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.
If growing numbers of EV are to be recharged frequently by cable, their use will be severely limited: wireless battery charging is the answer to mobility.
Eduardo Oslé from Airbus tells us about the impact of numerical simulation in aeronautics and comments on how sometimes words manage to express concepts that eventually result in innovation
Principia has conducted bird strike simulations on leading edges and other parts of a number of commercial and military aircraft, both with aluminium alloys and with composite materials.
Competition between the future manufacturers will be based more on the offer of entertainment and connectivity services than on the vehicle itself.
