Scientists use computation to design a super-light crystalline aluminium

Aluminium is already highly prized for its conductivity, low melting point, strength when alloyed, imperviousness to rust and, above all, it’s extremely light weight. Now, researchers from Utah State University and Southern Federal University in Rostov-on Don, Russia have used computational design to conceive a form of crystalline aluminium with an even lower density than standard aluminium.

Composite to replace aluminium in gearbox housing design

When it comes to electric vehicles, keeping weight down is paramount in ensuring long range. In addition to the bodywork, drive components such as the housings, typically used in double reduction gearboxes, are of interest in terms of materials substitution and metal replacement.

The challenge, however, is maintaining the required rigidity levels at higher operating temperatures. In a ...
