Purdue researchers say legislation moving through Congress could provide a huge boost to cancer research and drug development—two areas where funding has been eroding. http://bit.ly/1JPsSyL

High-performance aircraft turbine engine manufacturers are facing unprecedented increases in the amount of heat that must be released in order to maintain acceptable temperatures in supersonic engines that is required for the aircraft to operate at optimum levels. Prof. Issam Mudawar has developed a device that could use aircraft fuel to cool hot engine components in order to alleviate the increasing temperatures. http://bit.ly/1GCH23W

The Purdue Board of Trustees today have authorized a construction contract for a $6.2 million project to renovate the College of Engineering lab space in the east wing of Forney Hall. The east wing includes three stories, a basement and ground floor structure, in which labs will be updated with new fume hoods, exhaust systems, electrical and lighting systems, and HVAC. There also will be renovations to existing graduate student office spaces, as well as the creation of new office space. bit.ly/1GDPwYD

Indiana’s flood-ravaged grain crops could still produce a modest yield, but the chances for recovery are becoming increasingly slim with more rain forecast for parts of the state over the next two weeks, Purdue Extension experts say. “I have been optimistic with my assessment, based on the possibility that the weather would moderate,” says corn expert Bob Nielsen. “But every subsequent downpour pushes a few more fields off the cliff.” Prospects are not much brighter for soybeans. “It’s very similar to what we are experiencing with corn,” says soybean specialist Shaun Casteel. “Some plants have been in standing water for up to three weeks.” bit.ly/1OmKkOL

The Rice Computer Cluster, built by ITaP in May 2015, made the latest TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, released this month. Purdue has three machines listed, more than for any other U.S. school, giving the University the best collection of high-performance computing systems for use by faculty researchers on any single campus in the country.

A test chamber developed at Purdue University allows engineers to simulate precisely what happens to soil underground during the installation of piles and other structural elements, a research tool for improving construction of everything from buildings and bridges to offshore wind turbines. The system can be used to study many types of geotechnical structures during both their construction and service life, says Rodrigo Salgado, a professor of civil engineering. "The nice thing about the chamber is that it can be used to study many geotechnical problems for which there are neither experimental data nor theoretical solutions," he says. http://bit.ly/1NW5Fij

Story
Tagline
World-renowned faculty and more than 400 research laboratories put Purdue University among the world's leading research institutions.
Introduction
Purdue's West Lafayette campus boasts more than 400 research laboratories and 116 University-approved research centers and institutes. Overseen by the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships, our growing research enterprise focuses on the following areas:

* Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education
* Life and Health Sciences
* Sustainability: energy, environment and climate change
* Security, Defense and Space Sciences
* Cyber and Information Technology

During the 2014 fiscal year, Purdue University received $389 million in research awards, an increase of nearly $70 million (close to 22%) over 2013. Sources included private industries, the National Science Foundation, several federal government departments and state and local grants.
