Engineering Students Participate in 2015 Summer Research Symposium

Nearly 200 undergraduates gathered in Sayles Hall on August 6 and 7 to present the results of their research at the annual Summer Research Symposium sponsored by the Office of the Dean of the College. More than 20 of the posters were from undergraduate researchers from the School of Engineering or were conducted under the guidance of engineering faculty members. Many of the projects are supported by Brown’s Karen T. Romer Undergraduate Teaching and Research Awards (UTRAs).

Nanowires highly ‘anelastic,’ research shows

At the nanoscale, familiar materials often take on unexpected properties. Researchers from Brown and NC State have shown that zinc oxide nanowires are highly anelastic, meaning they return to shape slowly after being bent, rather than snapping right back. Anelastic materials are good at dissipating of kinetic energy. This new finding suggest nanowires could be useful in absorbing shocks and vibrations.
