Smart Materials

                      Smart Materials


Science and technology have made amazing developments in the design of electronics and machinery using standard materials, which do not have particularly special properties (i.e. steel, aluminum, gold). Imagine the range of possibilities, which exist for special materials that have properties scientists can manipulate. Some such materials have the ability to change shape or size simply by adding a little bit of heat, or to change from a liquid to a solid almost instantly when near a magnet; these materials are called smart materials.

SHAPE MEMORY ALLOYS
              
       Shape memory alloys (SMA's) are metals, which exhibit two very unique properties, pseudo-elasticity, and the shape memory effect. Arne Olander first observed these unusual properties in 1938 (Oksuta and Wayman 1998), but not until the 1960's were any serious
research advances made in the field of shape memory alloys. The most effective and widely used alloys include NiTi (Nickel - Titanium), CuZnAl, and CuAlNi.

HOW SHAPE MEMORY ALLOYS WORK

The two unique properties described above are made possible through a solid state phase change, that is a molecular rearrangement, which occurs in the shape memory alloy. Typically when one thinks of a phase change a solid to liquid or liquid to gas change is the first idea that comes to mind. A solid state phase change is similar in that a molecular rearrangement is occurring, but the molecules remain closely packed so that the substance remains a solid. In most shape memory alloys, a temperature change of only about 10°C is necessary to initiate this phase change. The two phases, which occur in shape memory alloys, are Martensite, and Austenite



Martensite, is the relatively soft and easily deformed phase of shape memory alloys, which exists at lower temperatures. The molecular structure in this phase is twinned which is the configuration shown in the middle of Figure .Upon deformation this phase takes on the second form ,on the right. Austenite, the stronger phase of shape memory alloys, occurs at higher temperatures.. The un-deformed Martensite phase is the same size and shape as the cubic Austenite phase on a macroscopic scale, so that no change in size or shape is visible in shape memory alloys until the Martensite is deformed.Image result for smart materialsImage result for smart materials

energy doors


                  Energy Doors

Image result for energy doors


Energy Doors – as the name suggests, doors that can produce electricity. The input is the human energy. The electricity produced can be stored in a battery or can be used directly to provide power to small electrical appliances.
There are two types of energy doors:
1.      Mechanical Energy Doors
2.      Electronic Energy Doors.
The energy door which has gears, flywheels, and an alternator is called mechanical energy doors. The energy door which has lightning piezoelectric components is called as electronic energy doors.
Mechanical Energy doors can be used in public places to produce electricity and electronic energy doors can be used in private buildings, as they produce more electricity than mechanical systems.
The door is connected to a mechanism which has either mechanical components or electronic components. When the door is opened or closed, the given human power, which causes the mechanical motion, is converted into electricity by the alternator or lightning piezoelectric component.
This energy door can be mainly used for powering lighting system using LED’s as they require only small amount of electricity. This reduces the electricity bill and mainly, it reduces the usage of fossil fuels used to produce electricity which cause pollution to Image result for power produce from doorsthe environment.

The main aim of the energy door is to save the environment by providing power using freely available human power without causing any pollution to the environment.Related image

AIR AS A ALTERNATIVE FUEL

                                                       AIR ENGINE
Image result for AIRENGINE
                      The air engine is an emission-free piston engine that uses compressed air as a source of energy.  The expansion of compressed air may be used to drive the pistons in a modified piston engine. Efficiency of operation is gained through the use of environmental heat at normal temperature to warm the otherwise cold expanded air from the storage tank. This non-adiabatic expansion has the potential to greatly increase the efficiency of the machine. The only exhaust is cold air (−15 °C), which could also be used to air condition the car. The source for air is a pressurized carbon-fiber tank. Air is delivered to the engine via a rather conventional injection system. Unique crank design within the engine increases the time during which the air charge is warmed from ambient sources and a two stage process allows improved heat transfer rates

STIRLING ENGINE:


The Stirling engine is a heat engine that is vastly different from an internal combustion engine. Stirling engines have two pistons that create a 90-degree phase angle and two different temperature spaces. The working gas in the engine is perfectly sealed, and doesn't go in and out to the atmosphere. The Stirling engine uses a Stirling cycle, which is unlike the cycles used in normal internal combustion engines

  • The gas used inside Stirling engine never leaves the engine. There are no exhaust valves that vent high-pressure gases as in petrol or diesel engine, and there are no explosions taking place.
  • The Stirling cycle uses external heat source, which could be anything from gasoline to solar energy to heat produced by decaying plants. No combustion takes place inside cylinder of the engine.

