Jeremy Young, MSE BSE Student, runs a cylinder combustion simulation in the Michigan Immersive Digital Experience Nexus (MIDEN) in the UM3D Lab Digital Media Commons in the Duderstadt Center on June 10, 2015.
The simulation allows for Young to visualize and measure velocity of fluids of different volume points of a cylinder combustion engine.

Cranberry juice capsules can lower the risk of urinary tract
infection (UTI) by 50 percent in women who have a catheter in place
while undergoing elective gynecological surgery.
The reduction is similar to the outcome when patients take
antibiotics as a preventative measure, says Betsy Foxman, professor of
epidemiology at the University of Michigan School of Public Health and
lead author of the new study.
“Taking cranberry juice capsules is preferable to taking antibiotics,
because limiting antibiotic use helps avoid antibiotic resistance and
protects the good bacteria living in and on our bodies from inadvertent
damage,” she says.
