New research paves the way for green LEGO® bricks

A research project at Aarhus University has mapped the degradation mechanism for what may become the plastic materials of the future. This will make it easier to introduce sustainable plastic materials, for example for LEGO® bricks, according to the researcher behind the project.

Drug recycling and 'banapples': Engineering innovation captures Skejby

AU Engineering's new research facility, the Deep Tech Experimental Hub in Skejby, was crammed with engineering students when this year's "invention pitch" kicked off.

On May 3, the Department of Engineering opened the 2,100 sqm. research facility Deep Tech Experimental Hub. The hub is a critical element in the build-up of the research-based, engineering programs, which is a strategic focus for Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU Photo.

Prestigious funding for new engineering projects

On Thursday, four researchers from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University received grants from the Independent Research Fund Denmark. In total, Science and Technology has received a total of DKK 133.4 mill. (EUR 17.7 mill.), divided between 39 projects.

"Engineering is about translating deep theoretical knowledge into solutions to real issues, and I see this solution-oriented approach again and again from our students," says Thomas Toftegaard, head of department. One of the university's engineering students is Soffi Ester Olesen (in the photo), and she also uses her education to make a difference. On her second semester, she has helped develop a greenhouse gas membrane. Photo: Lars Kruse.

Engineering students to present 54 ideas for a better world

As many as 250 engineering students from different study programmes at Aarhus University have spent a semester inventing patentable ideas for technological solutions to three of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The inventions will be presented at a major event on 14 May.

"Designing electronic systems today is very often a matter of trial and error, and it costs a lot of money and takes a long time. If you can make the workflow simple and virtual with a model that simulates perfectly the finished product, you can save an awful lot of time and money," says Christian Møldrup Legaard, who, as an MSc in Engineering student will be attached to the new AU Centre for Digital Twins, which opens on 6 May.

New centre for digital twins: "The idea of being able to design and debug the entire system before you build it is absolutely fantastic"

24-year-old Christian Møldrup Legaard is studying for an MSc in Engineering in computer engineering. He will soon be a part of Aarhus University's new Centre for Digital Twins, and he believes that this new trend in digital systems can save a lot of money and grey hair.

In simple terms, the project uses surplus energy to pump water from a reservoir into a giant membrane buried under massive amounts of soil. For example, a mound like this. A 330 x 330 metre membrane will be raised up to a height of 14 metres when the balloon is filled up, and this will be able to store 230 MWh of green power. Photo: Lars Kruse/AU Foto.

Membrane project to store green energy in soil mounds

Not only batteries can store wind energy. Two master of science in engineering students from Aarhus University are working on a project that, using a huge balloon, and tonnes of ordinary soil and water, will make a giant battery for renewable energy.

Aarhus University opens Denmark's first Centre for Digital Twins

With a donation of more than DKK 12 million from the Poul Due Jensen Foundation, the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University is opening the doors to a new centre for long-term research into digital real-time models of cyber-physical systems -so-called digital twins.

AU Engineering is strongly represented at Aarhus University's new Digital Innovation Festival, where you can hear about the future for IT, including blockchain technology, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and drones.

On Friday, 5 April, Aarhus University opens the doors to a brand new digital innovation festival in IT City at Katrinebjerg. Come and hear about what the leading researchers and specialists in IT technology are working on.

"No one in the industry knows where this very restrictive standard text comes from. A look at the measurements and trials conducted in recent years reveals that this doesn’t really make sense," says Professor (Docent) Kenny Kataoka (left), who's digging deep in ancient Danish building codes together with PhD Student Jannie Knudsen (right).

The strange case of bored piles

Since 1977, Danish standards for foundations have been extremely restrictive with regard to using bored piles as foundations for buildings and other structures. But are bored piles really as inefficient as the standards imply? A new research project is digging into the matter.
