields.

College Grad's Return Flight From Thailand Lands Her in the Hospital

Julie Park graduated this year from Rowan University, but she almost didn’t make it to graduation. Last January, she sprained her ankle. A week later, she flew from her South Jersey home to Thailand for vacation. Although her ankle hurt during the trip, she didn’t think it merited going to a hospital while out of the country. What she didn’t realize at the time was that such indecision could have cost her life.

Researchers ‘Count Cars’ – Literally – to Find a Better Way to Control Heavy Traffic

There’s “Counting Crows,” counting sheep, counting blessings and now researchers at FAU have their own version of “counting cars” – literally – in an attempt to improve traffic flow on our nation’s overcrowded roads. And with more than 263 million registered passenger vehicles in the U.S. and more than 14 million registered vehicles in Florida alone, this is no small feat.

Arkansas Professor Receives $500k to Improve Transportation Fuel Cells

Tansel-Karabacak.jpg

A University of Arkansas at Little Rock professor has received $500,000 to develop high-performance, cost-effective transportation fuel cells. Dr. Tansel Karabacak, professor of physics and astronomy at UA Little Rock, received $400,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy. UA Little Rock will provide $100,000 in matching funds. The main goal of the research is to produce transportation fuel cells that cost less, last longer, and provide more power.
