New technique to 3D print metal alloys developed 22.9.2017 DNA: Top News
In a breakthrough, scientists have developed a technique to 3D print high-strength aluminium alloys that are used for aircraft and automobile parts. The method can be applied to additional alloy families such as high-strength steels and nickel-based superalloys difficult to 3D print using existing techniques. "We're using a 70-year-old nucleation theory to solve a 100-year-old problem with a 21st century machine," said Hunter Martin, PhD student at University of California, Santa Barbara in the US. Additive manufacturing of metals typically begins with alloy powders that are applied in thin layers and heated with a laser or other direct heat source to melt and solidify the layers. Normally, if high-strength unweldable aluminium alloys such as Al7075 or AL6061 are used, the resulting parts suffer severe hot cracking - a condition that causes the metal part to be pulled apart like a flaky biscuit. The new nanoparticle functionalisation technique solves this problem by decorating high-strength unweldable ...

After IRNSS-1H's failure, ISRO will resume satellite launches by December 22.9.2017 DNA: Top News
Nearly a month after its unsuccessful attempt at placing a navigation satellite into space, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is gearing up for its next PSLV mission in November-December. "We are planning the next PSLV launch in November- December," ISRO chairman A S Kiran Kumar told reporters on the sidelines of the 68th National Conference of Aeronautical Society of India here today.  On the failed PSLV-C39 mission in August, he said a committee was looking into it and "it is in the final stages of their findings". "It will also stipulate the exact problem. We are waiting for it," the ISRO chief said. Kumar asserted there was no problem with the launch vehicle. "Only that particular separation of the heat shield was the problem," he said. The ISRO chairman also maintained that there would not be any change in the control system of the launch vehicle.  The launch of ISRO's navigation satellite onboard its polar rocket had failed on August 31 following a technical glitch, just prior to its ...

Students help AAI solve toll booth woes 22.9.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Airports Authority of India has roped in students from the HL College of Commerce to monitor and collect data from the toll booth near the city's airports. A team of seven students, which was deployed at the toll booth from Thursday midnight, will keep a record of the number and types of vehicles passing by. "We have two projects related to the airport. In the toll booth project, the airports' authority wants to ascertain what types of vehicles come to airport and the time taken at the booth," said Dr Parag Shah, professor of Statistics, HL College of Commerce. "Depending on the data, different booths might be created for private and public vehicles. Seven students will work on the project for 48 hours in different shifts. They have been given shifts of 12 hours and after the project, we will collect an extensive data and submit to airport officials," he added. "Once this project is over, the students will make an analysis of passengers flying with different airline companies, their preferences and ...

19 fishermen rescued from boat adrift in sea 22.9.2017 DNA: India
The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) rescued 19 fishermen from the boat, Joecon 3 ex-Goa, after a net got entangled in its propeller, leading it to drift and wobble dangerously in the seas about 90 kilometre off Murud Janjira coast. The crew members managed to send out a distress call on September 19 and were rescued on September 21. They were brought to Dighi port. "After we got the distress call, we launched CG Dornier from Daman to conduct a search and sent our rescue ship ICGS Samrat. The aircraft located the drifting boat and the 19 crew members were rescued," said a ICG spokesperson. The fishermen have been told by the state not to venture into the sea, which is in churn because of heavy rains and strong winds. "The fishing boat had lost contact with the owner and was in danger, but we managed to establish their identity in the sea and brought them to safety," said the spokesperson. "We are in touch with the other fishing boats that are amid the sea and are standing by in case we get an SOS call," said the ...

Kalvari boost to India's naval prowess 22.9.2017 DNA: Top News
In a boost to India's maritime firepower, Kalvari, the first of the six Scorpene-class submarines, was on Thursday handed over to the Indian Navy by shipbuilder Mazgaon Dock limited, paving way for its commissioning soon. The INS Kalvari was delivered 12 years after the contract for construction and transfer of technology for six Scorpene submarines was signed with a French firm as collaborator in October 2005. Upgrading its submarine operations and naval fleet has been top priority for the Indian Navy in wake of the increased presence of Chinese vessels in the Indian Ocean Region. Indian Navy's satellites, Maritime surveillance aircraft and ships have been keeping an eye on around 12 Chinese naval units operating in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR). Kalvari is named after the dreaded Tiger Shark, a deadly deep sea predator of the Indian Ocean. The first Kalvari, which was also the first Indian submarine and commissioned into Indian Navy in 1967, was decommissioned in May 1996. The submarine can be part of ...

Indian robot Mitra made in China steals the show at IT event 21.9.2017 DNA: Popular News
An Indian robot made in China, which could recognise people by their nationalities and guide customers in a bank, today captivated Chinese manufacturers at an IT event held in the southern port city of Dalian. The five-feet Robot Mitra which was designed in Bengaluru but manufactured in the Chinese city of Shenzhen was presented as a model of merger of India's software prowess with China's hardware, Gagan Sabharwal, Senior Director, Global Trade Development, NASSCOM told PTI. Mitra is a perfect example of how Indian software and China's hardware can be merged, Sabharwal said, adding that the agreement helps to bring the small and medium-sized enterprises and startups of both the countries to launch into Internet of Things (IOT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), he said. Its inventors could not bring it to the first India-China Dalian Internet of Things (IoT) Conference which was well attended by top Chinese and Indian manufacturing firms as the airlines did not allow its heavy batteries to be ...

Mumbai: Main runway resumes operations; flight ops yet to normalise 21.9.2017 DNA: Top News
Flight operations are yet to normalise, though aircraft movements at the main runway of the Mumbai airport were restored on Wednesday night. Most flights are operating with more than one hour delay. The airport operator has removed the SpiceJet aircraft which had skidded after landing amid heavy rains on Tuesday.  The operations at runway 09/27 resumed at around 11:30pm after SpiceJet Boeing 737 was moved to the paved area and subsequently to a hanger, a Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) official said. In an exercise, which lasted for almost 24 hours, undertaken by the joint engineering team of national carrier Air India and the MIAL, the aircraft was removed from the runway at around 9:30 last night. Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha had earlier tweeted, "#AI team assisting #RescueOperation in removal of #SpiceJet acft from #BOM runway, the only airline in India to offer this type of facility."
