Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professor Mario Trujillo confidently predicts that liquid fuels are not going away, but understanding how they’ll behave in fuel-injection systems will become increasingly complex. “There is probably going to be a wide range of new fuels with different physical properties, which means liquid fuel injection is going to change,” he says. “There’s [...]

Everything in physics is governed by equations, which can be solved to predict, for example, how grains of sand collide, how a tablecloth falls across a flat surface, or how water flows around obstacles. And as computing power becomes cheaper and more accessible to universities, the potential for research applications with large computers is skyrocketing. [...]
