Aero Vitae is a system to solve the interconnected issues of air quality and water purification. We propose using a cascade system of organic digesters and aeroponics to directly dispose of city waste water and airborne particulate. Indirect benefits will be a local cooling effect and oxygen enrichment.
The first stage will be similar to normal water treatment, the separation of the solids from the waste water. The solids will first be treated in a high efficiency methane digester, which will be used to provide a high grade fuel for the facility, and general electricity. After ...
Infill panels and partitions are widely used non-structural elements in reinforced concrete buildings, characterized by a significant seismic vulnerability as testified by disastrous collapses observed during recent earthquakes, for both in-plane and out-of-plane actions. The most advanced building codes foresee mandatory verifications of these elements, both when designing a new building and when assessing the seismic adequacy of an existing one. Moreover, recent evaluations have shown that, after low-intensity earthquakes, damage of non-structural parts strongly influences repair costs for typical multi-storey buildings. In this occasion an innovative concept for infill panels and partitions is presented, in which (either concrete ...
In the last three years, at least 173 people have been killed and more than 700 wounded in 17 ramming attacks around the world (source: http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-tsa-truck-warning-20170505-story.html).
Apart from being a tragedy on an individual level, the attacks also affect public life. The freedom to meet is a cornerstone in a civilized society.
A lot of (often temporary) anti-ram systems and safety barrier are now being installed. Most, if not all, of these systems are aesthetically unpleasing and their sole message is that there are crazy individuals in society!
The proposed "Sit-in" system has the same primary function as the ...

This entry is based on a fundamentally new engine type. The continuous flow rotary vane engine represents a new paradigm in heat engine technology in that positive displacement compression and expansion processes are incorporated in a steady flow, continuous pressure gain combustion design.
Direct heat addition in a thermodynamic gas cycle is the basis for a myriad of engine types including the spark ignition class of engines, compression ignition engines, and continuous burn gas turbines. Spark ignition engines are nearly universally piston engines operating on the Otto cycle or a close derivative. A notable exception is the Wankel rotary ...
The main objective of the system is to display free space, full color high resolution video or still images while simultaneously enabling the user to communicate, to have real time interaction with the visual images. Displaying an image using conventional projectors requires a non-transparent medium, typically screens, walls, or even water, but air, which is transparent, cannot be used .The Project intends to work as a free-space touch screen when connected to a PC by a USB cable. A PC sees the floating displays a pointing device, like a mouse. With the supplied software installed, one can use a ...
Andro-Aqua offers a smart aquarium which will be connected to our app and can be controlled through the app with the app providing important alerts. Through this Andro-Aqua one can feed their important fishes without even being there so now you don't have to worry about feeding your fishes when you are not at home as Andro-Aqua will do it for you. Moreover all the important details of your precious fishes and aquarium will be uploaded to the cloud like temperature , turbidity , water level and filtration mechanism with the dirty water going out of the outlet and ...
It is based on the principle of working of perendev motor, which was deemed impossible because it was a perpetual motion machine and no further development of that motor was continued. Here I am reusing that principle but with certain major changes to it. I have replaced the permanent magnets in the motor using electromagnets, that is it now doesn't contradict the perpetual machine theory.
Working of perendev: it was just based on the fact that like poles of a magnet repel each other, this is the principle used here as well. We proposed to now use the same ...

Riscram™ Rocked Ignited Supersonic Combustor Ramjet. Propulsion system for hypersonic aircraft with supersonic combustor. Mach 0 to 30 - Earth Sea Level to Space Exosphere.
This invention relates to a propulsion system for hypersonic aircraft configured to operate from a fixed point to hypersonic steady state speed and from an altitude at sea level to an altitude which comprises the terrestrial exosphere. More specifically, this invention relates to a propulsion system for hypersonic aircraft having a supersonic combustor which is ignited by a rocket, in other words, a propulsion system for hypersonic aircraft having a supersonic RAM combustor which ...
According to the EPA, every weekend about 54 million Americans mow their lawns, using more than 15,000,000 gallons of gas (that’s more the 800 million annually) and producing tons of air polluting volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides. More than 325,000 gallons (that’s 17,000,000 annually) are spilled just filling them up – that’s more than what was spilled by the Exxon Valdez disaster.
Studies have shown that one gas mower running for an hour emits the same amount of pollutants as eight new cars driving 55 miles in an hour.
Replacing 500 gas mowers with electric or non-powered mowers would ...
The technical solution is based on a flight apparatus with flexible outer shell, powered by the pressure effect described as the Coandă-Effect, apparatus built as an experimental model.
This is an innovative solution for all flying apparatus with vertical take-off, high-speed flying apparatus, or the ones which require a robust and compact body – reentry body – at high altitudes and high speeds. The compact built and propulsion technology also is fit for landing and flying in tight locations, and cause its compact construction it takes less space as far as storage space.
Lenticular vehicles with Coandă Effect are ...
