14.05.2013 Operators of waste water treatment plants will have a new tool to help run the plant more efficiently in 2014 when a new data management tool is planned to be ready for use.
Computational method to assist in the evaluation of loads created by ice rubbling against bridges and navigation marks
10.05.2013 In the course of a winter, ice is fractured and rubbled against offshore structures and coastlines. Such ice loads can put a strain on structures such as beacons and navigation marks, as well as bridges. It is not precisely known, however, at what force structures are being loaded by ice rubbling.
02.05.2013 Proprietors of landfills need to set aside enough money to finance care for the site for at least 30 years. In his doctoral dissertation, Yu Wang, M.Sc. (Tech.), indicates that this is usually too short a time to meet required environmental standards.
23.04.2013 Heikki Remes, a researcher at the Aalto University in Finland, has developed a model making it possible to determine how fatigue sets in with various welded steel materials. The model allows for the development of lighter structures, and as a consequence, more energy-efficient ships.
23.04.2013 To the joy of all the cappuccino lovers in Otaniemi, a cafe was opened at the Aalto Digital Design Laboratory (ADDLAB) at the end of January.
17.04.2013 Aalto University's data centre in Otaniemi will be shut down. The data centre infrastructure will be transferred to a new facility located in Otaniemi that the university has leased from an outside company. The procedure will increase the university's data centre capacity to meet the current needs and improve service reliability.
16.04.2013 Two scientists from Aalto University returned in late February from a three-month expedition to the Antarctic.
