New Method of Fluid Gating Has Implications for Drug Delivery, Power Generation and Other Uses
The movement of fluids through small capillaries and channels is crucial for processes ranging from blood flow through the brain to power generation and electronic cooling systems, but that movement often stops when the channel...
Hadi Ghasemi, Cullen Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, led the discovery of a new way to promote fluid flow through tiny channels and capillaries.

The movement of fluids through small capillaries and channels is crucial for processes ranging from blood flow through the brain to power generation and electronic cooling systems, but that movement often stops when the channel is smaller than 10 nanometers.

Haleh Ardebili, Bill D. Cook Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at UH, led work demonstrated that modeling based on the material nanoarchitecture can provide a more accurate understanding of ion diffusion and other properties in composite electrodes.

The explosion of mobile electronic devices, electric vehicles, drones and other technologies have driven demand for new lightweight materials that can provide the power to operate them. Researchers from the University of Houston and Texas A&M University have reported a structural supercapacitor electrode made from reduced graphene oxide and aramid nanofiber that is stronger and more versatile than conventional carbon-based electrodes.

Rodolfo Ostilla-Mónico, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at UH, said this work on energy fluctuations within fluids could lead to a better understanding of the behavior of bacteria and other organisms.

The Casimir Force is a well-known effect originating from the quantum fluctuation of electromagnetic fields in a vacuum. Now an international group of researchers have reported a counterpoint to that theory, adding to the understanding of energy fluctuations within fluids.

Mónico's work pulls order from chaos
For Dr. Rodolfo Ostilla Mónico, an assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering since Fall 2017, much of his work the past decade on turbulence has centered around a big question – can we find order in the chaos?
