A research team led by Purdue Polytechnic’s Jiansong Zhang created a new method to help experts in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry simplify development of the building information modeling (BIM) software they use.
Gozdem Kilaz and Petr Vozka are working in the Fuel Laboratory of Renewable Energy (FLORE) to optimize a new chemical conversion process to transform plastic waste into useful products.
Purdue Polytechnic’s digital manufacturing and design research laboratory, once known as the Product Lifecycle Management Center, is changing its name to the Digital Enterprise Center.
Research assistants in Purdue Polytechnic displayed research projects at the Realizing the Digital Enterprise Graduate Student Poster Session.
The liquid metal cyborg in ”Terminator 2” inspired Richard Voyles and a team of researchers to work toward developing a ”smart product printer” that combines the printing of a structure with the printing of electronics, sensing and other functions.
Daniel Leon-Salas, associate professor in Purdue Polytechnic’s School of Engineering Technology, led a research team that has patented a way to transmit power and information between IoT devices using only light.
Blueavion f1, an airport sensor system co-developed by John Mott, associate professor of aviation technology, is now available commercially. The product was tested at the Purdue University Airport.
A knowledge gap in the development of alternative aviation fuels led to the creation of the Fuel Laboratory of Renewable Energy (FLORE), a new interdisciplinary research lab in Purdue’s Potter Engineering Center directed by Gozdem Kilaz, assistant professor of engineering technology.
Victor Chen, assistant professor of computer graphics technology, specializes in information visualization. He converts abstract data into images which are complex yet understandable. Each graphic Chen creates is as individual as its underlying data, with the resulting images resembling elegant, mechanical snowflakes.
Petr Vozka, a graduate student in the School of Engineering Technology, hopes to make the certification process for alternative fuels easier by constructing bridges between fuel chemistry and performance.
