  • Bulletproofing on a budget
    and Kevlar in the accumulator housing. The downsides to this design strategy are the extra cost and weight of the Kevlar. The extra layers also can take up appreciable space. Sharon, Mass. (, is to use lightweight composite housings. Their structural integrity

    or Second World Wars but is investigating lighter and stronger designs using woven Kevlar fibres and a phenolic rigid resin matrix that the fibres reinforce. The work is laying the groundwork for the development of a new generation of helmets. Led by principal researcher Prof. Michael Worswick
  • Medical Device Link .
    in complying with ISO requirements. The ankle-case housings had to endure at least 2 million cycles of released 80-kg weight loads equivalent to a person walking 2 million steps. "Over a six-month period, we molded the part using a half-dozen different materials including Kevlar and PEEK," recalls
  • Ruggedized RF Photonic Systems Achieve Battlefield SWaP Objectives
    . The fiber-optic interfacility link (IFL) has been designed to seamlessly replace copper coaxial interconnects and takes advantage of the extremely low loss-of-transmission characteristics of fiber-optic cable. Signals are transported using lightweight, Kevlar-reinforced, multi-strand, single-mode
  • Fast Bike
    Epoxy bonding can be a quick means of throwing together structural parts when you need a fast prototype. The prototype suspension-equipped mountain bike frame is made from carbon and Kevlar laminates bonded with West System epoxy resin. The suspension system is a free-floating design that doesn't
  • Reverse Engineering Builds a Better Motorbike for the Drag Strip
    of a mile. Physical analysis showed that the clutch failed when the friction materials wore away during the shift into second gear. But telemetry analysis revealed the clutch had launched the bike more quickly for the first 60 ft then ever before. Fisher decided to replace the Kevlar materials
  • Molding a better plastic nut
    polymers and special additives and fillers also let designers bolster structural integrity or add internal lubricity. Carbon fibers, fiberglass, and Kevlar fillers boost nut strength and thus load-carrying capacity. Silicon and PTFE additives,on the other hand, form lubricated layers at the thread
  • Safety Brake Helps Put High-Def Eye in the Sky
    , or if any of the four corner reels lose power, this safety reel pulls the camera up and away from players and spectators. The safety cable incorporates a Kevlar component, making it strong enough
