The University of Cincinnati has a student-run formula electric racing team

April 11, 2024

The University of Cincinnati has a longstanding presence in the Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (FSAE) competition. For several decades, UC students have built Formula and BAJA style cars to race and compete against schools nationwide at various competitions. However, with the emergence and growth in popularity of electric cars, one student set out to make UC's very first electric vehicle team. Bearcat Electric Vehicle (BEV) was founded by UC alumnus Sagar Tawari, during his time as a student.

The world is driven by liquid-vapor phase change

April 4, 2024

University of Cincinnati professor Kishan Bellur is captivated by evaporation - a phenomena that is happening all the time, all around us, but few of us notice. Most liquid surfaces, for example, water in a test tube, are not flat. There is a slight curvature to it called the meniscus. As the liquid evaporates, it climbs up the side of the tube forming a very thin liquid film that is hard to see with the naked eye. Understanding the evaporation process and the behavior of these films are the focus of Bellur's latest research.
