A "metal foam" that has a similar elasticity to bone could mean a new generation of  biomedical implants that would avoid bone rejection that often results from more rigid implant materials, such as titanium. Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed the metal foam, which is even lighter than solid aluminum and can be made of 100 percent steel or a combination of steel and aluminum. In a new paper, researchers have reported recent findings that, in addition to the...

"Smart" alloy stretches, contracts by almost 10 percent By chance, two friends, out of the 3,000 scientists attending the fall 2006 Materials Research Society meeting in Boston, ran into each other outside the Hynes Convention Center. Peter Mllner and David Dunand had both graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich. Mllner, now at Boise State University, was researching magnetic alloys that can change their shape in the presence of a magnetic field. Meanwhile,...

Metallic foam less expensive to make, leading to more applications Researchers from Northwestern University and Boise State University have figured out how to produce a less expensive shape-shifting "memory" foam, which could lead to more widespread applications of the material, such as in surgical positioning tools and valve mechanisms. David Dunand, the James N. and Margie M. Krebs Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern, has been collaborating with Peter Mllner,...

Aluminum foams have a porous structure that makes them excellent materials to absorb sound, impacts and vibrations. Their metallic nature allows their use as electromagnetic shields and makes them stable at high temperatures. Aluminum foams are recyclable and non contaminant, while offering a combination of physical, mechanical, thermal and acoustic characteristics typical of a homogeneous material. All these characteristics are ideal for diverse and important applications in different...

A special process will make it possible to improve the mechanical, thermal and acoustic properties of foams in the future. This will be of particular benefit to lightweight construction.Mother nature is a smart builder. The cell structure of bones and honeycombs, for example, is particularly resilient and gets by with extremely little material. The process by which these lightweight structures form is just as suitable for foaming metals, plastics and ceramics. These foams have specific...

By Nakajima, Hideo Ide, Takuya Lotus-type porous copper with aligned long cylindrical pores was fabricated by unidirectional solidification in an argon atmosphere. The hydrogen dissolved in molten copper through thermal decomposition of titanium hydride contained in the mold, which then formed hydrogen gas that evolved into the gas pores in the solidified copper. On the other hand, titanium may form oxides in the melt that serve as nucleation sites for insoluble hydrogen. The porosity and...


Word of the Day
cruet
  • A vial or small glass bottle, especially one for holding vinegar, oil, etc.; a caster for liquids.
This word is Middle English in origin, and ultimately comes from the Old French, diminutive of 'crue,' flask.
