A new look at the industrial testing of the hydrogen resistance of metals

The researchers from Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) and Institute of Problems of Mechanical Engineering of the Russian Academy of Sciences studied the distribution of hydrogen in metals in the process of standard testing for hydrogen cracking. They found that there is a surface effect that does not let hydrogen enter the metal. This can Read more about A new look at the industrial testing of the hydrogen resistance of metals[…]

renewable energy

Solar thermal, geothermal, photovoltaic – what form of energy supply is most suitable for a particular municipality?

Representatives of smaller communities are overwhelmed by a huge amount of information, which tends to exacerbate existing uncertainty. A new online tool from Fraunhofer is now helping to clarify this confusion. The tool calculates the optimal energy mix for each individual case, including funding possibilities available. The transition to a new energy economy is imminent. Read more about Solar thermal, geothermal, photovoltaic – what form of energy supply is most suitable for a particular municipality?[…]

Augmented Reality manuals without any prior knowledge

Using a novel software made in Bochum, paper-based work instructions can be easily translated into Augmented Reality applications. No prior knowledge necessary. Augmented Reality (AR) might render complicated paper-based work instructions for the maintenance or repair of complex machinery obsolete. At present, however, it takes an expert to create the complex AR applications. A novel Read more about Augmented Reality manuals without any prior knowledge[…]

A promising ferroelectric material could bring headphones with better sound and lower power consumption

For a long time, scientists have been investigating so-called ferroelectric materials, which can change their electric polarisation, to enable the development of new data storage options or micro actuators for speakers, for example. However, so far they have been not powerful enough or too unreliable for industrial applications. A promising ferroelectric material, discovered by materials Read more about A promising ferroelectric material could bring headphones with better sound and lower power consumption[…]

New solutions for power plant noise emissions

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and the technology group Wärtsilä have completed a three-year project funded by Business Finland, which created new solutions for power plant noise emissions. New solutions can reduce a power plant’s noise level by 10–20 decibels. In practice, this means a 90–99% reduction in noise footprint. Increasing the use of Read more about New solutions for power plant noise emissions[…]

How can cities better appeal to tech entrepreneurs?

The presence of technology startups can drive economic growth for their home cities. So how can cities better appeal to entrepreneurs? A new study from the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin shows the connections they can offer matter more than big money. The research shows that today’s successful tech Read more about How can cities better appeal to tech entrepreneurs?[…]
