Harry Hilton is a professor of aerospace engineering at the University of Illinois.
When designing flying vehicles, there are many aspects of which we can be certain but there are also many uncertainties. Most are random, and others are just not well understood. University of Illinois Professor Harry Hilton brought together several mathematical and physical theories to help look at problems
KEMP, Texas -- Larson Electronics LLC has released an explosion-proof thermostat rated at 480V AC that offers temperature control for hazardous industrial facilities. This unit has a temperature limit range of -45°C to 80°C and has a set point knob system powered by a SPDT snap action switch, which allows
U.S. Army Research Laboratory electronics engineer Dr. Charles Kamhoua poses in the ARL Network Science Research Laboratory in Adelphi, Maryland, where he works on cloud security and the management of cyberspace risks.
ADELPHI, Md. -- Through a collaborative research effort, an Army researcher has made a novel contribution to cloud security and the management of cyberspace risks.
According to U.S. Army Research Laboratory electronics engineer Dr. Charles Kamhoua, technology has been the cause of many changes. Among
The researchers' vision is of vehicles where a large part of the car-body or aeroplane-fuselage consists of structural lithium ion batteries. Multi-functional carbon fibre can work as battery electrodes and load-bearing material consecutively. The researchers work with structural lithium ion batteries where the negative electrodes are made of carbon fiber and the positive electrodes are made of cathode-coated carbon fiber. In the picture, the battery is charged, which means the negative electrode is filled with positively charged lithium ions.
A study led by Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, has shown that carbon fibres can work as battery electrodes, storing energy directly. This opens up new opportunities for structural batteries, where the carbon fibre becomes part of the energy system. The use of this type of multifunctional material
Laser that heats the air over 1,500 degrees Celsius and produces a shock wave to expel sideways the suspended water droplets that make up the cloud.
We live in an age of long-range information, transmitted either by underground optical fibre or by radio frequency from satellites. But the throughput today is so great that radio frequency is no longer enough in itself. Research is turning towards the use of lasers which, although technically complex, have
Businesses spent a total of $375 billion on research and development (R&D) performance in the United States in 2016, an increase of 5.3 percent from 2015. Funding from companies' own sources was $318 billion in 2016, an increase of 7 percent from 2015. Funding from other sources was $57 billion in 2016 and
KEMP, Texas -- Larson Electronics announced the release of a hazardous area LED pivoting light fixture. This 4-foot 2-lamp LED light fixture is U.S./Canada U.L. approved Class I Division 2 Groups A, B, C and D and is UL 1598A listed. This fixture produces 7,000 total lumens, operates on 347V to 480V AC without
The hot-press procedure, developed at Drexel, melts sulfur into the nanofiber mats in a slightly pressurized, 140-degree Celsius environment -- eliminating the need for time-consuming processing that uses a mix of toxic chemicals, while improving the cathode's ability to hold a charge after long periods of use.
In late July of 2008 a British solar plane set an unofficial flight-endurance record by remaining aloft for more than three days straight. Lithium-sulfur batteries emerged as one of the great technological advances that enabled the flight -powering the plane overnight with efficiency unmatched by the top batteries
