  • Ceramic-Matrix Composites
    vapor deposition. A thick layer of silicon carbide is deposited on a thin fiber substrate of tungsten or carbon. Diameter of the final product is about 140 m. Although developed initially to reinforce aluminum and titanium matrices,
  • Medical Device Link .
    of Michigan, and the University of Texas to simulate the electronic states and total energies of various carbon molecules. Although the new fibers have yet to be synthesized, the group theorizes that nanotubes about 0.4 nm in diameter could be made from simple starting materials. The researchers
  • Hot designs strut their stuff
    , thanks to carbon-fiber-reinforced composite construction. The composite has a high strength-to-weight ratio, which let Storck drop about 220 gm over an aluminum model. The carbon-fiber-based frames come in four heights, with a variety of lower tube diameters. Storck had another winning entry, Ergo
  • Novel windmill captures more energy
    . (, puts several rotors on a single carbon-fiber driveshaft. A 7-ft-diameter turbine typically produces a peak power of 800 W. "The recordsetting model is at a 5,000-ft elevation so 5.3 kW corrects to 6.0 kW at sea level, " says inventor Doug Selsam. The design has been tested for six months
  • Racing to tech transfer
    under the hood of a C6-R race car reveals a carbon-fiber intake box fed by two ducts. Each duct flange contains a 31.5-mmdiameter restrictor plate. The plates limit airflow to the 7.0-liter engine and cap power output at about 590 hp. Race rules key restrictor size to car weight; heavier cars get
