Can you measure quality of view?

Two engineering students from Department of Engineering have written a Master's thesis, which may influence the construction of student accommodation in the future. In collaboration with researchers, they have developed and tested a formula that makes it possible to calculate the quality of the view from small student flats.

Built on instability

Instability is a common feature in nature. But mankind is not yet really started to reap the benefits of nature's elastic and structural instabilities, that has spawned from eons of evolution.

Danish researchers invent anti-cancer molecule as a Lego kit

A new, smart molecule enables researchers to build exactly the antibody that works best for a given type of cancer. The researchers have high expectation for the molecule in future cancer treatment, as it also activates the body's own immune system against malignant cancer cells.

Researchers fracture heart valves with small high-pressure balloons in the laboratory. The aim is to calculate the exact minimum pressure for a defective heart valve to fracture  without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Danish researchers behind new treatment for heart-valve patients

Now patients can have their worn-out artificial heart valve replaced without major surgery. Together with physicians at Aarhus University Hospital, engineers from Aarhus University have developed and characterised a gentle method to fracture old implants and make room for new ones.

Much can be learned from the ancient Japanese art form origami, when it comes to designing modern metamaterials. (Photo: Lars Kruse, AU)

Centuries-old art form generates completely new materials

Origami. For many people, the word means not much more than skilfully folding paper to resemble swans, frogs or other animals. But origami is much more. There are examples of origami throughout the modern world, but it's likely that you won't notice all the things that are in fact inspired by this 17th century Japanese art form.

AU Engineering at the People's Meeting 2018

The technology-based society of the future was on the agenda of the 2018 People's Meeting on Bornholm. Food technology and artificial intelligence were amongst the topics discussed in the tent of engineering from June 14 to 17.
