2018 was a long year, but it showed us plenty of superb chassis’s and PC builds.

2018 was a long year, but it showed us plenty of superb chassis’s and PC builds. To start off 2019 properly, especially if you’re making a new PC build, you should start with one of our gaming PC builds. Each and every one of these has been thoroughly vetted and verified for a high-quality build and enjoyable building experience. Regardless of your budget or needs, you’ll find the right computer case for you here. First up is our pick for the best Full Tower ATX Case, the Corsair Graphite 780T. This is easily the biggest, beefiest case on this list, and with that bulk comes plenty of expansion and cooling options. If you’re a fan of multi-drive setups, rejoice the Graphite 780T ships with a whopping six 3.5-inch bays and three side-mounted 2.5-inch bays. Whether you’re running a streamlined SSD build or a massive RAID setup, this gaming case should have the room you’re looking for. The three included fans are all 140mm, which is a bit larger than your typical 120mm standard. This means that the fans will push a bit more air than usual, and thanks to the fact that you get three out of the box, you’ll already have a fairly strong airflow setup from the very beginning. This large c...

Poly (acrylic acid sodium) grafted carboxymethyl cellulose as a high performance polymer binder for silicon anode in lithium ion batteries

Thank you for visiting nature.com. You are using a browser version with limited support for CSS. To obtain the best experience, we recommend you use a more up to date browser (or turn off compatibility mode in Internet Explorer). In the meantime, to ensure continued support, we are displaying the site without styles and JavaScript. The design of novel binder systems is required for the high capacity silicon (Si) anodes which usually undergo huge volume change during the charge/discharge cycling. Here, we introduce a poly (acrylic acid sodium)-grafted-carboxymethyl cellulose (NaPAA-g-CMC) copolymer as an excellent binder for Si anode in lithium ion batteries (LIBs). The NaPAA-g-CMC copolymer was prepared via a free radical graft polymerization method by using CMC and acrylic acid as precursors. Unlike the linear, one-dimensional binders, the NaPAA-g-CMC copolymer binder is expected to present multi-point interaction with Si surface, resulting in enhanced binding ability with Si particles as well as with the copper (Cu) current collectors, and building a stable solid electrolyte interface (SEI) layer on the Si surface. The NaPAA-g-CMC based Si anode shows much better cycle stabili...

DARPA awards additional $2.5M to LiquidPiston for development of 30kW X4 rotary diesel engine prototype

DARPA awards additional $2.5M to LiquidPiston for development of 30kW X4 rotary diesel engine prototype The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded LiquidPiston Inc., an advanced internal combustion engine technology company, an additional $2.5 million to continue development of its 30kW X4 rotary diesel engine prototype, bringing DARPA’s total funding of the engine technology to $6M. (Earlier post.) LiquidPiston received this award after meeting the objectives for Phase I of the program, which had focused on the clean sheet design of the X4, and demonstrating the structural integrity of the new engine platform while operating under compression ignition of diesel fuel. LiquidPiston engineers presented a development update on the engine at the SAE International WCX World Congress Experience in Detroit in April this year. LiquidPiston’s X Engines are non-Wankel rotary embodiments of the company’s High Efficiency Hybrid Cycle (HEHC). In contrast to other rotary engines, the X engine has a higher CR, and a stationary conical/spherical combustion chamber suitable for direct injection (DI) and compression ignition (CI). As with the Atkinson or Miller cycles, t...

This site is operated by a business or businesses owned by Informa PLC and all copyright resides with them. Informa PLC’s registered office is 5 Howick Place, London SW1P 1WG. Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. Check valves are among the simplest and most widely used valves in fluid power. They allow fluid to flow in one direction but not the other. They are used for control functions and zero-leak versions are widely used for load holding because of their simplicity and reliability. Adding to their versatility is that they come in conventional line mounted and cartridge versions. Typical thread-in cartridge style check valves are large and mount to the surface of a manifold block. This surface mounting adds complexity and cost from the additional machining or drilling of internal passages required to integrate the valve into the circuit. When used as a pressure-sensing isolation check valve, the need for zero leakage and flow rates greater than 4 lpm (1 gpm) are not needed. Standard check valves are available in a C8-2 or C10-2 cavity configurations, but these are large and costly, given the number that would be needed. Geometry of the cavity required can a...

Monday Night Raw Date: May 27, 2019 Location: Sprint Center, Kansas City, Missouri Commentators: Michael Cole,

Monday Night Raw Date: May 27, 2019 Location: Sprint Center, Kansas City, Missouri Commentators: Michael Cole, Corey Graves, Renee Young This is going to be an interesting show but that might be the case without the show actually being interesting. It’s the first show after the rather great Double Or Nothing event, meaning WWE might be trying to show that they still have it. At the same time though it’s also Memorial Day, meaning the effort might not be there. On the third hand, there are only two shows left before Super ShowDown and some building could be useful. Let’s get to it. Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar are here for the cash-in announcement, despite a four way #1 contenders match being announced for tonight. eval(ez_write_tag([[300,250],’wrestlingrumors_net-medrectangle-4′,’ezslot_1′,116,’0′]));Here’s Kofi Kingston to open things up, seemingly fine six days after the big beating from Dolph Ziggler, which we see in video form. Kofi is here because he’s a fighting champion but also because he wants to deal with Mr. Money In The Bank. He’ll fight anyone anytime and he wants Brock to cash in right here right now. eval(ez_write_tag([[300,250...

Knife Angel travelling to Birmingham to spread anti-knife crime message

A giant sculpture made from thousands of knives is set to arrive in Birmingham on the latest leg of its UK tour. The Knife Angel will be placed in the city’s Victoria Square where it will stand for the next four weeks. Thousands of people will pass the thought-provoking sculpture during the next month, which was created in response to the surge in knife crime in the UK. It is due to arrive in Birmingham city centre tomorrow after being moved from Coventry where it was outside the cathedral over Easter. The impressive 27ft Knife Angel was created by artist Alfie Bradley at the British Ironwork Centre, near Oswestry in Shropshire. Mr Bradley has received glowing praise for his efforts to raise awareness of the devastating effects of knife crime. The arrival of the Knife Angel in Birmingham will be particularly poignant as the city has been rocked by more more than 250 stabbings already this year amid a wave of violence. The second city was prioritised to host the creation ahead of others following the shocking rise in stabbings. Primary school teacher Ryan Wane, 26, was the latest stab victim in the city over the weekend when he was seriously injured during a mugging. There...

Medical Applications of Stainless Steel 304 (UNS S30400)

By their very nature, devices designed for medical uses must meet extremely stringent design and fabrication criteria. In a world increasingly focused on  lawsuits and retribution claims for injury or damage caused by medical malpractice anything that comes into contact with or surgically implanted within the human body must perform exactly as designed, without fail. The design and fabrication process for medical devices poses some of the most challenging material science questions and engineering problems for the medical industry to overcome. With such broad applications, medical devices come in all shapes and sizes to perform a raft of different jobs and therefore a diverse range of materials are employed by scientists and engineers to help meet the most stringent of design specifications. Stainless steel is one of the most commonly used materials in the manufacture of medical devices, and in particular Stainless Steel 304.
