A new course in nanoscale mechanics for engineering students was recently taught at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Mechanics enters a new regime at the nanoscale, where the effects of surfaces, interfaces, defects, material property variations, and quantum effects are accentuated. This course provided an introduction to nanoscale engineering with a(More)
Under support from TARDEC, an effort to develop a 10 kWe compact reliable robust power system for combat-vehicle applications is well underway. This system operates on battlefield-spec JP-8 to provide silent auxiliary power for the vehicle. The reformer converts JP-8 into a hydrogen rich reformate. The power system combines the reformer with a(More)
We report the case of a woman with posttraumatic stress disorder secondary to childhood sexual assault who attempted withdrawal from long-term use of antidepressant medication and experimented with a plethora of different therapies. The complex case history illustrates the potential difficulty of withdrawal from chronic antidepressant medication and the(More)
Teaching modules devoted to nanoscale science and engineering concepts have been developed and integrated into key introductory and advanced undergraduate courses in the College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin Madison. In addition to one new course that has been created under this effort, existing courses have been modified, removing outdated(More)
