Carbon Nanotubes Make Wind Turbine Blades Lighter and beta blockers and viagra Stronger


A scientist at Case Western Reserve University has discovered that adding carbon nanotubes to a traditional mix of plastics used in wind turbine blades could make them much lighter and stronger, meaning that future blades could be much more efficient while also requiring less maintenance.

The study found that carbon nanotubes are lighter per unit of volume than carbon fiber and aluminum and had five times more tensile strength than carbon fiber and 60 times more than aluminum.

If those carbon nanotubes are mixed with a polyurethane composite, the material lasts eight times longer than an epoxy reinforced with fiberglass and it was eight times stronger in fracture tests.  Compared to a vinyl ester reinforced with fiberglass (another material commonly used in wind turbine blades), the carbon nanotube material performed even better with far less fracture rates.

Carbon nanotubes have the potential to be very dangerous. What surety do the manufacturers provide that the nanotubes will not be released into the atmosphere? Just one nanotube inhaled into the lungs would be enough to dependablehealthcareservices.com trigger cancer in an individual with low tolerance to carbon nanotubes.

Can the levitra pfizer india cost of the nanotubes and increased production costs be offset by the efficiency savings? If not, then this is simply an interesting engineering tidbit.

Making the wind turbine blade is an important but not more important than to change people’s attitude toward them. Today people complain how the appearance of levitra ed those monster constructions destroys the sights of the landscape turbine. Only way to change people’s attitude towards these constructions is to introduce the selling propecia online fun.
