Post-processing – the labor intensive, detailed work that must occur after an additively manufactured part is printed before it is ready for use – currently accounts for 46 percent of the cost of metal 3D printing. Overall, metal additive manufacturing is projected to be a $25 billion a year industry by 2025.
Diego Gomez-Gualdron, assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, contributed with computational modeling to the Northwestern University-led project
A team of Mines professors have received National Science Foundation funding to develop computational tools to predict COVID-19 infections at individual and population levels.
Atomically thin particles – described that way because they are typically only 1-3 atoms thick – are of interest to scientists because of the unique properties that such small thickness creates.
The Make Masks for Mines effort is seeking volunteers with the skill, will and sewing machines to make masks as soon as possible. Local volunteers can also schedule a time to pick up Mines-furnished fabric for the project.
In Antarctica, Greenland and the Canadian Arctic, Geophysics Assistant Professor Matt Siegfried studies how glaciers and ice sheets move and evolve.
A Colorado School of Mines glaciologist was part of a team of scientists that used the most advanced Earth-observing laser instrument NASA has ever flown in space to make precise, detailed measurements of how the elevation of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have changed over 16 years.
"Why does this matter? If you are looking for the hardest material on Earth, and you don’t consider metastable states, you just missed diamond, which is the hardest material that we know."
“With the rapid changes to the higher education landscape brought on by COVID-19, it’s even more important than ever to advance our MINES@150 strategic plan. To do that, we need great leaders focused on driving our critical initiatives," President Paul C. Johnson and Provost Richard Holz told campus.
The Center for Underground at Colorado School of Mines recently was awarded a major contract from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to design and demonstrate rapid tunneling
