  • 3-D printing soft matter: UF discovery leads to new engineering discipline » Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering » University of Florida
    new Soft Matter Engineering Research Group which already has attracted collaborators across several disciplines The group s work also has attracted financial support from two international companies intrigued by the prospects for soft matter manufacturing In simple terms a hundred plus years that we ve built a foundation on in traditional mechanics is largely off the table with soft matter Hahn said It really is a whole new frontier of engineering Angelini said the printing medium is the key Printing a soft object in three dimensions had been out of the question because by its nature 3 D printing requires an object to solidify layer by layer with the printing tip depositing a material such as a plastic or metal which hardens to provide its own support A top heavy object like a jellyfish for instance would be too soft to print using traditional 3 D methods because the thin tentacles on the bottom would not support the bulk at the top Even if you printed the jellyfish upside down the thin flexible legs could never stay still in a fluid or stand upright Angelini however decided to try 3 D printing in a medium of densely packed microscopic hydrogel particles or granular gel for short The granular gel provides a stable water based environment that provides support for soft objects As the printing tip injects a fluid into the granular gel the gel traps the fluid in place allowing for deposition of subsequent layers of fluid without regard for support Angelini has used the new method to create numerous objects including a jellyfish and a hollow tubular knot which could not be printed outside the granular gel environment A 3d printer creates nesting dolls What if I could print you a structure that never solidified but it still held into place That s a new idea It s no longer about solidification it s more about placing things in space and leaving them where you put them They aren t going to move said Angelini who conducted the work using his National Science Foundation Early Career Development Award NSF s most prestigious award for promising junior faculty This level of control is the foundation of all manufacturing Sawyer pointing to one of the laboratory jellyfish adds Nobody in the world can make that jellyfish We make them everyday When we have soft matter manufacturing we can make things and then it is the realm of the engineer It s kind of like an industrial revolution It s a revolution that has attracted attention outside engineering Neurosurgery professor Frank Bova said he is excited about using the technology for education perhaps creating artificial brains and other phantom organs that medical students can use for hands on experience For years we have made models of bone and cartilage but we ve never been able to print soft tissue models Bova said With this process we can take a brain scan with a tumor and make tissue that looks like that of

  • New federal research funding makes Florida universities national hub for hurricane mitigation research » Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering » University of Florida
    Structures and Materials Laboratory are now among seven labs in the nation with the designation of Experimental Facilities under the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure NHERI program and the only two dedicated to studying extreme wind events The facilities will attract NSF funded researchers from throughout the nation who are working on wind engineering projects and are part of a network of scientists who study different aspects of natural hazards These awards highlight the groundbreaking work supported by Florida s public universities and underscore the value of multi disciplinary collaboration and investment in research that leads to economic development in our state and across the nation said Chancellor for the Florida State University System Marshall Criser III FIU s Wall of Wind is the nation s only full scale simulator capable of producing Category 5 hurricane 157 mph winds The 12 fan 8 400 horsepower system was inaugurated in 2012 on the 20 th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew s devastating blow to South Florida The Wall of Wind was developed with public and private funding over nearly 10 years and capped by a 7 5 million State of Florida Center of Excellence award in 2008 Since then the Center of Excellence has secured projects and awards totaling more than 9 million A team from FIU s Extreme Events Institute EEI and International Hurricane Research Center IHRC led by principal investigator and associate professor of civil and environmental engineering Arindam Gan Chowdhury was awarded a five year NHERI grant for nearly 4 1 million At FIU we are committed to solving problems for our community our state and the nation said FIU President Mark B Rosenberg This NSF designation tells us we are on the right track and inspires us to push ahead with research driven innovation to foster economic development and job creation UF will receive 3 6 million to give top experts across the country access to a one of a kind wind tunnel that tunes its wind field to test bridge and building models in terrains ranging from marine to terrestrial conditions Civil mechanical and electrical engineering students designed and built its Terraformer system which changes terrains on the fly Researchers will also use dynamic pressure loading actuators machines that replay realistic wind loads to test buildings The largest can replicate extreme wind loads from an EF5 tornado the strongest wind event on the planet The 4 million system was primarily funded by Henry Upjohn II through Michigan based Special Lite Inc Forrest Masters and his colleagues in the Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure Environment will use the grant to tackle an ambitious science plan that spans from promoting the use of robotics in construction to advancing computational methods to reduce the reliance on physical testing to understand how building products and systems respond to high wind loads With the grant UF also will support military veterans returning to school with emphasis on hiring those with service connected disabilities Masters and Chowdhury will serve on the leadership team
