Engineering students devise low-cost wind tunnel - The Times of India - 0 views

  •  
    "A wind tunnel is used to study the influence of wind on moving bodies. The structure creates a near similar wind conditions as prevalent in nature when bodies move at high velocity. For this purpose, scaled down models of automobiles or aircrafts are kept inside the tunnel and high velocity airstreams are created and forces acting on the model are analyzed using suitable force measuring devices. Such measurements help in refining the body design"

Robot Fly Mimics Insect Flight, Hovers With Ultrathin Wings (VIDEO) - 0 views

  •  
    " The device uses layers of ultrathin materials that can make its wings flap 120 times a second, which is on a par with a housefly's flapping rate. This "required tremendous innovation in design and fabrication techniques", he adds. The robot's wings are composed of thin polyester films reinforced with carbon fibre ribs and its 'muscles' are made from piezoelectric crystals, which shrink or stretch depending on the voltage applied to them."

    The Aussies score again. Did You Know There's An Entire Type Of Aircraft That Relies On The Ground Effect To Stay Aloft? Take a look...I can see many, many coastal and inland sea applications and ferries. Only 1.5 cents per passenger mile is very cheap and it uses a chevy engine!!!! Its Chevy engine is similar to our Caprice 396 we had for 30 years as a family car.
