Originally published in 1995, now updated and expanded with new specifications, this seminal work focuses on the development of Allied aircraft engines that helped turn the tide of World War II.
While GAC member companies have led the industry in introducing alternative propulsion technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the GAC supports “de-carbonizing” transportation, the organization says that there has been no modelling done to gauge the impact on the Canadian automotive sector.
Demand for high-performance plastics (HPPs) is up across the aerospace industry, driven by such key trends as growing performance requirements, increased use of additive manufacturing or 3D printing, supply chain globalization, and tightening environmental regulations. Growing passenger traffic coupled with the need to reduce emissions – being accomplished through lightweighting, engine downsizing, and vehicle electrification – present opportunities for HPPs, research analysts at Frost & Sullivan in San Antonio, Texas, explain.
In reviewing Obama-era vehicle-emissions standards dictated aggressive fuel-economy standards for the years 2022-2025, the U.S. EPA said that in light of current market conditions and consumer preferences, the regulations should be revised.
SAE International has published a new recommended practice for assessing the amount of nonvolatile particulate matter (nvPM) that exits aircraft engine exhaust nozzles – ARP6481: Procedure for the Calculation of Non-Volatile Particulate Matter Sampling and Measurement System Losses and System Loss Correction Factors
Just down the road from SAE International’s headquarters in Warrendale, Pennsylvania, Mark Sokalski has been quietly working out how to maximize piston-driven engine efficiency – with an internal combustion engine mechanism that doesn’t follow the norm.
