DARING CROSS – THE NEXT GREATEST WONDER OF THE WORLD
Daring Cross is a groundbreaking invention that is both a functional, over-water transportation bridge as well as a tourist attraction and hub for recreation and commerce. Dating Cross borrows from a basic, elementary engineering concept: the seesaw. Yet it will span the New York Harbor between Manhattan and Governors Island and allow passengers to do the same. Once completed it would be the tallest man-made structure in the world when it is in the full, upright position.
Daring Cross consists of two gigantic See-Saw-like structures, each carrying a passenger ...
Absences of permanent magnets, high fault tolerant, low cost and competitive weight, are some of the key features of the Linear Switched Reluctance Motor, hereafter LSRM. The aim of this project is to develop an LSRM drive system for mass rapid transit system (MRTS). Replacing the conventional wheel based transit system with linear motion technology will lead to simplification of the MRTS technology. The four quadrant performance and benefits of MRTS will be studied with a prototype small scale design.
The comparison of this new technology with the conventional linear machines such as linear induction motor (LIM) and ...

Ancillary loads in vehicles are necessary for passengers and to regulates vehicular operations. They are independent of vehicle speeds but show-up as a constant power usage to perform duties. For instance, electric vehicles regulate traction battery operating temperature irrespective of driving style in all weather conditions only rely on traction battery as their sole energy source reduces electric vehicle mileage covered per charge.
Likewise there use in fossil-fuels run vehicles entails an increase fuel consumption also reduces miles per gallon -mpg rating and exhausts emit.
Todate auto-giants have developed techniques meant to minimize power consumption by the ...

Our electromagnetic variable flow control valve is a very efficient, cheap to make, reliable and provides an outstanding performance including instant response and fail-safe mode which are critical for transport fuel systems supplying jet, diesel, diesel-gas and other types of engines which use fluidic fuels.
There are three main systems for variable control of fluid flow currently available to the market: a) modulated solenoid valves, b) needle spool valves and c) rotational valves with different types of actuation. Bulky design, slow response, complex electronics, parts’ wear and inconsistency of the output can be main disadvantages of some of ...

This is a program designed to introduce Electric Vehicle Technology to Trainees in an Auto Service Shop environment. They will learn all aspects of building, servicing, and repairing electric vehicles (EV) by retrofitting an EV drive train into an existing production (used) vehicle. The trainees will work in small teams in the Shop and Training room with curriculum supporting electric vehicle theory and construction. This program will teach the advantages of using an electric drive train, including cost savings, environmental impact, and ease of use. The program includes background theory on electric vehicle systems, including definitions ...

Are you fed up with bumps and jerks on the road while travelling in a car?Here is a possible way to control and reduce it effectively.This type of active electromagnetic suspension system promises a smoother ride than the conventional passive suspension system.
This concept discusses the working of dynamically controlled active suspension system based upon the principle of repulsion of two electromagnets as in Fig. 1.
The electromagnetic actuator consists of two electromagnets placed with like poles facing each other.Hence by varying the supply given to these magnets the net effective gap between he magnets is varied.

A tractor-trailer coupling mechanism for a powered tow vehicle and unpowered trailer vehicle which eliminates jack-knifing. The coupling includes at least one extension or more between the tractor and the trailer which slides into a receptor channel in the powered vehicle, with a locking arrangement at the front of the tractor. There are alternate attachments, so that the tractor and the trailer are fixedly connected to each other as a single chassis vehicle, making the tractor and the trailer operate as one unit.
This unique patented invention will replace today's loose hitch or fifth wheel conventional arrangement. By totally ...

ESB, Emergency Starting Battery VS (Vehicle Series)
ESB, means ‘’Emergency Starting Battery.” A new manufacturing innovation in the battery field. A very promising proposal which will offer more safety and reliability to the automotive world.
An innovation which will insure you reach your destination safely. ESB can be used mainly as an alternative (saving) back-up emergency starting battery, which is installed and directly connected to the vehicle’s electrical power system. It is a battery that will get you out of a difficult situation and will start your engine when the main battery will just not do it.
The ESB ...
