Your Engineering Inspiration for Thursday 01 October 2020


To discover how law and policy is evolving around engineering, just navigate to the relevant section using the Articles tabs, from the ENGins front page. The death of Heathrow's third runway, changes to government subsidies for onshore windfarms, the basics of US patent law for 3D printing, and the story of a computer algorithm exonerating a man sent to prison for murder comprise a handful of recent articles that reflect the interplay between engineering and society.

Very best,

Salt crystal grows legs to avoid slippery surface
28th September 2020 - Listed in:
Salt crystals can grow tiny legs to lift themselves away from certain hydrophobic surfaces, chemists from the Netherlands were surprised to find. This self-lifting behaviour could have implications for designing building materials that avoid damaging salt crystal growth. White salt...
Stability problems with basic reagents used to make carbon–carbon bonds could be creating inconsistent reaction outcomes across the world, US researchers have discovered. Scientists at Scripps Research in La Jolla and Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) in New Brunswick have shown...
Researchers in South Korea and the US have borrowed a strategy traditionally used in photovoltaic devices to enhance a battery concept that generates an electric current from beta particles. The team behind the work say it is a step towards...
Airbus is forecasting the first zero-emission commercial aircraft will take to the skies by 2035 as it unveiled computer-generated images of hydrogen-powered planes that could pave the way for a carbon-free future. The European aerospace manufacturer on Monday released images...
Tesla’s anticipated “Battery Day” revealed a variety of modest improvements to battery technology which together promise a significant drop in battery cost, a decent increase in battery capacity, and potential big results. As hinted, these improvements are not shipping tomorrow...
