Engineering Students Sweep NC State’s First 3 Minute Thesis
Engineering students took all three prizes Oct. 28 in the first-ever 3 Minute Thesis competition at NC State University. The international competition challenges students to describe their dissertation research in 3 minutes, using just one slide.
Elastic Drug Delivery Technology Releases Drugs When Stretched
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed a drug delivery technology that consists of an elastic patch that can be applied to the skin and will release drugs whenever the patch is stretched.
Study Finds Metal Foams Capable of Shielding X-rays, Gamma Rays, Neutron Radiation
Research from North Carolina State University shows that lightweight composite metal foams are effective at blocking X-rays, gamma rays and neutron radiation, and are capable of absorbing the energy of high impact collisions. The finding means the metal foams hold promise for use in nuclear safety, space exploration and medical technology applications.
Distributed Technique for Power ‘Scheduling’ Advances Smart Grid Concept
NC State graduate students Navid Rahbari-Asr and Yuan Zhang are co-authors of a paper about a new technique for “scheduling” energy in electric grids that moves away from centralized management by tapping into the distributed computing power of energy devices.
