Modeling Interactions Between Cities and Climate Across Scales

Cities now house more than half of humanity and consume the majority of energy resources. Urban areas alter climate and atmospheric chemistry in ways that can be important at regional to global scales. However, processes influencing climate, as well as the impacts of climate extremes, are often important at the scale of individual […]

Beautiful physics governs complex energy-matter interactions — ScienceDaily

A research team led by Tao Sun, associate professor of materials science and engineering at the University of Virginia, has made two discoveries that can expand additive manufacturing in aerospace and other industries that rely on strong metal parts. Additive manufacturing has contributed to aircraft production for years, as reported by the Association for Manufacturing […]
