Background and Motivation
The conceptual manufacturing process of Hybrid Single Shot (HSS) has been developed by Clemson Composite Center to enable production of customized hybrid structures in one single operation. The metal-polymer sandwich structures provide superior properties such as high bending inertia, sound and heat insulation, and high energy absorption, which make them attractive for aerospace and recently automotive applications. Conventionally, 3D sandwich structures are produced either through a multi-stage manufacturing process or by forming a prelaminated blank. The former approach is not efficient enough for mass productions and the later one limited the forming geometry due to excessive shear tension and interlayer delamination. Hence, in this work, a new process is introduced in which a 3D sandwich structure ...

Most beverage companies earmark a large percentage of their budget for advertising because all of them know the power of advertisements. Companies use advertisements as part of a marketing program to increase sales of their products and services. Advertising plays a different role at different stages of the marketing process helping to raise awareness of a product or service, generating leads for a sales force or selling directly. In other words, the advertisement can brainwash society into using a specific product.

Coca-Cola audio/video player is an app for android phones and PCs. It does what all the video and music players do. What makes it special is that it plays the video or the audio while advertising the Coca-Cola ...

Plastic waste pollution is an increasingly prevalent environmental issue around the world. Many companies produce plastic waste through their manufacturing processes, and remote or resource-limited environments - isolated island populations, natural disaster locations, theaters of war, and more - continuously bring in plastic products that end up as waste.. Individuals in these remote environments also face the challenge of acquiring manufactured tools and resources. Although additive manufacturing technologies unlock the potential for users to solve complex problems and create insular supply chains, they continue to suffer from barriers such as cost, accessibility, and sustainability.

1-What is the unmet need we are trying to address?

-Kessler syndrome causes the exponential growth in numbers of formation of space debris. The Kessler syndrome causes trouble because of (1)domino effect,(2)feedback runaway exploration that occurs in higher orbits.
-These result in hostile action and collision of this debris with defunct satellites or space stations which results in catastrophic destruction.
-The speed of the space debris particles is like 10 times faster than a bullet so no one cannot get that. Also, the size of the debris is smaller than 1mm, so it may damage optics and solar arrays. So while a spacecraft may survive being hit by tiny debris, such hits can still result in catastrophe and mission ...

There are many types of wastes in the world. The most difficult one to manage is plastic. This is because plastics can easily harm living things because chlorinated plastic can release harmful chemicals into the surrounding soil which can then seep into groundwater or other surrounding water sources and also the ecosystem, the fact they do not decompose easily and many other reasons. In the city, the most plastic wastes include bottled water, fruit or juice boxes, home use chemical packaging and so on. These plastics are Polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) the most widely used plastics in the world. Companies pay garbage collators especially plastic waste collectors lots of money for recycling and this is not an ...

Military organizations and industries use generators and electrical motors in day to day operations. To get the upper hand over adversaries and/or the competition it is best to have the best new tool around, "Forever Fuel." "Forever Fuel" is an Anti-Gravity Engine that reduces electrical needs (loads) for electrical motors up to 40%. If used in reverse it produces up to 40% more power for wind turbine generators.

This new engine uses very strong magnets to create Anti-Gravity. This Anti-Gravity caused by the levitation of magnets creates a force that is 10x the weight of the magnets. The key to this levitation is a curved inclined ramp that contains a special array of magnets that is brought into the ...

According to Chemistry About.com, chewing gum was originally made from tree sap called chicle, a natural rubber, and sometimes various waxes. But After World War II, chemists learned to make synthetic rubber, which came to replace most natural rubber in chewing gum (e.g., polyethylene and polyvinyl acetate). polyvinyl acetate (a type of plastic) is manufactured using vinyl acetate, a chemical shown to cause tumors in lab rats. In fact, in 2008 the Canadian government was so concerned about vinyl acetate used in the production of chewing gum that they added it to a list of substances to be considered toxic. However, according to the article, government regulators were forced to back down due to industry pressure. Where does (plastic) ...

A solar power satellite (SPS) constellation is an impressive way to transform the Sun's radiant energy into electric power when efficiently streamed down to Earth. The generic SPS has long been promoted as a potent solution for the ever increasing global energy demands. It certainly is a non-polluting and independent method of harvesting energy from the Sun's intenst radiation, as against many other terrestrial sources of energy. Conventional concepts of the SPS have all considered a single large satellite to be located in geosynchronous or geostationary orbit (GEO), at distances of 36,000 km. Given the significant power attenuation and loss during transmission that is expected across those distances, such an arrangement is fit to be replaced with a greater ...

Because most kinds of oil are less dense than water, most oil floats on the water surface. It spreads out and is pushed across the water by wind and currents. Most kind of oil can block sunlight below the ocean. This results in no life under and around the area in which any kind of oil spill has taken place. One of the kind of oils that block sunlight in the ocean is an oil that comes from home and factory wastes of oil. Home wastes of oil might seem minor from one house but when you calculate it in city and country level, it is very hard to imagine if all got into the ocean. Separating of the ...

At this point, awareness of plastic is not an issue. The critical point is proposing new ways to replace, manage and dispose of plastic material that is used for a different use. One of the widely used plastics is plastic bottle packaging. This packaging helps plastic bottles be easily manageable for storage and transportation. But as you surely noticed those plastic packaging end up in landfills as they are easy to manufacture.

This project offers a new type of packaging plastic bottles so that plastic packaging will be omitted. This mechanism is very simple less cost and do the task. The device is using hard plastic belt type mechanism to hold the plastic bottles together. Since the bottom part ...
