Modernizing London’s Sewers

Posted on July 2nd, 2015

As rain pours down onto a London street, umbrellas pop open and pedestrians scatter. Small fast-moving rivers race down the street, eventually flowing into sewers beneath the city. The storm runoff quickly overtaxes the Victorian-era combined sewer system, parts of which are the “lost rivers of London” that were covered over as the city grew. […]

CFD Modeling

Posted on July 17th, 2014

IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering is leading a worldwide revolution in the development and application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), in support of simulation-based design (SBD). Researchers at IIHR use SBD — a sort of virtual reality, supported by model-scale experiments — to develop efficient new ways to design and test engineering designs and prototypes. Computer simulations […]

Fred Stern: Revolutionizing Ship Hydrodynamics

Posted on November 13th, 2013

For 17-year-old Fred Stern, the future looked bright from the deck of a sailboat racing across the waters of Lake Ontario. The young man from Syracuse, N.Y., took advantage of his home’s close proximity to the Great Lakes to spend every moment he could sailing. With a small push from his father, Stern channeled his […]

Developing a Digital Lung

Posted on February 27th, 2012

Ching-Long Lin loves his work. The IIHR research engineer is a key player in a project to develop a digital model of the human lung. Lin, who is also a professor of mechanical and industrial engineering at the University of Iowa, has received three grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), including a fouryear, […]

Building a Digital Lung

Posted on May 6th, 2011

IIHR Research Engineer Ching-Long Lin is a key player in a project to develop a digital model of the lung—a task so complex it was once considered beyond the processing power of the largest supercomputers. Lin, who is also a professor of mechanical and industrial engineering at the University of Iowa, was recently awarded a […]

Biofluids

Posted on January 18th, 2011

IIHR biofluids researchers are dedicated to understanding the unique fluid mechanics of biological flow systems in the human body, including the circulatory and respiratory systems. This complex and interdisciplinary area of research brings together engineers and health science researchers around the world to improve health care and quality of life for patients and their families. […]

Lin's digital lung project is a crucial piece of the human puzzle known as the "Physiome Project."

The Human Puzzle: Developing a Digital Lung

Posted on January 4th, 2011

Researchers at The University of Iowa and elsewhere have created a digital lung, or computer model of the human lung to simulate the flow of air. Researchers and physicians, as well as patients, will benefit.
