New Conceptual Insights into Diesel Engine Fuel-Injection Processes

By combining advanced theory and high-fidelity large eddy simulation, Combustion Research Facility (CRF) researchers Rainer Dahms and Joe Oefelein (both in 8351) have provided new conceptual insights that promise to improve the understanding and prediction of fuel-injection processes in high-pressure diesel engine conditions. Their results, which experiments performed by CRF researchers Lyle Pickett and Julien […]

DOE Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability (OE) Energy Storage Safety Workshop

On February 17–18, 2014, Sandia National Laboratories and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory co-hosted the DOE OE Energy Storage Safety Workshop in Albuquerque, NM. This workshop’s goal was to address the need for validated energy-storage safety as identified in the DOE strategic plan for “Grid Energy Storage.” Thought leaders in the fields of deployment, operation, regulation, […]

Magnetically Stimulated Flow Patterns Offer Strategy for Heat-Transfer Problems

Sandia’s Jim Martin and Kyle Solis (both in the Nanoscale Sciences Dept.) have discovered how to harness magnetic fields to create vigorous, organized fluid flows in particle suspensions. The magnetically stimulated flows offer an alternative when heat transfer is difficult because they overcome natural convection limits. Martin and Solis even demonstrated a heat-transfer valve that […]

Sandian Elected as a Director of the Microscopy Society of America

Paul Kotula (in Sandia’s Materials Characterization and Performance Dept.) has been elect­ed as Physical Sciences Director of the Microscopy Society of America (MSA). This position has a three-year term on the society’s Executive Council. MSA is the world’s largest microscopy/micro­analysis society with over 4500 members covering the physical and life sciences. In addition to organizing […]

Yifeng Wang Selected Asian-American Engineer of the Year

Yifeng Wang (Radiological Consequence Management and Response Technologies Dept.) has been selected by the Chinese Institute of Engineers–USA to receive the Asian American Engineer of the Year (AAEOY) award for 2014. The award annually recognizes “American individuals of Asian descent who have made exceptional contributions to the field of Engineering, Science, and/or as a Corporate […]
