BLOOMFIELD, Conn., Jan. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Obama administration wants auto makers to lift the fleet average gas mileage of new cars and trucks to 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. The only way to meet these regulations using conventional piston engines is to reduce vehicle weight. Although cars in all weight classes continue to get safer using new designs and materials, numerous studies as well as common sense indicate that the odds of surviving a collision in a heavy,...

A heat engine measuring only a few micrometers works as well as its larger counterpart, although it splutters What would be a case for the repair shop for a car engine is completely normal for a micro engine. If it sputters, this is caused by the thermal motions of the smallest particles, which interfere with its running. Researchers at the University of Stuttgart and the Stuttgart-based Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems have now observed this with a heat engine on the...
