Engineers Develop new Technologies 2019 they are on the rise for 2019. Here we highlight some of the hot topics that airports and airlines should keep an eye on in the year to come.
Texture of rusty colorful metal background with a peeling cracked layers of paint. 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, [...]
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 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 [...]
Have 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 [...]
Mechanical Engineers Design Smart Homes What is a Connected Smart Home? A connected Smart Home brings devices and services together for an integrated, autonomous experience that improves a consumer’s life. Connected home experiences include everything from voice-controlled lights, house-cleaning robots, machine learning-enabled security cameras, and WiFi routers that troubleshoot for you. Thanks to decreasing costs and increasing options for connectivity, these smart home devices, sensors, and tools can be interlinked to create real-time, contextual, and smart experiences for consumers. Both Mechanical Engineers and Electrical Engineers design these products for more convenient and enhanced experiences. (https://www.glewengineering.com/engineers-develop-ways-to-ventilate-your-home/ A Smart Home can [...]
Helping the Medical Community – Have a 3D Printer? Medical Face Shields during the Th COVID-19 outbreak continues to expand globally. Information from healthcare organizations say that some distributors have placed certain types of personal protective equipment (PPE) on allocation, therefore, Basing the quantity of Medical Face Shields available to the healthcare organization on previous usage, not projected use. This formula greatly puts the front-line health workers at great risk. Medical Face Shields simple in design, produced and assembled by hobbyists on their own home 3D printers. Searching for a way to help the medical workforce? Already have a 3D [...]

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 [...]
Solar Powered RV - Imagine a Trip Solar Powered RV - Imagine a trip around the country with no budget for fuel! Yes, this is possible now thanks to this impressive motorhome. The RV company has done something people couldn’t even dream of with this Iveco Daily Electric chassis. The Solar Powered RV is perfectly capable of offering you off-grid status. There are solar panels installed, not only on the roof but on each side as well, in total 334 square feet of thin-film solar panels which can deliver up to 3,000 watts of energy. And you don’t even need [...]
Combining new classes of nanomembrane electrodes with flexible electronics and a deep learning algorithm could help disabled people wirelessly control an electric wheelchair, interact with a computer or operate a small robotic vehicle without donning a bulky hair-electrode cap or contending with wires.

Laser Imaging Video Camera Laser Imaging Video Camera, stumbling on something that had not been seen before: a video camera capable of seeing through flames, fog, dust, and virtually any other obscurant, even at night. Put together for a perimeter security system on the border, at a factory or a nuclear power plant, or on a military installation. Security not the original intent of this technology, which ultimately find uses in a number of fields. Conceived a decade prior as a tool that would allow firefighters and other first responders to see through smoke and flames, developed the capability [...]
