Russia is working on 72-meter sub — 21 knots, low radar signature

Posted by in categories: energy, engineering, military

Russia’s diversified design bureau for marine engineering, Rubin, unveiled a project for a modified version of a submarine that the company is working on.


MOSCOW, ($1=76.79 Russian Rubles) — Russia’s diversified design bureau for marine engineering, Rubin, has unveiled a project for a modified version of the Guardian submarine that the company is working on. Rubin is the greatest designer of Soviet and Russian submarines – 85% of them are the work of the company.

According to preliminary data, the submarine is designed to reach a maximum speed of 21 knots. If it travels at 10 knots, it can travel a maximum of 4,000 miles. Ruby achieves this speed by integrating a more powerful power plant, as well as reducing the resistance to movement in the surface position.

Tesla plans to build new design center in Beijing this year, Chinese government says

Posted by in categories: engineering, government, sustainability, transportation

Tesla is planning to build its new design center in Beijing later this year, according to a new document released by the Chinese government.

Shortly after announcing Gigafactory Shanghai, Tesla made it clear that it not only wants to tap into China’s incredible capacity in manufacturing, but it also wants to take advantage of the country’s incredible engineering and design talent.

In early 2020, Tesla announced plans to establish a new R&D center and a new design center in China to build “a Chinese-style” electric car.

Moon develops targeted, reliable, long-lasting kill switch

Posted by in categories: biological, chemistry, engineering, genetics, space

Tae Seok Moon, associate professor of energy, environmental and chemical engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, has taken a big step forward in his quest to design a modular, genetically engineered kill switch that integrates into any genetically engineered microbe, causing it to self-destruct under certain defined conditions.

His research was published Feb. 3 in the journal Nature Communications.

This bizarre looking helmet can create better brain scans

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, engineering, mathematics, neuroscience

It may look like a bizarre bike helmet, or a piece of equipment found in Doc Brown’s lab in Back to the Future, yet this gadget made of plastic and copper wire is a technological breakthrough with the potential to revolutionize medical imaging. Despite its playful look, the device is actually a metamaterial, packing in a ton of physics, engineering, and mathematical know-how.

It was developed by Xin Zhang, a College of Engineering professor of mechanical engineering, and her team of scientists at BU’s Photonics Center. They’re experts in , a type of engineered structure created from small unit cells that might be unspectacular alone, but when grouped together in a precise way, get new superpowers not found in nature. Metamaterials, for instance, can bend, absorb, or manipulate waves—such as electromagnetic waves, , or radio waves. Each unit cell, also called a resonator, is typically arranged in a in rows and columns; they can be designed in different sizes and shapes, and placed at different orientations, depending on which waves they’re designed to influence.

Metamaterials can have many novel functions. Zhang, who is also a professor of electrical and computer engineering, , and and engineering, has designed an acoustic metamaterial that blocks sound without stopping airflow (imagine quieter jet engines and air conditioners) and a magnetic metamaterial that can improve the quality of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines used for medical diagnosis.

Electrostatic engineering gets the lead out for faster batteries

Posted by in categories: energy, engineering, transportation

Conventional batteries are a lot like camels. They’re great for storage and transportation, but they’re not exactly speedy.

For technologies that require a fast discharge of energy, such as heart defibrillators, alternative materials are often used; foremost among them, antiferroelectrics.

There is only a handful of known antiferroelectric materials, and most of them contain lead, so they aren’t safe enough for everyday applications. Now, a Cornell-led collaboration has discovered a new approach for making a lead-free antiferroelectric that performs as well as its toxic relatives.
