Story tips from the Department of Energys Oak Ridge National Laboratory, March 2001

PHYSICS Looking for a break . . .
While Greg Madduxs curveball might break 19 inches at Atlantas Turner Field, conditions at Denvers Coors Field can cut the amount of break by 10 percent, according to some groundbreaking research performed at ORNL. The fluid mechanics research, which aims to precisely quantify the interaction between solids and fluids, uses the labs computer to run an algorithm developed by an ORNL researcher that takes into account barometric pressure, humidity and temperature. In the baseball example, two inches may not seem like a lot, but in a game of inches, that and the fact the ball travels farther in Denver are wreaking havoc on finesse pitchers like Maddux. Researchers expect this work to apply to many challenges in physics, including problems in aerodynamics and nanoscale devices. They also see applications in the modeling of submarines.

ENGINEERING Paying dividends for businesses . . .
ORNL researchers are saving key industries of the future hundreds of thousands of dollars in energy costs with a process that starts by simply taking a look around. The DOE program, called BestPractices, encourages industries to examine their most energy-intensive plant utility systems and make improvements to increase energy efficiency. Companies that participate in the program get a visit from BestPractices experts like Mitch Olszewski of ORNL who show the firm how to assess their utility systems using tools and techniques developed at ORNL and other DOE laboratories. Already, the program has saved dozens of firms several hundred thousand dollars. [Contact: Mitch Olszewski]

MEDICAL - The digital pig . . .
Like the Visible Man and Visible Woman, the Digital Pig could serve as an important model in cardiovascular and pulmonary studies as well as other areas of biomedical research. Researchers at ORNL, Walter Reed Army Institute Research and the University of South Florida envision the di
