    AEROELASTIC TAILORING

    Elastic couplings, which are the result of the specific lay-up and fibre orientations can have favourable influences on the aeroelastic behaviour of the aero-structures.

    How a Composite laminate is fabricated?

    Oh this is how it is done huh...Fascinating....
  • 13 March 2013

    DID YOU KNOW !!

    The piezoelectric phenomenon was first discovered in some solids in 1880 by the Curie brothers ~Curie and Curie 1880!.Used in structural applications,piezoelectric materials provide the capability of selfmonitoring and self-controlling.

    Composite Baseball bat !!

    Composite baseball bats have become the go-to bats for many Little League and high school baseball players for just those reasons. But,they were banned by the NCAA in 2009 due to “performance improvements” that go “above the standards set by the NCAA.”

    Static Wicks

    Static discharge wicks are high electrical resistance devices which controls the corona discharge into the atmosphere, isolating noise and preventing it from interfering with aircraft communication equipment.

    Meeting with Expert !!

    Had a good going with Technical Expert meeting today !! Thanks to our mentor Cécile DEPETRIS and Technical expert Krzysztof for sharing their valuable time and knowledge with us !! :)
  • 08 March 2013

    Interesting Fact !!!

    Glycol is used to de-ice runways so that snow and ice don’t get into the engines of the planes.

    Piezoelectric technology in Tennis Racquets ???

    A microchip placed in the handle supplies voltage to the fibers and increase the stiffness of the frame giving more power and control.

    DID YOU KNOW !!

    The A380 holds 81900 gallons of fuel weighing 560 tons. It burns 17% less fuel than other large airplanes. It consumes 4 liter of fuel in 100km per passenger.

    MEETING TODAY AT 14:00

    Let's plan to meet today in ILB at 14:00 to discuss about the key points to be discussed in tomorrow's meeting with Airbus Expert.
  • 07 March 2013

    DID YOU KNOW !!

    Vortex generators,row of small metal tabs standing about one inch (2.5cm) tall,help the air follow the shape of the wing during flight by creating tiny whirlwinds over the wing.

    Piezoelectricity in wood..

    Piezoelectric properties of wood are correlated with the degree of crystallinity, where the crystallinity comes from the more orderly arrangement of microfibrils in the cell wall structure.
