The plane is made mostly of carbon fiber, which together with other lightweight materials, accounts for more than 50%.. Continue reading [..]
In this turbofan engine, the amount of air pressure in the bypass is three times that which reaches the combustion chamber in the core of the engine. Although not as powerful as the turbojet, the turbofan is quieter and efficient features that justify their use on passenger aircraft.. Continue reading [..]

Potent Trent 970 Airbus A380 were subjected to rigorous testing to ensure that they meet the goals set as fuel consumption, exhaust gases, noise and safety. The Rolls-Royce Trent is the turbine diameter greater than any other Rolls-Royce.. Continue reading [..]
Faster than a bullet, goes beyond the sound barrier and looks like a missile with wheels. And is called Bloodhound supersonic car is the prototype of perhaps destined to pulverize the world record for land speed (1228 km / h) obtained in 1997.. Continue reading [..]
In 2009, there is still someone who invests on a steam car and try to beat a record set more than a century ago: that is the singular challenge of a team of British engineers. (Alessandro Bolla, April 22, 2009)
A car capable of achieving the remarkable speed is 270 km / h is not a novelty, unless the fireball is not driven by a particular engine, how can it be a steam engine …. A team of British engineers is building this unique vehicle with the goal to beat the speed record for steam cars established in 1906 by American Stanley Steamer.. Continue reading [..]
