Engineers Develop new Technologies 2019 they are on the rise for 2019. Here we highlight some of the hot topics that airports and airlines should keep an eye on in the year to come.
Full-body exoskeletons will give workers super strength. What’s the most important things for people to know about the full-body exoskeleton, which can turn an assembly-line worker into a superhero? Engineers have been working on this wearable robotics technology since 2000, when engineers began cobbling together experimental super-soldier suits for the U.S. Military. A 2010 prototype, which enabled the wearer to punch through wooden boards, earned the nickname “Iron-Man Suit” in the homage to the high-tech gear in the eponymous comic book and movies. But that bulky version kept the user tethered to the [...]
So you’ve made the decision, robotics process automation (RPA) is for your business. You’ve winnowed down a list of suitable vendors and are ready to start some serious shopping. Great. But before you plunge right in, there are some final things to consider. The following is a list of questions for would-be buyers to which they should give serious thought to before moving forward. They range from the existential — what role will your employees play as RPA expands within your organization? To the practical, such as training time frames. 1. RPA [...]
Have you decided to invest in replacement windows? What made you finally decide to take the leap? Was it the incredible energy saving benefits new windows offer? If so, you’re not alone. For a typical home, 40% of the annual energy budget goes toward heating and cooling costs, and replacing the windows in your home is great way to keep more of that money in your pocket. Since energy efficiency is such an important fact to consider when getting replacement windows, we are often asked, “How much better are triple pane windows [...]

IC thermal management introduction. This relates to the heat transfer problems encountered by an electrical engineer in semiconductor design.
The entertainment industry relies on "entertainment engineers," e.g. mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, and others for standards https://www.smpte.org. Perhaps more importantly, the movie industry requires Licensed Mechanical Engineers to safely innovate and amaze. Film sets are complex physical productions, most of which are not digital special effects. The film industry utilizes Licensed Mechanical Engineers to create complex props and various special effects that move, exploded, burn, and fly. The mechanical engineers specializes in designing and making a wide range of mechanical devices that fulfill a specific purpose for the film or set they are [...]
Licensed Mechanical Engineers Help You Ditch Suburbia Licensed Mechanical Engineers Ensure Vehicle Safety and Comfort The recreational vehicle industry (Fig. 1) is flourishing. People can use their RVs full time part, part time or travel the country for months at a time. A Licensed Mechanical Engineer (Licensed Mechanical Engineers Role in Manufacturing) makes certain that travel is safe and comfortable at the same time, without missing out on the comforts of home and your favorite kitchen. (Fig. 2) Recreational vehicles' kitchens are designed with adequate ventilation to ensure that no fires [...]

As energy efficient environmentally conscious engineers, we here at Glew Engineering do what we can to save energy and resources both around home and around the office. This might mean choosing products that are more environmentally friendly or energy efficient. It might mean using our surroundings to our advantage, like pulling cold air through a home or office at night so the building needs less air conditioning the next day. The most satisfying thing, though, is to employ our knowledge of mechanical engineering, materials science and thermal management to design custom hand-tooled [...]
Wind Load Comparison between CFD and ASCE 7 for Rooftop shapes Welcome back to our blog series on the phenomenon called Wind Load CFD Modeling and how it affects civil and mechanical engineers. Wind Load is the force that blowing wind exerts on any device or structure that extends above ground level. After an initial introduction to the factors that affect wind load on an object, I compared three different sets of wind load calculation methods using three simple objects, hypothetically placed on a 100-foot-tall building. Starting with generic drag equation [...]
