Liquid Metals Have Different Breaking Points
2012-11-26 08:55:23

DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Mathematical methods developed by a Berkeley Lab researcher help explain why liquid metals have wildly different breaking points, depending on how they are made Metallic glass alloys (or liquid metals) are three times stronger than the best industrial steel, but can be molded into complex shapes with the same ease as plastic. These materials are highly resistant to scratching, denting, shattering and corrosion. So far, they have been used in a...

Helping Aircraft Fly Further Using Hypergravity
2012-11-05 10:24:47

ESA ESA research has helped to develop an aircraft-grade alloy that is twice as light as conventional nickel superalloys while offering equally good properties. The path to creating this alloy required research under all types of gravity. Airlines are always looking for ways to save fuel by cutting down on weight without sacrificing safety. Generally, cutting weight by 1% will save up to 1.5% in fuel. For commercial airlines, this saving quickly adds up, offering cheaper flights and...

Ordered Atoms Found In Glass Materials
2012-10-02 15:10:29

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy´s (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered the underlying order in metallic glasses, which may hold the key to the ability to create new high-tech alloys with specific properties. Glass materials may have a far less randomly arranged structure than formerly thought. Over the years, the ideas of how metallic glasses form have been evolving, from just a random packing, to very small ordered clusters, to realizing that longer range chemical and...

New market research report “The U.S. Steel Industry Outlook” prepared by SBI has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd. The report informs that the direct value of the U.S. steel industry totals more than USD 22 billion in 2012, accounting for nearly 6% of the global steel market. London, UK (PRWEB) September 12, 2012 The steel industry has long been considered the backbone of all U.S. manufacturing because it provides critical materials for other industries,...

Lead is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Pb (L. Plumbum) and atomic number 82. A soft, heavy, toxic and malleable poor metal, lead is bluish white when freshly cut but tarnishes to dull gray when exposed to air. Lead is used in building construction, lead-acid batteries, bullets and shot, and is part of solder, pewter, and fusible alloys. Lead has the highest atomic number of all stable elements. (But see the article on Bismuth, which has a half life so long it can...
