While polyethylenes are prone to wrinkles and waves, the flexible LiteEarth synthetic grass and EPDM composite remains in a wrinkle free state. (PRWEB) May 21, 2014 When closing landfills and other earth reclamation projects, waves and wrinkles in the material can lead to long-term structural and environmental damage. Due to its low coefficient of thermal expansion, as well as its unique components, LiteEarth will remain in a wrinkle free state when used in interim or long-term closure...

Strengthening Steel Without Sacrificing Ductility
2014-04-09 16:20:21

Brown University Researchers from Brown University and universities in China have found a simple technique that can strengthen steel without sacrificing ductility. The new technique, described in Nature Communications, could produce steel that performs better in a number of structural applications. Strength and ductility are both crucial material properties, especially in materials used in structural applications. Strength is a measure of how much force is required to cause a material...

Advances In Glass Alloys Lead To Strength, Flexibility
2014-03-04 12:36:16

DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory What do some high-end golf clubs and your living room window have in common? The answer is glass, but in the golf clubs' case it's a specialized glass product, called metallic glass, with the ability to be bent considerably and spring back into its original form. Your windows, as you know, aren't quite as forgiving of a sudden impact, and they shatter – they are brittle, as opposed to ductile, or more flexible products. For the golf clubs, however, a...

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...

NASA JPL Scientist Reflects Last Big Quake In Los Angeles
2014-01-17 09:14:01

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory Twenty years ago this week, in the predawn darkness of Jan. 17, 1994, at five seconds before 4:31 a.m. PST, the ground ruptured violently on a blind thrust fault (a crack in Earth's crust that does not reach the surface) about 11 miles (18 kilometers) beneath Reseda, in California's San Fernando Valley about 20 miles (31 kilometers) northwest of downtown Los Angeles. The resulting magnitude 6.7 earthquake, known as the Northridge earthquake, became the...
