  • Understanding flexible plastic sheeting and its uses

    What is meant when someone mentions “flexible plastic sheeting” ? What kinds of “flexible plastic sheeting” is there? Are there different types? In its simplest terms, the main difference between the different types of plastic is the way their cellular structure, or molecules bond with each other, and how tightly they are formed. Which is the most flexible of them ...

  • 4 main types of polyethylene (plastic used for flexible sheeting)

    In its simplest terms, the main difference between the different types of plastic is the way their cellular structure, or molecules bond with each other, and how tightly they are formed. 1) Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), most common type of plastic sheeting, very flexible, most often from 0.5 mil thick to about 40 mil in flexible sheeting forms. Good conformability to surfaces. ...

  • Soaking up oil spills with nanowires

    Oil spills and other industrial chemical leaks can cause havoc in ecosystems, killing marine and aquatic wildlife and polluting drinking water supplies. New research has developed a way of cleaning up spills using a super-absorbent material, which selectively draws up oil and other organic pollutants, leaving clean water behind. Current methods for cleaning up oil spills have limitations. Many ...

  • Antarctic boulders help sea level predictions

    Boulders (large rocks) emerging from thinning ice in the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) may help improve predictions of likely sea level rises resulting from climate change. Data from rocks found on the remote Amundsen Sea Embayment show that ice thinning, which has progressed at a rate of around 4cm each year for some 14000 years, has accelerated by a factor of 40 to 1.6m per year since the ...

  • SAF water-blocking technology on show at Waterworld Middle East

  • Greenland then and now - what lies beneath the melting ice cap?

    2010 was an exceptional year for Greenland's ice cap. Melting started early and stretched later in the year than usual. Little snow fell to replenish the losses. By the end of the season, much of southern Greenland had set a new record, with melting that lasted 50 days longer than average. An image just released by NASA was assembled from microwave data from the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager ...

  • Ice melting faster everywhere

    From the Arctic sea ice to the Antarctic interior and the mountainous peaks of Peru, Alaska, and Tibet, ice is melting at an alarming rate. The accelerating loss of ice sheets, sea ice, and glaciers is one of the most powerful and striking indicators of a warming climate. The most notable ice loss in recent years has been the shrinking of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean. From the beginning of the ...

  • ASTM A370 - 11a Standard Test Methods and Definitions for Mechanical Testing of Steel Products

    Ductile vs. Brittle Behavior—Body-centered-cubic or ferritic alloys exhibit a significant transition in behavior when impact tested over a range of temperatures. At temperatures above transition, impact specimens fracture by a ductile (usually microvoid coalescence) mechanism, absorbing relatively large amounts of energy. At lower temperatures, they fracture in a brittle (usually ...

  • Rising Sea Levels – The New Reality

    Water may be flowing from the Greenland icecap and into the sea more quickly than anybody expected. It doesn’t mean that global warming has got conspicuously worse: rather, researchers have had to revise their understanding of the intricate physiology of the northern hemisphere’s biggest icecap. Climate calculations Since ...

  • Efficient solar cells from silicon wires

    US researchers have designed a new silicon-based solar cell which uses 100 times less silicon than conventional photovoltaic devices. The system relies on the geometry of the silicon being reconfigured from a flat wafer to arrays of tiny silicon rods aligned vertically on the cell. Currently silicon solar cells are fabricated on brittle wafers of silicon around 100-200 micrometres thick. While ...
