A new wave of underwater technology is coming to the surface, as oceanographers are turning to new materials and methods for constructing engines from scratch.
Key points:A new wave is bringing new techniques for building engines from the sea.
Experts say the technology will allow for cheaper and more efficient submarine enginesThe technique is gaining popularity because it requires less maintenance than traditional sea craftA new way of building engines is also helping to speed up submarine developmentThe process is still not well understood and new materials, including carbon fiber and Kevlar, have been used in some applications, but researchers say the process is gaining traction as it’s gaining popularity.
A new sea technology is changing the way that submarines are built, said marine engineering professor John Waddington.
“What I think is really exciting is that a lot of the submarine engines are being built from the bottom up, from the materials and the techniques that we’ve developed,” Waddingson told ABC News.
“Now that’s not the case a lot more, and that’s a good thing, because it means that we can go back to building submarines from scratch, without having to worry about any of the complexity that has been associated with building a submarine.”
New technologies are also helping the submarine industry to speed things up, said Waddeston.
“We know that submarines can be very heavy, and they can take a lot to get up to the speed of light, so we’re looking at ways of using new materials to reduce that load, which allows us to use a much smaller submarine than we would have otherwise,” he said.
“In terms of making things lighter, we’ve got to reduce the weight of the engine.
We’re working on making it as lightweight as possible, but also making it light enough to be very efficient in terms of propulsion.”
New materials, new methods, and a new way to build enginesThe process involves using carbon fiber, Kevlar and other new materials.
A team at University of Queensland has also developed a new type of material called K-Cup, which is flexible and flexible at the same time, meaning it can be made to take on the shape of a propeller.
“There’s this new material called Kevlar that we’re using in a couple of different ways.
We’ve made a couple in Kevlar composites, and there’s also this kind of Kevlar material that’s being developed, called KCBK,” said Waddon.”KCBK has a number of properties that are really exciting, which are, in fact, similar to Kevlar but have a number different properties,” he added.”
The most obvious one is the fact that KCBL can bend, it can change shape.
It can also deform to take the shape it wants, so it’s a lot like Kevlar.”
Waddington and his team are using this new technique to build a new generation of submarine engines from a composite material called ABS.
“So you have a composite which is about the same weight as steel, and then you have the ABS, which has been developed to deform so it can bend and change shape,” Waddon said.
“It’s a very complex process to do, and the ABS is actually one of the most important components in the submarine engine.”
It’s the only thing we’re able to use to create these engines, and it’s the one that really has the most potential to do so because it has the properties to deform in a way that we don’t see with Kevlar.
“This is a material that is extremely lightweight, so the way we can actually use it is to use ABS to bend the structure of the composite.”
Waddon and his colleagues are using the ABS to create a very flexible and light submarine engine from a composite material.
“That’s a big challenge for this type of technology, because you’re making these engines from one piece of ABS, and you need to make sure that you’re using a material which is both rigid and flexible,” he explained.
“You’re actually trying to use that composite, the ABS composite, to deform, which means you need a very low friction surface, and very thin, very lightweight material, so you need very thin ABS.”
The ABS composite used to build the engine has properties that make it particularly strong and flexible, but it can also be very hard to make it strong enough to bend.
“One of the things that ABS composite does is it’s very hard, and if you try to bend it too much, you can damage the ABS in the process,” Wadding said.
In this case, Waddons team are making a composite that is a bit of a challenge.
“Basically, what you have is a composite, and we’re actually bending it with the ABS on a very thin layer, and so the ABS just needs to deform the composite so that it can deform a little bit,” he continued.
“And so the final result is actually a composite of ABS and ABS composite.”
