Researchers Unveils A Tougher Fiber That Combines The Elasticity Of Rubber With The Strength Of A Metal

North Carolina State University researchers have developed a fiber that combines the elasticity of rubber with the strength of a metal, resulting in a tougher material that could be incorporated into soft robotics, packaging materials or next-generation textiles. "A good way of explaining the material is to think of rubber bands

Engineers Develops New Coating Strategy For Metal That Self-Heals Within Seconds When Scratched, Scraped Or Cracked

It's hard to believe that a tiny crack could take down a gigantic metal structure. But sometimes bridges collapse, pipelines rupture and fuselages detach from airplanes due to hard-to-detect corrosion in tiny cracks, scratches and dents. A Northwestern University team has developed a new coating strategy for metal that self-heals within
