This was a very informing article Jeremy. I find it interesting that many of those conductive adhesives can be used with thermoplastics made with 3D printers. This opens a host of possibilities in fast prototyping many electronic projects as well as being incredibly affordable to do so.
The fact that Electrically conductive adhesives can solve a variety of challenges for electrical and electronic devices, such as EMI/RFI shielding and static dissipation mabe leveraged to solve many of the design challenges. This may be really useful in medical devices too.
Thanks for a good overview of what's being done in this growing area. It seems that many materials are increasingly being asked to perform multiple functions, in this case hold things together and conduct electricity where you want it to go. I was also intrigued to see the mention of nanomaterials.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
