LONDON, Oct. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- North America's hydraulic fracturing market is all set to reach $51.93 billion mark by 2020, up from $41.96 billion in 2013, with nearly 4 per cent CAGR.Hydraulic fracturing is an essential technology for hydrocarbon extraction from both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. It is a procedure that can increase the flow of oil or gas from a well. It is done by pumping liquids down a well into subsurface rock units under pressures that are high...

Mike Williams, Rice University Rice, Georgia Tech experiments determine real-world limits of two-dimensional carbon There is no disputing graphene is strong. But new research by Rice University and the Georgia Institute of Technology should prompt manufacturers to look a little deeper as they consider the miracle material for applications. The atom-thick sheet of carbon discovered this century is touted not just for its electrical properties but also for its physical strength and...

When deciding what materials to use in building something, determining how those materials respond to stress and strain is often the first task. A material’s macroscopic, or bulk, properties in this area — whether it can spring back into shape, for example — is generally the product of what is happening on a microscopic scale. When stress causes a material’s constituent molecules to rearrange in a way such that they can't go back to their original positions, it is known as “plastic...

From the production of tougher, more durable smart phones and other electronic devices, to a wider variety of longer lasting biomedical implants, bulk metallic glasses are poised to be  mainstay materials for the 21st Century. Featuring a non-crystalline amorphous structure, bulk metallic glasses can be as strong or even stronger than steel, as malleable as plastics,  conduct electricity and resist corrosion. These materials would seem to have it all save for one problem: they are often...

Scientists Use 3D Printer To Print Artificial Bone
2013-06-17 18:09:42

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Instead of looking to simply replace natural structures through artificial means, a group of MIT materials scientists are looking to create nature-inspired structures that actually outperform the original. Using 3D printing technology, MIT scientists have developed a process that allows them to turn designs into physical fracture-resistant, bone-like structures within just a few hours, according to their report in the...
