Using the technology behind origami and kirigami manufacturing, researchers from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Department of Visualization at Texas A&M University want to give manufacturers the ability to design and customize their own products.
A team of Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) researchers has been selected for a potential award by NASA to lead research into commercially viable civil supersonic transport aircraft that meet noise and efficiency requirements for overland flight. Put simply, their research is on designing an aircraft that can modify its shape in real time in order to optimize for fuel efficiency or quiet flight as the flight phase and conditions change. The team is one of five transformative system-level aviation innovations that NASA has selected as part of the NASA Aeronautics’ University Leadership Initiative (ULI.)
M. Katherine Banks, vice chancellor and dean of engineering, has appointed Dr. Richard Miles, Dr. Thomas Overbye and Dr. Zhijian “ZJ” Pei Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Distinguished Research Professors. Pei’s appointment was effective Aug. 27, 2016, Overbye’s was effective Jan. 1 and Miles’s was effective Feb. 15.
Dr. Alan Palazzolo, TEES Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University, recently published a book, Vibration Theory and Applications with Finite Elements and Active Vibration Control.
Seven faculty members in the Dwight Look College of Engineering at Texas A&M University have been recognized by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) as TEES Select Young Faculty. The award recognizes outstanding young faculty members who have demonstrated their talents for research.
Dr. Dennis O'Neal, TEES deputy director and a researcher in the Mechanical Engineering Division, has been selected to receive two awards from the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) for a paper published in 2011.
Through a program known as the Continuous Commissioning® process, the Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL), a center within the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), has worked to produce more than $100 million in savings in more than 300 buildings throughout Texas, the United States and the World.
