Thermoset Components Fabrication Methods: 1. Hand layup method: The method is simple and suitable for simple components. A coat of resin is applied on a tool surface and a layer of mat or fabric reinforcement is placed on the tool surface. The process is repeated till the required thickness of Read more…

What is a Composites material? Composite materials may be defined as materials made of two or more dissimilar materials, brought into adhesive combination by application of heat and pressure over a period of time. The property of composite materials is different from and superior to any of its constituents and Read more…


Reinforced Composite materials moulding methods The use of fibre materials to reinforce plastics is widespread. Injection moulded parts such as water tanks, helmets, trays, ducts etc., In such application the reinforcing material is normally in the form of short rovings (Definition: rovings are long and narrow fibre), mixed with and Read more…


Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells—also called proton exchange membrane fuel cells—deliver high-power density and offer the advantages of low weight and volume, compared with other fuel cells. PEM fuel cells use a solid polymer as an electrolyte and porous carbon electrodes containing a platinum catalyst. They need only hydrogen, Read more…


     QTC is a composite made from micron-sized metallic filler particles (Silicone Rubber) mixed into an elastomeric matrix. Quantum tunnelling composite is a flexible polymer that exhibits extraordinary electrical properties. In its normal state it is a perfect insulator, but when compressed it becomes a more or less perfect conductor Read more…


      The Composite’s properties are mainly influenced by the choice of fibers. Three types of fibres are Glass fibre, Carbon fibre, Aramid fibre. All fibres have generally higher stress capacity than ordinary steel and are linear elastic until failure. The most important properties that differ between the fibre types are Read more…


       The graphene is a substance which has a single-layer crystal lattice of carbon atoms, which is unusual since it is different from all of the materials of its kind. Several researchers have identified a way of making this substance, which allows them to use it in various fields and Read more…


        This Jetpack consists of a built-in gasoline engine driving twin ducted fans which produce sufficient thrust to lift the aircraft and a pilot in vertical takeoff and landing, enabling sustained flight. Jetpack Development: Since the beginning of time man has dreamed of personal flight – the ability to fly Read more…


Artificial photosynthesis is one of the newer ways researchers are exploring to capture the energy of sunlight reaching earth.      Photosynthesis: Photosynthesis is the conversion of sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water into usable fuel and it is typically discussed in relation to plants where the fuel is carbohydrates, proteins, and Read more…


After six years of intensive effort, scientists are reporting development of the first commercially viable Nano generator, a flexible chip that can use body movements — a finger pinch now en route to a pulse beat in the future — to generate electricity. This development represents a milestone toward producing Read more…
