Owl wings inspire aerospace industry to design quieter aircraft

RIDC CCES-associated researchers in tandem with ITA and Lehigh University scientists have identified traits in the morphology of owl wings that enable these birds to fly silently.

Software locates sugarcane genes of interest

Brazilian researchers develop a program for high-performance computers to map specific portions of plant DNA faster and less expensively for use in breeding more productive and stress-resistant varieties.

New material could revolutionize solar fuel generation

International group of researchers including Brazilian scientists obtain new material from iron ore with application as a photocatalyst.

Ultra-strong material is produced from a nineteenth-century idea

Researchers in Brazil and US used 3D printing to produce structures with high mechanical strength based on mathematical models created by Karl Schwarz in 1880

Study lays groundwork for use of carbon nanotubes in aerospace structures

Brazilian researchers collaborating with US colleagues make material more resilient for use in satellites and spacecraft
