Distributive Justice

DistributiveJustice_RockyFlats_1square

Distributive Justice – Education Students explore a variety of possible principles of distributive justice (how to fairly distribute societal benefits and burdens) through an interactive simulation of a decision process developed by the philosopher John Rawls in his influential book, A Theory of Justice. In the decision process, students are shielded from their own circumstances…

Digital Humanities: Appealia

Digital Humanities utilizes new digital technologies to adapt traditional humanities topics to the modern world. For example, English Educators across the country have identified a need to redefine what it means to be literate for this generation. Serious games provide a potential method to address this issue. A “serious game” is commonly defined as any game that has a purpose other than strictly entertainment. Serious games provide virtual environments that allow students a realistic opportunity to practice and develop a variety of different competencies.

Wind Turbine Simulators – Wind Turbine Design

Study of twist angle along the length of the blade and velocity contours at different angles of attack.

A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy. Understanding the wind turbine organization and the energy transformation has long been challenging for many engineering students. As a new approach in teaching wind energy, an interactive computer program was developed to provide students with hands-on experience in visualizing and manipulating wind turbine.

Sinter Cooler

Sinter Cooler Geometry

The sinter cooler is used to reduce the hot sinter produced. The cooling efficiency of the sinter cooler is significant to the sinter quality. In addition, reducing cooling time by optimizing the operation condition can save energy. Advanced in-house simulation code has been previously developed to investigate the cooling processor of the sinter cooler. However, there is no user-friendly interface existed for researchers to specify the input condition, geometry, and monitor the simulation process. Therefore, current effort has been focused on the development of the preprocessor for simulation code.
