Washington State University researchers have made a key advance in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) that could make the highly energy-efficient and low-polluting technology a more viable alternative to gasoline combustion engines for powering cars. Led by PhD graduate Qusay Bkour and Professor Su Ha in the Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering […]

University of Washington researchers are at work on a simpler fuel efficient rocket engine that could be cheaper and enable lighter spacecraft. The researchers have developed a mathematical model that describes how rotating detonation engines work. It takes a lot of fuel to launch something into space. Sending NASA’s Space Shuttle into orbit required more […]

University of Delaware (UD) researchers have identified ammonia as a source for engineering fuel cells that can provide a cheap and powerful energy source for fueling cars, trucks and buses with a reduced carbon footprint. The researchers at UD are working on technology to make fuel cells cheaper and more powerful so that fuel cell […]

Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA) scientists have developed an innovative, electrohydraulically actuated valve train for internal combustion engines, that enables completely free adjustment of stroke and timing, while at the same time being robust and cost effective. This valve train was mounted on a serial production engine and has been running […]

Researchers at Kyushu University in Japan can now provide new insights into the reactions occurring in solid-oxide fuel cells. By using realistic simulations with atomic-scale models of the electrode active site based on microscope observations, instead of the simplified and idealized atomic structures employed in previous studies, a better understanding of how the structures in […]
