Across the Internet, engineers are discussing the situation with Boston's Big Dig/Central Artery Tunnel project and the materials failure which led to the death of a 39-year-old woman and the closing down of several key connectors, tunnels and roadways throughout the city.
Ongoing investigations show failures were known to project coordinators as long as six years ago and everyday more loose bolts and faulty bolt and epoxy assemblies are being discovered.
Structurally speaking, even if these faulty portions of the infrastructure are corrected, what are the chances of this having long-term repercussions?
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
