This technique is based on multistable shells which are developed by nanotechnology, surface mechanical attrition treatment (SMAT). The shape transitions of the bistable or multistable shells in the structure bring about volume changes to adjust buoyant forces in the water and enables the submerging and surfacing without weight changes of the structure. Functional devices can be attached to the submerging and surfacing system to achieve specific functions, such as underwater environment profile ...

Boiling heat transfer is used in a variety of industrial processes and applications, such as refrigeration, power generation, heat exchangers, cooling of high-power electronics components and cooling of nuclear reactors. Enhancements in boiling heat transfer processes are vital and could make these typical industrial applications more energy efficient. There is a universal demand for producing more effective heat removal systems involving boiling heat transfer. The current problem is that the he...

This technology presents a microfabrication process to produce nickel thin film which contains fine through-hole features. This process is cost-effective as it uses technologies and materials which are commonly used in semiconductor industries. Nickel thin film has advantages over products made by other commonly used materials, such as silicon or polymers, in aspects of mechanical strength, durability and reproducibility of experimental results.

Over the past decades, light-weight vehicles, e.g. electric cars, have been widely advocated in an effort to reduce energy usage and be more environmentally friendly. This emphasis on weight reduction has led to significant deterioration in the energy dissipation capabilities. As such, crashworthiness enhancement has once again become a critical issue. However, the design based on conventional structures is becoming more difficult, and the employment of high-strength materials much costlier. In ...

High wettability and photocatalytic effect are crucial elements for achieving self-cleaning surfaces. Self-cleaning surfaces minimize the need for labour intensive and costly cleaning and maintenance services. However, commercially available self-cleaning solutions are typically in the form of coatings that wear off with time and require re-application, which is costly and time consuming. In view of the limitation of current commercially available self-cleaning coatings, a polymeric resin additi...

Solid Surface materials are man-made materials that are typically made of a combination of resin, pigments and fillers. They are commonly used as countertops as alternatives to natural stones such as granite and marble, and engineered stones and quartz as they can be manufactured to be of a similar appearance. To aid in the ease of installation and to reduce handling and transportation costs, partial substitution with carefully selected fillers may be carried out. The weight of pieces manufactu...
