Researchers develop thin heat shield for superfast aircraft — ScienceDaily

The world of aerospace increasingly relies on carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites to build the structures of satellites, rockets and jet aircraft. But the life of those materials is limited by how they handle heat. A team of FAMU-FSU College of Engineering researchers from Florida State University’s High-Performance Materials Institute is developing a design for a heat shield that better protects those extremely fast machines. Their work will be published in the November edition of Carbon. “Right now, our flight…

Army Ants Share Passion for Robotics

The Army Ants helped 22 aspiring engineers in building and programming robots that the campers got to take home with them. The College of Engineering sponsored a full-day robotics camp for underrepresented and economically-disadvantaged youth in central Missouri Oct. 31. Army Ants is made up of local high school students who design robots to complete specific tasks outlined by FIRST Robotics, an organization responsible for putting on regional and national robot competitions in order to build interest in STEM nationwide…

PCB Assembly Services – Screaming Circuits: Buddy the Board Takes a Trip

All of our assembly work for Screaming Circuits takes place right here in Canby, Oregon and most of our blank PCBs are built by Sunstone Circuits, ten miles away, in Mulino, Oregon. But that doesn’t mean that we aren’t a global company. We have engineering, web development and creative services here in Canby, at some of our other North American locations, and in India. Having help on the other side of the world (not exactly on the other side, but…

A Pilot and Software Engineer’s Take on the Boeing 737 Max

As of this writing, the ill-fated Boeing 737 Max series of jetliners is still grounded after two fatal crashes in which the pilots lost a battle with the plane’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation system (MCAS).  The U. S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded the planes last March, and current estimates are that the planes will not be flying again before at least  2020.  This is a huge blow to Boeing and its customers who bought the planes, as billions of dollars…

Gantry: Slack’s Fast-booting Frontend Framework

Photo by SpaceX on Unsplash By Anuj Nair At any given time, Slack has many product teams working on different features. This allows us to build in parallel and quickly release new features reliably. But it also means the architecture of our applications can differ. And it’s not always easy to share the knowledge gained and the tough lessons learned across teams. An important lesson we’ve learned over the last five years of developing Slack is to align on both…

Researchers test human-like robots — ScienceDaily

Army researchers tested ground robots performing military-style exercises, much like Soldier counterparts, at a robotics testing site in Pennsylvania recently as part of a 10-year research project designed to push the research boundaries in robotics and autonomy. RoMan, short for Robotic Manipulator, is a tracked robot that is easily recognized by its robotic arms and hands — necessary appendages to remove heavy objects and other road debris from military vehicles’ paths.What’s harder to detect is the amount of effort that…

Pilot Overload and the Boeing 737 Max Accidents

In the last couple of months, new information about the factors leading to crashes of two Boeing 737 Max aircraft and the loss of 346 lives has emerged.  All such aircraft were grounded indefinitely last March after investigators found that a software glitch combined with faulty data from airspeed indicators to start a chain of events that led to the crashes.  Airline companies around the world have lost millions as their 737 Max fleets sit idle, and Boeing has been…

How Effective are Samsung Security Cameras?

Looking at your home, office or some other place but without the help of a reliable surveillance camera is really difficult! It is advisable to get Samsung’s CCTV cameras letting to notice all that is happening on your premises. Although you probably already know Samsung’s smartphones and TV’s, the reality is that the South Korean technology giant produces almost anything, including monitoring systems, baby monitors, and cameras. Maybe so, but the top contender, it happens that somehow the Samsung SDC-9443BC…

XSEDE Stampede2, ECSS helps simulate shock turbulence interactions — ScienceDaily

This may come as a shock, if you’re moving fast enough. The shock being shock waves. A balloon’s ‘pop’ is shock waves generated by exploded bits of the balloon moving faster than the speed of sound. Supersonic planes generate a much louder sonic ‘boom,’ also from shock waves. Farther out into the cosmos, a collapsing star generates shock waves from particles racing near the speed of light as the star goes supernova. Scientists are using supercomputers to get a better…
