Effective and cheap sound-absorbing nanofoam

28-Jun-2018

The breakthrough material reduces a noise level by 100% more efficient comparing to standard analogs, cutting the level of noise transmission by 20-22 dB. The new foam reacts to sound waves not only of high but also of low frequencies, which can damage human health. A young scientist from the Far ...

3-D printing breakthrough for lightweight syntactic foams could help submarines dive deeper

09-Feb-2018

A team of materials scientists at NYU Tandon School of Engineering have developed the first process to 3D print components of syntactic foam, extremely strong and lightweight composites used in vehicles, airplanes, and ships. Their breakthrough holds particular promise for submarines because it ...

A dream of foam

19-Sep-2017

Oktoberfest in Munich is an exciting cultural event, but it is also a source of inspiration for materials scientists and engineers. Not the beer itself, but rather the beer foam is a source of inspiration. A good head of foam -- generally measuring about 1.5 cm and containing an impressive ...

Boron nitride foam soaks up carbon dioxide

Scientists lead effort to make novel 3-D material

18-Aug-2017

Rice University materials scientists have created a light foam from two-dimensional sheets of hexagonal-boron nitride (h-BN) that absorbs carbon dioxide. They discovered freeze-drying h-BN turned it into a macro-scale foam that disintegrates in liquids. But adding a bit of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) ...

Expanding Market: New Report on EPS Foam

17-Jul-2017

The tragic fire catastrophe of the Grenfell Tower in London directed the public attention towards building envelopes. The discussion concerning the safety of facades and insulation material is a challenge especially for manufacturers of EPS, says Oliver Kutsch, CEO of the market research company ...

In Great Shape

22-Feb-2017

In 2015 UC Santa Barbara mechanical engineer and materials scientist Jonathan Berger developed an idea that could change the way people think about high-performance structural materials. Two years later, his concept is paying research dividends. In a letter published in the journal Nature, ...

Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

08-Feb-2017

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being compressed. The plant's hardiness comes from a combination of its hollow, tubular macrostructure and porous microstructure. These ...
