Numerical Simulations Probe Mechanisms Behind Sand Dune Formation

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

After noticing how the construction of dams significantly alter the hydrodynamics of natural rivers and the resulting downstream riverbed evolution, researchers decided to apply numerical simulations to help determine what’s at play in the relationship of sediment motion and flow conditions.

Physicists' Study Demonstrates Silicon's Energy-Harvesting Power

University of Texas at Dallas

A University of Texas at Dallas physicist has teamed with Texas Instruments to design a better way for electronics to convert waste heat into reusable energy. Silicon in the form of nanoblades can harvest thermoelectric energy at a greatly increased rate while remaining mass-producible when combined with integrated circuits.
