Unexpected results are among the things that makes it so interesting to be a chemist. You can never be completely sure what is the result of a reaction, even though I have seen this specific experiment many times before. Chemistry can become an art form. You can catch a skyline in a small glass.
There are a number of available low-carbon technologies to generate electricity. But are they really better than fossil fuels and nuclear power?
Many users choose a glass design after testing 30 samples. Possibly worrying fact: you may need thousands of tests to get statistically trustworthy results.
Dynamic positioning (DP) of ships has a 55 years industrial history, and in 2015 it was awarded by the readers of “Teknisk Ukeblad” as the most significant engineering achievement in Norway after World War 2. The origin of this industrial adventure in Norway is from NTNU. In the DP-Lab the
Do you feel overwhelmed by the possibilities you have and expectations you meet as a PhD candidate? You are not alone. And the feeling might affect you more than you think. Two PhD candidates tell about their experiences with burning out during their PhDs and and what steps they took to overcome it.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) to remove CO2 is becoming an important technology to combat climate change. But how to get rid of the waste from the removal process? Bacteria might be the answer
Believe me or not one of the way to extend life comes out of wastewater! There are groups of engineer around the world who try to recover the most valuable resource and energy out of wastewater. At civil and environmental engineering department, we have started ‘RECOVER’ project to recover resources
Friction is important in everyday life, but because it is everywhere we often take it completely for granted. Every time you stand still, walk, or hold an object, friction helps you to control movements. At the same time, the friction of moving parts in machines, and the associated wear, costs modern societies an enormous amount of energy and materials.
Have you ever listened to a presentation on a topic you really like, but still you got lost halfway? Or have you ever felt like an imposter at a conference, because you were not even able to even understand the introduction? Maybe it was not you; maybe we need to rethink the way presentations are given.
