Industry still wasting too much energy – IEX posts strongly rising demand from abroad – German Government to promote industrial insulation for the first time

05.12.16 - The industry is still producing too much “hot air” when it comes to the thermal insulation of its operational facilities and – it could substantially reduce its energy consumption. This is the result the TIPCHECK Report submitted by the European Industrial Insulation Association and Foundation produced and in which 180 industrial plants across Europe were […] The post Industry still wasting too much energy – IEX posts strongly rising demand from abroad – German Government to promote industrial insulation for the first time appeared first on materialsreview.

Industrie verschwendet noch immer zu viel Energie – IEX mit stark steigender Nachfrage aus dem Ausland – Bundesregierung fördert erstmals technische Isolierung

05.12.16 - Die Industrie produziert noch immer zu viel „heiße Luft“, wenn es um die thermische Dämmung ihrer Betriebsanlagen geht; und sie könnte ihren Energieverbrauch deutlich senken. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt der vom europäischen Verband und der Stiftung für Industrie-Isolierung vorgelegte TIPCHECK-Report, im Zuge dessen europaweit 180 Industrieanlagen einem Energie-Audit unterzogen wurden. „Allein für die untersuchten Anlagen […] The post Industrie verschwendet noch immer zu viel Energie – IEX mit stark steigender Nachfrage aus dem Ausland – Bundesregierung fördert erstmals technische Isolierung appeared first on materialsreview.

Engineer Designs Composite Aircraft with Detachable Cabin 

27.01.16 - Ukrainian engineer Vladimir Tatarenko showcased an idea for a detachable aircraft cabin he believes could save lives during a crash landing. In the event of a crash, the plane’s cabin would detach from the rest of the plane and safely land on the ground or water using parachutes, boosters and rubber tubes which would automatically inflate on water. The design also includes a storage space that holds passengers’ luggage underneath the cabin to ensure no luggage is lost in the event the plane needs to detach. “Surviving a plane crash is possible,” said Tatarenko. “While aircraft engineers all over the world are trying to make planes safer, they can do nothing about the human factor.” I know this is his quote but maybe we can fix the grammar? According to Tatarenko, a critical component to making the design work is the use of composites. “The existing technology of using Kevlar and carbon composites for [the plane’s] fuselage, wings, flaps, spoilers, ailerons, tail will be used during the design,” said Tatarenko. “It allows to partly compensate the weight of parachute system.” Last year, Tatarenko received patents for a similar invention with an escape capsule system that would rescue passengers on board. The capsule, just like the new one, would be released through a rear hatch at the tail end of the plane within seconds of an emergency situation. However, the idea has plenty of critics. Some argue that the idea is not cost effective given how expensive the implementation of the technology would be to prevent a situation that is not common. Is it worth investing a lot of money in detachable technology if there were (according to Daily Mail) only 111 plane crashes in 2014? Others argue that the design itself still needs work, as it does not include a contingency plan for the pilots themselves.
