Article about Professor Kinsey's recent research in the Campus Journal!

Research Profile: Brad Kinsey, Testing the Mettle of Metals

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

By Sonia Scherr

Do you drive a car? Drink out of soda cans? Use a washing machine? Travel by plane?

If so, Brad Kinsey’s research could have an impact on your daily activities. He studies how to better predict failure in sheet metal, the thin metal skin used in products ranging from retro Coca-Cola Zero bottles to the ultra-modern Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Kinsey’s research has the potential to improve manufacturing processes

Dr. Charles (Charlie) Taft, Professor Emeritus, has been elected to Fellow status in ASME

Congratulations to Dr. Charles (Charlie) Taft, Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering, who was recently elected to Fellow status in The American Society of Mechanical Engineers with the following citation: Prof. Taft made seminal contributions in non-linear controls, stepper motors and fluidics.  He established a paradigm for collegial treatment of students in dynamic systems, fluid, electromechanical and discontinuous control and instrumentation courses he developed.  His award-winning solutions of complex problems such as ground-breaking modelling of train air braking systems won him the ASME Rail Transportation Award (1980).  His permanent magnet stepper motors modelling won him the IEEE IECI best paper award (1975).  His fluid dynamics expertise is exemplified by fluidics patents, DARPA research on ship steering, and his skiing passion led to development of snow cover enhancement polyhedrons using prevailing winds.  He authored 16 refereed papers, three books and 9 Patents.

News article on UNH Today about Professor Foster's work with a middle school teacher from Oyster River!


Middle Schoolers Get Excited About Engineering—From 3,500 Miles Away

Local Teacher and UNH Professor Collaborate in the Netherlands

With its high-tech instruments, esoteric terms, and complex equations, engineering research conducted by UNH faculty is far removed from the basic learning that occurs in a middle-school classroom.

Or is it? This summer, students at Oyster River Middle School in Durham got a close-up look at real-world research when their intern, Berkley Sadana, accompanied a UNH professor on a trip to the Netherlands to study how waves cause beach erosion. During her 10 days at the Delta Flume—a wave simulator that’s longer than two football fields placed end-to-end—Sadana interacted with students via daily blog entries and several on-site Skype sessions.

Congratulations to the UNH Lunabotics Team!!

Congrats to the UNH Lunabots team!! Here are the competition results from this year’s Lunabotics Competition in Florida;  they  came in 13th out of 55 teams in the overall competition! They were also able to qualify for the mining category by being one of 17 teams to actually mine the simulant, and we believe that they came in 9th in the mining category. (They mined a total of 31.8kg.)
