  2. CEP: Profile - James Patten: Pushing the Boundaries of Interactive Design

    CEP Magazine article, August 2014

    Most computer interfaces today take very little advantage of our sense of touch,” says James Patten, founder of the Patten Studio and inventor of futuristic user interfaces and interactive experiences. His work combines the principles of engineering, computer programming, and design to give users completely unique experiences — from creating their own chemical reactions by grabbing onto virtual elements in a periodic table, to folding a protein and having the computer physically resist the folding pattern.

  3. CEP: Process Safety Beacon - Ignition Sources

    CEP Magazine article, August 2014

    The best way to prevent fires and flammable vapor explosions, either inside or outside process piping and equipment, is to avoid creating a flammable mixture. However, we must also recognize that our equipment and operating procedures can fail and a flammable atmosphere can result from a failure...

  7. CEP: AIChE Journal Highlight - An Inverse Approach to Materials Discovery and Design

    CEP Magazine article, August 2014

    The success of many emerging technologies hinges on the discovery of new materials that exhibit a combination of desired properties. Identification, synthesis, and fabrication of suitable materials for these applications remain challenging, relying on resource-intensive exploratory science. A better approach might be to begin with the target macroscopic properties in mind and then systematically narrow the list of possible material precursors and synthetic methods through an optimization technique.

  8. CEP: Catalyzing Commercialization - An Elegant Design Makes Compressed Air a Contender for Grid-Scale Storage

    CEP Magazine article, August 2014

    The potential for the integration of large amounts of renewable energy sources with the electricity grid will require large-scale storage devices. Compressed-air energy storage (CAES) is a cost-effective option for multi-hour storage applications. SustainX, a venture-capital-backed spin-out of Dartmouth College’s Thayer School of Engineering, has developed a novel isothermal CAES technology that promises to eliminate the disadvantages of traditional CAES.
