New technology to provide cheaper and greener district heating

Aarhus University is involved in a major new business partnership aiming to revolutionise Danish district heating.

"We investigated the mechanism of roughness creation, and we propose it has to do with subsurface crack propagation and material removal at different scales," says Assistant Professor Ramin Aghababaei on the project. Photo: Lars Kruse / AU Foto

A new first: Scientists mimic Nature’s self-affinity using computer simulations

For the first time ever, researchers have simulated the process of surface roughness creation: a step forward in understanding the emergence of fractal characteristic of rough surfaces on many scales ranging from atomic to geological scales – and maybe a step forward in earthquake prediction.

"We just need a sort of index of how the picture is built up. Like the instructions for a Lego kit. A detailed list of how to put the picture together with bits from other pictures," says Associate Professor Daniel Lucani Rötter. Photo: Peer Klercke.

New world-class research laboratory opens at Aarhus University

The new state-of-the-art international facility will enable the innovative development of wireless transceiver technology for next-generation communications

"Our study shows that large-scale infrastructure choices, such as back-up power plant capacity, are relatively unaffected by the level of climate change," says PhD fellow Smail Kozarcanin (right). Here along side his colleague Associate Professor Gorm Bruun Andresen.

Good news! Europe's electric grid will still work even as the world crumbles

Scientists at Aarhus University in Denmark studying the effects of climate change on weather-dependent electricity systems have found a silver lining in Earth's otherwise fraught future outlook.

"The biggest problem with these milling tools is that the edges are so worn down after just an hour milling that the tool has to be replaced," says Assistant Professor Ramin Aghababaei, who's leading the AU part of the Cutting-Edge project.
