Dr. Hadi Nasrabadi, assistant professor in the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering, is working in collaboration with professors in the chemical and mechanical engineering departments at Texas A&M University to better explain and predict hydrocarbon phase behavior in the nanometric spaces of unconventional reservoirs.
Houston-based Arovia, creators of the Spontaneous Pop-Up Display (SPUD) a collapsible portable desktop display, was awarded $50,000 as the winner of the 2018 Texas A&M New Ventures Competition hosted by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES).
Credited with acquiring the legislative funding needed for The Texas A&M University System’s Center for Infrastructure Renewal (CIR), Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick was the special guest for the center’s ribbon-cutting ceremony held on the RELLIS Campus April 11.
Dr. James E. Hubbard, Jr. has joined the faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University as a Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Research Distinguished Professor.
Dr. Sam Mannan, executive director of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station's (TEES) Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center and Regents Professor in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been appointed to serve on the Department of Energy's (DOE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technical Advisory Committee (HTAC).
Texas A&M Engineering is poised to become a national leader in advanced manufacturing. Helping cement that growing reputation, the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) has joined America Makes, the country’s leading collaborative partner in additive manufacturing and 3-D printing technology research, commercialization and education.
Texas A&M University was awarded a $4.4 million grant from the National Science Foundation CyberCorps Scholarships for Service (SFS) program, the Texas A&M Cybersecurity Center will administer the Cyber Leader-Scholars Program in partnership with Houston Community College.
Dr. Luis San Andrés, Mast-Childs Chair in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M, works on multiple projects in the Turbomachinery Laboratory. His work in rotordynamics includes novel squeeze film dampers, which help reduce vibrations within a jet engine, creating more reliable equipment that is safer and more comfortable to the ears of passengers. The long-term project has been funded by Pratt & Whitney Engines since 2008.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) is leading a research team working to develop a new field laboratory in the hydrocarbon-producing geological formation known as the Eagle Ford Shale. The team, along with WildHorse Resource Development Corporation (WRD), which has been awarded an $8 million grant from the Department of Energy (DOE) for research and development of unconventional oil and natural gas recovery, will test next-generation monitoring solutions for hydraulic fracturing and enhanced oil recovery.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Clean Energy Incubator and its collaborators were among the eight projects and 19 organizations awarded more than $1 million to address gaps in clean-energy technology development and commercialization. The Wells Fargo Innovations Incubator (IN2) Channel Partner Awards Program is designed to foster the development of a robust cleantech ecosystem by funding innovative incubators, accelerators and universities, and promoting a collaborative network of knowledge sharing.
