Easily Assemble Any Material or Fastener

Posted February 16, 2017 12:00 AM by SavvyExacta

Assembling car bodies the "old" way was easy: you just had to weld the steel base to the chassis. With changing materials (lighter weight materials such as aluminum, carbon fiber, etc.), welding is often impossible and riveting requires access to the fastener location from both sides.

Replacing Cement with Geopolymers May Cut Emissions

Posted January 27, 2017 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Cement production is responsible for more than 5% of global yearly CO2 release, university researchers say. Substituting geopolymers for cement could lead to reductions in atmospheric carbon dioxide. These materials also may be more resistant than cement to high temperatures and chemicals.
