Your Engineering Inspiration for Monday 03 August 2020


Our careful categorisation of news stories and articles makes it easy to quickly narrow down to the engineering specialism of interest.

As an example, to find out how science and engineering is responding to the threat of the new coronavirus, you might head to the Biomedical Engineering section of the site. As is the case with all sections on ENGins, you'll be presented with coverage from disparate, intersecting areas of engineering that you might otherwise miss:

China is using mass surveillance tech to fight new coronavirus spread
Predicting contagion speed
Is a coronavirus vaccine on the way?
How computer scientists are trying to predict the coronavirus's next moves

It's this interdisciplinarity that ENGins is designed to highlight!

Very best,

How Physics Gifted Math With a New Geometry
3rd August 2020 - Listed in:
In the early 1800s, William Rowan Hamilton discovered a new kind of geometric space with nearly magical properties. It encoded motion and mathematics into a single, glinting geometric object. This phenomenon birthed a field called symplectic geometry. Over the last...
Electronic textiles that communicate, sense, or power other devices promise a new era of smart wearable technology. But current e-textiles rely heavily on metals such as gold, silver, and copper, making disposal or recycling difficult. Using nanomaterials such as carbon...
Balloon shaping isn’t just for kids anymore. A team of researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) has designed materials that can control and mold a balloon into pre-programmed shapes. The system uses...
Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have improved the technique of frontal polymerization, where a small amount of heat triggers a moving reaction wave that produces a polymeric material. Their new method allows the creation of a wider...
Chemists make tough plastics recyclable
28th July 2020 - Listed in:
Thermosets, which include epoxies, polyurethanes, and rubber used for tires, are found in many products that have to be durable and heat-resistant, such as cars or electrical appliances. One drawback to these materials is that they typically cannot be easily...
