  • 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
  • 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
  • Magnesium parts with muscle
    the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all structural metals, except for titanium. Its density is only slightly above that of plastic, but its high (72 W/m-K) thermal conductivity lets it dissipate heat more effectively. This makes magnesium a better candidate for parts that see elevated temperatures

  • Advances in FRP Composites in Civil Engineering
    Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) system has achieved a worldwide acceptance over other strengthening systems due to its high strength to weight ratio , favourable behaviour in harsh environments, improved fatigue behaviour, ease of handling in application, and non corrosive nature (ACI 440, 2002).
  • Americam Society of Composites: 29th Technical Conference
    Since a continuous length of fiber is used during wrapping, parts maintain a high strength to weight ratio .
  • Handbook of Manufacturing Engineering and Technology
    The demands of the aerospace industry turned attention towards materials with high strength to weight ratios , and focus on forming aluminum- and magnesium-based alloys was considered relevant.
  • Manufacturing Science and Technology III
    Titanium and its alloys were extensively used in many applications (especially in aerospace, medical, marine and surgical implants etc.) because these have excellent properties such as exceptional corrosion resistance, high strength to weight ratio and high temperature strength.
  • Uses of Epoxy Resins
    (5) High strength to weight ratios .
  • Advances in Structural Engineering
    The application of FRP had been proved to be a competitive technique for strengthening of RC members because of several advantages concerning composites, such as high strength to weight ratio , high resistance to corrosion, easy to apply characteristics, simple repairing and retrofit …
  • Advances in Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering
    Forging also can produce part with good mechanical properties such as high strength to weight ratio , good toughness and resistance to impact at a moderate cost.
  • Progress in Structures
    The high strength to weight ratio and good forming properties of cold-formed steel section has permit the members to be formed in various geometry shapes, and provide large variety of choices for steel designers.
