A group of engineering students has designed a smart lid for coffee, which stops you from burning your tongue when you drink. (Photo: Colourbox)
At left in this image is a standard lid for a to-go mug. At right is the first version of a lid with features that have been thoroughly thought out from an engineering point of view. It is designed with a starting point in fluid mechanical and thermodynamic principles with a view to improving the coffee experience for consumers. (Photo: Adam Flytkjær)

Smart lid on the way for coffee drinkers

A specially designed lid can solve the problem of burning your tongue when you drink hot coffee. A group of engineering students is behind the invention and they have just started production of the first prototype.

Aarhus University is opening its energy laboratory in Katrinebjerg on Friday 2 December. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
The laboratory can be used by researchers, students and companies. The aim is to gain experimental experience with an energy system based on full integration of sustainable energy sources such as the sun, wind and biogas. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
The RESCUE Lab is self-sufficient with energy from the sun, wind and biogas, and also has the capacity to store energy. This image is taken on the roof, which is equipped with solar cells. (Photo: Lars Kruse)

New energy laboratory opens in Aarhus

A new energy laboratory at Aarhus University will provide new knowledge about how to optimise a sustainable electricity supply in Denmark and the rest of Europe. Both researchers and students, as well as companies in Denmark and abroad will have access to the state-of-the-art technical facilities.

Danish researchers behind new cancer images

By combining two different scanning technologies, researchers have succeeded in creating completely new and detailed images of cancer tumours in mice. This could eventually pave the way for the development of more effective drugs.

In the coming years, researchers will develop new technology that can accommodate the world’s growing need for computers that are even smaller, faster and more energy-efficient. With a prestigious EU research grant, they will establish a completely new technological foundation for the electronics of the future.

Congratulations to the new engineering graduates

On Friday 1 July, diplomas were awarded to a new batch of engineers from Aarhus University. The event was followed by speeches and sparkling wine.

The building laboratory at AU Engineering has in recent weeks been the epicentre of true copies of some of the most powerful earthquakes in history. All the vibrations come from a specially built simulator. Pictured here (from left) are Jakob Gam, Andreas Poulsen and Søren Truelsegaard – all engineering students at Aarhus University.

Well-insulated new shelters have become popular as a replacement for cotton tents or tin huts in emergency areas. They can house refugees for up to 15 years and provide protection from heat and frost. But can they also withstand an earthquake? (Photo: Evershelter)

Students recreate earthquakes in the laboratory

A group of engineering students has built an earthquake simulator that can very precisely recreate historical earthquakes in the laboratory. They can now carry out full-scale safety tests on small buildings.

The Grundfos hall of residence at the Port of Aarhus is no ordinary building. It uses energy when there is plenty of solar and wind power, and it ‘hibernates’ when the power in the energy grid comes from fossil fuels. (Photo: Henrik Olsen)
A technical room has been set up in the basement of the building, with equipment that provides monitoring of the energy consumption in all the apartments at intervals of a few seconds. Pictured here are Associate Professor Steffen Petersen (right) and PhD student Michael Dahl Knudsen – both from the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. (Photo: Henrik Olsen)

Intelligent buildings make our energy consumption greener

It is possible to shift our energy consumption to times of the day when there is plenty of power from renewable sources such as solar and wind. At least to a certain extent if we invest in technology for intelligent management of our buildings. This is the conclusion of researchers in connection with the completion of one of the world’s most…
