Understanding Aluminum Alloys
Features 8/25/2010 1 comment From its low energy use to its suitability for anodizing, aluminum can be a good choice for designers seeking high thermal and electrical conductivity. Knowing which aluminum alloy series to use is critical for complex extrusions.
Design Tools Make Their Way to the Cloud
Features 8/23/2010 Post a comment While the cloud has not widely been floated as a fit for CAD and CAE applications, vendors are now showing early prototypes that could change the way engineers collaborate and tap into massive amounts of compute power.
The Strati EV car printed at the IMTS show is made of SABIC's LNP STAT KON AE003. SABIC tells Design News why this carbon fiber-reinforced compound was chosen by Local Motors and Oak Ridge National Laboratories.
The 2014 Ig Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Dr. Kiyoshi Mabuchi and his team members for their work measuring the slipperiness of banana peels. Turns out they're slipperier with the yellow side up.
Many scientists have been working battery-free ways to power wearable electronics that can replace bulky battery packs, particularly through the use of energy-harvesting materials. Now a team of researchers in China have upped the game by developing a lightweight and flexible solar cell that can be woven into two-way energy-harvesting fabric.
