Shock-Wave Energy Inspiration for Development of Super-Strong Materials

This seems like a revolutionary idea to create such a force on materials to test them for strength, but in a way it also makes perfect sense. I can't think of a more effective way to see how strong something is--in various aspects of life--than to exert extreme pressure on it. And it seems like the scientists feel the same way.
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
