Twenty-six metals are usually found in alloys. Combining five of those metals and varying the composition

Twenty-six metals are usually found in alloys. Combining five of those metals and varying the composition in 1% increments leads to 2,822,599,802,880 different possible compounds. For six metals, the number of possible combinations is 902,943,619,878,430. Not all of these combinations are stable, but adding more elements counterintuitively stabilizes simpler structures by increasing entropy, a measure of disorder. Creating new materials by using entropy as a driving force is an emerging topic in materials science. Initially, this concept was used to obtain high-entropy alloys (HEA), which typically consisted of five elements. These alloys exhibit intriguing structural properties (1, 2). Recently, the strategy of using the entropy of mixing to stabilize a new phase has been extended outside metallic alloys and into functional materials. By analogy to HEAs, single-phase samples of entropy-stabilized functional materials (ESFMs) have been loosely named as high-entropy materials. More accurately, a new phase formed because of the configuration entropy should be called “entropy stabilized.” By contrast, multicomponent conventional solid solutions have a high entropy of configuration ...

I almost groaned when I saw my name against the 2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary I

I almost groaned when I saw my name against the 2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary I was down to review. Some cars inspire, some are lustful, others have you leaping out of your chair eager to grab the keys and hit the road. On paper, this wasn’t one of them. And yet, from the moment I collected the car from Nissan’s representatives here in Sydney, I was totally beguiled. Let’s look at what the 50th is. It’s a $53,490 plus on-road costs celebration – a not-so-subtle nod to Nissan’s heritage as a manufacturer of sports cars. The ‘Z’ car dates back to 1969 when the original, the Datsun 240Z, first graced the world’s roads. That car, an instant classic, remains revered today, dare we suggest even enjoying iconic status in the pantheon of automotive history. It’s an ageing warrior, the 370Z, first making its presence felt on our roads in 2009. If that seems old in the automotive world, that’s because it is. Nissan, for its part, likes to milk every last drop from its stable (the R35 GT-R dates back to 2007!), so to have a design 10 years old still gracing the brand’s showrooms is not a stretch. The 50th Anniversary certainly stands out in dealerships, with its garish paint and sticke...

Installing Hooker Headers’ BlackHeart Cat-Back Exhaust for 1996-2004 Mustang GTs

Even though they’re getting pretty long in the tooth, 1996-2004 Mustangs are still some of the most popular cars to modify. Aftermarket firms, such as Hooker Headers, are still supporting this plentiful pony platform with new products. Updated designs, materials, and technology mean aftermarket offerings are constantly evolving. For example, when the 4.6L 2V Mustang debuted, most performance exhaust systems were fashioned from aluminized steel, with stainless steel reserved for the most exotic of kits and well-heeled enthusiasts. But, as higher-grade materials became more widely available at lower costs, contemporary exhaust systems utilized corrosion-resistant 409 stainless or high-end 304 stainless steel more frequently. Hooker’s latest cat-back in their BlackHeart exhaust category continues the modern trend of stainless cat-back systems featuring straight-through mufflers. It fits 1996-2004 Mustang GT’s via a unique rear hanger that accommodates both early and late models in the range. The kit’s 2.5-inch mandrel-bent tubing is offered in cost-effective 409 stainless steel or higher grade 304 stainless steel. The system’s small mufflers, 18-guage tubing, and minimal bends save...

Car buying? Here’s everything you need to know about finding the perfect vegan car. From leather-free

Car buying? Here’s everything you need to know about finding the perfect vegan car. From leather-free interior to trims, rims, and more. Drive cruelty-free. Charlotte has an upper second class honors in History from Oxford Brookes University and a postgraduate certificate in Cultural Heritage from Winchester University. She loves music, travel, and animals. Charlotte resides on the South coast of the UK. Buying a vegan-friendly, environmentally-friendly car is not an easy task; unfortunately, we do not live in a world where the perfect cruelty-free eco-friendly design exists. However, there are ways to make buying a car a little more ethical. This guide looks at the types of cars currently on the market, what you can do to “veganize” a car once you’ve bought it, and what the future of the automotive industry might bring. The short answer is not really, no. According to Arnold Clark, a new and used car company, “When you begin to understand that animal fats are used in the production of steel and rubber among many other components used in car manufacturing, you realize that it is currently almost impossible to buy a car that is 100% vegan-friendly.” But this doesn’t necessa...

Fiber laser has material manufacturer walking on air

Can a machine tool acquisition change the way a 50-year-old shop approaches production? When it’s a fiber laser system that reduces processing time more than 90 percent—cutting with air-assist gas at a fraction of the cost of nitrogen—the answer is clear. “The new fiber laser is a game-changer,” says Stuart Rumple, production manager at Doyle Equipment Manufacturing (Doyle; Quincy, IL). “This was a technology leap for our company, and it’s the best thing we’ve ever done to increase productivity. It has changed the way we think about how we manufacture.” Doyle replaced two older 1500 and 3000W CO2 lasers with a Cincinnati Inc. CL-940 fiber laser, and immediately reduced processing time from 64 hours to four on components for the company’s dry bulk material handling equipment. This fiber laser cutter has also cut operating costs and helped the company stay current on manufacturing techniques that lead to higher productivity. “Our results from operating the fiber laser with air assist have made us much more open to new ideas, equipment, and techniques,” Rumple says. “Now, we focus on processing the right material wit...

Ring Indoor Cam review: bring your Ring system inside your home

After years of making video doorbells and outdoor home security cameras, Ring has finally released a purpose-built camera for inside the walls of your home. The $59.99 Indoor Cam has many of the same features as Ring’s outdoor cameras, such as motion detection, two-way audio, and 1080p recording, but it’s smaller and less expensive. If you’re already a Ring customer, it’s an easy addition to your setup if you’re looking for a camera for inside your home that will integrate with the same app and cloud services you’re already using. But if you’re not already a Ring customer, there are even less expensive options that work just as well for an indoor security camera. The Indoor Cam’s design is similar to Ring’s Stick Up Cam, just smaller. The Indoor Cam doesn’t have the Stick Up Cam’s battery or weather sealing; it has to be plugged into an outlet to function, and it isn’t designed to be used outdoors at all. As a result, it takes up much less space on a shelf or mounted on a wall. The included base can be positioned on the bottom or the back of the camera providing the same amount of mounting options as Ring’s other cameras. Like the Stick Up Cam, the Indoor Cam can record 1080p vi...

Cambridgeshire mum forced to raise £1000 for autistic son’s pushchair

A Cambridgeshire mum is raising £1000 to buy a pushchair for her autistic son after she was denied one by the NHS. Claire Bedford, 32, was left to raise the cash herself after her paediatrician told her the only wheelchair available on the NHS wouldn’t fit the needs of her autistic son, three-year-old George. The pushchair – the McLaren Elite – doesn’t recline and doesn’t have any foot support. This is a particular problem for George, as he doesn’t wear shoes and socks, and he often tries to ram his feet in the front wheels. But the Special Tomato EIO, a specialist pushchair that would provide adequately for George, costs almost £700. Claire, who lives in Sawtry, also needs to buy support inserts and a rain cover, pushing the total amount required closer to £1000. She said: “It’s tough because you have to fight for what you need for your child. “All of these things that are basic for his safety are not covered on the NHS.”   Although George is not physically disabled, his autism means that he can often behave unpredictably. Even when he is with Claire, anything could send George into a state of panic, causing him to run away without any concern for his own welfare. ...
