Engineering technique could help clean up lingering radioactive waste

Sept. 18, 2017

Professor Roseanna Neupauer of CU Boulder and Professor David Mays of University of Colorado Denver have created a process called engineered injection and extraction, which has shown promising results in removing other contaminants. But uranium, which readily shifts between different oxidation states, has historically proven trickier.

Civil engineering researcher tapped for nuclear war study

Aug. 2, 2017

When a nuclear bomb goes off, it starts a chain of events whose effects reach far beyond the blast site. Over the next three years, Professor Yunping Xi of civil, environmental and architectural engineering will be involved in a study to quantify those effects in the event of a nuclear...

Study looks at black carbon in snow and ice around the world

June 30, 2017

The study co-authored by Professor Diane McKnight comparing dissolved black carbon deposition on ice and snow in ecosystems around the world (including Antarctica, the Arctic, and alpine regions of the Himalayas, Rockies, Andes, and Alps) shows that while concentrations vary widely, significant amounts can persist in both pristine and non-pristine areas of snow.

CU Engineering Magazine: The Architecture of Smell

June 8, 2017

How do chemical messages rising from a piece of rotting food signal a mouse to turn left to find it? How does the shape and movement of that mouse’s odor plume alert a hungry predator that it’s getting close? And precisely what goes on inside that predator’s brain when, in response to what it smells, it changes course? These are not the questions John Crimaldi, an engineer who specializes in fluid mechanics, imagined he would be asking someday.
