Basic motion measuring technology may be alternative to more expensive testing procedures

...ter (DLW), composed of special forms (isotopes) of hydrogen and oxygen, has been used in previous studies to estimate the energy expenditure of various military personnel doing their jobs in a variety of places. The results from these tests, have been accepted as highly accurate, but expensive. The Study A ...

Urbana chemist wins national award for contributions to cleaner fuels

... transfer it away from the raw fossil fuel to form hydrogen sulfide, a gas. That done, the catalyst is ready for another load. Once you understand exactly how they work, you can make them better. The fuels we use have to keep getting cleaner, and the resources themselves are getting dirtier, he added. Rauchfu...
