Bamboo houses may be evocative of a distant past, but for researchers at Republic Polytechnic (RP) and the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL), they are also the homes of the future. An interdisciplinary research centre focused on sustainable urbanisation, FCL teamed up with RP last year to work on composite materials for buildings and construction use. By combining bamboo with resin, the two parties ...
The revelations threaten to reopen concerns about the Dreamliner, once branded the ‘aircraft of the future’ by President Barack Obama, but temporarily grounded in 2013 after a series of battery fires.
For Michael Demkowicz, some of the greatest scientific mysteries and major engineering opportunities lie in everyday materials. "Structural materials are sometimes seen as low-tech," he says. "Who thinks about steel, who thinks about aluminum, who thinks about concrete? But those are probably some of the materials we understand the least."

Igus, a global supplier of engineered plastic components headquartered in Cologne, Germany, is going to great lengths—some 100,000 kilometers, in fact—to prove that its dry-running bearings made of advanced composite materials are as good as, or even better than, factory-specified metal and lubricated plastic bearings in automotive applications.

In recent years, the shale revolution has allowed the United States to achieve a level of energy security that would have been thought impossible only a few years ago, while also boosting the labor force through the creation of thousands of direct and indirect jobs.
A new research has revealed the creation of "untethered", autonomous soft robot, which can change shape and walk on four legs without the constraints of a tether.
GE is looking to a new generation of carbon-fiber composites to make the fan blades for its GE9X jet engine. That engine is being developed for the Boeing 777X passenger airplanes that are set to enter service in 2020 and the new blades promise to provide larger, lighter engines with greater fuel efficiency...
