Even with the most efficient engines on the market today a substantial portion of the energy content of fuel is lost via exhaust gases and engine cooling.


Presently, all the coolant control valves (CCV) are used on engine/vehicle applications to precisely control the coolant flow, by using electric actuators. These actuators require electric energy as an input during continuous operation.

ABSTRACT. The result of this work is to get an idea of the technical implementation of the idea of a wheel platform with an articulated frame and an independent suspension system that has the ability to simultaneously fit into sharp turns and overcome significant surface irregularities.

Every year, wildfires destroy important ecosystems as well as valuable properties around the world. The cost of the damage caused by wildfires is estimated in the tens of billions of dollars every year, and the method used to put out these fires are very rudimentary;
