High-speed images of a ferrofluid droplet penetrating into a layer of parallel Polystyrene (PS) fibers electrospun for 3 minutes are shown in the figure.

Mohammad Jamali is pursuing a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he is conducting research on understanding droplet mobility and penetration in nonwovens via numerical simulation and complementary experiment at Porous Media and Multi-Phase Flows (PMMF) Laboratory. His project is supported by The Nonwoven Institute at North Carolina State University. After finishing …

Why should we care about stormwater? Have you ever wondered what a mass extinction event might look like? Certainly, such events are well documented in the geologic record, involving gamma ray bursts, asteroids and comets, and perhaps the biggest killer so far, volcanism. Volcanism is commonly accepted as the cause of the Permian-Triassic extinction, also known as …

These drivers and developments have resulted in the nonwoven filtration market consuming an ever-greater amount of nonwoven material, reaching 1.3 million tonnes in 2018, an annual increase of 7.5% from 2008. The filtration end use is the fifth largest (in tonnage) of the nonwoven segments, consuming 9% of the world’s nonwovens production in 2018, and …
