Matmatch, an online materials sourcing database, helps us take a deeper look into Elon Musk’s Boring Company—and what the value of material selection is when designing wear and corrosion resistant tunneling tools.
It’s taken 15 years to devise a way to make iron nanoparticles all the same size, but the rewards could be timeless.
Engineers rely on neutrons to peer inside advanced materials and devices such as fuel cells to better understand and improve them. But a critical shortage of a rare form of helium (helium-3) used for detecting neutrons, which are difficult to spot...
TNT (aka trinitrotoluene) was first prepared in 1863 by German chemist Julius Wilbrand, but its full potential as an explosive wasn’t discovered until 1891. It has been in use as a munitions explosive since 1902. But the Environmental Protection...
