  • Opening communication lines between propulsion...
    on October 11, 2018 at 5:34 pm

    On the runway to more fuel-efficient aircraft, one alternative propulsion scheme being explored is an array of electrically powered ducted fans. The fans are distributed across the wing span or integrated into the wing. Researchers have gained new understanding in how the fans and especially their precise placement on the aircraft can affect the cross-conversation between propulsion and the airflow around the wing. […]

    Corrosion of metals is an age-old problem, but they are normally protected from catastrophic damage by naturally forming, super-thin oxide films. Traditionally, these protective films have been viewed as simple oxides of well-anticipated compounds. Now researchers have found the protective films develop new structures and compositions that depend on how fast the oxide film grows. […]
