  • Hot designs strut their stuff
    Aachen-based is an electrically heated laminated safety glass that comes in clear, perfectly transparent, and screen-printed. Key to the Bambus Skis from German-based is natural, fast-growing, bamboo. Bamboo competes well with conventional ski materials due to its high strength-to-weight ratio
  • What new analysts should know about composites
    " composites for high strength-to-weight ratios. Production, however, was expensive and reliability of the finished materials was unproven under longterm loading, environmental damage, and handling. The early promise of radically stronger materials was broken because outside the lab, fiber and resin
  • Magnesium
    As the lightest structural metal available, magnesium's combination of low density and good mechanical strength results in a high strength-to-weight ratio. Because of their low modulus of elasticity, magnesium alloys can absorb energy elastically. Combined with moderate strength, this provides
  • Aluminum
    strength to 500 F. Besides a high strength-to-weight ratio and good formability, aluminum also possesses its own anticorrosion mechanism. When exposed to air, aluminum does not oxidize progressively because a hard, microscopic oxide coating forms on the surface and seals the metal from the environment
  • Better metals for modern cars
    strength-to-weight ratio, along with corrosion resistance, gives designers more options for machined and cold-formed parts. More than 60 standard and special stainless steels can cost effectively match even the most-demanding requirements. Stainless steels are corrosion resistant surfaceto-core
  • Bulletproofing on a budget
    strength. A CNC machine precisely wraps the composite in multiple layers around the metallic liner. A high strength-to-weight ratio comes from varying fiber orientation between layers in both the hoop and longitudinal directions. A detailed netting analysis lets designers calculate stresses
  • Robots take on composite layup
    . Composites are increasingly used in new applications as OEMs take advantage of excellent material characteristics, notably a high strength-to-weight ratio. Manufacturing advances are also aiding new developments. For instance, improvements in plug and mold designs let engineers assemble complex parts
  • Hungry for large parts? Try a composite sandwich
    composite, weighing 40% less than traditional systems, features a high strength-to-weight ratio, good fatigue and impact resistance, and good sound and temperature insulation properties. Here's how the process works. Two engineering thermoplastic sheets are thermoformed into three-dimensional skins
