How pedestrians can feel up to 1.5 degrees Celsius cooler in urban areas thanks to cool paint coatings

A real-world study has shown that the use of cool paint coatings in cities can help pedestrians feel up to 1.5 degrees Celsius cooler, making the urban area more comfortable for work and play.

Getting better electronics by pushing material boundaries

Associate professor Jeehwan Kim is exploring systems that could take over where silicon leaves off.

The nuclear power reactors of the future could depend on molten salts – but what about corrosion?

Researchers show that using the right metals could alleviate the corrosion problem in these promising new reactor designs.

How new materials and designs are making wind power's towers and turbines greener and cheaper

Why clear-eyed assessments of the risks to key infrastructure are needed

Catastrophic collapses of key bridges are thankfully rare. Whether because of an extreme loading event or an accident, these supposedly rare events in the life of a bridge still need to be assessed before they happen, and mitigation measures taken in accordance with all the potential consequences. This type of analysis is known as a 'risk-based consequence assessment'.

Here are five reasons why people should heat their home using infrared fabric

Imagine heating your home from the ceiling, not from underfloor heating or radiators. Once installed like wallpaper, high-tech infrared fabric emits heat in a similar way to the sun’s rays. This could be a logical way to add low-carbon heat into existing homes that need retrofitting to improve energy efficiency, writes Michael Siebert, Nottingham Trent University.
