It is possible to make plastically deformable metal rich ceramics with melting temperatures over 2,500C by sintering them under high pressure exceeding 1 GPa up to 2 GPa and high temperature over 2,000C. These deformable ceramics are useful for using as turbine blades for gas turbine engines, mainly for jet engines.
By using these deformable ceramic blades as gas turbine blades, it is possible to make gas turbine engines without cooling blades by air and burning fuels at very high temperatures over 1,800C to reduce fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and engine weight. These characteristics contribute to improvement of environmental conditions and resource saving.
These advantages are available by sintering ceramic powders and metal powders at metal rich ...
EED Creates the Future 2013
Goal: Create an electric energy device (EED) system for usage in transportation like an aircraft or automobile. Cost effective, practical, and dependable. The transportation will operate, except without the necessity of fossil fuel. Meaning the transportation will operated with or without its petrochemical propulsion engine(s). The auto/aircraft will be “driven/flown” safety, nonetheless.
Objectives: The electric energy device (EED) system will connect to an electric source via batteries and charged by solar power. The device will give the aircraft industry a needed “green” energy solution to conserve fuel usage while allowing the auto/aircraft to fully operate. A solution is available for autos. However, none exist for aircrafts. Autos currently allow both electric and gas powered ...
Utilize RTGs (Radioisotopic Thermal Generators) to generate 35-75 KWe during emergencies, for sustaining our critical infrastructure.
Heat from the RTGs would either generate electricity using thermocouples or using heat exchangers to generate a simple steam cycle turbine generator.
The advantages include: Small relative sizes, ease of mobility, long lasting power source.
Primarily for military and security forces, communications, water and wastewater supplies for the ...
The greatest challenge in the field of aviation is to meet the growing concern of depleting fuel source for efficient propulsion of the vehicle. The advanced propulsion techniques look at tackling the challenges with an innovative aero engine.
The aim is to propel an aircraft with a ground based laser beam. The laser tracks the aircraft in flight, directing its energy beam at specially designed photovoltaic cells carried on board to power the plane's propeller. The aircraft doesn’t carry an engine but only a photovoltaic cell. The ground based laser is to be guided to fall on film connected t the photovoltaic cell. The cell in turn generates current proportional to the intensity of the laser beam. The current ...
This project is very simple. I'm 1,84 mt tall and all the time I'm travelling around the word I have to stay a lot of hours seated so, for me, many time this is a big problem and I think it's also a problem for a lot of people. So the simple solution is: a slanted seat like the competition car seat in order to have the center of gravity of the weight on the bottom and not on the legs. Just some degrees (from 10 to 15), to be correctly evaluated, and we could stay seat in a manner super comfortable!! Just remember that is not the padding the solution of confortability but the slanting!! In this way ...
Being able to adjust airfoil profile within flight
-By means of fluid pressure being pumped into hexagonial chambers inside a flexible skin covering a standard wing structure each individual cell has its own valve and pressure sensor fluid being used is jet fuel as to keep total component weight down.
-By creating different pressures in each chamber the shape of the airfoil can be completely changed in flight to most ideal conditions maybe to extend as to reduce the number of flap constructions further reducing weight and building ...
This is a design for a mobile aerial solar power plant (MASP) that uses the large surface area and heavy lifting capabilities of a remote-piloted airship to provide a platform for the collection, storage, and wireless delivery of solar-derived energy to a rectenna unit capable of powering an ad hoc electrical power grid on the ground.
The entire surface of the airship is covered with thin-film photovoltaics to maximize harvesting of sunlight including diffuse sunlight and albedo from the earth’s surface and clouds. The electricity so generated is apportioned by a smart power management system to the airship’s propulsion system, energy storage system, and power beaming system.
The energy storage system is comprised of a closed-system stack of regenerative ...
Plasma propulsion engines which are currently used in space missions use the kinetic energy of the plasma itself to generate the thrust required by the spacecraft. My idea, instead, is of using the plasma and its great heat to replace the heat generated by the combustion of fuel in today's jet engines.
The idea of a full electric combustion chamber for turbojet engines comes from the observation of plasmas generated using a common microwave oven. By concentrating the microwaves, you can create jets of plasma from common air. What began as a scientific hobby has matured me the idea of using this phenomenon for the propulsion of atmospheric aircraft, still enjoying the turbojet engines that are a proven technology. ...
SWAG Aircraft ----------Future is in Nature!
Fastest flying animals have two main advantages upon classical aircraft: Smart shape and flight mechanics.
WHY? They flew millions of years ago ( 160 ) and so have taken out the very best solution for an economic flight.
Energy saving is life insurance!
Trying to apply the right principles of original flight mechanics would be thus probably a must. But, what is the matter ?
I think that applications of my 1992 patent about birds flight mecs are possible in light and very light aviation. WHY,HOW ?
Original flight mechanics demand Variable Geometry (VG) -- which is possible mainly due to modern technology -- for light
aviation (from chute devices to ...
