At our laboratory in the Institute of Polymer and Dye Technology, TUL, research is conducted on predicting and, at the same time, calculating, the life time of a broad range of materials from packaging to tyres, windows, even concrete.

Many occupational groups such as law enforcement, military, and border security forces, due to the nature of the job, are at risk of being hit by a projectile, which could cause behind armor blunt trauma or bodily injury due to the rapid deformation of body armor.

Grab my hand and I'll take you on a journey into the future. You'll see a world that no one has touched yet. Or we could create it together... We'll design it so it is entirely consistent with the laws of nature. Sounds complicated? Let’s give it a try!

Prestressed structures with composite tendons are no longer a scientist's dream but rather a reality of global civil engineering.

A diffraction grating is an optical instrument with many applications in scientific research. The most important one is spectral analysis, which, in other words, means analysis of the chemical composition of materials.

Dr. Robert Krencik's Houston Methodist Research Institute research team is working on the possiblity of growing 'mini brains' from human stem cells. Availability of such structures will allow scientists to develop strategies for treating nervous system diseases and injuries faster.

I am talking about hydrocarbon fuel made out of carbon dioxide captured directly from air, which makes it possible to kill two birds with one stone: to get rid of the CO2 that so many of us love to hate, and second, to make fuel that is environmentally-friendly as it is not obtained from oil but from one of the greenhouse gases.

Apart from technological progress in building materials, construction, and energy-efficient systems, new developments in architecture also mean sweeping advance in design practice. Virtual Reality technology (VR) is making an entrance into construction industry and it would really be difficult now to imagine a future of architectural design tools without thinking of Virtual Reality.
