Sandia and UNM collaborate to build more efficient rocket

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sal Rodriguez, a nuclear engineer at Sandia National Laboratories, is forging a rocket revolution with the help of the University of New Mexico and student Graham Monroe. Their cutting-edge research is propelling the future of aerospace by infusing rocket science with a touch of golf ball magic. They incorporated dimples similar to […]

Magnetically stimulated flow patterns offer strategy for heat transfer problems

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories researchers Jim Martin and Kyle Solis have what Martin calls “a devil of a problem.” They’ve discovered how to harness magnetic fields to create vigorous, organized fluid flows in particle suspensions. The magnetically stimulated flows offer an alternative when heat transfer is difficult because they overcome natural convection limits. Martin […]
