Mechanical engineering faculty are active scholars who are currently researching in the following areas:
Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) technique has been used in computational studies of designing many MEMS (Microelectromechanical systems) devices. A micropump with a built-in microvalve was designed and studied by Dr. Yen-Lin Han using DSMC simulations. Employing rarefied gas phenomenon of thermal edge flow, this micropump is driven by heating up a thermal bimorph microvalve, which opens up the valve to allow the gas flow at the same time. Preliminary results have demonstrated the feasibility of this design.

Several undergraduate students contributed to this research through design and testing of several microalgae processing devices. Their work was presented at four different Algae Biomass Summits, the largest algae conference in the world, and at the 1st International Conference on Algal BBB, and is published in a leading journal. The research effort is lead by Dr. Shuman and Dr. Mason.
