Guest: Bharat Bhushan, PhD, Ohio Eminent Scholar and the Howard D. Winbigler Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering If you’ve ever driven in a car with leather seats in the heat of summer, you’ll know the discomfort of sticky leather seats. Not to mention, they stain really easily. Professor Bharat Bhushan has created a special elixir in his engineering lab at The Ohio State University.
