An aircraft tire with airfoils, or an airfoil texture, molded into the sidewall. The idea being that when the tire is exposed to the air stream the airfoil feature would create a lift force that causes the tire to rotate. By creating this feature on a tire, retrofitting existing aircraft would only mean replacing the ...

Commercial Vehicles such as trucks and trailers usually get stuck up in muddy trenches or in snow with one of wheels in the trench and the other on level ground. With an open differential, driver’s effort to pull the vehicle out normally ends up with one wheel, which is rotating still going deeper into the trench. Other differential types such as limited slip, locked, viscous coupling and Torsen differential have been used to overcome this difficulty but with limited success.
Differential is a device, which allows the individual wheels to be driven at different speeds while transmitting torque to ...
Imagine a new airliner design that has slower, safer take off and approach speeds yet can fly at Mach .95 with little drag. Imagine an airliner that takes the engines away from the wings and places them out of the way of bird strikes at the tail of an advanced airfoil body. Imagine a plane that can carry twice the load yet get the same fuel economy as others with 1/2 this load. Now imagine your airfare actually going down.
Not possible? Actually, the design has been around since the early 60's jet age. Propeller designs go back even further. ...

Supersonic flight over land is currently severely restricted because sonic booms created by shock waves disturb people on the ground and can damage property. Innovators at Armstrong Flight Research Center are working to solve this problem through a variety of innovative techniques that measure, characterize, and mitigate sonic booms. One of the most exciting advances involves the use of schlieren photography to capture images of shock waves emanating from aircraft in supersonic flight. In addition to studying shock waves for aircraft, NASA’s schlieren techniques have the potential to aid the understanding of a variety of flow phenomena and air ...

According to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, US paper currency is made up of 75% cotton and 25% linen. That is, there are three-fourths of a pound of cotton in each pound of dollar bills. This same source also informs us that there are 454 bills in a pound of currency.
During Fiscal Year 2009, over six billion bills of all denominations were printed in the United States, consuming 21,476 bales of cotton. The total dollar value of these bills was two hundred and nineteen billion dollars, or $21,290.55 per pound of cotton. The bills taken out of circulation ...

Battery Maximizer is an intelligent, non-intrusive device that clips on the terminals of a rechargeable battery and tells the user its Remaining Battery Life (RBL) by an inbuilt impedance analyzer that continually evaluates the battery’s internal chemistry. It provides consumers with accurate information regarding expected battery lifetime. It reduces the chances of unforeseen battery failure and the numbers of batteries that are prematurely discarded before they fail. As a result, the demand for battery production and correspondingly disposal can be under much better control.
Australia imports annually 7.6 million automotive and industrial battery units and at the same time 6.9 ...
People are bedridden temporary or permanently for many causes. At this time leaving of excreta and urine is vary suffering work to his/her family or nurse maid. At hospital it is displeasure for another person. To avoid this, I have think an idea, of bed with bio-toilet.
For this system, bed to be make folding system at leg side and one feet to 1.5feet from end of leg side to be make empty (sheet less). This gap is need for standing of person before toilet. By keeping gap for man’s standing; next two feet to be folding ...

The project we are putting forward is Behavioral Enhanced Encryption. As now cyber security is a serious threat to our privacy and online data, there us a need to overcome this issue with certain technique so that to an extent we are safe.
Our idea is unique in this aspect and could revolutise the security services that are currently provided by online services. This technique provides an advanced layer of security to safeguard the online accounts.
The principle on how it works is, by using an intuitive AI program that monitors a user's behavior when using any ...

Nowadays people are destroying nature by overusing natural resources and dumping the waste back to the nature. This waste mismanagement contributes drastically to global warming. As the world population is continuously increasing, the accumulation of waste is also becoming a catastrophic problem making relevant management solutions more challenging. The purpose of this project is to make a robot which can perform the very beginning level of waste management. The biggest mistake people make is that they never throw correct waste in the correct dustbin. Basically ‘segregation’ is what we need to focus on, so we will segregate waste into two ...
I think bio chips method is future secure money transfer. First of all I give a definition about the bio chip method. Bio chip method means, one small chip is inserted into the human body (most preferable hand palm) and control electronics equipment like mobile and ATM (for bank money transfer purposes) without using debit and credit cards.
Present technology, small chips are inserted in to human body like artificial legs, brain electrodes and control these through wireless Bluetooth technology. That’s why i think why inserting these bio chips in to human body and control our using different ...
