Gas turbines: essential for the transition to renewable energy sources
Gas turbines are best known as the jet engines that power aircraft. But they also are the work horses of large power plants generating electricity for our industry and homes.
Control theory in a selfish world
Based on the mathematical principles of control theory, robots and vehicles have been taught to function autonomously for decades. Grammatico: “Thanks to today’s computational capabilities, we now have local intelligent systems that can fully operate by themselves. But what happens if autonomous systems are put together and need to work together?”
Fluid mechanics for the future
Fluid mechanics are integral to many areas of our everyday life including sport, medicine, climate change and environmental issues as well as the more traditional fields of transport, energy and building infrastructure.
Hydrogen as the key to a sustainable shipping sector
Sustainability targets for the transport sector are not limited to only road transport. The shipping industry has decided to explore that issue now too.
Surgical tool inspired by parasitoid wasp
Surgeons will find it easier to operate with a flexible, ultra-thin and steerable needle. Indeed, many medical applications have a need for this new type of needle, for example during deep medical interventions in the spinal cord.
