  • Pneumatics and aerodynamics could boost tractor-trailer fuel efficiency
    for jet-aircraft wings. "Aerodynamically, we have resolved unknowns raised in earlier testing, and the next step is to get this into a fleet of trucks for more extensive testing, " said Robert Englar, principal research engineer in the Aerospace, Transportation and Advanced Systems Laboratory of the Georgia Tech
  • Breaking Records via Fuel Management (.pdf)
    In March 2005, the Virgin Atlantic turbofan-powered GlobalFlyer flew around the world nonstop, unrefueled, in 67 hours and one minute. Aerodynamics was key to GlobalFlyer's success; its configuration was optimized for range and fuel efficiency. At takeoff, the aircraft was approximately 83% fuel
  • Medical Device Link .
    Modified Fluid Dynamics System Aims to Improve Heart Devices A team of European researchers has adapted a technology used in aerodynamics to measure blood flow. Coordinated by (Genoa, Italy), an engineering consulting firm, the Smart-PIV project aims to "revolutionize heart treatments, " according
  • Simulating ice
    Transportation Safety Board. Icing affects aircraft by adding weight and, more importantly, by altering the shape, and hence the aerodynamics, of the wings. Long before pilots face the hazards of flying through icing conditions, aircraft manufacturers evaluate how icing affects the performance of the planes
  • Airbus builds a Military Airlifter
    A new, multirole transporter will replace aging heavylift aircraft in military fleets. The A400 military transport plane from Airbus will have four 11,000-shp turboprops, giving it enough power to take off from short, rough landing fields (under 3,000 ft), and still carry a 20-ton payload
