A common step in food preparation is reducing the moisture content of food samples. ElectroHydroDynamic (EHD) drying reduces the energy required to do this by subjecting the sample to a high voltage electrostatic field which enhances the drying effect. Working with Dr. Mike Bright from electrical engineering and Dr. Erik Bardy from mechanical engineering, a student uses a previous senior project to conduct research into EHD drying.
Working with Dr. Tim Mohr from electrical engineering, one of our students is designing a printed circuit board to provide customized tremolo effects for electric guitars. The student researched the best ways to produce the special effect then developed a circuit to enhance current models in order to allow for more control. The student is designing the circuit board, the controls, and the housing to bring it all together.
