Additive manufacturing, or AM, is on a fast path to revolutionizing the advanced manufacturing industry by changing the way companies make products. Whether it is the first FDA-approved, 3-D-printed drug or complex fuel nozzles for airplanes, Ohio is leading the way when it comes to making those innovations happen

CIRTES

Originally in the mid-1980s, Claude Barlier conducted research in Nancy on the Actarus machining monitoring process and on the Additive Manufacturing process (rapid prototyping, 3D printing) Stratoconception, on which he filed the first patents. In November 1991, in order to develop his patented research, Claude Barlier created CIRTES in Saint-Die-des-Vosges.

How to Find Best Material Takeoff & Estimating Company

Article | February 18, 2020

Construction material takeoff is considered as a very important part of the overall cost estimation in any construction project. Without a price estimation, it is not only difficult to provide a layout but lack of material estimation also raises a lot of doubt later. In this process, the contractors are required to use the actual blueprints of the building to be prepared and calculate the quantity of material that will be required for the overall price and the supplies that are needed. According to this information the project budget is calculated later, which is the main reason it is very important to have an accurate estimate.

15 sites in the frame to become home to the UK’s prototype fusion energy plant

Article | February 18, 2020

The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) has revealed the long list of sites under consideration for development of the UK’s prototype fusion energy plant.An open call for sites to host the Spherical Tokomak for Energy Production (Step) facility was opened last year and compliance check of those nominated has led to publication of the long list. According to the UKAEA, moving fusion from research and development to design and delivery is an important part of the UK’s ambition to be a world leader in sustainable, low-carbon energy. Fusion has the potential to provide an abundant source of low-carbon energy by copying the processes that power the sun and stars. UKAEA has said that this new technology will play an important role alongside established renewable technologies such as wind and solar.Step programme director Paul Methven said: “STEP is about building on the amazing science done over decades in fusion and translating that into a real prototype power plant that paves the way for this fantastic new energy source.

4 Ways to Curb Distracted Workers

Article | February 18, 2020

Earlier this month was National Day of Unplugging. Around the globe, people took a 24-hour detox from technology in order to connect more with the people around them. Naturally, the challenge took place from Friday night to Saturday night, because most people are unable to unplug at work. Or are they? We tend to think of the work environment as somewhere where technology is good. We need it in order to get our jobs done. The average office worker will spend almost 1,700 hours a year in front of a computer screen-and office workers will spend an average of a whopping six and a half hours a day at their computer or laptop.

Influencing the debate around climate change and CO2?

Article | February 18, 2020

As the world’s population wakes up to the significant risks and challenges created by climate change I am rightly challenged over what actions ICE has taken to tackle the issue and lead the debate. I promised last time I wrote that I would focus this installment on that very issue. However, I think it is important to highlight why ICE’s position and more broadly the position of civil engineers around the world is so important.
