Treated Bioactive Coating Improves Bone-Implant Bonding

The researchers think their specially coated implants could soon be used commercially after a few more rounds of clinical testing, since the materials are already FDA approved and used in other devices and implants.

What are the Differences Between Various Nickel-based Metals and Alloys?

Nickel alloys are used extensively in industry due to their resistance to corrosion and ability to withstand high temperatures and pressures.

Machine Design Talks to the Men behind Solar Impulse

Jeff Kerns

As Solar Impulse flies over the Mediterranean Sea, it is about to start the final leg of its journey around the world without any fuel.

The fuel-free Solar Impulse, which we have reported on extensively, landed in Cairo International Airport in Egypt...

Lab Develops Viscosity Profiles for Carbon-Binding Materials

With the aid of computer modeling, a team from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is investigating the behavior of carbon-dioxide binding organic liquids (CO2BOLs) when binding to CO2 emissions.

Coming Soon - Rapid Manufacturing: Not Just for Prototypes

Prototyping processes such as 3D printing, CNC machining and forms of injection molding have been known to produce great prototypes in low quantities. The perception of these processes known as Rapid Manufacturing is that they are only valuable for prototyping.

Coming Soon - Thermal Management: Heat Pipes, HiKTM Plates, and Vapor Chambers – Selection and Modeling

Heat pipes, high conductivity (HiK™) plates, and vapor chambers are two phase technologies that are often considered for electronics cooling.  All three devices rely on the very high evaporation and condensation coefficients of two phase fluids to reduce the ΔT between the source and the sink for a given power.  When properly engineered for power and mission duration, all of these devices provide passive, reliable cooling.

Coming Soon - Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of SAE: Next-Generation Advanced Combustion/Aftertreatment

In Conjunction with SAE
The proven, reliable, and still low-cost internal-combustion engine continues to evolve to meet more stringent global vehicle emission and fuel economy regulations, driven by ongoing technology developments by OEMs, engineering consultancies, national labs, and research universities.

Graphene Nanocomposite Dissipates Heat in LED P-N Junction

Scientists in Taiwan found yet another use for graphene as an efficient heat sink between p-n junctions in light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
