Celebrating ME125: Two Alumni on What's Wonderful About Mechanical Engineering

They are mechanical engineers, but they could not be more different. John Cerny (BSME ’51) is 83, retired. Katherine Polhemus (BSME ’13) is 60 years younger and a Georgia Tech graduate student set to embark on a promising career. John hails from a tiny town on Florida’s Gulf Coast; Katherine was raised in the bedroom community of Roswell, Ga. He finished Tech before women were admitted. Her everyday tool, a laptop computer, is one that never graced his office.

Heat-Conducting Polymer Cools Hot Electronic Devices at 200 Degrees C

Heat-Conducting Polymer Cools Hot Electronic Devices at 200 Degrees C

Polymer materials are usually thermal insulators. But by harnessing an electropolymerization process to produce aligned arrays of polymer nanofibers, researchers have developed a thermal interface material able to conduct heat 20 times better than the original polymer. The modified material can reliably operate at temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius.

Microfluidic Device Measures Drugs’ Influence on Blood Clotting

Microfluidic Device Measures Drugs’ Influence on Blood Clotting

A new microfluidic method for evaluating drugs commonly used for preventing heart attacks has found that while aspirin can prevent dangerous blood clots in some at-risk patients, it may not be effective in all patients with narrowed arteries. The study, which involved 14 human subjects, used a device that simulated blood flowing through narrowed coronary arteries to assess effects of anti-clotting drugs.
