Composite repair system

  • 13-Oct-2009 08:39 EDT

The RepairClave from Heatcon Composite Systems gives repair facilities the ability to perform positive pressure repairs without the investment of an autoclave. Designed primarily for repair applications, the RepairClave keeps the system as simple as possible while still meeting required operational parameters. The first experimental unit was sized to accommodate the inboard flaps on the Boeing 737. Sizes of units already produced include a 10-ft x 36-in diameter prototype, a 30-ft x 36-in diameter system installed in South America, a 3-ft x 48-in diameter system used in the research of composite materials, and a 30-ft x 48-in diameter unit.

Researchers from Iowa State University are expanding fundamental materials studies into research and development of new, all-solid-state technology for batteries.
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.
