Transpiration Cooling of Hypersonic Vehicles

OTI’s Hassan Saad Ifti presented his paper on “flow characterisation of porous UHTCs (Ultra-High-Temperature-Ceramics) for transpiration cooling of hypersonic vehicles” at the ’22nd AIAA International Space Planes and Hypersonic Systems and Technologies Conference’ within the AIAA SPACE Forum 2018. This innovative work is the first of its kind. Hassan highlighted work on permeability measurements of UHTC samples, [...]

World’s first fluid-shaping technology for biomedicine

Despite improvements in our ability to manipulate ever-smaller volumes using microfluidics, the technology remains inaccessible to many biologists as it often requires complex manufacturing facilities (such as soft lithography) and uses materials foreign to cell biology (such as polydimethylsiloxane). Scientists at the University of Oxford – in the Department of Engineering Science and The Dunn [...]
