미국 세인트 루이스에 있는 워싱턴 대학의 연구진은 주변에서 쉽게 볼 수 있는 일반적인 붉은 벽돌을 에너지 저장 장치로 바꾸는 방법을 발견했다. 이 연구 결과가 상용화된다면 잠재적으로 벽돌이 배터리가 될 수 있다는 가능성을 의미한다. 전도성 고분자(폴리머)를 사용하여 녹을 슈퍼 커패시터로 변환하는 기술을 알아본다.
This Ultra Performance Heat Exchanger is a perfect example of how small parts can make a HUGE difference. Still in development, the additively manufactured compact heat exchanger is printed with a high-temperature capable, crack-resistant nickel superalloy that will be able to withstand temps that exceed 1,650°F at pressures >3,600 psi. Good thing, too, because it’s headed straight for the inside of a gas turbine, where it’s projected to deliver a 4% improvement in thermal efficiency for supercritical C02 power cycles while improving power output and reducing emissions. Cleaner, more efficient power generation here we come.
What happens when cutting-edge technology meets unparalleled performance? The CFM* LEAP engine of course. So what makes this engine so amazing? We can think of a few reasons… ➡️It includes the first-ever 3D-woven fiber composite fan blades and fan case ➡️CMCs give it 20% greater temperature capability ➡️It’s the first engine to use 3D-printed parts for critical engine components ➡️It delivers 15% percent better fuel efficiency than its predecessor
Colder weather is on the way. If you’re in Winnipeg, Canada, that means ice testing is too. There, @geaviation test engines are pummeled with sub-zero winds and ice. The harsh conditions on the ground make sure engines are ready to face the elements in the air. #AVgeek#jetengine#engineering
Spooky season is here, but don't let your annual mammogram scare you. Nearly 30% of women in the U.S. admit to skipping breast screenings out of fear. That's why @gehealthcare engineers decided to better the experience with a mammography system designed by women, for women. Melding comforting design with cutting edge technology, the Senographe Pristina aims to humanize the process for patients, technicians, and radiologists. #BCAM#Mammography#breastcancerawareness
