Nearly almost any automobile / truck that is currently polluting our environment can be
"fixed" to lower its emissions and reduce its fuel dependency.

The system is clearly illustrated on the video that shows a set of magnets secured to a shaft and two inductors, one on the left and one on the right pushed by an actuator close to the shaft while an electric current is running through the coils making the shaft move, now in the case of an 18 wheeler the electric current can be obtained by solar panels mounted on top of the trailers and when the truck is not in motion the energy generated can be sold to the grid. lets keep ...

My design idea relates to energy engineering and more particularly to the alternative energy technology of getting power from the fundamental forces of nature such as gravity, elasticity and magnetism.

The potential benefits of this design idea is getting renewable energy along with using sunlight, wind, tides, plant growth, and geothermal heat as sources of energy.

My patents AU 2013267055, AU 2014200321 and AU 2014201879 describe a universal method for converting permanent physical forces like gravity force, spring force or the force of permanent magnets into work and energy. The main element of the design in the engines, carrying out a force conversion is toroidal mechanical construction described in detail here http://www.ipaustralia.com.au/applicant/zenin-vladimir-mr/patents/AU2014240249/. Direct conversion of ...

Since its invention by Otto Bayer in 1937 to create a fiber that could compete with nylon, polyurethane (PU) has been widely used worldwide in the production of foams, rubbers, and protective coatings or sealants. polyurethane is a macromolecule or polymer formed by reaction of two precursors, a polyol and a diisocyanate.

Historically, polyols (organic compounds with several hydroxyl groups) and diisocyanates (organic compounds with two isocyanate groups) used as precursors to produce polyurethane are currently derived from petrochemicals (oil and natural gas). The production of these petrochemicals have irreversible environmental effects leading to the need for establishing a new model of industrial development based on environmental and social sustainability. This new industrial development model seeks alternative ...

Harvesting energy efficiently is of paramount importance to maximize energy production efficiency. In order to produce energy freely I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years to research. The concept is described below.

Basic Construction

This concept consists of one outer stator and two concentric rotors. There are permanent U-magnets on outer stator. There are coil wound straight (bar) electromagnets on outer rotor; and there are permanent U-magnets on inner rotor. One U-magnet on outer stator and two straight electromagnets on outer rotor and one U-magnet on inner rotor forms a magnetic circuit.

Inner rotor and outer rotor are connected through gears as shown in figure.

Gears are connected in such a way that when inner ...

Overview:
EV-ICE (Electric Vehicle – Internal Combustion Engine) is an electrical system that propels loaded Heavy/Medium-Duty Trucks at speeds up to 24 MPH. In EV mode, only the electric motor runs. This eliminates highly inefficient low-speed diesel engine use. Above 24 MPH, the system reverts seamlessly to the diesel ICE mode while taking advantage of more efficient diesel combustion at higher speeds. While in idle, creep, reverse (and driving in congested areas), the truck operates with the diesel engine off. Fuel savings and emissions are improved 25%. While in EV, the trucks comfort systems operate using the electric motor. EV-ICE can be retrofitted or installed by OEM.

Problem Solving:
Diesel trucks represent about 5% of US highway traffic but ...

ExoHab is a high-performance, sustainability ecosystem for space and Earth. The ExoHab concept is an open, plug-and-play framework for small, standalone space habitats or networks of habitats and work facilities.

At a hardware level, the ExoHab ecosystem would be built around 6.1 meter long, pressurized shells that are based upon the ISS multi-purpose logistics module (MPLM). The MPLM is space-tested hardware that is already compatible with existing space systems. The MPLM is relatively small, so that it can be launched on several rockets including the SpaceX Falcon 9 (or Heavy Thrust version for a highly loaded module).

A baseline Nexus module serves as a core habitat. Nexus can support 2 to 3 persons. It includes food, sleep and hygiene ...

A system generating electricity using External Magnetic Field (ExMF); based on the Universal Energies (UE), derived from the new fundamental physics (http://exmfpropulsions.com), is shown in Fig.1, the system composed of a battery 1, feeding electric current through Control Unit 2, to a DC electric motor 3, and a solenoid 4, which produced Rotating Low Magnetic Field (LMF) 5, the LMF interacts with electrons, ionized by ionizer 6, causing electrons to gyrates in orbits around the LMF producing ExMF per unit orbit 7, the small orbit of gyration with intense ExMF produced Cyclotron Radiation in form of Auroral Light 8, the total ExMF produced by orbital electrons 7, produced Intense External Magnetic Field (I-ExMF) 9, all of which are rotating ...

The windmill is a standard green energy conversion system that uses the mechanical input produced by blades that capture the surrounding wind currents, redirecting them in order to create a rotational force that then turns a shaft connected to a generator that produces electrical current. Most often, windmills generate their electricity using a permanent magnet machine, i.e. generator. Standard permanent magnet machines used in industry involve different variations of a rotor stator combination that allow for the production of either a mechanical output (if the input to the system is electrically driven) or an electrical output (if the input to the system is mechanically driven). Research done in the industry of electrical energy production has allowed for overall improvements ...

Nowadays renewable energy is expanding more and more in spite of fossil based one. But all of them are subject to limitations and constraints when applied alone. So considerable efforts aim to integrate different energy sources, as hybrid and renewables together, to overcome this issue. This invention overcomes all of these issues, by implementing a new concept energy generator, which is capable of developing energy up to 75kW for a group of homes, regardless of renewable or fossil sources. As given in the picture, the invention integrates a starting battery associated to a Ultracap Pack, connected to a buck-boost DC/DC converter/regulator. This DC/DC converter is connected to a newest Hexacoil Resonator Pack (HRP). The HRP has a spring-rod in ...

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 or clay) blocks are connected, rather than with the usual mortar layers, by means of recycled-plastic joints. A comparison is ...
