In recent years, a revolutionary advancement to honeycomb, Hexcel's HexWeb Acousti-Cap noise reducing honeycomb, has enabled aircraft engine designers to achieve superior acoustical performance, including dramatic noise reduction during takeoff and landing without a structural weight penalty.
For instance, around 50% of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner's structure is made up of carbon fiber reinforced polymers as compared to its predecessor Boeing 777 which comprised only 10% of carbon fiber composites in its structural weight The global advanced carbon materials market is highly competitive owing to the presence of large number of players in the value chain.
The battery tends to get the most visibility but there will be significant opportunities for other components such as pressings for motor laminations, reducing structural weight, cooling systems and so on.
Together with variables representing syntactic function, register, and weight, three issues; (1) occurrence/non-occurrence (2) structural type and (3) structural weight, all of which insightfully relate to the structure of postmodifier are comprehensively examined, in the light of structural complexity/simplicity characterising outer and expanding Englishes.
Its growing popularity for various industrial application can be attributed to significant reduction in structural weight, fuel consumption and cost savings.
Compared with Q420S, 6061 T6 type can almost reduce structural weight by half, but the deflection increases about 65.8%.
The LEAP-1Cs composite O-Duct thrust reverser was developed by Nexcelle, with its unique one-piece configuration contributing to a reduced overall structural weight and larger acoustic treatment surface.
Amcor said its collaboration with Solvay continues to expand and enhance options for solar energy by -1 eliminating the structural weight limitations and rigidity of glass, and thereby improving the integration of PV modules into complex shapes.
Generally, the objective of topology optimization is to reduce the structural weight by adjusting the design variables under a set of predefined constraints imposed according to a selected code of design practice.
On average, it reduces structural weight 20-40 percent by letting designers and engineers try different composites and orientations, virtually place parts under virtual loads, and see where stresses exist on those parts.
Previous research efforts on lightweighting heavy-duty trailers have shown that a reduction of about 50% in the structural weight of a 14.63 m (48 ft) long heavy trailer will improve its fuel consumption by about 6% [6, 7].
Meanwhile, factors such as structural weight, floatation, wind loads, and earthquake loads are guarded against by structural engineers who design the tension to move from the building, downwards into the ground.
