Engineers Design Fluid Inspired Material Coating for Metals

Engineers have developed a new coating strategy for metal that self-heals within seconds when scratched, scraped, or cracked. The novel material could prevent these tiny defects from turning into localized corrosion, which can cause major structures to fail. It’s hard to believe that a tiny crack could take down a gigantic metal structure. But sometimes bridges collapse, pipelines rupture, and fuselages detach from airplanes due to hard-to-detect corrosion in tiny cracks, scratches, and dents. Localized corrosion is extremely dangerous. It is hard to prevent, hard to predict, and hard to detect, but it can lead to catastrophic failure  Engineering team …

Engineers Forge a New Frontier for Solar: Utility Build-Transfer Agreements

Historically, electric utilities in the U.S. have been buyers and sellers, but not producers, of solar energy. Largely due to tax and accounting constraints, vertically integrated, regulated utilities traditionally have entered power purchase agreements (PPAs) to procure solar energy (and wind and other renewable energy) from independent power producers (IPPs), rather than building such projects and including them in their rate base. To many utilities, this has seemed like a lost opportunity; they generally earn a return on the equity invested in power plants, transmission, and distribution lines, but not on power purchased from others. Dramatic reductions in the installed cost …

Net Zero Home

Net Zero: Home Energy Systems

Net Zero energy homes are just like any home except more appropriate in today’s world.   Regular grid-tied homes that are so air-tight, well insulated, and energy-efficient that they produce as much renewable energy as they consume over a year. Occupants virtually receive no energy bill and a carbon-free home.  A Net Zero energy home combines advanced design and superior building systems with energy efficiency and on-site solar panels.   Homes are ultra-comfortable, healthy, quiet, sustainable that is affordable. (1) https://www.glewengineering.com/engineers-organize-smart-homes/ In addition, engineers will work hard toward the development of personalized energy units, manufactured, distributed, and installed inexpensively. One can envision …

Part 1 : Engineers Give Pros and Cons of Double and Triple Pane Windows

ave you decided to invest in replacement windows? What made you finally decide to take the leap? Was it the incredible energy saving benefits new windows offer? If so, you’re not alone. For a typical home, 40% of the annual energy budget goes toward heating and cooling costs, and replacing the windows in your home is great way to keep more of that money in your pocket. Since energy efficiency is such an important fact to consider when getting replacement windows, we are often asked, “How much better are triple pane windows than double pane windows at saving money on …

Hydrogel Adhesive: Healing Wounds

Cuts, scrapes, blisters, burns, splinters, and punctures there are a number of ways broken skin happens, Hydrogel Adhesive helps. Most treatments for skin wounds involve simply placing a barrier over them (usually an adhesive gauze bandage). This keeps it moist, limit pain, and reduces exposure to infectious microbes. A new, scalable approach to speeding up wound healing, developed based on heat-responsive hydrogels. Mechanically active, stretchy, tough, highly adhesive, and antimicrobial, active adhesive dressings (AADs). To close wounds significantly faster than other methods and prevent bacterial growth without additional apparatus or stimuli. https://www.glewengineering.com/engineers-add-new-updates-to-medical-advances-2019/ This technology has the potential use not only …
