Mitsubishi Motors North America of Detroit released the Concept-RA, a coupe that matches high performance with environmental sensitivity. The Concept-RA is powered by a high-output, low-emissions 2.2-l, 4-cylinder, 16-valve turbo diesel engine. To comply with U.S. emissions standards, the diesel relies on a new catalytic converter system that utilizes diesel oxidation catalyst, NOx trap catalyst and diesel particulate filter technologies.
The Concept-RA also makes use of lightweight materials in construction to help reduce vehicle mass for improved performance, fuel economy and safety. The coupe features a new body structure that utilizes an aluminum space frame made from extruded aluminum sections and die-cast aluminum components. The hood, fenders and other outer panels are molded from impact-resistant and easily recycleable plastic resin.

Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