WORLDS UN FORGETTABLE DAY

                                        WORLD UN FORGETTABLE BLACK DAY

Image result for nuclear accidents
                   
Yes friends now i want to share unforgettable Japan Nuclear accident ,  surely that day was a another black day of world history,

                              13/3/2011 Monday (4:30a.m.) 

                   A second hydrogen explosion occurred at an earthquake-damaged nuclear reactor north of Toyko Monday. The blast is said to have been caused by a build-up of gas at Fukushima's station's No. 3 reactor

japanese government officals have said, however, that there was no large release of radiation, and that the reactors themselves were not breached. They continue to monitor the situation.

                    In the meantime, Japanese government officials are now estimating the death toll from latest week's earthquake and tsunami could be as high as 10,000, although the official toll is 1,627 dead, 1,720 injured and 1,962 missing. Over 350,000 people are believed to be living in emergency shelters. There are reports from the Kyodo news agency that 2,000 bodies have been recovered on the shores of Miyagi prefecture, where the tsunami hit on Friday.

                  Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan said Monday: 'Our country faces its worst crisis since the end of the war 65 years ago. (But) I'm convinced that the Japanese people, working together, can overcome this' because this is very worst time to save people  climate not co operate the situation

         In my point of view lot of engineers live in this world each and every one responsible for this , because we can change the this type of hazards , we can find new methods to produce electricity otherwise this will definitely happens in future  yesterday japan today may be we or tomorrow  




friends you know this 





Number of Reactors world-wide







if this will continue we never smile even what mistakes done this kids for our mistakes

                                                   In view of the depleting oil reserves and exponential rise in petroleum prices, the search for alternative sources of fuel is very timely and important. The present paper addresses the underlying issues in biodiesel production from biomaterials and sustainable production and supply of first-generation biofuels, especially the one from jatropha. The agencies and research institutions involved in the production of biofuels and the national and international efforts made in this regard are discussed here. There is also a dire need of a step towards large-scale production and supply of second-generation biofuels, 
although in infant stage, to strengthen the world economy in general and Indian economy in particular. However, the production of biofuels are likely to have serious socio-economic implications especially to the lesser developed societies. This needs serious attention from policy makers and public at large.


TYPES OF ALGAE

ABOUT ALGAE:

                                                                 The word algae represent a large group of different organisms from different phylogenetic groups, representing many taxonomic divisions. In general algae can be referred to as plant-like organisms that are usually photosynthetic and aquatic, but do not have true roots, stems, leaves, vascular tissue and have simple reproductive structures. They are distributed worldwide in the sea, in freshwater and in wastewater. Most are microscopic, but some are quite large, e.g. some marine seaweeds that can exceed 50 m in length.       

The unicellular forms are known as microalgae where as the multicellular forms comprise macroalgae.

On an average 95% of energy requirements all over the world are derived from conventional energy sources such as coal, natural gas and Petroleum. It is estimated that these reserves are not going to last for not more than 50 years. Hence comes the problem of energy crisis. In this context of fossil fuel crisis, the importance of alternative fuel research for Internal. Combustion engines needs importance. Vegetable oils – due to their properties being close to diesel fuel, may be a promising alternative for its use in diesel engines. Bio-diesel is non-toxic, biodegradable and renewable fuel with the potential to reduce engine exhaust emissions.

           The idea deals with the usage of raw Jatropha curcas oil as well as blends of varying proportions of Jatropha Methyl Ester (JME) and Diesel in a single cylinder diesel engine with and without thermal barrier coated piston. Significant improvements in engine performance and emission characteristics were observed for JME. The use of JME along with diesel fuel has significantly reduced HC and CO emissions and to reduce NOx emissions Hybrid fuel concept is followed.
