As concerns of proliferation, the spread of nuclear weapons development, grows among hostile foreign powers, researchers at Texas A&M University are improving technologies that help monitor nuclear materials across the globe.
A Texas A&M University System-led consortium of industry, government partners and universities has been awarded a prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center (ERC) on Precise Advanced Technologies and Health Systems for Underserved Populations (PATHS-UP), with the goal of addressing the grand challenge of overcoming the human and economic burden of diabetes and heart disease in underserved communities.
Before Hurricane Harvey even made landfall, Texas A&M Engineering has been helping Texans to prepare, respond and now, rebuild.
Here are just a few of the ways that Texas A&M Engineering students, faculty and staff have sprung into action.These stories, and more from across The Texas A&M University System, are included in Texas A&M’s 100 Stories (and counting) of Selfless Service.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s Turbomachinery Laboratory, host of TPS, has partnered with New Way Air Bearings to launch #TPSHelpsHouston, a fundraising campaign to provide relief to Houston area residents affected by Hurricane Harvey.
A recent study has added a new dimension to the controversial decision to inject large amounts of chemical dispersants immediately above the crippled oil well at the seafloor during the Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010. The dispersants may have significantly reduced the amount of harmful gases in the air at the sea surface—reducing health risks for emergency responders and allowing them to keep working to stop the uncontrolled spill and clean up the spilled oil sooner.
TEES' Global Petroleum Research Institute will host a two-day short course Sept. 16-19 in Austin, TX that can help breweries that are new to to the craft get started or provide tips to improve their product.
Texas A&M University researchers have developed an intelligent model that can predict a potential vulnerability to utility assets and present a map of where and when a possible outage may occur. The predictive feature allows the trees in the most critical areas with the highest risk to be trimmed first.
Joseph (Joe) T. Martinez, associate director, senior research engineer and project manager for Continuous Commissioning® (CC®) in the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s (TEES) Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL), received the $20 million Savings Recognition Award on behalf of ESL/TEES from the Alamo Colleges District for achieving cumulative energy savings of $20 million for the five-college district.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Smart Grid Center is part of a United States team that will use a $7.5 million Department of Energy (DOE) grant to help advance India’s power grid to ensure access to affordable and reliable energy.
Dr. Jonathan Burns, an associate research scientist with the Nuclear Security Science and Policy Institute (NSSPI), was recently awarded a research and development award of nearly $400,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy as part of their Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP)
