Professor Roger C. Reed, currently at the University of Oxford (UK), is a world-leading materials scientist specialized in high temperature materials and nickel-based superalloys as used for jet engines and power generation applications.
During his research career of twenty years Reed’s major research topics are in the fields of deformation mechanisms in single crystal superalloys under creep and thermal-mechanical fatigue conditions; the analyses of phase transitions and oxidation reactions and quantitative approaches for process modelling for example for models of welding and forging.
The Max-Planck-Institut in Düsseldorf will host Professor Reed for his further research on advanced superalloys from the beginning of March 2013.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation yearly awards outstanding international researchers with the Humboldt Research Award. This award comes with a prize money of 60 000 Euros.
The awardees have to be scientists from outside Germany and are characterized by their innovative and trendsetting work in their respective research field.

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.
The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...

Think of an object made of iron: An I-beam, a car frame, a nail. Now imagine that half of the iron in that object owes its existence to bacteria living two and a half billion years ago.
