Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a flow-based high-throughput screening technology designed to identify optimum conditions for performing high-pressure/high-temperature catalytic chemical reactions.
Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have developed a method that could protect the power grid from cyber attacks.
To prevent dangerous process incidents from occurring, facilities should employ effective communication, provide workers with appropriate training, and have in place strong and up-to-date policies and procedures. Eleven key principles and best practices are highlighted.
With greater connectivity between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT), and the rise of the IIoT, can increase and even change the vulnerabilities of oil and gas assets to cyber attack. Companies and standards groups are looking to counter these efforts.
The goal of structural health monitoring is to increase supervision of critical areas, extend the lifetime of structures, and reduce operating costs and improve safety.
Researchers at the University of Adelaide have developed a laser sensor device that uses patterns of light absorption to measure the composition of the gas sample.
Scientists from the Étienne Jules Marey Institute of Movement Sciences (CNRS/Aix-Marseille Université) are developing a robot capable of altering its profile during flight like a bird.
Experts at the Honeywell User Group (HUG) Americas conference encouraged companies to be proactive and think outside the box when deploying and implementing cybersecurity and safety solutions to protect manufacturing systems.
In the oil and gas industry, safety and profitability must be intertwined as today's way of thinking needs to go beyond the conventional and move into the more digital and connected world.
Cybersecurity can make or break a manufacturing enterprise with the advent of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and can have a major effect on safety systems, which are often considered the last line of defense for a manufacturing company.
