MOTION CONTROL: Advanced Antivibration Components’ Natural Rubber Suspension Mounts are designed to isolate suspended products that weigh from 56-112 lb. A popular use for these vibration isolators involves suspending piping in heating, ventilating and air conditioning - HVAC applications. The maximum deflection of these units is 6 mm (.24 inch) and their natural frequency ranges from 7-12 Hz. Other AAC rubber suspension mounts are designed to support weights up to 220 lb. They are best suited for hanging small machines such as fans, distribution pipes and ducts from ceilings.
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
Anyone who’s ever moved files from a hard drive to a computer has sat patiently waiting for the transfer to complete. But what if this process could be done wirelessly, without having to connect devices with cables, and in seconds?
