Rosato Assists Young Physicists in International Competition

Dr. Anthony D. Rosato, professor of Mechanical Engineering, was asked by Team Poland to recommend literature and other sources to assist them in solving the Brazil Nuts Effect problem, one of 17 that the high school students tackled at the 2004 International Young Physicists’ Tournament held in Brisbane, Australia, from June 24 to July 1, 2004.  Among the 26 teams that represented 24 nations, Team Poland placed first. The Brazil Nuts phenomenon was coined by Dr. Rosato and his colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University in their Physical Review Letters paper published in 1987.
