Building Boeing’s beams

  • 30-Jun-2008 08:06 EDT

Boeing entered into an agreement with India-based TAL Manufacturing Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Motors, for manufacturing structural components for the 787 Dreamliner program. Under the agreement, TAL will build floor beams for the 787 using new technology with advanced titanium and composite materials. The floor beams will be produced at TAL’s new facility in Nagpur, India, and then transported to Boeing partners in Japan, Italy, and the U.S. for further assembly.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
