November 15, 2013 — Optimization research provided by Georgia Tech helped improve a computer algorithm used to ensure that electricity generation meets the demand in Brazil. The country relies heavily on hydroelectric facilities for its electricity.
October 21, 2013 — A new Department of Energy grant will fund research to advance an additive manufacturing technique for fabricating three-dimensional nanoscale structures from a variety of materials. The technique uses high-speed, thermally-energized jets to deliver both precursor materials and inert gas.
October 15, 2013 – As the newly appointed Chief Engineer for pediatric technologies for the Georgia Tech-Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta partnership, solving real world problems for clinicians by leveraging the engineering expertise on Georgia Tech’s campus is Leanne West’s new job.
October 17, 2012 — The 2012 Georgia Manufacturing Survey provides some welcome good news for Georgia companies. For the first time since researchers began tracking the statistic, more Georgia manufacturers have been benefiting from in-sourcing – production work coming to them from outside the state – than have been losing work to other states and countries.
May 29, 2012 — Researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) have developed a prototype system that uses advanced imaging technology and a robotic cutting arm to automatically debone chicken and other poultry products.
May 22, 2012 — A new study shows that the availability of hydrogen plays a significant role in determining the chemical and structural makeup of graphene oxide, a material that has potential uses in nano-electronics, nano-electromechanical systems, sensing, composites, optics, catalysis and energy storage.
May 18, 2012 — Researchers have developed a novel technology that could change how industry designs and casts complex, costly metal parts. This new casting method makes possible faster prototype development times, as well as more efficient and cost-effective manufacturing procedures.
May 17, 2012 — Listening to squawks and other chicken “vocalizations” using digital signal processing techniques may help farmers better manage growing conditions, contributing to both healthier birds and more productive poultry operations.
May 9, 2012 — Georgia Tech received a $100,000 Grand Challenges Explorations grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to design a net-zero energy warehousing and distribution system for vaccines and drugs in developing countries.
Winter 2012 Research Horizons — The Georgia Institute of Technology was founded in 1885 with a mandate to develop manufacturing capabilities in the state of Georgia. Today, researchers whose work directly supports manufacturers can be found throughout Georgia Tech’s academic colleges, in the Georgia Tech Research Institute and in the Enterprise Innovation Institute.
