From the Nano Engine to the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, some of the most overlooked mechanical engineering marvels of the world almost defy the laws of physics and are true wonders that drive innovation and impact the lives of many.Yet, behind every mechanical engineering marvel is a successful mechanical engineer or mechanist.
Penn engineers have developed a & 34;self-healing& 34; metal. While we& 39;re not about to see self-regeneration as impressive as Marvel& 39;s Wolverine, the findings could signal a big step in the field of mechanical engineering.The engineers call their technique & 34;healing& 34; as it shows real similarities to the healing process of bones - our bodies get energy from an external source, i.
The First World War would claim the lives of millions of soldiers and civilians. For those who survived but were horribly disfigured some were lucky enough to be given tailored face masks to help their rehabilitation back into civilian life.But these & 39;lucky& 39; few were not the norm. Many tens of thousands more would spend the rest of their lives constantly reminded of their time on the front.
The listening system for hearing infrastructures can be likened to a doctor& 39;s stethoscope.October 22, 2019An academic from Loughborough University has been awarded the Philip Leverhulme Prize. Dr. Alister Smith has been given £100,000 to keep developing underground monitoring systems that can hear when infrastructures are deteriorating.
Bit Error Rate Definition & Tutorial Includes:BER basicsBER testingBit Error Rate, BER is used as an important parameter in characterising the performance of data channels.When transmitting data from one point to another, either over a radio/ wireless link or a wired telecommunications link, the key parameter is how many errors will appear in the data that appears at the remote end.
The facility’s design language offers visitors the exciting promise of commercial space travel.August 17, 2019The days of fully-accessible commercial space travel are right around the corner. Your future son or daughter could potentially travel to space the same way you might buy a ticket for a long summer holiday.
