Present galvanic electrode architecture is characterized by low electrode area specific current density and long battery recharge interval. Factors limiting secondary battery current may be ion exchange between electrodes and/or electron impedance between solid phase coatings and metal current collectors. A new approach to electrode structure replaces contact resistance in the interface separating the solid phase and adjacent metal with alternative conduction pathways to greatly lower resistance to electron flow. Electrodes comprise a cohesive carbon membrane of nonwoven CNT or graphene sheet, loaded with virtually any faradaic or catalytic chemistry as a carbon surface coating or lodged and immobilized ...

First and Last miles “Joining Airports with City Centers.”
Evaluated as suitable by the Ports Council, Awarded the Sustainable FLORIDA 2015 as a Green Building Finalist! We at Sky Train Corporation (STC) offer a system which combines green transit with alternative energy. A wider vehicle that can supply more than subway capacity, with shorter boarding platforms, at double limiting speed, and comfort, and that offers an automated secure luggage handling option.
The mostly elevated beam structure, combined with state-of-the-art energy handling, greatly improves land use, that [entirely eliminates] rail crossing fatalities, and reduces energy consumption by up to 90%. ...

Piece of wood surrounded by mud doesn’t burn easily. In fact, after becoming dry, it will be an insulating layer which more or less prevents burning.
This property will be an perfect solution to stop the spreading fire during forest fire fights. Instead of using water alone, which has proved in different occasions unable to stop intense forest.
Fires the idea is to add fine earth which is an abundant material, to the water pumped, and by surrounding burned trees by mud obtained it will delimit ravaged zone, at a given distance, and create such as barrier more ...

This design is based in more than five years of experimentation, which was originated by our aim to make the High UVI/RH coastal Peruvian desert.
Mars UVC & UVB at surface is assumed to be ~ 10 times Earth and UVA close to our planet values. This is a tremendous energy that can be used for a photochemical job. UVC & UVB flux in Mars is ~ 400 W/M2/day while in Earth is on average 40. For that energy, we use a brine soluble catalyst/susceptor made naturally from the Aloe plant (Aloin) Our discovery is that by decomposing the ...
Vaccines has long been a form of treatment for babies, children and even adults. The inconvenience of pain has formed different reasons to deny treatment and has since caused multiple forms of contagious and curable viruses. The conventional way of administering vaccines has been known to quickly release treatment into the blood vessels and allow the treatment or prevention of the spread of illnesses. Asthma medications are also a preventative solution to relieve strain of breathing and although vaccines and asthma are formed for different solutions the asthma treatments are a sure way of administering medication. Our bodies have adjusted ...

The VaccuVroom is a unique concept that aims at providing a solution for dust-ridden roads while being energy-efficient. This idea can work especially well for countries like India which are constantly battling pollution. The idea behind VaccuVroom is a detachable component for vehicles that sucks up dust while riding or driving. The idea is to harness wind energy being collected when the vehicle moves in a forward direction and convert this into electrical energy to rotate a motor that powers up the vacuum machine. The basic design involves a compartment below the driver's seat which houses the motor along ...

Introducing ValueGauge, the first information display to enable motor vehicle drivers to operate in ways that yield the most VALUE for their TIME and fuel dollar. ValueGauge consists of a microcomputer and electronic display in view of the vehicle operator, and connects to the vehicle Engine Control Module (ECM) to collect vehicle speed and fuel use data. Using the information provided by ValueGauge, we estimate that many drivers may achieve a 10% fuel savings, obtain maximum Value for their Time and fuel dollar, and avoid the true waste of fuel , time, and emissions. ValueGauge has revealed that the ...

Today's teens are exposed to many drugs in today's world. Most of these drugs such as Marijuana and cigarettes are very easy to detect because of the strong odors they give the users. However a method of ingesting drugs called vaping has just come into the scene.
Vaping is incredibly dangerous because of its versatility. Vaping devices can be used to smoke THC (the active chemical in marijuana), nicotine and many other drugs. What makes this so dangerous is that when vaped these drugs are almost undetectable. Vape juices may contain scents but they will not stick on a ...

Adjustment of the compression ratio in a running piston engine as a function of operating conditions is recognized as an effective way to improve both light load efficiency and maximum output torque, and is perhaps the last major efficiency improvement available to piston engines in the quest to reach the 2025 CAFE standard of 54.5 mpg. Mechanical systems for implementing VCR have been proposed and in some cases tested, but none have yet been sufficiently simple and cost effective to reach commercial use. The proposed patent-pending (published as WO2015200432A1) VCR connecting rod is designed to overcome these barriers and ...

Recent innovations in vehicle suspension employs active suspension system which imparts best in class ride and handling of vehicle. Active suspension is a type of automotive suspension that controls the vertical movement of the wheels relative to the chassis or vehicle body with an onboard system, rather than in passive suspension where the movement is being determined entirely by the road surface. These technologies allow car manufacturers to achieve a greater degree of ride quality and car handling by keeping the tires perpendicular to the road in corners, allowing better traction (engineering) and control.
The drawbacks of these active suspensions are high cost, added complication and mass of the ...
