What Is the Best Thermal Break Material?

For structural engineers and architects, every aspect of building and construction projects must be planned down to the finest detail. There is much to consider for design, materials and more. As of late, more structural engineers and architects pay more attention to the energy efficiency of structures.

What is the Purpose of Vibration Isolation Pads?

Like many of the physical forces that we encounter every day, vibration is as abundant as they come. Whether it’s the vibrations in the air that create the sounds of our favorite tunes, or the natural rumble from a car engine, vibration is a key feature of the physical world around us. Yet, sometimes vibration is undesirable, and negatively affects the way we work and live day-to-day.

Vibration Isolation and Impact Shock Reduction in Mining Equipment

In the mining industry, longevity and efficiency are two important features that heavy equipment require. As technology continues to improve, and demands for raw materials increase, mining serves as an essential foundation for all types of industries. Even so, much of the mining equipment we use to this day remains the same, even over the course of a few decades.

Three Benefits of Using Thermal Break Material in Steel Structures

Down to the very finest details, structural engineers put much thought and consideration into the design process. From the architecture of the structure itself to the materials to be used, each piece is carefully selected to ensure the structure reaches certain standards and benchmarks. As structural engineers work, they must find the right resources to reach their goals.

What To Do When Impact Shock Affects Mining Equipment

From draglines to rock crushers, the mining industry utilizes a variety of massive machines. After all, mining involves rather large projects and processes as well. To break down the rock-solid materials we extract from the Earth, the mining industry requires powerful machines to help them do it.

How Fixed Bearings and Slide Bearings Work in Bridge Construction

An integral piece of modern infrastructure, bridges connect us to parts of the world that were previously unattainable for modern travel. Some of the most notable engineering feats in humanity come in the form of bridges. Whether it be the Golden Gate Bridge on the west coast, or the historic Brooklyn Bridge on the east coast, bridges make up an impressive array of construction accomplishments.

Why Low Frequency Isolation is Important for Aerospace Testing

From Mars rovers to satellite launches, there is little doubt that some of mankind’s most impressive feats come by way of aerospace engineering. To design shuttles, telescopes and even planetary helicopters, engineers must account for all the unique forces at play. Whether it be the effects of gravity, the solar wind or planetary, much goes into the engineering and planning process.
