FLOW researchers Nitesh Mittal, Krishne Gowda, Christophe Brouzet, Fredrik Lundell and Daniel Söderberg, together with colleagues from University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, DESY (Germany) and Wallenberg Wood Science Center at KTH, have successfully managed to fabricate bio-fibers with mechanical properties superior to known natural or man-made bio-based materials.
The paper ‘Warm summers during the Younger Dryas cold reversal’ by Schenk, Väliranta, Muschitiello, Tarasov, Heikkilä, Björck, Brandefelt, Johansson, Näslund and Wohlfarth has been published in Nature Communications.
Philipp Schlatter has been elected as the chair of this committee för the years 2018-2020. SNAC has the task to prepare the calls for applications, prioritize applications and allocate SNIC resources, based on scientific quality, scientific need and technical feasibility of using the requested resources efficiently.
Former FLOW PhD student Nicolò Fabbiane has won the ERCOFTAC da Vinci Prize for his PhD thesis ’Transition delay in boundary-layer flows via reactive control'. Nicolò was one of the five finalist who presented their research works at the recent ERCOFTAC meeting in Delft.
Outi Tammisola and Luca Brandt have been awarded a Marie Curie RISE grant on the proposal Control of Turbulent Friction Force (CTFF). The KTH part of the proposal is to study smart surfaces for drag reduction. The funding is 500k € for the consortium and it is to be used for mobility of researchers and training.
The Swedish technical newspaper, NyTeknik, has dedicated an article to the research of Docent Christophe Duwig. The topic is new technologies for harvesting waste heat and pressure in a Fuel Cell based power-train. The academic focus is on complex thermodynamic effects in fluid flows with expansion.
The paper ‘Ultrastrong and Bioactive Nanostructured Bio-Based Composites’ by Nitesh Mittal, Ronnie Jansson, Mona Widhe, Tobias Benselfelt, Karl Håkansson, Fredrik Lundell, My Hedhammar and Daniel Söderberg has been published in ACS Nano, the second highest ranked journal in the area of Nanotechnology and top ten in the area of Material Science. The research is a collaboration between scientists from Linné FLOW Centre, Wallenberg Wood Science Center, the School of Biotechnology at KTH and RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden).
