Clemson University chemical engineering professor Mark C. Thies has received a Marie Curie Fellowship for $142,000 to develop molecular models for advanced carbon materials that have the potential to be used in strong, yet lightweight transportation vehicles, wind turbines and more energy-efficient aircraft.
A gift from California-based Ozen Engineering Inc. to Clemson University is enabling researchers to create detailed computer models of the human body, which can be used to explore a variety of issues, from improving hip replacements to making more comfortable car seating.
Clemson University today joins nine other South Carolina higher education institutions in a research program that offers new hope for the thousands of individuals whose lives are threatened by organ failure and who wait in vain for too-few available transplant organs.
Clemson University associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering David Bruce will participate in a multi-university Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) funded with $12.5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The staycation may be last year’s news. A national survey conducted by Clemson University and Virginia Tech researchers shows that nearly half (49.4 percent) of Americans intend to make no concession to the poor economy when it comes to this summer’s travel plans.
Clemson scientist Stephen Klaine has been awarded two $400,000 EPA grants to study a subject that did not exist a decade ago. Klaine is part of the young field of nano-ecotoxicology: the investigation of the impact that nanoparticles have on the environment.
Clemson University research and technology projects will receive nearly $4 million from federal appropriations this year.
Industrial engineers Sandra Garrett of Clemson University and Barrett Caldwell of Purdue University have proposed a new system to warn of an impending pandemic by monitoring signals in human behavior.
Clemson University assistant professor of mechanical engineering Lin Ma has been awarded a National Science Foundation CAREER Award to study the science of turbulent combustion, the mode of combustion in many practical energy-generating devices.
The notion that highly engaged workers will continue to work tirelessly for organizations despite diminishing resources often isn’t true, according to Clemson University psychology professor Thomas Britt.
