Researchers from the Georgia Tech Research Institute and Georgia Tech's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering are teaming up with Flowers Bakery in Villa Rica, GA to construct the world's perfect sandwich bun. A computer imaging system will be used to automate bun inspection and data generation. In the second phase, researchers will find new ways to combat heat and humidity disturbances found in an oven, which can reduce bun quality. For more information, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/3851-548.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
