The first annual MLK Day of Service at MSOE was a HUGE success! To better meet the needs of our students, the office of Servant-Leadership brought the opportunity to participate in various service activities to campus on this national holiday. Together, with the help of Circle K, Lambda Zeta Nu Sorority and the MSOE Bookstore, students honored Dr. King by crafting cards of appreciation to those who serve our country, writing inspirational notes to women battling breast cancer, passing on their words of wisdom to prospective students and packing school supplies to donate to kindergarten students Milwaukee Math and Science Academy. Hundreds of MSOE students participated in this student-led activity which allowed them to practice their humanity in a way that fit into their busy academic schedule.

Tower1.jpgTwo 1,600-pound, 16-foot x 16-foot MSOE logos were lifted into place on top of the 14-story Grohmann Tower apartment building at MSOE on Feb. 10. The signs are at the northwest corner of the building, and are LED-lit.

The Grohmann Tower is MSOE’s newest and most desirable on-campus housing option for upperclassmen. The apartment building opened at the beginning of this academic year and 184 students moved into 102 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments on the fourth through ninth floors. The second phase of construction is currently under way to complete apartments and meeting spaces on the 10th through 14th floors.

 

The building originally was slated to be an extended-stay hotel, but the project went bankrupt while it was under construction in 2008. Read more about the Grohmann Tower in Dimensions magazine.

 

IMG_1660.JPG.jpgThe Fluid Power InstituteTM at MSOE has developed a new test procedure for assessing the amount of dirt and dust that enters a typical hydraulic system through the rod wiper. The test was developed in cooperation with Hallite Seals Americas Inc., a global manufacturer of high-performance hydraulic sealing solutions. The test breaks new ground because it features a novel methodology for measuring dry particles attributed to being a major cause of hydraulic system inefficiency, degradation and failure. It fills a critical need within the cylinder manufacturing industry.

The work was completed at the Fluid Power Institute’s off-site location on Milwaukee’s south side, and is an example of the custom work MSOE can do for its clients. Undergraduate students gain first-hand experience in developing testing methods for the fluid power industry and play a key role in conducting the tests.

“By cooperating with one of the leading academic fluid power research laboratories in the nation where students are building and managing the mechanical functions for test fixtures, Hallite is providing real-world interaction to help the next generation of hydraulics engineers learn more about seals and how they interact. This paves the path for innovative future testing methods,” said Chuck White, business development manager for Hallite.

Most hydraulic systems employ numerous cylinders which function like a syringe, drawing in contaminants. The rod wiper located in the sealing configuration of a hydraulic cylinder is designed to limit the ingression of dirt, dust and grit, making it one of the most critical system components. However, there is no speciIMG_1663.JPG.jpgfic ISO method for testing a rod wiper’s ability to prevent >4, >6 and >14 micron particles from entering the hydraulic system. These microscopic particle sizes are most damaging to hydraulic systems as referenced in ISO 4406 for coding contamination levels in hydraulic fluids.

“The MSOE rod wiper test uses an online particle counting method instead of traditional gravimetric measurement where particles are weighed,” said White. “The particle count approach provides a more complete and accurate assessment of contaminants than weight because two samples can have the same gravimetric weight in oil, but one may contain many more dirt particles than the other indicating much greater potential for damage to precision components. This new method raises the bar on keeping solid contaminants out of the system now to avoid problems later.”

2015_Top_Logo-02-02.jpgMilitary Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded Milwaukee School of Engineering the designation of a Top School in its 2015 MAE Guide to  Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education. (See msoe.edu/veterans and the MSOE Military & Veteran Students online group.)

The guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year and two-year colleges. From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE’s 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.

Now in its eighth year of publishing the Guide, MAE was the first publication to launch a reference tool of this type. This year, institutes were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services. Performance ratings are listed by category, enabling prospective students to quickly target those that follow best practices in military education, and then put these in context with other academic or career considerations.

“We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising service members about their educational opportunities,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor. “We used strict criteria to individually evaluate the submissions of respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year.”

Students from Mitchell Middle School in Racine, Wis., were the 2014 Overall Winners in the NFPA Fluid Power Challenge. The team was coached by Keith Kohlmann.

2014 Fluid Power Challenge.jpgThe competition is designed to get middle school students excited about fluid power and on Dec. 8, 34 teams competed at MSOE. There were four students on each team, and they worked hard to design and build fluid power mechanisms that pick an object from one platform, rotate and place it on another. In addition to the number of pick-and-place cycles a school’s machine completed, a review of each team’s design approach, teamwork and portfolio was used in the final evaluation.

Six teams from Lake Country School (Hartland, Wis.) participated in the challenge. Team A was the 2014 Design Winner and Team D was the 2014 Portfolio Winner. Fred Levenhagen was the coach.

Team C from St. Thomas Aquinas Academy (Milwaukee) was the 2014 Challenge Winner and Melissa Steidl was their coach. Five teams from STAA participated.

Lake Shore Middle School (Mequon, Wis.) was the 2014 Teamwork Winner. Charles Harris was their coach.

This was the largest NFPA Fluid Power Challenge held at MSOE to date. Students were introduced to the world of engineering and fluid power during an on-campus workshop in November where they built a pneumatic lifter.
