Traffic and wind regularly cause low frequency vibrations to ripple through bridge building materials such as steel and concrete. This energy would normally travel away from its source before dissipating — but School of Mathematics' Rachel Kuske is joining colleagues at Georgia State University and Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh to capture and recycle this untapped energy source by using the principles of physics.
