How Friction Evolves During an Earthquake
How Friction Evolves During an Earthquake
By simulating earthquakes in a lab, engineers at Caltech have documented the evolution of friction during an earthquake-measuring what could once only be inferred, and shedding light on one of the biggest unknowns in earthquake modeling. Before an earthquake, static friction helps hold the two sides of a fault immobile and pressed against each other.

Cicada wings may inspire new surface technologies
Cicada wings may inspire new surface technologies
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Researchers are looking to insects - specifically cicadas - for insight into the design of artificial surfaces with de-icing, self-cleaning and anti-fogging abilities. Their wings allow cicadas to fly, of course, but they also are good at repelling water - a condition that humans can appreciate, too.

Wind turbines can pick up the slack on coldest days
Winter days are usually less windy, but a new analysis shows turbines work harder on the coldest days, when power demand is highest. During winter in Great Britain, warmer periods are often windier, while colder periods are often calmer, due to the prevailing weather patterns. Colder periods are also when electricity demand increases.

Conch shells spill the secret to their toughness
The shells of marine organisms take a beating from impacts due to storms and tides, rocky shores, and sharp-toothed predators. But as recent research has demonstrated, one type of shell stands out above all the others in its toughness: the conch. Now, researchers at MIT have explored the secrets behind these shells' extraordinary impact resilience.

Geologists use radioactive clock to document longest earthquake record
Using radioactive elements trapped in crystallized, cream-colored ‘veins' in New Mexican rock, geologists have peered back in time more than 400,000 years to illuminate a record of earthquakes along the Loma Blanca fault in the Rio Grande rift. It is the longest record of earthquakes ever documented on a fault, showing 13 distinct seismic events - nine of which occurred at regular intervals averaging 40,000-to-50,000 years and four that clustered together just five-to-11,000 years apart.
