New York University researchers have developed a method to shape solid materials using a corn starch solution. The process, devised by researchers in NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Department of Physics, offers a potential technique for material cutting and manufacturing processes. Their work is described in the journal Physical Review Letters. Manufacturers use a variety of methods for shaping solid materials, ranging from laser cutting to high-speed jets of water....

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Bacteria can live in longwall hydraulic fluid, consuming portions of the longwall fluid in their growth, which lowers product performance. Bacteria feed on the emulsifiers used in semi-synthetic and soluble oil type fluids, which destabilize the emulsion resulting in emulsion bleed or oil split. Split longwall emulsions reduce fluid lubricity. Separated or split fluids can also cause other problems, including component corrosion and solenoid valve...

Let's do a little science experiment. If you have a can of whipped cream in the fridge, go get it out. Spray a generous dollop into a spoon and watch carefully. Notice anything interesting? The whipped cream just did something rather puzzling. First it flowed smoothly out of the nozzle like a liquid would, and then, a moment later, it perched rigidly in the spoon as if it were solid. What made it change? (While you're pondering this question, insert spoon into mouth, in the name of...
