In the quest towards a sustainable mobility, Formula E is the successor to Formula 1 in terms of innovations that, with time, are being incorporated into everyday electric cars.
Numerical simulation is the best ally of the packaging designer as it allows discarding rapidly and efficiently many wrong designs, prototyping and testing with real possibilities of success.
Vibrations are generally an undesirable by-product of industrial activity or environmental action. All sorts of ill effects are associated with vibrations and, eventually, they tend to result in decreased efficiency, higher maintenance costs, and shortened life of equipment and structures.
The term phygital has been coined recently to refer to the possibility of interacting with people in the physical and digital environments. Can this term promote innovation?
The occurrence of liquefaction has more than one harmful effect: the ground suffers a temporary loss of strength, and densification of the sand will also entail permanent settlements, which will also distress any surviving structures.
An EMP cannot be prevented, but its effects can be minimised with a good understanding of the factors that affect the coupling of the pulse to the electrical systems of the infrastructure.
Water is inherently soft, but don’t let that fool you, in some conditions its power is truly fearsome, as it happens with water hammers.
